Recall roundup: 2015 Ford Mustang for airbag problems image

Ford has recently issued a recall for the new generation of the Mustang muscle car because of a problem with the airbag.

The newest recall announced by Ford is affecting the 2015 Mustang. According to the North American based automaker, only 53 units of the new muscle car’s generation will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of the side safety belt buckle tention sensor, which may not have been calibrated properly.

“A buckle tension sensor that is not calibrated may result in misclassification of the front passenger seat occupant, which is a noncompliance issue with FMVSS 208. This issue may lead to improper passenger airbag deployment for the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury in a crash”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The affected 2015 Ford Mustang vehicles have been put together at Flat Rock Assembly Plant between the 18th of August, 2014, and the 2nd of October, 2014. Ford says that 50 of these units are found in the United States and 3 in Canada. The company is now aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem. For any question on the recall, owners should contact their local Ford representative.
