Among the 71 recalls the NHTSA has announced this December comes news of the following:

Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 10,157 model year 2018 Ford Escape vehicles. The side curtain air bags on these vehicles have a component that may detach during deployment of the inflatable curtain air bag.
