This week’s question comes from Randolf G. in the Sunset who asks “I heard that there has been a recall of cars with certain airbags because they are exploding and causing injury to people with sharp metal flying out with the airbag. I own a 2005 Ford Ranger. Am I in danger?”
Randolf, you may indeed be in danger and you should take your car to a dealer to have the air bag checked to see if it is in the lot or batch of defective airbags. Ford is recalling nearly 391,000 of its Ranger pickup trucks because the driver’s side airbag inflators can explode with too much force causing injury or death.
