WASHINGTON — U.S. auto safety regulators are investigating Ford Motor Co.'s handling of a June 2022 recall of nearly 50,000 Mustang Mach-Es after new reports of power loss.
NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation said it received 12 consumer complaints alleging a high-voltage battery main contactor failure in 2021-22 Ford Mustang Mach-E crossovers that were included in the recall and had been remedied before the incidents.
The agency said it has opened the investigation — known as a "recall query" — to assess Ford's recall remedy. An estimated 64,727 Mustang Mach-Es could be affected.
There have been no reports of injuries, fires, accidents or deaths, according to a document detailing the investigation.
