DEARBORN, Mich., March 2, 2017 – Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall in North America. Details are as follows:

Ford Motor Company issues safety compliance recall for certain 2016-17 Ford Edge, 2016-17 Lincoln MKX and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles to replace Takata driver frontal airbag module

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 32,000 2016-17 Ford Edge, 2016-17 Lincoln MKX and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles to replace the driver frontal airbag module. Ford was notified by Takata that certain driver frontal airbag cushions installed in these vehicles may not inflate as intended.

This concern is not related to Takata's non-desiccated ammonium nitrate airbag inflators that are subject to propellant degradation and potential rupture in a crash.

In the affected vehicles, in the event of driver frontal airbag deployment, the airbag may not completely fill, or the airbag cushion may detach from the airbag module due to misalignment of components within the airbag module. Incomplete airbag fill or airbag cushion detachment may result in noncompliance to F/CMVSS 208, and may increase risk of injury to the driver in the event of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Affected vehicles include:

◾2016-17 Ford Edge vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Oct. 8, 2015 to Feb. 15, 2017

◾2016-17 Lincoln MKX vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Nov. 11, 2014 to Feb. 15, 2017
