Ford India will recall 42,300 cars likely affected by a software error which resulted in airbags not being deployed during certain collisions as intended.

Ford India will recall the Figo hatchback and Figo Aspire compact sedan built at its new plant in Sanand in the western state of Gujarat, the automaker said in a statement on Friday.

The company did not clarify if the software error affects only domestic sales or exports from the plant as well.

“A corrective action on all Figo and Figo Aspire vehicles, presently at Ford dealerships, has been undertaken, leading to a resumption of deliveries to customers,” Ford India said, adding that the recalled cars would also get a software upgrade.
