Ford Motor Company is recalling 12 model year 2020 EcoSport and model year 2019-2020 Transit Connect vehicles.

The company says the driver side front airbag modules are missing the first-stage booster propellant and sleeve.

Airbag modules missing the first-stage booster propellant will not deploy as intended in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

In connection with what to do to address the defects, Ford will notify affected owners, and dealers will replace the airbag module free of charge.

The current recall was expected to begin December 28, 2020.

Owners may contact Ford Customer Service on (866) 436-7332, and Ford’s number for this recall is 20C26.
