Recalls for 2006 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury
2006 MERCURY MONTEREY
NHTSA Campaign ID: 13V081000
Component: SEATS
Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company
Manufacture Dates: 03/24/2003 - 11/07/2006
Potential Units Affected: 196667
Defect Description:
Ford is recalling certain model year 2004-2007 Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles manufactured from March 24, 2003, through November 7, 2006, equipped with a third row seat and originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. The third row stowable seat can experience corrosion and structural degradation at the seat anchor mechanism mounted to the rear wheel wells. As a result of the corrosion, the third row seat may not fully latch into its seating position.
Consequence:
In the event that the vehicle is crashed into from the rear, an unlatched seat may increase the risk of personal injury.
Action to take:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install new third row seat latch striker mounting brackets, free of charge. The recall began on March 28, 2013. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332.
