USA: Potential Seat Failures For T'Bird, Taurus and Sable

Ford Motor Company will tell their dealers that they must stop the sale, demonstration and delivery of certain 2004 Ford Taurus, Thunderbird and Mercury Sable models due to potential seat failures.
All Taurus and Sable models built at either the Atlanta or Chicago plants assembly from 17 November 2003 through 15 January 2004 with driver power seats are involved in the safety recall.
In addition, Thunderbird models with a driver's side power seat built from 15 December 2003 through 20 January 2004 are included in the safety recall.
The safety recall is due to a defective welding process in the power seat track between the track recliner bracket and the lower support bracket. According to Ford, this may cause a squeak/rattle and could develop into a seat frame failure where upon the seat may come loose. Should the vehicle be involved in an accident, the seat failure may be lead to an occupant restraint failure causing serious injury.
Dealers who sell a vehicle involved in this safety recall can be assessed a $5,000. fine per occurrence.
