Ford is recalling about 38,000 of its 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs due to a recalled defective seat in the second row.
The seat in the second row may lack a reinforcement bracket, the automaker said. If the bracket is missing, the seat may not be properly held in the event of a crash, which may increase the risk of injury. From accidents and injuries in this context, Ford is not aware.
Owners of affected vehicles should move the seat as far back as possible from the front of the vehicle until a repair is performed.
