Default Ford F-150 Seat Belts Might Be Catching Fire

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation focusing on the seat belts of the 2015-2018 Ford F-150 to see if they are prone to catch fire – with five real-world cases of the seat belts bursting into flames leading to the probe.

Based on the title and the opening statement above, this Ford F-150 investigation might seem like a joke, but it is not. There is a possibility that the electronic pretensioner component of the seat belt system made by Takata in the 2015 through 2018 F-150 could have caused five fires in privately owned trucks and if the NHTSA finds that the component is prone to start more fires going forward, a recall could be required. That is bad news for Ford, since the company sold roughly 2,000,000 trucks with this system over the past four model years, but of course, the company is cooperating with the feds on this investigation.
