Vehicles Affected: Approximately 19,500 model-year 2015 Ford Mustang vehicles equipped with a 2.3-liter engine; only vehicles built between Feb. 14, 2014, and Feb. 10, 2015, at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant are affected.
The Problem: Ford is reporting that prolonged exposure to elevated underbody temperatures might cause the fuel tank and fuel vapor lines to degrade. This could result in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire. This condition could also cause the parking brake cable seals to degrade, potentially affecting parking brake functions. This increases the risk of an accident. Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires resulting from this condition.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the current fuel tank shield with a shield with better insulating capability, install thermal patches on the fuel tank and parking brake cable, and install thermal wraps on the fuel vapor lines for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford has not yet released an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more information.
