Firm Recalls Transits for Seat Cushions

By Staff Writer November 26, 2018

National Van Builders Inc. (is recalling 475 2015-2018 Ford Transit vehicles equipped with Freedman GO-ES Foldaway Seats, part numbers 43705, 45467, 48923, and 75719.

When the back seat cushion is rotated from the stowed position to the upright position, the seat cushion may not remain locked into place when under load, such as in a crash or a sudden stop. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems."

National Van will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the foldaway seat, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November.
