Ford Recall on 2015 Mustang and other models
Two major recalls from Ford Motors affecting a total of 442,300 across multiple models.
The larger of the two is affecting an electric power steering system fail in the 2011-2013 Ford Flex, Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and MKT; the 2011-2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ; and the2011 Mercury Milan. This recall affects 422,814 vehicles in North America, including 393,622 in the United States, 25,195 inCanada, and 3,997 in Mexico.
According to Ford the power steering can cut out. This issue has already caused four minor accidents but no casualties or injuries. Depending on trouble codes from the vehicle, dealers will either upgrade software for the power steering control module or replace the steering gear.
The second recall covers 19,486 examples of the 2015 Ford Mustang with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a production date between February 14, 2014, and February 10, 2015 at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant. Specifically, there are 19,095 of these in the US and 391 in Canada.
The Mustangs are having issues with elevated body temperatures which can ultimately lead to the deterioration of the fuel tank, fuel vapor lines, and parking brake cable seals. The dealerships are fixing this issue by installing upgraded fuel tank shields, thermal patches and parking break cable, as well as installing thermal wraps around the fuel vapor lines.
