Roughly 32,000 vehicles in North America are being recalled due to this dangerous new issue. The vehicles subject to the recall including the 2016-2017 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX as well as the 2017 Lincoln Continental. These are vehicles that were manufactured between Nov. 11, 2014 and Feb. 15, 2017.
Unlike the earlier problem with Takata airbags that involved explosive chemicals that caused the canister to break apart, this new issue causes the airbags to partially inflate. Specifically, if the front driver’s airbags deploy there may be misaligned components can cause under inflation. Additionally, there may be a separation between the airbag cushion and the module. Obviously, this is a safety risk to occupants of a vehicle because they would not be protected in the event of a collision.
Ford plans to replace the defective airbag module to fix the problem. Owners will be notified about the problem and asked to return their vehicle to the dealership to have the repairs/replacement done.
