Ford Recalls Transit Connect for Head Protection

NHTSA compliance testing finds non-compliance.

Ford Motor Company is recalling more than 33,000 model year 2010 Transit Connect vans manufactured from December 5, 2008 through May 31, 2010 for failing to meet the minimum requirements of a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered the safety defect back in April during crash testing of the imported Turkish van. Transit Connect exceeded head injury criteria requirements set by the standard number 201, “occupant protection in interior impact.” The headliner retention pushpin located on the headliner above the b-pillar trim on both the left and right side of the vehicles needs to be replaced.
