Low Completion Rates on 'Do Not Drive' Warning
NHTSA Issues Second Public Plea to MY 2006 Ford Ranger and Mazda B-Series Truck OwnersMay 7, 2018
January 11, 2018 | Washington, DC
Today, Ford issued a critical warning that certain recalled model year 2006 Ford Rangers with defective Takata air bags are an immediate risk to safety. Affected owners are urged not to drive these vehicles and to contact Ford immediately to schedule a free repair. Ford announced that it will send mobile repair teams to owners’ homes, tow vehicles to a local dealership for repair, and provide loaner vehicles – all free of charge.
NHTSA is asking the media and the public to help spread the word. It’s critical that this message reaches all affected owners. NHTSA’s top priority is safety; it is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately.
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.
