Ford recalls electric version of iconic Mustang muscle car, citing manufacturing defect
09/11/2022 // Kevin Hughes // Views

The Ford Motor Company announced a recall of the electric version of its Mustang muscle car, citing a manufacturing defect.

The Michigan-based car maker said it is recalling 1,175 units of its Mustang Mach-E model due to concerns that the rear-axle half shafts on the vehicle's right side may have a manufacturing defect. This could mean the affected part could break easily, endangering drivers.

According to, broken axles pose an accident risk by making drivers lose control of their vehicles. Once an axle breaks completely, a vehicle will be unable to move. If in case the axle breaks while driving, a serious accident could occur.

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that if a car's half-shaft breaks, the vehicle could actually roll away while it is parked. A broken half-shaft can also cause a car to lose power and if the part breaks while driving, it could cause a safety hazard – which is the other main reason for the recall.

As part of the recall, dealers will examine the Mach-E and replace the right-rear half shafts as required. Ford announced that there have been no reports yet from owners of troubles with the vehicle.

The recall covers Mach-E models made between July 18 and July 29 at the Cuautitlan assembly plant in Mexico.

Car and Driver reported that the standard price of the 2022 Mustang Mach-E model when it was introduced last year was $43,995. Initial shipments of the 2022 Mach-E came in February.

Mach-E hit with multiple recalls over the past year

Ford's Mach-E had been hit with recalls before, according to


In May, a recall was issued for the all-wheel drive version of Mach-E because its powertrain control module safety software was found ineffective in detecting software errors that could lead to unintentional acceleration or deceleration.

A 2021 recall was issued because the car's windshields could detach. Another 2021 recall was issued because the front subframe bolts may not have been tightened properly during assembly.

Ford said these recalls are made as a preventive measure. There are currently no known injuries or deaths connected to the problem, but the various issues are a cause for worry. Ford has issued 50 recalls overall so far this year, which is the most by any manufacturer, per data from the NHTSA.

Toyota, General Motors announce recall of EVs

Toyota announced in June the recall of its bZ4X electric SUV. The company cautioned owners not to drive the car because the wheels may suddenly fall off.

The company has not yet found the problem. Last month, it offered to buy back the SUV from any owner who wants to be rid of a vehicle that cannot be driven. (Related: Toyota offers to buy back electric SUVs from customers following major glitch.)

General Motors also announced a recall of 4,465 Chevrolet Spark EVs produced between August 2012 and November 2015.
