Attention owners of 2022 and 2023 Ford Mustangs! Ford has identified a potential issue with certain steering components that could lead to unexpected steering behavior.

The problem lies with a sensor that might be improperly calibrated, causing the steering wheel to turn unintentionally. This is due to a supplier-manufactured steering gear assembly containing a sensor with reversed polarity.

Thankfully, no accidents have been reported, but Ford is taking action to rectify the situation. Dealers will be updating the software controlling the steering system to ensure proper sensor function. Owners can expect notification letters in the mail soon.

Ford is recalling a significant number of Mustangs, with a total of 30,735 units affected. This comes after a successful year for the iconic car, with sales figures of 48,605 in 2023 and 47,566 in 2022, excluding the Mustang Mach-E.

The recall applies to the S550 Mustangs, which marked a major departure from the previous generation with the introduction of independent rear suspension across the lineup.

This wasn’t the first time Mustangs benefitted from this technology, although it was previously limited to specific models like the SVT Cobra from 1999 to 2004.

The S550 family also includes high-performance variants like the Shelby GT350 with its unique flat-plane crankshaft V8 engine and the supercharged Shelby GT500, which held the title of Ford’s most powerful production car until the recent arrival of the Mustang GTD.

Boasting over 800 horsepower, the GTD pushes the boundaries of a production car with its carbon fiber body, lack of trunk space, and racing-inspired suspension.
