California AA Accident Attorneys

A new recall has been issues by Ford over their Fiesta subcompact sedan over issues of improper side curtain airbag deployment.

The recall, announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, covers more than 150,000 Fiesta models from the 2011 to 2013 model year which were built between November of 2009 and September of 2012.

The danger comes from the vehicle’s side curtain airbags, which will not deploy if the front passenger seat is empty. These bags are designed to protect both the front and rear passengers in the event of a side impact collision, though for unclear reasons they will not deploy at all if passengers are in the back seat only.

The system itself is not experiencing any kind of malfunction; it was simply not designed to perform such a function, though it is not explained in the Fiesta owner’s manual.

To rectify the situation, Ford will reprogram the vehicle’s software to deploy the airbag when passengers are in the rear seats, even if the front passenger seat is empty.

Owners will start to receive notice of the recall at the end of the month, at which time they will be able to take their cars to the nearest Ford dealership for the free fix.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the recall is encouraged to contact Ford or the NHTSA at their Vehicle Safety Hotline, or on their website.
