Report Receipt Date: MAR 07, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V081000 
Component(s): SEATS 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 196,667

Manufacturer: Ford
SUMMARY:
Ford is recalling certain model year 2004-2007 Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles manufactured from March 24, 2003, through November 7, 2006, equipped with a third row seat and originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. The third row stowable seat can experience corrosion and structural degradation at the seat anchor mechanism mounted to the rear wheel wells. As a result of the corrosion, the third row seat may not fully latch into its seating position.
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event that the vehicle is crashed into from the rear, an unlatched seat may increase the risk of personal injury.
