Ford to Recall F-150 Pick Up Trucks Over Air Bags

February 28, 2011  ·  By HM&M


Ford Motor Co. says it “will recall nearly 150,000 F-150 pickup trucks to fix air bags that could deploy without warning.” (K. Thomas, AP, 2/23). The recall follows concerns raised by the government about the air bag issue.

Ford calls the risk of air bags deploying “relatively low,” and said the recall affects trucks from the 2005-2006 model years. However, the vehicles being recalled currently are much less than the government suggested as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told Ford that the recall should cover over 1 million trucks from the 2004-2006 model years. So far, dozens have been injured.

As a Chicago car and truck accident lawyer, I am concerned that this recall is not expansive enough and drivers are still at risk. For those consumers whose vehicles are part of the current recall, please have the issue fixed quickly.
