Had Problems With Loose Driver’s Side Seat For Several Years. Seat Would Rock On Frame. Seat Frame Finally Broke Away From Track Assembly On 4 June. Disassembly Of Seat Showed 3 Of 4 Bolt-holes Holding Seat To Track Had Totally Disintegrated, The Lf Seat Track Link Had Snapped, And There Were Several Stress Cracks (one Completely Through!) In The Seat Frame Itself. Have Researched 120 Separate Incidents Of This Seat Failure Condition On Odi Consumer Reports On-line Database On Full-sized fords, Lincolns, And Mercurys In Years 1990-1996. Dealer Said My Car Was “out Of Warranty” And Would Offer No Satisfaction/remuneration For This Obvious Defect. Would Like To Share My Analysis Of These Relevant Odi Listings So Nhtsa/odi Can Pursue This With ford. Have Compiled Them Into A 48-page Document And Also A Spreadsheet To Total The Figures. This Is A Very Dangerous Condition Possibly Affecting Many Thousands Of Vehicles, Including Many crown Victorias Used As Police Cruisers. Several Database Listings Show “seats Collapsed” “seats Fly Off Track” And Seats Separate From Car Floor During Accidents. I Am A 3rd Generation Auto Mechanic And Managed A Goodyear Auto Repair Facility For 6+ Years. I Know Cars Very Well And Have Never Seen Seat Assemblies Built As Poorly As This One! Judging From The Odi Database, I Am Far From Alone In Having This Defect On A ford Motor Company Product. They Must Have Reengineered The Seat Since The Problems Drop Off Noticeably After 1994. I Did Not Receive Any Recall Notice From ford Nor Could Discover Any Recalls In The Nhtsa/odi Db For This Reason. There Were A Few Service Bulletins. But, Nothing Resembling A Recognition Of The Seriousness Of This Problem. A Driver Cannot Control A Car If His Seat Is Broken. This Also Defeats The Proper Workings Of The Seat Belts And Other Passenger Restraint Systems. I Would Appreciate A Call Or E-mail Reply To Discuss This With Nhtsa/odi And Pursue This With You.

(1.) My Car Is A 1992 ford, crown Victoria Lx. – I Got Into The Vehicle And Leaned Back On The Back Of The Seat To Get Something Out Out Of My Pants Pocket. As I Pressed On The Back Of The Seat There Was A Metalic “snap” Sound And The Back Of The Seat Flopped Back 3 To 4 Inches On The Driver Door Side. Later On Viewing The Seat From The Front Of The Car In Front Of The Brake Peddle I Was Able To Determing That A Welded In Circular, Threaded, Metal, Tapped Fastener, (a Custom Made Nut) Had Torn Through The Pressed Metal Fram That Attached It To The Motorized Portion Of The Seat. The Resulting Hole In The Pressed Metal Frame Component Was About One Inch In Diameter. (2) The Failure Of The Seat Makes The Vehicle Impossible To Drive. (3.) I Have Checked For Recalls And Found None Relating To The Seat Except For An Electrical Failure. I Haven’t Repaired The Vehicle As Yet But I Will Likely Go To A Automobile Recycling Yard And Look For Another Seat. Of Course Inspecting First For The Same Failure. Also, As Near As I Can Tell This Vehicle Was Never In An Accident . And It Only Has 84,000. Miles On It.*ak
