2015 Ford Mustang Recalled for Fire Risk

DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 728 2015 Ford Mustang coupes in North America to fix a fuel pressure sensor problem that may result in a fire risk, the automaker said on Thursday.

The Mustangs are equipped with 2.3-liter engines and were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant from September 25, 2014 to October 9, 2014.

"A fuel pressure sensor, which is part of the fuel supply tube assembly, may have been installed incorrectly, potentially resulting in a pressurized fuel leak," Ford said in a statement. "A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire."

Ford is not aware of any fires, accidents or injuries related to the recall.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Ford said 712 Mustangs in the U.S. are affected.

Ford dealers will replace the fuel supply tube. The recall begins the week of December 15. Owners can contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the affected Mustangs, schedule a service appointment with your dealer once you receive your official recall notice. But if you have a concern in the meantime, it's best to get in touch with your dealer now.
