Owner Notification Program B93 Floor Pan Reinforcement
Check the Ford website to see if your VIN is affected.

Affected Vehicles:
1989/90 Bronco and F-Series SuperCab with Captain Chair Option

Ford Motor Company is providing a no-charge Service Program, Number (B93), to owners of certain 1989-1990 Bronco and F-Series Super Cab trucks equipped with captain chair option.

Reason For This Program
The seat tracks on your truck are attached to non-reinforced sections of the floorpan. This may cause the floor pan to crack at the seat track attachment. At no cost to you, your dealer will install floor pan reinforcements on your truck.

How Long Will It Take?
The time needed for this service is about 3 hours. However, due to service scheduling times, your dealer may need your truck for one full working day.

Call Your Dealer
Ask for a service date and if parts are in stock. If your dealer does not have the parts in stock, they can be ordered before scheduling your service date. Parts would be expected to arrive within a week. When you bring your truck in, give the dealer this letter. If you misplace this letter, your dealer will still do the work, free of charge.

Refunds
If you paid to have this service done before the date of this letter, Ford is offering a full refund. For the refund, please show your paid work-order to your Ford dealer.

Technical Instructions

yo SEATTLE!
YW
safety recall involving a motor vehicle or an item of motor vehicle equipment can be independently conducted by a manufacturer or ordered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In either case, the manufacturer must file a public report describing the safety-related defect or noncompliance with a Federal motor vehicle safety standard, the involved vehicle/equipment population, the major events that resulted in the recall determination, a description of the remedy, and a schedule for the recall. NHTSA monitors each safety recall to ensure the manufacturers provide owners safe, free, and effective remedies according to the Safety Act and Federal regulations. Manufacturers are obligated to attempt to notify owners of recalled products. For vehicles, that means manufacturers merge their own records of vehicle purchasers with current state vehicle registration information. For equipment, where state registration records do not exist, manufacturers are obligated to notify their distribution chain and known purchasers of the recalled equipment. However, even if you do not receive a notification, if your vehicle, child restraint, or other item of equipment is involved in a safety recall, the manufacturer is obligated to provide a free remedy.

Ford Owner Notification Program, Now called customer satisfaction program is another name for recalls Without NHTSA involvement (yet) & TSB
a typical example is:
Ford is proactively announcing a customer satisfaction program to update the software of the regenerative brake system of some 2010-model Ford Fusion Hybrids and Mercury Milan Hybrids.

Dearborn, Mich., Feb. 4, 2010 – Today, we are announcing a customer satisfaction program to update the software of the regenerative brake system of some 2010-model Ford Fusion Hybrids and Mercury Milan Hybrids.

We have received reports that some drivers have experienced a different brake feel when the hybrid’s unique regenerative brakes switch to conventional hydraulic braking. While the vehicles maintain full braking capability, customers may initially perceive the condition as loss of brakes.

To be clear, the Fusion and Milan Hybrids’ brake system maintains full conventional brakes and full ABS function even as the customer sees visual indicators and hears a chime. The software threshold to transition from regenerative brakes to conventional brakes can cause the system to transition to conventional brakes unnecessarily.

The software upgrade will reduce unnecessary occurrences of the vehicle switching from regenerative braking to conventional hydraulic brakes.

Customers with affected vehicles will receive a notice in the mail. We are asking owners of affected vehicles to have vehicle software reprogrammed at dealers at no charge.

There have been no injuries related to this condition.

Read my previous post of a question and miesk5's response above on posts #10 & #11 that a Recall and an Owner Notification are different, in whether it has National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involvement (mandate).

yo, In addition; forgot to mention the TSB
There are two types of motor vehicle recalls. The first is when a vehicle has a safety related defect as determined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA). This would be a Mandatory Recall. A Voluntary Recall is when the manufacturer recalls vehicles for a defect not necessarily related to safety. Any repairs made under a recall is paid for by the manufacturer.

A Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) is issued when a known problem or condition exists in a certain vehicle(s) and contains a repair for that problem. A TSB can also be issued to notify dealerships of diagnostic procedure changes, modified or improved parts or service manual revisions and updates.

Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) are issued by a vehicle manufacturers to alert technicians to product updates and known issues. They are not, in any way, an extension of, or addition to, the new car warranty. If the condition in a TSB happens in warranty, then the condition is repaired under the warranty. If it happens outside the warranty period, it is up to the customer to pay for the repair.

Under some circumstances there may be the possibility of a "Good Will" repair. This means that the vehicle is just out of warranty but has a known problem and either the dealer or the auto maker will warranty the repair in order to satisfy a customer.

TSB's are for informational purposes only. They are not recalls

TSBs are "Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty". This means if the vehicle is within it's warranty period, repair as outlined by the TSB is paid for by the manufacturer. If the vehicle is out of warranty, the customer is responsible for the repairs.
