2016 Ford Mustang Recalled for Defective Occupant-Restraint Parts


DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 1,906 2016 Ford Mustang coupes in North America because occupant-restraint parts may have been damaged during shipping, the automaker said on Wednesday.

The damaged parts may not adhere to federal child-restraint anchor system standards.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built at Ford's Flat Rock Assembly Plant from September 26, 2015 through October 1, 2015. Ford said 1,900 of the affected vehicles are in the U.S., with the rest in Canada and Mexico.

Ford dealers will replace the front-and-rear seatbelt assemblies, rear seat-buckle assemblies and child tethers. The recall will begin the week of December 14, Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker told Edmunds.

Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.

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

Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for several weeks. Owners with an immediate concern should contact their dealer now.
