Throughout checks to ship excessive ranges of high quality and buyer satisfaction, Ford found some autos might have subframe bolts that the provider didn’t tighten to specification.
Ford says that there haven’t been any accidents or accidents brought on by the difficulty and clients who’ve already acquired their Mach-E will probably be notified starting the week of March 22.
Of the 1,258 affected Mach- Es, 94 p.c are within the U.S., and all 90 in Canada could have the recall resolved earlier than buyer supply. The reference quantity for this Ford recall is 21S09.
Fortuitously for Ford, this can be a small recall, and tightening the unfastened subframe bolts is probably going a easy job for Ford service facilities. Solely lower than 75 clients should take their Mustang Mach-E to the dealership for the recall. It appears the opposite 1,100 Mach-Es could have the recall accomplished earlier than buyer supply. It’s arduous to think about that unfastened subframe bolts will trigger any accidents. The bolts ought to nonetheless be tight sufficient, simply not torqued right down to the correct spec when put in.
The Mustang Mach-E is an all-new mannequin for Ford and an EV, so count on extra recollects sooner or later. This occurs to all producers. Let’s hope Ford by no means has a battery recall that Hyundai and LG Chem are coping with proper now.
