The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting the Ford Motor Co is recalling 31,867 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because their driver’s side air bags may not inflate properly.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a malfunctioning airbag, do not hesitate to contact a New Jersey personal injury attorney immediately. You may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages.
The recall affects the 2016-2017 Ford Edge, the 2016-2017 Lincoln MKX and the 2017 Lincoln Continental. Most are in the U.S. but 4,336 are in Canada.
The air bags were made by Japanese supplier Takata Corp., but they don’t have the same deadly problem that has led to a recall of millions of Takata air bags.
In that case, air bags can inflate with too much force and spew shrapnel at occupants.
In Ford’s case, the air bags may not fill completely because of misaligned components.
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the defect. Takata notified Ford after it discovered some production problems.
Ford will begin notifying customers the week of March 13. Dealers will replace affected air bags for free once parts are available.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a Ford vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about filing a personal injury claim seeking a monetary reward for your damages, contact the trusted product liability lawyers at Breslin and Breslin online or call 201-342-4014.
