Ford Motor Company today announced a voluntary recall on the 2017 Mustang. The company says dealerships need to inspect the left door handle on about 6,000 units.
The company says the left-hand interior door handle may have been installed with a misoriented return spring, which could increase the potential for the return spring to become unseated. During side impact crashes, this situation could cause the door to open, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford says it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the matter.
The impacted Mustangs were built at the company’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan between January 13 and January 31, 2017. There are approximately 5,756 units impacted by the recall in North America, with the vast majority of them residing in the U.S.
Dealerships are instructed to inspect the left-hand door handle and repair it as needed to satisfy the recall.
