Just when we thought the Blue Oval was getting it right.
After receiving rave reviews and with enthusiastic buyers awaiting deliveries of their all-new 2015 Mustang, Ford has just issued a small, but nevertheless, ultra-embarrassing, recall order for the new pony car. The recall affects 53 cars in North America, hardly a GM-sized blunder but still an awkward start for the brand new model. According to the automaker, the passenger safety belt's buckle tension sensor has been improperly calibrated, a mishap that could lead to improper deployment of the airbag.
In a statement released by the company, Ford said that it wasn't aware of any accidents or injuries caused by this flaw. The affected cars, built at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan, will be repaired by dealers free of charge.
