Ford Motor Co (NYS:F) said it was recalling 33,021 C-Max hybrid cars because a roof component did not meet requirements for protecting against head injuries.

The vehicles were built between January 19, 2012, and June 26, 2013, in Michigan. Only vehicles without the optional panoramic glass roof are included in the recall.

Ford said it would install plastic energy-absorbing material under the roof on both sides of the vehicle to correct the problem.

No accidents or injuries have been attributed to the issue, the company said. Tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the company uncovered the roof safety issue.

These things happen.
I would be more concerned with all of the Michelin tires that have been recalled.

Nothing to do with the vehicle being a hybrid or not. Just a matter of bad design and testing.

That is not a good fix, better wear a helmet when in the vehicle.

They moved to correct the issue before there was an injury. Good for Ford.
