Another Automotive Recall – Ford Pickup Trucks
The Associated Press has reported Ford Motor Co. will recall almost 150,000 F-150 pickup trucks from 2005-2006 in the U.S. and Canada to fix the air bags. In what Ford calls a “relatively low risk”, the air bags could deploy without warning.
One would imagine the “relative low risk” factor would vary depending on if you are the driver or an innocent victim when the air bag deploys unexpectedly while driving down a busy street. Even one severe injury or death is too much when a known problem exists. This is 2011 – why we are hearing about the 2005-2006 models six years later?
This recall is much smaller than the government wanted. Citing dozens of injuries, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told the company the recall should cover 1.3 million vehicles from the 2004-2006 model years.
