Ford Motor Company is issuing safety recalls for certain 2015-2016 Ford Transit vans and certain 2015-2016 F-650 and F-750 trucks.
Approximately 38,000 2015-2016 low-roof Ford Transit vehicles are being recalled by Ford so that the automaker can inspect and adjust side-curtain airbags as needed.
In some vehicles, it is possible the side-curtain airbags are positioned incorrectly on either or both sides of the vehicle, which may influence side-curtain airbag performance and increase the risk of injury in a crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.
