2020 Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,600 model-year 2020 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs

The Problem: The attachment bracket for the second-row driver-side head restraint may not have been sufficiently welded to the seat frame, reducing its strength and inadequately restraining an occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Ford said it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injury related to this condition.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the bracket, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the autommaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
