    Summary

    Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2016 Ford Escape vehicles. The driver's knee airbag modules installed in these vehicles were produced without the inflator gas generant material, and, as a result, the air bags may not inflate properly in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

    Consequence

    In the event of a crash, if the driver's knee air bag does not inflate as intended, the driver has an increased risk of injury.

    What Owners Should Do

    Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace driver's knee air bag, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 18, 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C11.
