2020 FORD TRANSIT - SEAT BELTS:FRONT:RETRACTOR

National Van Builders, Inc. (National Van Builders) is recalling certain vehicles based on 2019-2020 Ford Transit and 2019 Ram Promaster vans equipped with Freedman GO-ES foldaway seats. The seat belt retractor block out zone may have not been set correctly, potentially resulting in a seat belt that may not properly secure the occupant. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."

  • Hazard
    An unsecured occupant has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    National Van Builders will notify owners, and dealers will replace the retractors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 26, 2020. Owners may contact Freedman customer service at 1-800-443-4540 or National Van Builders customer service at 1-800-527-7477.
