The Detroit Free Press recently published a report saying that Ford is reinspecting and investigating more than 250,000 vehicles after it allegedly “discovered sloppy work and false billing by dealership technicians during the required replacement of dangerous Takata air bags”.

Consequently, every car equipped with these airbags has been subjected to a recall.
