RECALL: Certain 2016 Ford trucks have been recalled due to airbag issue

Ford has recalled more than 300,000 heavy-duty trucks due to airbag issues.

According to the recall,  certain 2016 F-250, 350, 450, and 550 trucks are impacted by the recall which states dust can get into the airbag wiring in the steering wheel, disconnecting the electricity.

The company said owners will be notified by mail starting July 5 and can contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.

Dealers will replace steering wheel wiring free of charge.

Additionally, more than 460 electric Mustang Mach-E SUVs from 2021 are being recalled due to a software issue.

Ford said the powertrain control computer may not detect a software error, “resulting in unintended acceleration, unintended deceleration, or a loss of drive power” in all-wheel drive vehicles.

The issue will be fixed by dealers or by an online software update. Owners will be notified by letter around May 30.
