    How can this recall effect vehicles built through April 27th 2024 when the last 2023 Mustang was built on April 6th 2023 and all of the other affected models listed are no newer than model year 2021?

      That info came straight from the NHTSA, so you’d have to ask them.

      Thought the same thing, how could my 2018 F150 be built in 2022-2024? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
