Ford Motor Company is recalling nearly 2 million 2015-2018 F-150 trucks because of a seat belt defect that could result in a vehicle fire. The defect involves front seat belt pretensioners that may cause excessive sparks when deployed. Those sparks may ignite the gases exhausted inside the lower portion of the B-pillar, which can result in the insulation and carpet catching fire.
The recall was issued after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration launched an investigation into the matter after receiving reports of five fires due to the defect, including three that engulfed and destroyed the vehicle. Ford has identified at least 23 reports of smoke or fire, but no injuries or accidents connected to the defect.
