Ford Urges 2900 Pickup Owners To Stop Driving After New Takata Death
12 January, 2018, 09:17
Ford and federal regulators are telling 2,900 owners of certain 2006 Ford Rangers to stop driving them and dispatching dealers to replace the trucks' Takata air bag inflators after the company confirmed that a defective inflator ruptured and killed a customer last July in West Virginia.
There have been two fatalities in 2006 Ford Rangers caused by driver-side air bag inflator ruptures from Takata inflators built on the same day.
Ford said it would pay to have vehicles towed to dealerships or send mobile fix teams to owners' homes and provide free loaners if needed. All of the other deaths have occurred in Hondas.
"Ford announced that it will send mobile fix teams to owners' homes, tow vehicles to a local dealership for fix, and provide loaner vehicles - all free of charge".
Dealers will fix the trucks at owners' homes or tow them to dealerships for the work, spokeswoman Elizabeth Weigandt said.
Takata air bags have now been linked to 21 deaths around the world.
Auto manufacturer Ford on Thursday recalled 2,900 vehicles following a second fatal accident involving the explosion of a faulty Takata airbag.
Ford issued a new recall for the 2,900 Rangers in the US and Canada. "NHTSA's top priority is safety; it is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately".
You can find a full list of recalled vehicles on Consumer Reports' website. The inflators can rupture and send deadly metal fragments into the vehicle.
Eventually, Tesla will recall every Model S between the model years of 2012 to 2016 - the original Roadster, Model X and Model 3 all remain unaffected - with future announcements and replacement schedules being decided by NHTSA.
In June 2016, NHTSA warned airbag inflators on more than 300,000 unrepaired recalled 2001-2003 model year Honda vehicles showed a substantial risk of rupturing, and urged owners to stop driving them until getting them fixed.
