Ford Motor Company is recalling 53 units of the all-new 2015 Mustang produced at its Flat Rock Assembly Plan between August 18th, 2014 and October 2nd, 2014 over a potential issue with the front seat passenger safety belt buckle.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition. Of the 53 vehicles affected by the recall, 50 are in the United States and federalized territories, and three are in Canada.
The problem: the safety belt buckle tension sensor, included in the assembly, may not have been calibrated at the supplier. A buckle tension sensor that is not calibrated may result in misclassification of the front passenger seat occupant (which is in noncompliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 208). The issue may lead to improper passenger airbag deployment for the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury in a crash.
The solution: dealers will replace the passenger safety belt buckle assembly at no cost to the customer.
