Recalls: 2015 Ford Mustang already recalled, plus Transit Connect
The 2015 Ford Mustang is already off to a rough start as Dearborn just issued a recall for 2015 models for leaky fuel lines.
Around 738 examples are being recalled with the 2.3L EcoBoost motor, 712 in the US and the remainder 26 in Canada. The problem is sourced to an improperly installed fuel pressure sensor, which could give way prematurely and cause a fuel leak. That of course raises the risk for fires. The part will be replaced free of charge.
In addition to the Mustang, Ford also issued a statement for 2014 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Vans. Around 19,825 units are being recalled over a problem with the adhesive being used for the plastic on the sliding doors. Dealers will also repair that free of charge.
