Ford Philippines has issued a recall with regards to the still ongoing issues of faulty Takata airbag inflators. This recall affects over 32,900 units of older model Ford Rangers, Ford Everests, and Ford Mustangs. The recall deals with airbag inflators that could deploy with excessive internal pressure. This could in turn cause the inflator casing to rupture and send debris to the occupants of the vehicle once deployed.
The models specifically affected by this recall are the 2006 to 2014 model Ford Everest, the 2004 to 2011 Ford Ranger, and the 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustang. If your vehicle falls within these year models then Ford recommends that you visit its recall website and type in your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see if it is affected. Remember that airbags are one of your primary lines of safety in the event of a crash. These need to function properly in order to protect you from more harm and injury in the event of an accident.
In addition, customers can also call the Ford Group Philippines Customer Relations Center at telephone no. (02) 8866 9408 or 1-800-10736-3673, e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Customers can also go to their nearest Ford dealership for further assistance.
Ford also says that the affected owners can have their vehicles repaired at any Ford dealership in the Philippines with the repairs being performed absolutely free. While this is a minor inconvenience to the owners of the affected vehicles, it's always important to put safety first especially when it comes to a crucial feature such as an airbag. It's better to be safe than sorry.
