Ford Recalls Takata Airbags

Ford Motor Co. today said it is recalling 1.9 million vehicles from the 2005 through 2011 model years for defective passenger-side airbag inflators made by Takata Corp.
The recall, prompted by Takata’s declaration last month of defects in 14 million more vehicles, more than triples the number of Ford vehicles ensnared in the debacle. This is Ford’s first recall for passenger-side inflators.
Ford said it is not aware of any injuries linked to the defect. The recall covers the following vehicles: 2007-10 Edge and Lincoln MKX; 2006-11 Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ and Zephyr; 2005-11 Mustang; and 2007-11 Ranger.
