Recall Alert: 2010 Ford Transit Connect
Ford has issued a recall for more than 30,000 Transit Connect vans, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall affects models built between Dec. 5, 2008, and May 31, 2010. The pushpins that hold the van’s headliner (the vehicle’s ceiling fabric) do not meet a federal safety standard and may not provide enough head protection in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. You can find out if your car is included in the recall by checking the driver-side doorjamb, where a sticker lists the date of assembly.
Ford will notify the affected owners, and dealerships will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin around July 19. Owners can contact Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
