This week, Ford issued a recall of 150,000 Fiestas from model years 2011 to 2013 over concerns that the side-impact air bags could fail to inflate during an accident. The fault lies with improper programming, which switches off the air bags in the back seat if the front passenger seat is empty, according to the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration.
