Ford faces its own quality problem recall
Ford has to recall 5,000 Mustang Mach-E in Canada because of two different problems: one because of a windscreen that may not be properly attached and another because of a panoramic roof glass that may not be properly attached.
The irony of the story is that Darren Palmer, chief developer of the electric car division at Ford, had previously made fun of quality problems at Tesla, saying: “The doors fit properly, the plastics and other materials colour-match, the bumpers don’t fall off, the roof doesn’t come off when you wash it, the door handles don’t get stuck in cold weather…” Apparently, he forgot to check the windows.
Update 27 September 2021:
The recall for the Ford Mustang Mach-E is actually more extensive than initially reported. After the recall for around 5,000 units of the electric car had already been launched in Canada, it has now been revealed that the problems may affect a total of 38,714 Mustang Mach-E in North America and Europe.
