2022 Mustang Mach 1 Reliability

No recalls have been issued for the 2022 Mustang range and, for the most part, it seems Ford has reached the point where all the kinks have been ironed out. The Mustang also received 85 out of a possible 100 points overall in the J.D. Power Survey - and 88 for quality and reliability - the last time it was rated in 2020. This is not just an above-average score in the sports car category but an impressive rating by any standard.

The Mach 1 is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. The safety restraint system is covered for this same period and roadside assistance is included to match. The anti-corrosion warranty is valid for five years with no mileage restrictions.
