Ford is expanding its Takata airbag recall once again.
The new recall is a planned expansion of previously recalled vehicles to new geographic regions. A total of 816,309 vehicles are affected by the expansion and includes: 2005-2009 and 2012 Ford Mustang, 2005-2006 Ford GT, 2006-2009 and 2012 Ford Fusion, 2007-2009 Ford Ranger, 2007-2009 Ford Edge, 2006-2009 and 2012 Lincoln Zephyr and Lincoln MKZ, 2007-2009 Lincoln MKX and 2006-2009 Mercury Milan.
The recall will address certain passenger frontal airbag inflators after Takata declared those inflators defective. The American automaker is not aware of any injuries associated with the passenger side frontal inflators involved in the recall.
Of the affected vehicles, 654,695 are in the U.S. and federalized territories while 161,147 are in Canada. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator at no cost to the customer.
