Ford is recalling about one million vehicles worldwide to replace Takata passenger air bag inflators, after metal inflators within their airbags are discovered to contain chemicals that could explode with excessive force.
America’s second largest automotive manufacturers says it has had no reports of any injuries in vehicles included in this recall.
The recall includes 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, the 2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger, the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, the 2010 and 2011 Mercury Milan, and the 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustang.
Ford will notify owners about the recall starting on Feb. 18, and the company has replacement parts available for dealers to order, said spokeswoman Monique Brentley.
Each new airbag must be ordered separately to match the make, model and interior color of each car.
Owners can go to the Ford website and key in their vehicle identification number to see if their cars and SUVs are being recalled.
In December 2018, Ford recalled over 870,000 pickup trucks sold in the US and Canada due to engine fire risks.
