Approximately 7,600 model-year 2019 Ford Ranger SuperCab pickup trucks are being recalled due to seat belt issues. The right-front seat belt may have been improperly assembled and may not adequately restrain occupants in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 888-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To fix the problem, dealers will inspect and replace the right-front seat belt assembly, if necessary.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
