2016 Ford Escape (6/26/2017)
Campaign Number: 17V398000
Component Name: AIR BAGS:KNEE BOLSTER
Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company
Description: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2016 Ford Escape vehicles. The driver's knee airbag modules installed in these vehicles were produced without the inflator gas generant material, and, as a result, the air bags may not inflate properly in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Defect: In the event of a crash, if the driver's knee air bag does not inflate as intended, the driver has an increased risk of injury.
Corrective Action: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace driver's knee air bag, free of charge. The recall began on August 8, 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C11.
