Ford recalls 2900 pick-up trucks over faulty airbags
About 3000 Ford Rangers Recalled Over Explosion Dangers In Air Bags
12 January, 2018, 16:08
Owners are asked not to drive the vehicles as the air bags are "an immediate risk to safety".
All vehicles eligible will be repaired free of charge, according to the NHTSA release. After some investigation, the company determined that the truck's inflator was made on the same day as one that exploded and killed a SC man driving a Ranger in 2016. His collision with a cow did not kill him, but metal fragments spewed by the airbag inflator did, lawyers for the family said. It's the second involving a Ranger and the 21st worldwide due to the faulty air bags. The problem brought a criminal conviction and fine against Takata and forced the Japanese company into bankruptcy protection.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urged owners to heed Ford's warning. "NHTSA's top priority is safety; it is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately". More than 180 people have been injured. "My suspicion is they found something very specific to that day that exacerbated an already bad situation", he said.
Ford issued a new recall for the 2,900 Rangers in the US and Canada. A November NHTSA report said about two-thirds of United States vehicles recalled have not yet been repaired. Of those, only 18.5 million, or 43 percent, have been replaced even though Takata recalls began in 2001.
Weigandt said Ford has sent letters and text messages, made phone calls and posted warnings on Facebook and Twitter urging owners to get their trucks repaired. "We want them to take it seriously and act". The agency also has the authority to fine automakers that don't make recall repairs in a timely manner.
Takata said in June that it has recalled, or expected to recall, about 125 million vehicles worldwide by 2019, including more than 60 million in the United States.
NHTSA has said the Takata recalls are unprecedented in size and complexity and have resulted in groundbreaking lessons that will help automakers reach their fix goals.
