The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is deeply concerned that certain higher-risk 2006 Ford Rangers and Mazda B-Series trucks with defective Takata airbags are not being repaired fast enough.

These vehicles are under a “do not drive” warning and the airbags must be replaced immediately.

NHTSA is issuing a second public plea to owners to schedule a free repair today for their own safety and the protection of their loved ones.

According to the manufacturers, 44 percent of the 33,320 impacted 2006 Ford Rangers have been mitigated and 55 percent of the 2,205 impacted Mazda B-Series trucks have been mitigated.

Both Ford and Mazda have authorized their dealers to tow these vehicles for free, so consumers can safely obtain the free repair.
