Moving Steering Wheels Lead to Recall Of over 30K Ford Mustangs

July 8, 2024
Owners of recalled vehicles who already paid to have the problem resolved may be eligible for reimbursement.

Over 30,700 Mustangs were recalled by Ford due to a defective steering sensor that could cause drivers to lose control, reports Fox Business.

The recall impacts 2022-2023 model year Mustangs, due to an issue that stems from a miscalibrated secondary digital torque sensor in the steering gear.

Recalled vehicles are prone to their steering wheels moving involuntarily, potentially leading to a driver losing control and crashing. No known injuries or accidents related to the problem have occurred.

To resolve the issue, dealers will implement a software update. According to USA Today, owners of recalled vehicles who have already paid to have the issue fixed will be eligible for reimbursement from Ford until Aug. 22.

"Our goal is to prevent quality issues from happening in the first place," said Ford in a statement. "When they do occur, our focus is on responding quickly with a recall or service action to prevent our customers from experiencing issues with the least convenience possible. We are committed to improving our launch quality and long-term quality and are already starting to see improvements in both."
