Potential Airbag Problem Leads to Ford Recall

Posted 2/20/03 10:27 a.m. CST
By Associated Press

DEARBORN, Mich. Ford Motor Co. voluntarily recalled more than 440,000 1997 Ford Escorts and Mercury Tracers on Wednesday to install a shield over the unit that monitors the airbag.

The worlds No. 2 automaker said fluid leaks or condensation could cause unintended airbag deployment, melted wiring or fire.

The problem was brought to Fords attention by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but the company said very few incidents have been reported.

About 441,000 cars are affected worldwide; most are in the United States.

Dealers and customers will be notified and the procedure will be done at Ford and Mercury dealers at no charge.

Most of the affected 1997 Ford Escorts (pictured) and Mercury Tracers are in the United States.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
