The 2015 Ford Mustang looks to be having a troubled start to life, with the car already receiving its second recall just months after landing in showrooms. A small number—53 to be exact—were recalled back in October because of an issue with seat belt buckles, and now 728 examples are being recalled because of a potential fuel line leak.
The affected vehicles are those 2015 Mustang EcoBoost models, i.e. cars equipped with the turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, built from September 25, 2014 through to October 9, 2014. The Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] is aware of 712 examples in the U.S. and 16 in Canada, as of this week.
According to the automaker, the fuel pressure sensor on the affected vehicles may have been installed incorrectly. This could result in a pressurized fuel leak, which in turn could cause a fire.
So far there haven’t been any reported cases of a fire or any accident or injury related to this particular issue.
Ford is in the process of contacting owners of the affected vehicles, who will be able to have a dealer rectify the issue free of charge. Anyone concerned can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
