2.3 liter RECALL !!!! Risk of Fire/Parling Brake Failure

Link to recall details;
2015 Ford Mustang With 2.3-Liter Engine Recalled for Possible Fire Risk | Edmunds.com

Affects 2.3 L Mustang built from February 14, 2014 to February 10, 2015 at Flat Rock Assembly Plant.

Ford Statement;
"Prolonged exposure to elevated underbody temperatures might cause degradation of the fuel tank and fuel vapor lines, which could eventually result in a fuel leak, In addition, prolonged exposure to elevated underbody temperatures might cause the parking brake cable seals to degrade, potentially affecting parking brake functions."

Call Ford at 1-800-392-3673 to verify if your pony is part of the affected group of Mustangs.

I called & verified mine is affected & was advised to wait until I get a letter from Ford on how to proceed with getting the recall stuff fixed. Called dealer & they said they could do nothing without a letter from Ford. I explained I do a 43 mile commute each way with regular traffic jams & I'm concerned, again nothing happening without Fords letter.

Recall to start July 6th! So WTF I'm supposed to ride this POS around for over a month in the heat of Summer & just keep checking I'm not on fire? So much for vacation.

This will be in for service for the 5th time before the first oil change is due. I'm at the point I hope the POS burns to the ground so I can get a Camaro!
