Baku, April 5, AZERTAC
Ford (China) will recall 5,798 cars in the Chinese mainland due to problems with airbags, China's top quality watchdog said, according to Xinhua.
The recall, starting on June 30, involves imported 2016-2017 Lincoln MKX and Lincoln Continental models, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine in a statement on its website.
Due to a problem with the airbag manufacturer, the driver-side front airbags may fail to completely fill during airbag deployment, and airbag cushions may detach from the airbag modules, increasing the risk of injury for drivers, it said.
Of the affected vehicles, 393 are Lincoln Continental cars manufactured between June 24 and Dec 5, 2016, while 5,405 were Lincoln MKX cars made between Jan 14 and Oct 26, 2016, according to the statement.
Ford urged owners of the vehicles to contact dealers as soon as the recall starts. The company said it would replace the defective airbags free of charge.
