Safety Recall Notice 15S21 - July 2015

NHTSA Recall 15V-319
Impacts 2008 Ford Mustangs (and possibly other model years)

In certain vehicles, the front driver side air bag inflator housing may rupture and deploy abnormally in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the drivers side air frontal bag. An inflator rupture could result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Mailed from Ford July 2015.

Dealers have said that the new parts should be available first quarter of 2016.

So I'm guessing "No".

still waiting after receiving the "don't call us, we'll call you" letter back in the summer. In the meantime, still driving while worried about the airbag.

Drive mine every single day, and the airbag recall never even enters my mind.

I mean, the probability of being in an accident is slim in the first place. The probability of being in an accident that deploys the airbag(s) is even slimmer still. And the probability of my airbag being one of the small number of affected units is slimmer still.

Might as well worry about being struck by lightning - chances are probably about the same.

It's Going to be a Long Wait!

Just read that they are concentrating on cars in high-humidity areas first (Gulf coast and southern states) with Hondas and Chrysler products first as they have the most likelihood of having the issue. The NHTSA stated that it may be as much as FOUR YEARS before all the replacements are completed.

Personally, I'm not concerned at all. The number of incidents are so small compared to the total population affected you have a better chance of being struck by lightning twice in the same day. Or winning the lottery so you can afford that GT350!

So when I bought my bullitt from Houston, Texas I was excited for a salt free car. Well now the bullitt is in Indiana. I wonder if they will still consider it a gulf coast car or see it as in Indiana, thus being less risk... Damnit.

Still waiting here. But that is an interesting question...will Ford contact new owners if a car has been sold since the recall? Anybody know?
