While owners of stick-shift-equipped 2020 Ford Mustangs have their own concerns, those who drive 10-speed automatic 'Stangs should be aware of a new recall issued by the Blue Oval.

Per documents published via the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration this week, these cars may suffer cracked brake pedal brackets that greatly increase the risk of a crash. Importantly, this issue is said only to be present on certain 2020 model-year Mustangs without a clutch pedal.

According to the NHTSA summary, this bracket is at risk of breaking during a sudden stop. Thankfully, no reports of incidents or injuries from this defect have been submitted. The potential cause of the problem is cited by Ford as "insufficient design margins" involving the materials used to make the brake pedal assembly. Ford apparently changed from using nylon to polypropylene in 2020 Mustangs with automatic transmissions.
