Ford Motor Company Recalls Over 1 Million Lincoln and Ford Vehicles

By Car Accident Help on April 25, 2011

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model and model year Fords and Lincolns due to a driver side air bag defect that could increase the risk of an auto accident. The recall has been ongoing since March 2011, but an expanded population recall campaign will begin in early May 2011.

Ford is recalling 1,325,000 potentially affected model year 2004-2006 F-150 Ford pick-up trucks and model year 2006 Lincoln Mark LT vehicles due to the possibility of a driver side air bag malfunction. Faulty wiring may create a short circuit which could turn on the airbag warning lamp, and/or can cause the air bag to deploy unpredictably. This poses a danger the owners of these cars in Oklahoma. Whether or not the car is in motion, if the driver’s seat is occupied at the time, the air bag could potentially cause injury to the face, neck, and/or spinal cord. If the car is in motion at the time of an inadvertent airbag deployment, it not only risks injury to the driver, but can also potentially cause an Oklahoma traffic accident.

Ford will notify affected owners and instruct them to take their car to a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealer for a no-cost repair of the problem. For further information, owners may call the Ford Motor Company Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332 or NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236. Owners may also go to http://www.safecar.gov.

It is the duty of auto manufacturers to ensure that safe vehicles are on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in an Oklahoma auto accident due to a defective auto product, you may be entitled to legal compensation for your injuries.
