Like it or not, Ford is going to need to recall nearly 3 million vehicles with Takata airbags. Back in July, Ford filed a petition to delay the recalls so they could investigate the matter further.
“NHTSA says the request for additional testing by the automakers isn’t reasonable based on the data that has been collected.”
This isn’t a no harm, no foul situation. Delaying the recall puts people’s lives at risk and it’s not a good look for Ford.
