This is unbelievable. One of the deadliest car recalls in history keeps getting worse.
Today, nearly 2 million more cars were added to this list, and there's a good chance yours is on it. Note: Keep reading for two easy ways to find out if you're on the list, if you own a Ford or you own another brand of car or truck.
Just days after we told you that Ford recalled more than a quarter million Ford F-150 pickups, the Detroit car maker today announced that 1.898 million of its most popular cars are now on this list.
The affected vehicles have defective passenger-side Takata airbags. These popular models include 2007-2010 Edge, 2006-2011 Fusion, 2005-2011 Mustang, 2007-2011 Ranger, 2007-2010 Lincoln MKX, 2006-2011 Lincoln MKZ, and others.
This recall is really scary. At least 10 people have died because of these faulty airbags, according to Autoweek.
