Ford recalls 1.9m cars and crossovers for defective airbags
Yet another Takata recall, this time for passenger-side airbags.
The Problem: The defective airbags have been linked to ruptures that can send metal fragments at the passenger, due to deteriorating propellant.
Injuries/Deaths: Ford claims it's not aware of any injuries due to the problem, but rupturing Takata airbags have been linked to a series of serious injuries and deaths.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the passenger-side frontal airbag at no charge to the customer.
If you own one: Look out for a letter from the manufacturer to arrange service at your local dealer. If you'd like to check if your vehicle is affected, click on the safety recalls link on Ford.com and enter your VIN.
