2015 Ford Mustang

Ford has issued a small - but significant - recall for one of its spotlight cars: the 2015 Mustang.

The recall affects just 53 cars, with 50 in the United States and three in Canada. Ford said the passenger side safety belt buckle tension sensor may not have been calibrated properly by the supplier. This could lead to "misclassification" of the passenger seat occupant, and could cause the airbag to deploy improperly.

A Ford spokesperson didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. In a statement, the automaker said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries, and dealers will replace the buckle assembly at no cost to customers. The cars affected were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan from Aug. 18 to Oct. 2.

Along with the aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150, the Mustang is one of the most important launches for the Blue Oval this year. The Mustang, which has fresh styling, a new suspension and uses turbocharging, is attempting to retrench Ford's position as a leader in sports cars against strong competition from traditional Detroit rivals Chevy and Dodge.
