Ford has issued two separate recalls for about 55,000 vehicles in total.
The larger recall involves the 2015-2016 Ford Transit. Roughly 51,500 of the vans are being called back as the rear seat belt buckles are being damaged when heavy objects are placed on top of them, causing them to not buckle correctly.
Ford says it is unaware of any accidents or injuries as a result of this issue. Dealers will replace or repair the affected belt buckles, free of charge.
In a second recall action, Ford is calling back 3,700 F-150 pickups fit with multi-contour seats from the 2016 model year. In those vehicles with the multi-contour seats, the passenger seat may incorrectly identify an adult as a child, suppressing the front passenger airbag in the event of a collision.
Like the vans, Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. The occupant classification software will be updated for free by a Ford dealer to fix the problem.
