Aug. 16, 2019—Ford has recalled over 108,000 midsize cars in North America, according to a report by CBS New York.

The cars are being recalled for a problem that could stop seat belts from holding people in a crash. The recall covers certain Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ cars from the 2015 model year. 

The seat belt cables can lose strength due to heat buildup and may not restrain passengers.

Ford says it’s aware of one injury from the problem. Dealers will apply a protective coating to the cables. Owners will be notified starting Sept. 9.
