Ford recalls more than 953,000 vehicles to replace inflators

Hundreds of millions of Takata airbags are believed to share the same defect, and around 37 million vehicles equipped with them - made by a number of automakers including Honda, Acura, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler - have already been recalled worldwide.

Ford is recalling over 953,000 additional vehicles with defective airbags that can possibly explode and shoot shrapnel toward drivers and passengers.

The recall includes 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, the 2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger, the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, the 2010 and 2011 Mercury Milan, and the 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustang.

The Takata recall is one of the largest in US history.

The NHTSA called the Takata air bag recalls "the largest and most complex vehicle recalls in US history".

Takata uses the chemical ammonium nitrate to create an explosion to inflate air bags.

Ford is urging owners to get their vehicles to dealers as soon as possible for replacement at no cost.

Takata recalls are being phased in through 2020. This is the fourth planned expansion of vehicles included in the Takata inflator recalls, described in the National Highway Traffic Administration's Takata coordinated remedy order.

According to the NHTSA, there are 50 million defective Takata airbags in 37 million US vehicles.
