Ford recalls 8,000 Ranger vehicles over seat belt issues

Ford Motor Co. issued a recall for nearly 8,000 units of its 2019 Ranger SuperCab in North America over safety issues concerning right-front seat belt, the company announced on Friday.

The automotive giant stated that was not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to the improperly assembled safety belts. All of the affected vehicles were built in a single day in June at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne. All of the affected cars will be repaired free of charge, the statement said.

Last month, Ford recalled around 1.2 million Explorer SUVs due to a suspension issue. At that time, the company also called for a retraction of 200,000 F-150s over a transmission calibration problem, as well as approximately 8,500 Econoline vehicles due to a loss of motive power issue.
