Ford Adds Over 360,000 Vehicles To Takata Airbag Recall

Ford is recalling even more models equipped with faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata. The latest action, which is part of the NHTSA’s planned expansion, counts a total of 364,523 vehicles, 327,796 of which are in the United States and federalized territories, and 36,727 in Canada.

The models affected are the 2009 and 2010MY Ford Mustang, Fusion, Ranger, Edge, Lincoln MKZ, MKX and Mercury Milan, and the 2013 Mustang, whose front passenger airbag inflators will be replaced by the automaker’s technicians, free of charge.

Alongside the Takata airbag recall expansion, Ford has announced a separate campaign for 363 units of the 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, in the USA and Canada, made from November 27 to December 9, 2017.

According to the Michigan-based automaker, the SUVs have “an incorrect electronic component” in the rear power-operated windows, which could prevent them from automatically reversing when they encounter an obstruction, thus increasing the risk of injury. Ford’s dealers will inspect the faulty component and replace it with a new one free of charge, if necessary.

    The Takata saga continues. I’m curious to see how this company will salvage their reputation. Also, that’s a really sweet Boss 302. If Ford decides not to continue one with the GT350 they could replace it with this.

      the names needs to be buried in history. a life-saving-device manufacturer ended up knowing making product that kills people… how the heck in the universe are they going to salvage their reputation?

      • LWOAP

        That’s what I want to know. Can it even be salvaged or will they eventually just disappear and be forever tarnished in the automotive community? Only time will tell.

    How is it that there are still vehicles being announced as having these defective airbags? Surely any vehicle ever fitted with a defective Takata airbag should have been recalled by now.

      I guess they still need time to find them all.
