Ford recalls cars with manual transmission – can catch fire

Ford is recalling more than 8,000 manual-transmission Mustang models the automaker has built this year. The cars can simply burn up.

Cars with manual transmissions are getting longer and longer. And there are many reasons for that. At Ford, one of them is fire. Or at least the risk of fire.

Therefore, the brand is now recalling 8,161 Mustang models built this year.

The problem is, say both Ford and the US authorities, that a hose that maintains hydraulic pressure in the clutch can spring a leak.

That's what Car and Driver writes.

Ford has confirmed the recall to the media, but says at the same time that it is not aware of any owners having gone astray or died as a result of the error.

The car brand can also add that the fault has been discovered at a time when a third of the cars have not yet reached the customers.

But should the leak occur, it could increase the risk of a traffic accident and a fire in the engine compartment. Therefore, Ford is now recalling all the cars.

In the coming days and weeks, Ford will contact the owners of the cars that have already had number plates on them and ask them to visit a workshop.

Here the cars must be inspected for the fault. And if the technicians find a leak or the fault in other ways, Ford covers the cost of the repair. Recalls due to the car brands' own mistakes are nothing new.

In our latitudes, for example, it has come to light that Ford may have manufactured 5,000 cars so badly that these may not be salvageable. Read more about it here .
