Delivery of 500 Ford Mustang Mach-Es still delayed by seatbelt repair (freep.com)

January 11, 2022

An estimated 500 customers scheduled to receive their Ford Mustang Mach-E SUVs in December are still waiting for seat belt repair that must be completed prior to delivery, the automaker has confirmed to the Free Press.

In late December, Ford alerted its dealers to needed safety repair involving certain 2021-22 model year Mach-E SUVs, triggering a hold on any undelivered new vehicles built from Oct. 5 to Nov. 18.

Initially, Ford told the Free Press 2,304 Mach-E vehicles were affected. Of that number, 741 were already in customer hands and 1,563 were being held by dealers, Ford spokesperson Said Deep confirmed Dec. 20.

On Monday, he updated the number of Mach-E vehicles waiting to be fixed.

Right now, the vehicles may have a rear seat belt that could detach and fail to restrain an occupant during a crash on both the Mach-E and the Ford Maverick pickup truck built between Oct. 6 and Oct. 20. Ford did not provide updated data on the Maverick repairs.

In this case, the compliance recall reflects the fact that a supplier produced steel plates with extruded bolt holes that were not within specification, Ford said.

For some Ford customers, the repair issue also delayed delivery of the $7,500 tax credit that people had planned to take in the 2021 tax year. The credit is applied to the year a vehicle is delivered, not ordered.

Meanwhile, the trucking industry has been disrupted by a shortage of drivers and that's adding to delivery delay.

I wish it would say how long before they start delivering remaining MachE's...

I guess that helicoil fix they were looking into wasn't good enough huh?

Just picked mine up tonight, and I'm happy to finally get it after ordering it in June. The wait since it was built in October has been the worst!

Yup, I knew this already, but what I don’t know is why it’s takin them so long to get them to dealers for the quick fix with HeliCoils?

Was yours subject to the recall? If so, there’s hope for me…

It was not. It arrived at the dealer earlier today. Being an October build I was worried it would be.

Edit: I live just the other side of Auburn from you. Small world lol.

It's not lack of parts, but likely lack of labor.
