Moreover, it also covers the Mustangs 2015. The registered cars in specific cities are included in this recall. The cities in this regard are Texas, Virginia, Hawaii, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina.

The disintegration of the pedal part occurs due to high temperature and humidity. In this case, lights stay on and confuse other car drivers. It can cause dangerous situations in which a crash can happen. The car’s automatic transmissions allow the driver to shift out of the park gear without applying the brake through the feet. This replacement will be free of cost.
