Airbag recall

Taking my 04 in for the recall on the driver's side airbag at 8am tomorrow. Can't believe the PO did not take care of this in the 7 years he owned it

Got my recall notice in the mail today. Got to love it! When the govt says you must it's all Yes Sir, Yes Sir but when you are fighting for warranty look out. Had a 08 F250 Screw work truck that I took in because when you went from Park to Drive it would not go in gear. Felt like it went into neutral. When I went to the dealer they said they could not re create the problem. Wound up welding the internals in the tranny together. They put in a tranny under warranty. A week later I had the same problem with the shifter. Had to pay for that one because they could not find the problem the first time it went in.

Such is life. Just passing through.

does anyone else find it strange these recalls are just coming out now? this recall is over a year old. Curious how many issues they had with the clockspring failure causing accidental deployment of airbag before they felt it necessary to notify people.

as per my previous post back in May of '11 http://www.fordtough.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=10573

I think I got my notice around then so I do think it's weird that you're just getting yours now. However, from what I've read, I think there was only one case of the airbag deploying without reason FWIW.
