02-27-08: Ford Motor Co. says it is recalling 470,000 Ford Mustangs from the 2005-2008 model years to recalibrate how forcefully the air bag deploys on the front passenger side of the car.
Ford spokesman Wesley Sherwood says internal testing showed the air bag could injure a small, unbelted passenger. The recall was posted Wednesday on the website of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Sherwood says there were no reports of injuries or accidents tied to the recall.
The Dearborn automaker will notify customers by mail in early March. Owners can take their vehicle to a dealer to have the air bag recalibrated to deploy at a lower force.
2005-2008 Mustang owners can go to the Ford Service Website and enter their VIN number to see if their car is affected by this recall
