Ford recalls 33K+ C-Max Hybrids over crash safety concerns
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Ford Motor Company recalled more than 33,000 cars, over fears they might not protect occupants' heads in a crash.
The recall involves 33,021 C-Max Hybrids manufactured between Jan. 19, 2012 and June 25, 2013. The recall only involves models without the panoramic glass roofs.
There aren't any reported injuries, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found the car did not conform to safety standards during tests.
Ford will notify owners next month and fix the problem for free. Owners can also contact the NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov.
