Ford’s most recent recall centers around defective Takata air bag inflators found in certain 2010-11 Ranger pickups.
As part of the fourth planned expansion of vehicles included in Takata inflator recalls described in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Takata coordinated remedy order, Ford is expanding its safety recall on vehicles with certain passenger frontal airbag inflators after Takata declared those inflators defective.
This action represents a planned expansion of previously recalled vehicles to additional model years within the geographic zones defined earlier by NHTSA. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S01.
A total of approximately 953,000 vehicles have been added to this expansion, including 782,384 in the U.S. and federalized territories and 149,652 in Canada.
Affected vehicles include:
- 2010 Ford Edge and 2010 Lincoln MKX vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Nov. 28, 2008 to July 12, 2010
- 2010-11 Ford Ranger vehicles built at Twin Cities, Aug. 14, 2008 to June 21, 2014
