Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Reporting safety defects (U.S. only)

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could


If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Ford Motor Company.

If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer, or Ford Motor Company.

To contact NHTSA, you may call the Vehicle Safety Hotline toll-free at 18883274236 (TTY: 18004249153); go to http://www.safercar.gov; or write to:
