WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Ford is recalling 154,000 of its subcompact Fiesta vehicles tonight.
There is a problem with the side airbags. If the front passenger seat is empty, the side impact airbags won't inflate to protect passengers in the rear in some crashes.
This affects 2011 through 2013 model years.
Ford will reprogram the computer that controls the airbag in the Fiesta for free.
