NEWS: Safety Recall for Ford Mustang

Faulty Door Handle Springs Could Lead to Doors Becoming Unlatched

Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 6,000 2017 Ford Mustang vehicles to inspect the left door handle return spring. In the affected vehicles, the interior door handle may have been built with a “disoriented” return spring. It’s important to highlight that this only applies to the passenger side interior door handle only.

According to Ford, this could increase the potential for the return spring to become unseated, and inertial loads experienced by the interior door handle may cause the door to unlatch during a side impact, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Vehicles affected by this issue include certain 2017 Ford Mustang vehicles built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant from January 3, 2017 through the 31st. There are approximately 5,756 vehicles located in North America, including 5,470 in the United States, 20 in Mexico, and 266 in Canada.

The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C04.
