Ford also announced two smaller safety compliance recalls– for four 2017 Ford Police Interceptor utility vehicles and three 2016 Ford Escapes. The police vehicles were built at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant on Jan. 20 and may be missing seat attachment studs in the second row of seats. The company says it isn’t aware of any crash or injury associated with the problem, but said the vehicles’ seats might not adequately restrain passengers in a crash. The Escapes were built at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant on Dec. 18, 2015, and feature driver knee airbags that might not inflate as intended due to a lack of material necessary to produce inflator gas. Incompletely filled airbags could increase risk of injury to a driver in a crash, but Ford said it isn’t aware of any related injury.
