Ford Recalls Over 38,000 Mustang Mach-E

Ford Mustang Mach-Es, built between February 24 and June 18, 2021, are affected by a quite significant recall that concerns potentially improperly bonded windshields and sunroofs.

We already heard that about 5,000 were recalled in Canada and now it turns out that a total of 38,714 units in North America and Europe have to be recalled, according to Automotive News.

All 38,714 Mach-E are affected by the windshield problem (it can separate from a vehicle during a crash), and 27,318 Mach-Es additionally have a bonding problem with the panoramic sunroof, which can separate from a vehicle while driving.

Ford says that is unaware of any accidents or injures related to both recalls but will replace the windshield and sunroof at dealerships.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration listed the recalls in the U.S. on September 14, pointing out 17,692 and 13,544 potentially affected vehicles.
