RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1990 Taurus and Mercury Sable and 1991 Explorer vehicles for an issue with the front seat rigid seat belt buckles. Some buckles will not release, some will not latch at all, and some may not latch fully. All concerns pose safety risks to occupants.
