Took me 565 days after receiving my letter to get it replaced. No loaner, no help from the dealer, no help from Ford, Just an fyi, under most state's lemon laws, your are allowed to sue a mfg for breach of warranty if they can't get the replacement parts in a timely manner. (Not sure what you could do if your warranty has expired). I took on Ford and won enough in the settlement to purchase a really nice supercharger if I wanted to.

I finally received this in the mail on the Jan18. Called dealer same day, got appointment for the next day. It took 15 min to fix. After 20 months ,finally. I called Ford a few times during the long wait, no help at all. Seems funny that some of the import car companies were offering loaners. They seemed concerned about their customers. Not Ford,, they told me they were not doing anything like that. I really like my Mustang, but really does make me think twice about who I buy my next car from.

Received my 3rd letter from Ford last October 2016 saying my airbag will be available the fourth quarter of 2016...Now is end of Jan 2017 and still nothing. So tired of this. Wish I could sue Ford.

Did/are they replacing both drivers & passengers airbags at the same time?
On mine, they didn't.

There were 100 million airbags recalled worldwide, & about 40 million have been replaced so far (last i heard)
& Ford has no control over that.

Someone I work with only just got told that their airbag is on the list of killers, they have a Chrysler vehicle. So at least you knew right? It was kinda exciting knowing that my death trap actually could blow my face off, made those interactions with people who almost hit me that more exciting =[]

Got my notice in 2015. When I took my 14 in a few days ago for an oil change, I asked about the status of my recall. They replaced it while I was there.

I got my notice yesterday. I live in a dry climate and my Mustang was one of the very last of the 14s produced, so I'm at the verrrrrrry bottom of the list. I called the dealer today and the service woman on the phone was very nice, but no help. She said that there were over 200 people in front of me and that she would be happy to put me on the list. When I asked how long it would take before they got to me, she replied with "months."

I know this isn't totally Ford's fault, but I'm a bit exasperated at the fact that I'm driving around with a bomb that could blow my head off. Oh, and for the record, it's been raining like a mofo in Southern California the past few days. After the love tap I got from a woman that was texting last month, yeah, I'm a little concerned about this.

My car was built in Feb of 13 as a 14 model and still no letter for me to bring it in. I figure mine has got to be close to the beginning of the model year. I have received the letter stating that my car is under the recall but that's it.

I just received my letter to get my airbag replaced, FINALLY. It said to contact the dealer for installation. Problem is, they gave me a dealer name that is not near me and in another state, only about 1 hour away tho. I will call my dealer and see if they can do it, providing they have the new bags. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I have 2 2014s - Never received a letter for either one. I checked with a dealer (2-3 miles away). They told me to bring one in & they replaced it in about 30 min.

They said that was the last one in stock so I need to wait a week or so for the other car.

Side Note: A weird thing happened when the airbag was replaced. The car was quieter (exhaust note), produced less power, less responsive, and MPG on the hwy dropped from 23 MPG to 16.9 MPG.

I drove 500 Hwy miles the day after it was replaced, and then a return trip yielded the same 16.9 MPG on the way back. All refuels were with Exxon 93 which is what I always run.

I thought perhaps they installed an updated tune, but dealer denies this & it's not on the invoice.

Still scratching my head on this one. A trip back to the dealer for diagnosis pending.

That is very weird. I would not be happy at all about that. If the CEL is not on, I doubt they will be able to find anything. Mechanics don't seem to be able to diagnose things like they did years ago. They rely to much on what a computer tells them. I had one tell me one time at the chevy dealer that if the CEL light is not on to give us an idea on what is the problem, then you don't have a problem. My experience after that pretty much tells me that was a true statement. Good luck on getting it fixed and let us know what they say.

Minor issue there though...I do have a lethal h pipe installed as well...

Going to put off the air bag replacement on the 2nd car until I work this out.

I'm hoping it will normalize on its own, but I'm shocked if the battery disconnect was so impactful. I didn't check mileage manually so you may be correct about that. I hope you are, so I'll verify with pen/paper until I solve this. I suppose the other symptoms could be my imagination after noticing the mileage but I don't think so. Time will tell.

Right now, I'm looking at obvious things like dragging brakes that could be coincidental. So far I've found nothing else.

CR, I was working on our car and disconnected the battery, after that our mileage went down from 25avg to 21 or 22avg. After a month or so it is starting to come back up. Weird thing is the B mode setting on trip/fuel did not change. I did not check mileage with a pencil either, sorry.

I think I was in and out of the dealership in 10 minutes. I had been on a waitlist for a few months. I would have the repair done as soon as possible after parts are available:

Can some of you guys with 14's that have had this fixed already, tell me what your manufacturing date of your car is so I can get an idea if mine is coming up? Thanks.

I called my local dealer and asked them about getting my car fixed even though I have not received a fix it letter and they are going to order a new air bag for it and call me when it comes in.

Well, almost three weeks later after ordering the parts and no airbag parts yet. The dealer told me today that they seemed to be on back order again and have no idea when it will be in.

It's been almost two years since I was first notified. Crazy.
