Ford Motor Company of Australia Limited — Ford Ranger and Everest

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See list attached

What are the defects?

The airbag initiators within the side airbag modules of certain Ranger and Everest vehicles may contain an incorrect chemical mixture.

What are the hazards?

This incorrect chemical mixture could cause the airbag inflator not to initiate, resulting in the side airbag not deploying in the event of a crash and increasing the risk of injury to occupants. As of date of publication, there have been no reported cases in Australia.

What should consumers do?

Ford will write to owners of all affected vehicles. Owners are advised to contact their Ford authorised Dealership for inspection and rectification free of charge.

Until the Safety Recall Service is completed it is recommended that vehicles are driven with caution and at moderate speed. For further information, contact any authorised Ford Dealer or Ford's Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672.
