Defective air bags not replaced. There is a very high chance of the air bags will have metal fragments that could injure if ruptured.

Mustang

  • 124,000 miles
The 2007 Mustang pulled out from the side-street in front of an older Chevy pickup at a tee intersection in a Suburban neighborhood with very restricted sight distance, and was T-boned on the driver's side by the pickup travelling at around 35 mph. The driver's side of the Mustang was severely damaged to the extent that the left front wheel/tire/suspension assembly was ripped off the car. The point of impact was between the left front wheel and the middle of the driver's door. The Mustang is a one-owner car which was bought new and was specifically purchased with side airbags (an option on 2007 Mustangs). The vehicle has been well-maintained. The airbag tab was visible on the seat side bolster. Despite the severity of the impact, the side airbag did not deploy. We have photos documenting the positioning of the vehicles and the damage to the Mustang, including showing the side airbag tab and side of the driver's seat with the side airbag obviously not deployed. We believe that the side airbag was defective since it did not deploy. Note: The steering wheel airbag (subject to the takata recall but not yet replaced) did deploy correctly.

I was following my wife to the Jeep Dodge Cherokee dealership to get her recall taking care of. On the way there at the off ramp of 575 and riverstone parkway I made a right turn to get off on the ramp to exit and I heard a loud thud and the motor accelerated very loud and odd sounding. I was unable to control the vehicle. The only thing I could do to keep from running into anyone was slam on the brakes when I did that the breaks gave a loud screech and was very slow to stop. I ended up hitting 3 cars on the left side none of the airbags deployed nor did any of the seatbelt lock so the only thing I had to stop me from hitting my head against the steering wheel was to put my hands out in front of me on the steering wheel. When the impact happen it was so fierce that my right hand gave out and was snatched of the steering wheel and I damaged my right arm on the steering wheel column. Still kind of hurts and I still have scars.

Mustang 8-cyl

  • 8,698 miles
There has been no accident. This 2007 Mustang was registered in the state of Michigan but was kept in bonita springs, Florida continuously from 2009 through 2013. Maintenance work for the Mustang was provided by the local Ford dealer in estero, Florida during that time. The vehicle has only been driven 8,698 miles. Our concern is that only those vehicle registered in states such as Florida are being covered for this very dangerous air bag problem. We believe the recall should be expanded to at least vehicles used in the affected states.
