2015 Mustang: Ford Ponies Up First Safety Recall (Already)

Covering just 53 cars (50 in the U.S. and three in Canada), the recall addresses a potential issue with the safety belt buckle for the front passenger seat.

In those cars, a component that supplies belt tension might not have been properly calibrated and in full compliance of a federal safety standard—which could, potentially, lead to an issue with passenger airbag deployment.
