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.

Gulf States Toyota is recalling approximately 1,500 cars beginning in April, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website SafeCar.gov. This recall is due to defective tires; specifically, faulty tire pressure monitoring and regulating systems in the 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2009-2011 Toyota Tundra.
The affected Toyota models fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, which refers to “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems” (TPMS). The TPMS of the aforementioned models may not have been properly calibrated, resulting in the malfunction or altogether absent function of the low tire pressure warning light when the pressure of one or more tires has gone lower than the required limit. This increases the risk of driving with low pressure tires, which can subsequently result in tire failure, increasing the risk of an Oklahoma car accident. Read the rest »
