Ford Motor Company announced another recall for its Ford F-150 pick-up trucks. This recall being issued just weeks after the company announced a recall for approximately 365,000 2009 and 2010 F-150 trucks that were produced between January 2008 and November 2009 for door handle problems.
This time, Ford is recalling approximately 135,000 F-150 trucks because front air bags may deploy unexpectedly and when not needed. The recall affects the 2005 and 2006 model-year Ford F-150 trucks.
Ford said that an air bag wire located in the steering wheel could have been improperly positioned, which in turn could create the possibility of a short circuit that would light up the airbag warning light and/or cause the inadvertent deployment of the airbags.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said its investigation into 1.3 million F-150s revealed a substantial number of incidents involving inadvertent air-bag deployments.
If you are driving a 2005 or 2006 Ford F-150, and have not yet experienced any problems with your airbags, take your vehicle to an authorized Ford or Lincoln dealership who will assess your vehicle and make any necessary repairs.
However, if you have already experienced any problems with your F-150 and you have taken your car into a dealership for at least one repair, you may have a lemon and you may be entitled to your money back or a new vehicle.
