Ford announced on Friday it is already recalling its 2021 Mustang Mach-E compact crossover SUV, as part of an issue affecting 1,258 cars in Canada and the United States.
The safety recall affects fewer than 75 cars already delivered, says Ford. “During checks to deliver high levels of quality and customer satisfaction, Ford discovered some vehicles may have subframe bolts that the supplier did not tighten to specification,” said the company in a statement.
Ford explains, “while the issue in affected vehicles is not to Ford’s standards, the company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.”
Roughly 94% of the 1,258 affected Mustang Mach-E cars in the U.S will be serviced before delivery to customers, says Ford. In Canada, “all 90” Mustang Mach-E units will be serviced before customer delivery. The company’s rollout of the Mach-E to customers has faced delays, as deliveries trickle out slowly.
“Dealers will inspect the subframe bolts and tighten if necessary,” said Ford in a statement. The Mustang Mach-E looks to take on Tesla’s Model Y.
Owners who have already received delivery of the Mustang Mach-E will be notified of the safety recall beginning March 22, 2021. The reference number for the recall is 21S09.
