Ford Recalling 2020 Mustangs Due To Faulty Brake Pedals
Owners of 2020 Ford Mustangs have a few items to be on the lookout for. If you drive a 10-speed automatic, this recall concerns you. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted this week that these vehicles could suffer cracked brake pedal brackets which would greatly increase the risk of a crash.
This recall is only applied to 38,005 2020 model-year Mustangs without a clutch pedal. Thankfully, no reports of incidents or injuries have been submitted. Ford has cited the potential cause of the problem as “insufficient design margins” involving the materials used. It’s reported the automaker switched from using nylon to polypropylene in 2020 Mustangs with automatic transmissions.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal bracket assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 16, 2020. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 20S52.
