Ford is recalling about 16,100 model year 2014 Transit Connect vehicles for a seatbelt defect.

In the affected vehicles, the upper seatbelt bolts may have been improperly torqued, allowing them to loosen over time.

If the fasteners loosen over time, there is an increased risk of injury during a crash.

Ford will notify owners affected by the recall, and dealers will replace the original seatbelt fasteners with properly torqued fasteners, free of charge.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.
