DEARBORN, Mich., March 15, 2017
Ford is issuing a recall for approximately 6,000 2017 Ford Mustangs built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Jan. 13, 2017 to Jan. 31, 2017. . The Mustangs are being recalled to inspect the left interior door handle return spring.
In the affected vehicles, the left-hand interior door handle return spring may have been installed incorrectly, which could cause the return spring to become unseated. If the interior door handle return spring is unseated, the inertial loads experienced by the interior door handle may cause the door to unlatch during a side impact, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue. Ford reference number for this recall is 17C04. Dealers will inspect the left-hand interior door handle spring and service the vehicle as required at no cost to the customer.
