    Owners should wait on Ford and hope the pedal bracket doesn’t fail?

    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.

    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

    I got the recall letter for my gt500. I called for appointment and was given one to inspect if the part needs replacement. If is needed I have to wait until the part arrives for appointment. I told her order the part since the recall letter does not says anything about inspection. The life and material risk is to high to prolong the issue The job time schedule is haft a day

    Ford in Spain issued me with the recall notice however the dealer wants to check and only replace the part of it has already failed! Go figure.
