INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - American automaker Ford announced a recall of 2,900 pickups following a second deadly incident involving an explosion from Takata's airbag.

The recall refers to the 2006 Ford Ranger pickup truck model sold in North America.

"We take this issue very seriously and appeal to the owners of this 2006 Ford Ranger truck to stop driving their vehicles so that dealers can fix it immediately," Ford said in a statement released by AFP on Thursday, January 11, 2018.

Ford decided to recall vehicles over two incidents involving several cars produced on the same day.

The most recent incident occurred in July 2017 which Ford later reported on December 22. Subsequent checks indicated that the vehicle air bag inflator broke and killed the driver.

The first incident occurred in January 2016, also killed one person. "Ford mourned this tragic death and expressed deep condolences to the driver's family," the company said.

Most of the vehicles that were withdrawn were sold in the United States, and another 190 were sold in Canada
