Ford recalls 150,000 vehicles due to risk of faulty airbags

Ford Takata recall

Two recalls announced on Thursday by Ford Motor Company affect some 154,000 vehicles due to potentially faulty air bag systems that could pose a risk of serious injury or death.

According to a statement released on Ford’s website one of the recalls covers about 153,000 Ford Ranger pickups made between 2004 to 2011. This recall stems from the company’s inability to locate 45 faulty air bag systems that might have been installed by accident in these pickup trucks. The report does not make clear what dangers are posed to consumers due to the issue.

Meanwhile, a second recall involves roughly 1,000 vehicles due to problems presented by Takata air bag inflation systems. These airbags pose a risk of “serious injury or death,” if the device malfunctions as it inflates. This second recall affects vehicles across a range of product lines, including the Ranger, Mustang, Fusion, Edge and other vehicles.

The Takata air bag recall comes on the heels of one announced by Ford for 10 million vehicles in 2020. The Ford recalls are part of the largest recalls in modern history. Roughly 70 million vehicles equipped with Takata airbags were recalled after the company’s products were linked to hundreds of injuries and about two dozen deaths.
