Ford Mustang recall: About 19,000 vehicles have been recalled due to the discovery of a manufacturing defect
Ford has recalled several Mustangs manufactured between 2014 and 2017 due to a wiring defect.
Thousands of popular sports cars are being recalled across Australia due to faulty wiring.
Ford Australia has recalled nearly 19,000 Ford Mustangs built between 2014 and 2017 due to an operational fault with the rear-view camera caused by faulty wiring in the boot.
The fault was found in the boot lid wiring harness, which has the potential to cause problems with the camera as well as other features of the car.
Rear-view cameras on select Mustangs will only work intermittently, and they also suffer from loss of satellite reception.
Additional problems include the luggage compartment lamp and release failing to work.
A total of 18,840 affected vehicles are signaled in the recall, and the government has compiled a list with the VN for each Mustang affected by the problem.
Ford Australia is recalling around 19,000 Ford Mustangs made between 2014 and 2017 due to an operational fault with the rear-view camera with faulty wiring in their boot.
A faulty rear-view camera can cause death and destruction, the Department of Transportation said in a statement.
‘If the rear-view camera display does not continuously display the rear-view image while reversing the vehicle, it may increase the risk of a crash, causing serious injury or death to a person behind the vehicle,’ the statement said.
Owners of the recalled vehicles will also be contacted directly by Ford as they race to get the vehicles off the road.
The company will contact each driver personally, and request that they make an appointment at a Ford authorized dealership so that the repair can be done free of charge.
For more information, customers can contact any authorized Ford dealer or Ford’s Customer Relations Center at 13FORD (133 673).
