Ford, NHTSA Still in Talks Over Larger F-150 Airbag Recall


A more significant recall of Ford F-150 trucks is probable, as talks between the automaker and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) continue.

In February Ford issued a recall of 144,000 F-150 models dating from 2005-2006 in response to a request by the government agency. That recall was not, however, satisfactory, with NHTSA requesting a total of 1.3 million trucks be fixed.

The dispute between the agency and Ford is expected to end "soon", according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

Currently NHTSA's records show 269 cases of airbags deploying without cause with 98 recorded injuries from vehicles dating from 2004-2006. That is up from 238 reports and 77 injuries when the first recall was issued in February.
