Ford recalls some 2022 Mustang Mach-E SUVs over faulty Axles that may break

Ford has issued an official recall for certain 2022 Mustang Mach-E electric crossovers due to the possibility of axle failure. The reported manufacturing error affects the Mustang Mach-right-rear E's axle half-shafts, according to the automaker.

According to Green Car Congress, the affected 2022 Mustang Mach-E SUVs' half-shaft stem could break when loaded. The recall issued by Ford and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may affect nearly 1,200 models (NHTSA).

Ford is carrying out this recall as a precautionary measure, as it does with many others. There have been no reported injuries or deaths as a result of the problem, but the possibility of a few different related issues is cause for concern.

The NHTSA warns that if a car's half-shaft fails, it can literally roll away while parked. It's a good idea for Mustang Mach-E owners to get into the habit of using their EV's parking brake until they know if the recall affects their crossover and/or it's fixed at their local dealer.

A faulty half-shaft can also cause a vehicle to lose power. The other primary reason for the recall is that if the part breaks while driving, it could pose a safety risk.

Ford dealers will check the serial number of your Mustang Mach-E and, if necessary, replace the right-rear half-shaft for free. According to the article, Ford will send out recall notices by September 19, 2022.

Ford also pointed out that most of the impacted vehicles are unsold, and less than 1 percent of the parts are expected to have this condition. The company also wrote that "dealership mobile inspection and vehicle pick-up and delivery will be included as an option for dealers that participate in the program." In addition, customers were already notified via FordPass on August 31, 2022.
