Got the recall notice, but it says no parts until 2023.
It's not even that they won't deploy. The airbags (just) failed to meet the standards for a test in which they are struck with a simulated head shape at various points and deflection past the plane of the window is measured.Got mine this week. Side curtain airbag. Risk of ejection if the airbag doesn't deploy.
NHTSA’s Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance contacted Ford on June 29, 2022, regarding the results of their FMVSS 226 compliance audit on the 2022 model year Maverick. The displacement results for the front lower primary target was 111.9 mm which exceeds the federal regulation of 100 mm.
Not the entire truth. The airbags are designed to work in conjunction with seatbelts, not to replace them.Got mine this week. Side curtain airbag. Risk of ejection if the airbag doesn't deploy. BFD. I wear my seat belt so I won't be ejected in any case! Pisses me off that cars are engineered to protect people who refuse to use available measures to protect themselves!
This is coming from a guy who has rolled two cars on to their roofs and walked away without a scratch...because 3-point seatbelts.
