Ford Mustang Recalled In Australia Over Faulty Fuel Lines

In recent months, Ford has issued a number of recalls in Australia – most of them pertaining to the Ford F-150, which just went on sale in that market not too long ago and is being converted to right-hand drive by a third-party company. However, that popular pickup certainly isn’t alone in that regard, as it is now being joined by select Ford Mustang models in Australia, too.

Select 2021-2023 Ford Mustang models are now being recalled in Australia over an issue with their fuel lines, according to CarExpert, though there isn’t any sort of safety concern related to this defect. Rather, this recall stems from the fact that these fuel lines may cause those vehicles to not be in compliance with Australian emissions control standards. In total, 610 vehicles are said to be affected, and owners can find a list of those models and their VINs here. Ford will replace the faulty lines free of charge for those that are impacted.

“Due to a manufacturing defect, the low-pressure fuel delivery line may not meet specifications,” the recall notice reads. “This could result in the vehicle encountering fuel evaporation outside the requirements of Emissions Standards Regulations. There is no safety hazard associated with this recall and the defect will not affect the performance of the vehicle. Vehicles are not compliant with Australian Design Rule 79/04 – Emissions Control for Light Vehicles.”

In addition to this recall, FoMoCo has issued quite a few for the Australian Ford F-150 as of late, as well as the 2021 Ford Escape over an issue that could cause a loss of steering control, incorrect labels affixed to Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford E-Transit models, and the redesigned Ford Transit Connect, which is being recalled in Australia over a software issue with the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM).
