2008 Ford Mustang Recalls

NHTSA Campaign ID #

14V802000

Recall Date

2014-12-19

Summary

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2005-2008 Ford Mustang vehicles manufactured August 1, 2004, to June 30, 2007, and 2005-2006 Ford GT vehicles manufactured February 11, 2005, to January 30, 2006. Upon deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequences

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

Remedy

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver side frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Ford began notifying owners January 30, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 14B09. NOTE: This recall supersedes, in part, safety recall 14V-343 as to the front driver air bag inflators in 2005-2008 Ford Mustang and 2005-2006 Ford GT vehicles only. The driver's air bag inflators in 2004-2005 Ford Rangers originally sold, or ever registered in, certain hot and humid locations will continue to be addressed by that recall.

Summary

VAN-CON HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA OF A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 HANDICAP SCHOOL BUSES BUILT ON FORD AND CHEVY CHASSIS, FITTED WITH RICON PUBLIC USE LIFTS. THE RESTRAINT BELT ON THESE LIFTS WAS DESIGNED TO PREVENT THE LIFT FROM MOVING, UNLESS THE TONGUE OF THE BELT IS FULLY ENGAGED AND LATCHED IN THE BUCKLE. RICON HAS DISCOVERED, HOWEVER, THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE OPERATOR TO INSERT THE BELT TONGUE INTO THE BUCKLE WITHOUT FULLY ENGAGING THE LATCHING MECHANISM. IN THIS CASE, THE RESTRAINT BELT WOULD APPEAR TO BE LATCHED, AND THE OPERATOR COULD RUN THE LIFT. IF THE RESTRAINT BELT TONGUE IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED INTO THE RESTRAINT BELT BUCKLE, AND LATCHED, THE LIFT MAY OPERATE WITH AN OCCUPANT ON THE PLATFORM.

Consequences

THE USER OF THE LIFT COULD BE INJURED SHOULD THE LIFT MOVE WITHOUT THE RESTRAINT BELT PROPERLY BUCKLED.

Remedy

VAN-CON IS WORKING WITH RICON AND RICON WILL BE HANDLING THE REMEDY FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. PLEASE SEE RICON'S DEFECT REPORT 09E-060. RICON WILL PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WITH A WARNING DECAL AND A DVD-BASED TRAINING AID. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON APRIL 5, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT RICON CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-800-322-2884 OR BY EMAIL AT WWW.DMATA@WABTEC.COM.
