Ford is recalling approximately 330,784 model-year 2015-2017 Mustang vehicles. The rearview camera wiring may be loose or damaged, which can result in a blank or distorted image, reducing the driver’s rear view and increasing the risk of a crash.
Notification letters warning owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on March 7, 2022. A second letter will be sent once the remedy is available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and repair the deck lid wiring harness and/or replace the rearview camera, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
