Ford Recalls 434,000 Mustang

Recall From: Ford Motor Company

Models: Ford Mustang Years: 1994-2001

Number Involved: 434,000

Dates of Manufacture: October 1993 - October 2000

Defect: On certain Mustang cars equipped with manual transmissions, if the vehicle is parked with the parking brake not fully applied and not in first gear, the vehicle could roll on some grades. This could result in unintended vehicle movement and a vehicle crash.

Remedy: Dealers will modify the parking brake control and install a plate, or over-bracket, to the control to lock the self adjust mechanism in position following adjustment. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on Nov. 27, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
