AN 4, 2019 | DEARBORN, MICH.

DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 4, 2019 ā€“ Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall and is expanding a safety recall for certain Takata airbag inflators in North America. Details are as follows:

Safety compliance recall on select 2019 EcoSport vehicles for insufficient front seat back weld

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall on certain 2019 Ford EcoSport vehicles with an insufficient weld between the side member and A-bracket on the front seat back. A seat back with an inadequate weld may have reduced strength that may not meet the seat back strength requirements of FMVSS 207/210, potentially increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries resulting from this condition.

This action affects approximately 87 EcoSport vehicles in North America including 63 in the United States and federalized territories and 13 in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 18C08.

Dealers will replace front seats on affected vehicles with new seats.

Safety recall expansion for vehicles containing certain Takata airbag inflators

As part of the fourth planned expansion of vehicles included in Takata inflator recalls described in National Highway Traffic Safety Administrationā€™s Takata coordinated remedy order, Ford is expanding its safety recall on vehicles with certain passenger frontal airbag inflators after Takata declared those inflators defective. This action represents a planned expansion of previously recalled vehicles to additional model years within the geographic zones defined earlier by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S01.

A total of approximately 953,000 vehicles have been added to this expansion, including 782,384 in the United States and federalized territories and 149,652 in Canada.

Affected vehicles include:
2010 Ford Edge and 2010 Lincoln MKX vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Nov. 28, 2008 to July 12, 2010
2010-11 Ford Ranger vehicles built at Twin Cities, Aug. 14, 2008 to June 21, 2014
2010-12 Ford Fusion, 2010-12 Lincoln MKZ and 2010-11 Mercury Milan vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, July 3, 2008 to July 29, 2012
2010-14 Ford Mustang vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, June 8, 2009 to Dec. 16, 2011
Ford is not aware of any injuries associated with the passenger side frontal inflators included in this safety recall.

Dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator or module at no cost to the customer.
