Ford EVs Recalled In Australia Over Labeling Issue

Aside from closing out 2023 as last year’s most recalled automotive manufacturer in the U.S., Ford has also faced its fair share of issues in other parts of the world, too. That includes Australia, where the automaker has issued a fair number of recalls for various models as of late, and now that list has grown yet again, this time, to include a pair of Ford EVs sold in that country.

Those Ford EVs are the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford E-Transit, as first noticed by CarExpert, which are being recalled for the same issue – incorrect labels on those models’ charge cables. “The charge cables fitted to the vehicles are missing the required Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) certification label specified by the Electrical Equipment Safety Systems / Australian Communications Media Authority, EESS/ACMA (RCM AS/NZS 4417.1),” the recall notice reads. “In the absence of the necessary labelling, vehicles may not meet the required standards.”

Ford notes that there is no safety hazard associated with this recall, and the defect will not affect the performance of these vehicles. Regardless, it affects a total of 241 Ford Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit models from the 2022 and 2023 model years, and customers can find a list of affected VINs by heading over here.

The Mach-E and E-Transit are the latest Ford models to face recalls in Australia over the past few weeks, joining the Ford Escape, which was recalled over an issue that could cause a loss of steering control in May. The Ford F-150 – which is being converted to right-hand drive by a third-party company in that same country – has also been recalled multiple times since its launch there, too.

        You would very upset if one of those 200 cars was yours.

        That is the saddest part. Across two models and two model years, it only effects 200 vehicles over an entire continent. Apparently, these vehicles are embarrassingly unpopular in Australia.

    Yes, they are ALL incorrectly labeled as a “Mustang”.

    Recalls for Ford are a worldwide problem, no country is immune from Ford recalls, and Failure Farley continues to be compensated in excess of $20 million/year.
