Ford recalling 53 all-new Mustang units in North America over safety belt issue

Ford has announced the recall of more than 50 (50 in the U.S. and three in Canada) 2015 Ford Mustang vehicles.

According to Ford, “The safety belt buckle tension sensor, included in the assembly, may not have been calibrated at the supplier. 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.”

The American automaker issued the service bulletin so they can replace the passenger safety belt buckle assembly at not cost to the customer.
