It is vital that you determine if your vehicle is affected and, if so, have it repaired FREE by a Ford Dealer. In some cases, only the driver’s or passenger’s side may be affected. In other cases, both the driver’s side and passenger’s side need to be repaired. Regardless, this situation requires immediate attention and is not to be taken lightly.

Additional Zone A Locations Not Shown: Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands

NHTSA has organized the U.S. and its territories into three zones. We are getting replacement parts as quickly as we can, with oldest vehicles in Zone A being highest priority and Zone B and Zone C following. Priority has been decided based on states with persistent high humidity and high temperatures, as certain Takata airbag components may degrade over time under such conditions. Please note, those in lower humidity states still need to take immediate action.
