    Ford Recalling 335k+ 2017 Ford Explorers

      ...Sharp seats could cut you...

    Ford is recalling 338,332 Ford Explorers across North America for an improperly formed seat frame edge. The recall covers certain 2017 model year Explorers. The seat frame edge is sharp and could cause injury if driver or passenger reaches between the center console and the seat.  Ford is aware of 31 reports of hand injuries related to this recall. Dealers will install a flocked tape and a tab on the inside edge of the power seat frame.

    Sounds like a cheap way to NOT address the issue correctly.  Ford should just replace the seat frame instead.

    Sloppy manufacturing.... at least the seat frames aren't breaking.   That was a problem w/ WJ Grand Cherokees that was never a recall but a common issue...mine broke at about 90k miles, while I was driving in Phoenix..ended up almost in the back seat...

    This is just bean counters cutting every corner and not realizing we are not in the 70's anymore, today you get sued over every little thing that can hurt you.

    Apparently they have not learned from the fiasco that was the Ford Pinto exploding gas tank of the early 1970s.
