Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2022 Bronco and Ranger vehicles. In this Ford recall, the windshield may not have been properly bonded to the vehicle, which could allow it to detach during a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 212, “Windshield Mounting.”
A windshield that separates from a vehicle during a crash can increase the risk of injury.
Dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 11, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 22C12.
The Bronco, which is based on the Ranger platform, was all-new for the 2021 model year and has been going through some new-vehicle growing pains, including production delays, troubles with the hard-top roof and a recent investigation into the 2.7-liter engine. Thus far the 2021-2022 Ford Bronco has five recalls. For all Ford recall information, be sure to visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website, click on “Recalls” in the top navigation and then search for your specific VIN or the specific model year plus “Ford Bronco” or “Ford Ranger.”
