Ford and Mazda announced today that they are expanding their ‘do not drive warning’ to include additional MY 2006 Ford Ranger and Mazda B-Series trucks with defective Takata air bags based on new testing.
These vehicles have defective Takata air bags that are an immediate risk to safety. Affected owners are urged not to drive these vehicles and to contact Ford and Mazda immediately to schedule a free repair. Ford and Mazda have replacement air bags available now and will tow vehicles to a local dealership for repair, and provide loaner vehicles – all free of charge.
NHTSA is calling on the media, safety advocates and the public to help spread this urgent safety message to ensure it reaches owners. NHTSA will continue to ensure all consumers are kept informed of current and future recalls.
To stay informed and safe, NHTSA urges all drivers to take the following five actions.
