There are plenty of reasons to avoid ignoring recall campaigns. Learning your car’s air bags may explode is one of them. Ford recalled nearly one million cars globally, with 782,384 of them being in the United States. The campaign involves air bags produced by Takata. The inflators in these devices could explode. That’s due prolonged exposure to heat and humidity, which may cause the ammonium nitrate to deteriorate over time. In this case, the explosion may occur with too much force, and the inflators will explode. With metal shrapnel flying into the car’s cabin, occupants could be in grave danger.
This same issue already killed 23 people worldwide.
Vehicle owners who own one of the cars listed under the recall should go to a dealership as soon as possible and Ford will replace the defective air bags. Because of how serious this issue is and how deadly the potential consequence can be, Ford is urging drivers to act promptly.
Cars that come with the defective air bags include the 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, the 2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger and Mercury Milan, the 2010 and 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, and the 2010 and 2014 Ford Mustang.
