“Ford has announced plans to recall 17,692 of its all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUVs built between February 2020 and June 2021 because their windshields may not have properly adhered to their frames during production. In a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Ford says impacted owners will be notified starting October 27. Owners of the vehicles are advised to take it to their local dealer for repair.
In addition to the windshield issue, 13,544 Mach-Es are also recalled for a similar issue that affects the SUV’s glass sunroof. In that filing, Ford indicated that if loose, the SUV’s roof glass could potentially fly off while the vehicle is in use, causing a road hazard.”

To our knowledge, there haven’t been any incidents regarding these recall issues by consumers. However, auto glass that is installed improperly is still very concerning. It’s surprising that Ford isn’t notifying their customers directly until nearly a month after disclosing the recall. Especially those with the sunroof issue where other motorists might be at extreme risk.
