Ford Motor Company "Ford" is recalling certain 2016-2017 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles. In the event of a crash, the driver's frontal air bag may not fully inflate or the air bag cushion may detach from the air bag module. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
During deployment, if the air bag does not fully inflate or the cushion detaches, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag module, free of charge. Remedy parts are not currently available. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed March 17, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts are available, currently expected to be in August 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C02.
