Ford Has Recalled 1994-1997 Mustang and the 1995-1997 Lincoln Town Car

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the Ford Motor Company 1994-1997 Mustang and the 1995-1997 Lincoln Town Car.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 911

Defect: On certain of these passenger vehicles which had their driver's air bag modules replaced after April 5, 2000, the replacement driver's air bag inflators might have insufficient welds that could prevent proper inflation of the air bag. In the event of a crash, the driver's air bag may not properly deploy. This could result in less than the intended level of occupant protection.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver's air bag module. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 5, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V318/Ford Recall No. 01S28].
