I am the third owner of a Bullitt that was purchased at a Carmax where i had it imported from another state
I received a letter from Ford about the safety recall so maybe it depends on where you bought it or if they are using the DMV registration database....not sure

The VIN is directly associated with the title/registration. Whoever registered the car last through the BMV is the owner of record and will get all recall notices.

I'm pretty sure my air bag light is going to burn out considering how long it's been on. Well hey, at least the 2015 mustang was the top selling 2 door coupe in the world last year :/

#ford #fordmustang #takataairbagrecall

Still getting this message on the ford owner webpage.
The bullitt is in Indiana now but My car spent most of its life in Houston so a good chance the air bag is affected.

Come on ford, My faith in your goodwill will definitely affect my future car buying decisions.

I spoke with my dealer yesterday about this very topic. In a nut shell she was kind enough to tell me that the urgency depends on the recall number either starting with a 14 or 15. Mine was not in the urgent pile. I asked her if Ford would disable the airbag and she said no but that there is a temporary fix for the more urgent ones which I can only assume would be a disable of it until airbags arrive. My brother has an Acura and they gave him a loaner car of his choice from Enterprise until his is replaced which could take 3 more months. Acura told him they are taking this very seriously since they have now had 10 fatalities due to the airbags, mostly in Toyota and Honda brand cars. If it was super urgent I assume you would have had to bring your Stang in for the temporary fix by now. Otherwise its sit and wait.

Well, finally some decent news I hope. Received the following letter in the mail today.



Now the hunt begins to find a local dealer that actually has the part.

Just speculation, but I think it may be geographically based. Those of us in the southern humid climates may be taken care of first.

Got a letter today saying they expect parts would become available in the 4th quarter of this year for us out here.

Got my air Bag replaced today (for the car that is) took all of 15 minutes. Paperwork is about an hour, but they will mail the warranty to you if you don't want to wait

Only took TWO years to get the recall done
First set of parts came in, but the parts themselves were recalled by Ford
and I had to wait another month for the replacement parts
Now the recall is finished
