RECALL! 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ sedans

Just thought that I would let everyone know that there has been a recall ordered for some 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ sedans.

The issue is the vehicles' seatback frames do not comply with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards. Certain driver and front passenger seatback assemblies may have been produced with substandard welds joining the seatback recliner mechanism to the seatback frame. This could increase the risk of injury in a collision.

No injuries or crashes have been reported.

Dealers will replace the seatback frame for free.

Find out if your MKZ is affected by calling this number: 866-436-7332

So I wonder what would actually happen in a crash. Would the seat just recline all the way back or lunge forward? Would it break off altogether?

I am always curious how they find out about these problems before people get hurt. I guess people report it and thank gosh that they haven't been hurt by it yet.
