  1. I have a 2019 California Sp (convertible), a beautiful car and runs like a deer. I tried to find a Shelby this year and not one available in a close area.. Why? Dealers said they cannot get one.

  2. Hallo. I’m a Mustang owner from Italy. I took my car to my Ford seller because of a problem in the battery. I then knew there is a recall on going for my GT model for an issue on brake pedal.
    The recall you wrote about in this article.
    The thing is they don’t know how to fix it because they didn’t receive any instruction yet, but at the same time they cannot give my car back because is a security recall !

    So my question is: has any owner in USA already got it fixed? How long am I supposed to wait ?
    Thanks in advance
