Ford Recalls Certain 2020 Mustangs Due to Brake Issue

Ford has issued a recall for over 38,000 Mustang vehicles over concerns that the brake pedal bracket system may fracture during a hard stop. Under hard braking, a faulty system may deliver insufficient stopping power and potentially increase the risk of an accident. At the time the recall was announced, the company stated that it was unaware of any injuries related to the issue.

The Problem

The reason for the bracket fractures has been traced to a weak material choice. For a specific period of time, the manufacturer utilized polypropylene, rather than nylon, to fabricate the bracket in question. The American multinational automaker has identified 38,005 Mustangs from the 2020 model year which are impacted by this problem. All impacted vehicles have an automatic transmission.

The Solution

The Ford Motor Company has notified dealerships and will be reaching out to vehicle owners in November. Owners of affected vehicles will be asked to bring their Mustang to their local Ford or Lincoln dealership to have the affected parts replaced for free.

You can verify whether or not your vehicle is impacted by this recall by visiting NHTSA website and entering your 17-digit VIN number.
