Recall Alert: 2015 Ford Mustang

RECALL Subject : Fuel Tank or Vapor Lines may Degrade from Heat

Report Receipt Date: JUN 02, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V339000
Component(s): FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 19,095


Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company

SUMMARY:

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Ford Mustang vehicles manufactured February 14, 2014, to February 10, 2015, and equipped with 2.3L engines. Prolonged exposure to elevated underbody temperatures can cause degradation of the fuel tank and/or fuel vapor lines, which may eventually result in a fuel leak. In addition, this condition could cause seals in the parking brake cable to degrade, potentially affecting parking brake function.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the vehicle experiences a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source it can, increase the risk of a vehicle fire. Reduced parking brake function could potentially result in unexpected vehicle movement, which may increase the risk of injury.
REMEDY:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank shield, add thermal patches to the fuel tank and parking brake cable, and add thermal wraps to the fuel vapor lines. The repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 6, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S19.
