Ford has announced a recall of approximately 38,000 model-year 2020 Mustang coupes equipped with automatic transmissions due to issues with the brake pedal brackets. The recalled vehicles received polypropylene brackets instead of the nylon brackets other vehicles got. The brake pedal bracket may fracture during sudden stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will begin notifying owners on Nov. 16. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To remedy the issue, dealers will replace the brake pedal bracket assembly.

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.
