Ford, which had recalled 144,000 of the F-150 pickup trucks earlier this year because some front-seat airbags inadvertently deployed, is now recalling more trucks from the 2004 through 2006 model years.
It also is recalling the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT. Ford Motor Co. on Thursday expanded a recall of its popular F-150 pickup truck to about 1.2 million vehicles because front-seat airbags could inflate without the vehicle being involved in a collision.
Ford will notify owners of the affected vehicles and ask them to bring their vehicles to their local dealer for replacement of the wiring harness. This repair takes about half a day.
