Ford Paying $1000 Bounty To Dealers Fix Recalled Airbags On 2006 Rangers

Ford Motor is offering its U.S. dealers $1,000 for every 2006 Ranger covered by a “do not drive” warning that they find and fix, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The affected vehicles were built with potentially defective Takata Corp. airbag inflators.

Ford in February expanded the “do not drive” warning to include 36,330 of the pickups, although the number was later revised to 33,320.

The defective inflators can explode with excessive force, unleashing metal shrapnel inside vehicles. The problem led to the largest automotive recall in history and forced Takata to file for bankruptcy protection
