Ford Mustang Recall Faulty Brake Fluid Sensor, Safety Risk

 2020 to 2023 Ford Mustang Recall Faulty Brake Fluid Sensor188K 2020 to 2023 Ford Mustangs Recalled Over Safety Issue

Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for roughly 187,922 of its 2020 to 2023 Mustang vehicles due to a faulty brake fluid level sensor. Roughly 123 owners of Ford Mustangs from these model years filed warranty claims that alleged a loss of brake fluid in their vehicles.

While none of these claims were tied to an inoperative brake fluid level sensor, the automaker discovered the sensor may fail to activate its visual warning indicator if the fluid level is low.

“Brake failure is a safety issue,” said California Lemon Law Attorney James Johnson. “Motorists rely on their brakes to stop their vehicle and should be alerted when fluids are low immediately.”

Should the brake fluid level go below the recommended level in the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir, a driver could crash the vehicle, according to a report filed by Ford with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The official notice to alert Ford Mustang owners about the repair will be sent out on Dec. 4, 2023. However, there are no known collisions or injuries from the defect at this time. Also, owners of affected Mustangs may take their car to the dealership for a free repair/update when it is available.

Meanwhile, owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 23C35.
