Ford Recalls 2018 Mustang & Escape (airbag) 122817

Cornwall Ontario –   Ford has two recalls for December 2017 on 2018 Mustang and Escape models.

Transport Canada Recall # 2017653

Recall Date 2017/12/19
Notification Type Safety Mfr
System Airbag
Manufacturer Recall Number 17S44
Units Affected  464
Category SUV
Recall Details
On certain vehicles, the inflator diffuser installed in certain side curtain air bag modules may not have been manufactured correctly. If the vehicle were involved in a crash that warranted side curtain airbag deployment, this could potentially lead to the diffuser detaching. If the diffuser were to detach, it could become a projectile in the occupant compartment, and could cause a tear that could result in the side curtain airbag to not fully inflate. Both of these conditions could increase the risk of injury in a crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect both the right and left hand side curtain airbags to determine whether they are from the suspect population, and replace as necessary.
