Ford is recalling approximately 38,000 of the 2020 Mustangs to replace a defective brake pedal bracket. The only Mustangs being recalled have the 10-speed automatic transmissions.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that the brake pedal bracket can break without warning when the driver slams on the brakes, which would increase the risk of an accident and make it very difficult to stop. Ford stated that the faulty bracket is from Canada’s KSR International. KSR International decided to replace nylon with polypropylene in the manufacturing process. The cars being recalled were built between March 4, 2019 through August 13, 2020.
Ford is sending a recall notice in the mail to the owners of the affected Mustangs. They will need to take their Mustangs to the nearest Ford dealership to have the brake pedal bracket replaced for free. Ford dealerships have been alerted about the recall but many owners may not receive the recall notice until November 16, 2020.
