Ford Warns Against Driving Certain 2006 Ranger Pickups

The automaker urged in a release on Thursday for owners to stop driving the trucks immediately after becoming aware last month of a crash in West Virginia, that happened in July, involving a 2006 Ford Ranger.

There have been two fatalities in 2006 Ford Rangers caused by driver-side air bag inflator ruptures from Takata inflators built on the same day. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Ford will "send mobile fix teams to owners' homes, tow vehicles to a local dealership for fix, and provide loaner vehicles - all free of charge". It previously reported a similar death in SC that occurred in December 2015.

Ford had previously recalled some 391,000 Rangers from various model-years, but the vehicles in the new recall are all 2006 models built at the Twin Cities Assembly Plant in Minnesota from August 10, 2005 to December 15, 2005.

Most of the vehicles were sold in the United States, with 190 others sold in Canada.

The defect led Takata to file for bankruptcy protection in June, but the company still faces multiple lawsuits.

Ford, in a statement, said it is saddened by the deaths and offers its honest condolences to the drivers' families. "It is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately". More than 180 people have been injured.

Eventually, Tesla will recall every Model S between the model years of 2012 to 2016 - the original Roadster, Model X and Model 3 all remain unaffected - with future announcements and replacement schedules being decided by NHTSA. NHTSA must do more, he said, to make the recall a priority. A November NHTSA report said about two-thirds of US vehicles recalled have not yet been repaired.

The latest recalls are part of the largest series of automotive recalls in USA history, with 19 automakers having to recall up to 69 million inflators in 42 million vehicles. A subsequent inspection indicated that the airbag's inflator ruptured, killing the driver.
