Lincoln recall: 100k SUVs recalled for seat belt warning malfunction


Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2020-2023 Lincoln Aviator and 2020-2022 Lincoln Corsair vehicles equipped with a Revel Audio System. For this Lincoln recall, when the driver’s seat belt is not buckled and the vehicle is started, the seat belt warning system may activate the audible warning chime for an insufficient amount of time of less than 4 seconds. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

An audible warning chime that does not properly alert of an unbelted seat belt can increase the risk of injury during a crash.

Dealers will update the audio control module software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed February 6, 2023. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 22C35.

At the time of posting this article, the 2022 Lincoln Aviator has four recalls. the 2022 Lincoln Corsair has three recalls. If you own a 2020-2023 Aviator or 2020-2022 Corsair, be sure to consult the NHTSA recalls portion of the website and type in the specific VIN of your car, truck or SUV to see if this current recall applies to your vehicle.
