I was alerted to some basic safety news concerning myself and my truck today by my Rotary friends. (Yet another reason to join and attend meetings!) News: The Ford Ranger Recall from years 2004 – 2006. Almost 400,000 Ford trucks will be recalled to replace faulty airbags because they can explode with too much force. Reports place the number of deaths at 10.
It goes further than just the pickups. More than 30 million autos in the US and 10 different manufacturers. Everything you need to know about the Takata airbag recall is in the ConsumerReports report if you want to get caught up on the whole story.
Short version: Check your auto today!
My truck was recalled, parts are on order and apparently, I am in a long line. What about you? Your car…..your family…..safe? Ask your agent, they should be able to tell you if your vehicle has any recall. If they don’t, call us. We will check for you or go here. Recall Look Up by VIN
