Ford Recalling Vehicles for Air Bag Issues on Fusion and Lincoln MKZ Models


November 10, 2018

DETROIT, MI. – November 3, 2018 (katu.com) According to an online news report from katu.com, carmaker Ford is recalling several models of vehicles because of issues related to air bags.*

A problem with the air bags can cause them to fail during a crash. A bracket that secures the air bag inflator could deform and let the gas that inflates the air bag leak out. This would cause the air bag to not inflate in the event of a crash, which could lead to serious injuries. Ford says it is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by the air bag defects.  

Ford did not specify how many vehicles are affected in the recall or whether the recall applies to vehicles worldwide or just in the United States. The following models are included in the recall:

  • 2010 Ford Fusion
  • 2010 Lincoln MKZ
  • 2011 Lincoln MKZ
  • 2012 Lincoln MKZ

Ford will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning sometime in the near future. Owners will be able to take their vehicles to a local dealership for repair of the air bag control unit at no cost. 

To check whether your vehicle is subject to an active recall right now, you can visit the website for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. By entering your VIN in the website, you will receive information about current recalls and how to proceed to ensure your vehicle’s safety.
