2005-14 Ford Mustang, 2005-06 Ford GT recalled

Crossover Car Conversions has recalled the 2005-2014 Ford Mustang and 2005-2006 Ford GT to replace their faulty Takata airbags. As with all Takata-related recalls, the campaign concerns airbag inflators that degrade due to a combination of heat and humidity. If an affected car is involved in an accident triggering the airbags, the metal inflator can explode or rupture under too much internal pressure.
