seat belt

Is it just me or is fords seat belt suck. The worst thing is the stupid thing won't retrack, so I end up shutting it in the door all the time. I noticed the wifes sport track does the same thing. Not to mention that they never seem to be comfortable. Maybe it's just me. Is there a recall on the seat belts?

Yea they do now that I think about it. Or it'll lock up when I bend over to pick something up off the floor of the car or reach for the glove box.

I have no problem with the seatbelts in the Focus. Except sometimes it bothers my neck. But in the Ranger it's a different story. Every tiny bump they lock. Errrrrr.........

You don't wear your seat belt? Get in a few wrecks and you will. Mine hasn't bothered me yet.

Never had a problem with any seatbelt from all the Fords I've owned.

When your throw out of your car and get a broken back as my niece did; you will wear your seat belt if your lucky enough to ride in a car again.
