Ford has recently issued a recall for its popular Ranger pickup truck due to a potential safety issue with the airbags. The recall affects approximately 100,000 vehicles. If you have a Ranger, you should check to see if your car falls under the recall.
The problem with the airbag is related to the inflator, which has the potential to rupture during deployment. This can lead to the airbag not inflating correctly, which can result in increased risk of injury in the event of a crash. Ford is advising all affected customers to stop driving their vehicles immediately and contact their local dealership for a free repair. The repair involves replacing the front passenger-side airbag, and Ford has said that it is working with suppliers to ensure that the necessary parts are available as soon as possible.
This recall highlights the importance of regular vehicle maintenance and safety checks. Car owners should keep up to date with recalls and take immediate action if their vehicle is affected. It is crucial for automobile manufacturers to prioritize safety and quickly address any potential safety issues.
