Ford has just issued a big recall that will be affecting hundreds of thousands of vehicles. According to the recall, 200,000 specific models need immediate attention.

"Owners of more than 200,000 examples of the industry's best-selling pickup and one of its most popular SUVs will receive letters asking them to bring their vehicles back to Ford dealers to have bolts holding their seatbacks in place inspected, re-torqued and potentially replaced," according to reports.

The bolts in question affect the 2016 Ford F-150 pickups and 2016 Ford Explorer SUVs. The bolts are also on seats in vehicles that have power seating.

Ford says drivers are at risk of having these bolts come loose and potentially fall out. So, if you have a Ford model but it does not have power seats, you need not worry about this warning.

"Vehicles affected by the recall include 2016 F-150s built in Michigan and Missouri and 2016 Explorers assembled in Illinois between January 22 and April 19, 2016. The recall affects about 177,000 vehicles in the U.S., with the remainder scattered between Canada and Mexico," reported one news outlet.

At this time, no major injuries have been reported. Ford is asking anyone who thinks. They are at risk to please bring their car or truck to an authorized dealer for inspection.
