Ford may have used obsolete Takata replacement parts during a previous recall, extending what already feels like a never-ending airbag saga. Some Ford dealerships kept defective parts on their shelves long after they should have been tossed, and those wound up being used in vehicles as part of a collision of theft repair. Now Ford needs to re-recall 154,000 vehicles to inspect part numbers and replace the inflators if neccessary.
