Recalled: 2000 Ford Mustang GT

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today released a list of auto safety recalls announced in November and December 2000 and urged consumers to have the problems fixed promptlyFord Motor Company

Models: Ford Mustang GT Year: 2000

Number Involved: 11,400

Dates of Manufacture: April - June 2000

Noncompliance: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 4.6-liter engines, a coolant flow blockage exists at the intake manifold heater core nipple, resulting in no coolant flow to the heater and, therefore, no warm air flow from the heater or windshield defroster. Vehicles with this condition do not comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 103, "Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems." Loss of visibility could occur, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Customers will be asked to verify, following instructions provided, that heated air flows from their vehicle's heater/defroster outlets. The customers will be advised to contact their dealers to make arrangements for repair of their vehicles if no heated air flow exists at these outlets. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 20, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
