Ford Recalling 1,658 Explorers

February 09, 2011

WASHINGTON - Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1,658 model-year 2011 Explorers that were manufactured from July 15 through Dec. 13 of 2010. The second-row seats on the recalled SUVs don't meet all federal standards and pose a safety risk in the event of a crash, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. 

Ford dealers will repair the seats free of charge. The recall is expected to get under way around Feb. 14. 

Vehicle owners can reach Ford at (866) 436-7332.
