American automaker Ford will recall 5,798 cars of its two luxury models in China due to faulty airbags, authorities said. The recall, starting on June 30, involves imported 2016-2017 Lincoln MKX and Lincoln Continental models, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement on its website.

Due to a problem with the airbag manufacturer, the driver- side front airbags may fail to completely fill during airbag deployment, and airbag cushions may detach from the airbag modules, increasing the risk of injury for drivers, the quality watchdog said.

Of the affected vehicles, 393 are Lincoln Continental cars manufactured between June 24 and December 5, 2016, while 5,405 were Lincoln MKX cars made between January 14 and October 26, 2016, the statement said.

Ford (China) urged owners of the vehicles to contact dealers as soon as the recall starts. The company said it would replace the defective airbags free of charge, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
