The recall of 75 Ford Mustang Mach-E EVs just announced by the American automaker is, in itself, not major, but it comes as the latest in a troubling series of initial-quality-related problems that have accompanied the launch of new Ford models lately.
That series started with the problems plaguing the next-generation Explorer, followed more recently by issues with the Bronco Sport and the next-gen Ford F-150. And now the Mustang Mach-E.
Let’s say it's starting to get awkward.
This time, the reason for the recall is that the affected models have defective chassis bolts. The situation adds another setback for Ford is its quest to launch the Mach-E, which already is debuting about eight weeks behind its original schedule.
