Ford Motor Company says it will recall certain model year 2015-2016 Transit vehicles manufactured March 12, 2014, to March 18, 2016. In the affected vehicles, the side curtain air bag may not deploy with the proper trajectory due to being folded and packaged incorrectly.
A side curtain air bag that does not deploy as intended may increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and re-orient the side curtain air bag assembly, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 16, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 16S13.
