AIR BAGS

Recall number: 12V488000
Recall date: 10/05/2012

Problem Summary:

FORD IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011-2013 FIESTA VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 3, 2009 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 21, 2012. THE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD (FMVSS) NO. 208, "OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION." THE PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG WILL NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A SIDE IMPACT COLLISION WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY. ALTHOUGH THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO SUPPRESS THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG UNDER THIS SCENARIO, THAT INFORMATION IS NOT EXPLAINED IN THE OWNER'S GUIDE FOR THESE VEHICLES AS REQUIRED BY FMVSS NO.208.

Consequence:

AN OCCUPANT IN THE RIGHT REAR SEATING POSITION WILL NOT HAVE COVERAGE FROM THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG IN A SIDE IMPACT COLLISION WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE RIGHT REAR OCCUPANT.

Corrective Action:

FORD WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE VEHICLE'S SOFTWARE FREE OF CHARGE SO THAT IT NO LONGER SUPPRESSES THE PASSENGER SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAG WHEN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT IS EMPTY, AND CONSISTENT WITH THE DESCRIPTION IN THE OWNER'S GUIDE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN SHORTLY. OWNER'S MAY CONTACT FORD AT 1-866-436-7332.

This recall affects vehicles manufactured between 11/03/2009 and 09/21/2012.
