Ford Expands Recall Of F-150 Pickups

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Ford is expanding a recall of its popular F-150 pickup truck.

Following government pressure, Ford expanded the recall from 150,000 to 1.2 million F-150’s.  Government investigators had claimed that there’s a risk of airbags deploying unexpectedly, which could injure drivers, or even cause an accident. 

The recall covering F-150’s from the 2004 through 2006 model years.

Ford had, for awhile, resisted expanding the recall. 

WWJ AutoBeat Reporter Jeff Gilbert said F-150 owners will get a recall notice in the mail with instructions.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
