2015 Ford Mustang Being Recalled

Ford dealers just started taking orders on September 9th, but Ford’s new pony car is already being recalled. Fortunately, just 53 copies of the 2015 Ford Mustang were affected by the recall. But faulty seat belt sensors could actually be very dangerous.

The 2015 Ford Mustang is all-new this year, and it features a raft of improvements over the outgoing model. To start, it’s smaller and lighter, which allows it to use more efficient engines to make power. The 2015 Mustang also gets an independent rear suspension for the first time in history, and that will undoubtedly make it more attractive to a wider audience. But 53 of them have just been recalled for an improperly calibrated safety belt buckle tension sensor, located inside the passenger side seatbelt buckle assembly.

While that might not sound important, this sensor is responsible for telling the ECU how big the passenger is. In a crash, the computer uses this data to determine the right amount of force to use when deploying the airbag. Ford says that its supplier didn’t calibrate the sensors correctly, and some of them were installed in Mustangs built between August 18 - October 2, 2014. 50 of the Stang’s were sold in the U.S., and 3 were delivered to Canadian customers. No injuries have been reported.

Obviously, Ford will replace the safety belt buckle assemblies for free.

Hi! I like Ford Mustang very much. The legendary Mustang rides again. With more fuel economy that doesn't sacrifice the performance you've come to expect from this generation of automotive history.
