Vehicles Affected: Approximately 200 model-year 2007-12 Ford Flex SUVs, Taurus sedans, Lincoln MKS sedans and Mercury Sable sedans manufactured between Dec. 13, 2007, and Oct. 6, 2011, at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant and Oakville Assembly Plant in Ontario

The Problem: The chemical enhancer for the second-stage airbag deployment could be missing from the module, increasing the risk of an injury in a crash that requires second-stage airbag deployment. Ford noted that this condition does not affect primary-stage airbag deployment, nor is it related to the massive ongoing recall of airbags manufactured by Japan’s Takata Corp. The automaker also stated that it is unaware of any reported accidents, injuries or fires related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the driver-side airbag module for free.

What Owners Should Do: The automaker did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more info.
