Ford Recalls 2 Million Trucks Because Seat Belts Can Cause Fires
Seriously? This is a bit bizarre and I'll have to say this is the first time I've heard of a seat belt catching fire. But, that's exactly what is going on here with the latest Ford truck recall.
Apparently the belt pretensioners that tighten before a crash can cause enough friction to ignite gases in the support system, lighting insulation and carpet on fire. The recall includes certain Ford trucks produced between 2015 and 2018. Vehicle owners will be notified of the recall beginning on September 24th.
