Ford Follows Honda’s Lead by Expanding Air Bag Recall in 463,000 Older Model Vehicles
Following Honda’s massive 5 million vehicle recall involving the defective Takata air bag inflators, Ford has announced it will expand the recall of older model vehicles that are equipped with driver side Takata airbags with inflators. Previously, Ford had recalled only 55,000 vehicles with the defective airbags in high humidity climate states only. Now, Ford will recall 463,000 vehicles throughout the United States and over 500,000 globally due to this defect.
The majority of the vehicles affected by the recall is the Mustang from model years 2005 to 2008. A smaller number of Ford GT vehicles from the model years 2005 and 2006 have also been recalled.

Americans rely on manufacturers to provide a safe well-designed product. Sadly, that is not often the case. The Auto Defect Attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm have successfully represented many people injured from defective autos such as Toyotas, Fords, Chryslers, Hondas, GM, and their component parts. Additionally, we have successfully represented people injured by defective helmets, bicycles, motorcycles, fuel pumps, brakes, car seats, seat belts, air bags, table saws, pumps, industrial machinery used in the workplace, barbeques, heating systems, and numerous other household and industrial products.
Often times, people involved in accidents do not examine the issues of defective product design, the risks inherent in the design, feasible alternatives, and appropriate warnings. In a car accident, we examine whether the car was truly crashworthy – does it contain the appropriate crash protection. In accidents where someone strikes a guardrail, people often do not consider the guardrail may be unsafe, installed improperly, or whether there is a contributing factor in the roadway design leading to a dangerous condition. We have represented a number of people seriously injured in these types of accidents involving dangerous conditions of roads and crashworthy vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto crash, our attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm are available to consult with you. Please contact our office at 800-481-1615 or email us.
