Ford had already issued a few recalls to fix the faulty Takata airbags in their Ford Ranger models and now Ford is warning an additional 33,000 units that they should stop driving their Ford Ranger out until repairs are made.
The recall started back in January when it was confirmed that a second death was linked to the Takata Airbags. The inflators were made on the same day as the one that caused the first death. That has prompted Ford to warn 2900 of their Ford Ranger owners.
Besides Ford, Mazda is also expanding their warning and recalls for the Mazda B-Series trucks which were built by Ford. Owners of these trucks are urged to schedule a free repair with their dealer as soon as they can.
Ford and Mazda have offered to tow the vehicles to the dealership for repairs. The repairs will also be done for free.
