Federal Government Compulsory Takata Airbag Inflator Recall

The Federal Government has issued a compulsory recall of all vehicles fitted with frontal driver and passenger Takata airbags with non-desiccated ammonium nitrate inflators plus desiccated ammonium nitrate inflators using a calcium sulphate desiccant.

Ford has already been working with the ACCC and support and will comply with the compulsory recall now issued in Australia. We will launch our recall with a phased approach starting on Friday March 2, 2018. Customers with the oldest vehicles and those in locations of high heat and humidity will be prioritized, and all affected customers will be contacted progressively when it is time to bring their vehicles into their local dealer. 

The Ford vehicles impacted in Australia are: 

  • Econovan (2004-2005) – approx. 1300 vehicles
  • Courier (2004-2006) – approx. 21000 vehicles
  • Ranger (2006-2011) – approx. 69500 vehicles
  • Mondeo (2007-2009) – approx. 9500 vehicles
  • Mondeo (2015-2017) – approx. 6500 vehicles

No Ford vehicles sold by Ford in Australia are fitted with the Takata “Alpha” airbag inflators referred to in the Federal Government’s compulsory recall announcement.

Ford is committed to providing our customers with top quality vehicles. We are equally committed to addressing potential issues and responding quickly to our customers. If you have any questions regarding your vehicle or the compulsory recall please call 13 FORD.
