2015 EcoBoost Mustang Recalled

15Mustang-EcoBoost_01

The recall bug has bitten the all-new 2015 EcoBoost Mustang in a big way as Ford started notifying owners of the affected vehicles. The EcoBoost models affected were built between Feb. 14, 2014 and Feb 10, 2015 at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant. In total 19,500 vehicles are affected by this recall.

The problem according to Ford is a situation where prolonged exposure to elevated under body temperatures could cause the fuel tank and fuel vapor lines to degrade. In English this means the fuel could leak out and a risk of fire is possible. Also this condition could cause the parking brake cable seals to degrade which could affect parking brake functions. Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires from these conditions.

To fix the issue Ford Dealers will replace the current fuel tank shield with a shield with better insulating capabilities along with installing thermal patches on the fuel tank and parking brake cables and install thermal wraps on the fuel vapor lines for free.

The Sterling Beast: AmericanMuscle Customer Dominic’s 2013 GT

With close to 80,000 Mustangs rolling off of the production line each year, it is amazing how each one can look so unique when given the proper care and attention like AmericanMuscle Customer Dominic has with his 2013 Sterling Grey GT. Giving Dominic’s Mustang a unique look is a mix parts such as MMD Side Louvers, MMD Matte Black Tail Light Trim, Black 20” AMR Wheels, and a RTR Decklid that all work seamlessly to create an intimidating and sleek ‘stang.

Helping Dominic’s Mustang to perform as unique as it looks, are a range of carefully selected parts. A Boss Intake Manifold, BBK 85mm Throttle Body, and Airaid Cold Air Intake allow Dominic’s Coyote to breathe easier. Pypes Off-Road H-Pipe with Pypes Bomb Axle-Back give his Mustang a dominating auditory presence to match its performance. A Bama Performance Tuner and Tune ties the whole package together and has Dominic’s Mustang putting the power to the pavement. “The power difference you could feel once the tune was loaded was incredible, “Dominic said, “A Tune is a ‘must do’ first mod for any Mustang owner.”

Having a head-turning Mustang like Dominic’s comes with more benefits than just the ride itself. Dominic’s Mustang has helped him to connect with other enthusiasts in his area by creating a network of Mustang owners who all share the same passion for their ‘stang. Dominic’s Mustang has even given him another opportunity to bond with his three children; from rides to school, to learning how to drive a manual, Dominic’s 5.0 is just as cherished and enjoyed by his children as it is by him. Who even said a Mustang could never be a family car?
