A voluntary recall has been issued for a small number of 2015 Ford Mustang models equipped with the EcoBoost engine – built between September and October 2014 – due to a possible fuel leak issue. 728 Mustang EcoBoost models are being recalled for inspection.
The problem is with the fuel pressure sensor which is apparently installed incorrectly and may leak under pressure. There hasn’t been a single report of fire or injury involving the Mustang EcoBoost, but needless to say, this is a serious issue and Ford wants to deal with it before it blows way out of proportion and pulls a GM-ignition-switch on them!
With all the technology advancement and quality checks being made in the auto industry in recent decades you would expect big time car makers to be able to make fully reliable machines. But based on what we’re seeing, and judging by the number of recalls in the past 10 years, cars are actually less reliable today than they were in the 90s. Disconcerting, isn’t it?
