DEARBORN, Mich.- An American car company is now recalling thousands of hybrids over a concern for drivers’ safety.

Ford is recalling 33,000 C-Max Hybrids, saying the vehicles may not adequately protect your head during a crash.

The recall covers cars made between January 19, 2012 and June 25, 2013 without panoramic roofs.

Ford will notify owners in the coming weeks.

Once notified, drivers can bring their cars to Ford dealers, who will install additional energy absorbing material between the car’s headliner and roof.
