Recall for 2003/04 stangs and suvs

WASHINGTON -- The government has opened an investigation into the acceleration of some Ford Motor Co. sport utility vehicles and the company's Mustang sports car, officials said Tuesday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its Web site that it was investigating reports that the engine throttle became stuck in the open position in Ford Explorers and Mercury Mountaineers, causing unwanted vehicle acceleration.

The probe involves about 690,000 Explorers and Mountaineers from the 2002 model year. NHTSA said its preliminary investigation was prompted by 15 complaints and one reported crash.

The government is reviewing accelerator pedal interference with the carpet in the 2003 model year of the Mustang, Mustang convertible and Mustang GT. The review also involves the 2004 Mustang.

NHTSA said seven consumers who complained said the problem involved the position, design and installation of the carpeting. The probe involves about 20,000 Mustangs.

Ford spokeswoman Kristen Kinley said the company was working with NHTSA but that it was too early in the investigation to speculate on an outcome.

The first time I've ever heard of a recall for Mustangs. No flagship car should have any business being on any recall list, my opinion

^ Yeah, that is so true.


Who says we're the "flagship" car? haha, I dunno about that. And I think this may be a repost.

It is for the 03-04 guys

And, I believe the Ford GT is ford's flagship at the moment...which also has recalls. If I would to call something a flagship, I would say it would be the F-Series trucks...which too have recalls.

Then again, every car company has recalls...when you have moving parts, there will be something wrong.

Re: Recall for 2003/04 stangs and suvs

We could debate for a while about who the flagship is.

The Ford GT is definitely the most recognizable, but out of the league of 99% of ppl.

The Mustang, I'd go ahead and say just the Cobra, is high performance, good looks.

The F-Series probably sells more than anything else, so that's the only way I'd call it "flagship."

I don't even really know what makes a car a flagship car anyways.

With Chevy, I think most ppl would say it's the Corvette, but to my knowledge, which is very limited on Chevy, they don't have a(n almost) supercar like the Ford GT that's not at least Corvette based.

Re: Recall for 2003/04 stangs and suvs

I agree about the GT, but Ford themselves call it their flagship. Not quite sure why. I also agree to the F150 statement as the only reason I call it the flagship is because of sales and the number of years they have been #1 selling. The cobra is too limited to call a flagship...and when I say limited, I mean that a large number of people can't tell the difference between a Cobra and a V6. Hell, my boss and a number of other people at car shows think I drive a viper. lol.

But, then again, like you said, we could debate for hours over this.

yup, and they wont advertise it even if it would save lives... cuz that would cost to much and the CEO's wouldnt get their XXX mil in bonuses this year.
