Ford Motor Company is recalling 27,531 model year 2016-2017 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles.
The driver's front airbag may not fully inflate or the airbag cushion may detach from the airbag module during a crash.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
If the airbag does not fully inflate or the cushion detaches during a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver front airbag module, free of charge. Owners will be notified 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.
