Vehicles equipped with the failed hitch harness module circuit can catch fire and cause injury if dirt and moisture build up on the component and cause an electrical short, which can happen whether or not the vehicle is in motion. Fortunately no fires, crashes or injuries reported anyway in the US – on the other hand, no solution to the recall problem has been identified either. In the meantime, the automaker has issued a stop-sale order to the affected population, instructed dealers to remove the tow bar module fuse and urged owners to park outside and away from structures until a permanent fix is announced.

Driving the tow bar of that recall on our weekly countdown is a report on the return of the Ford Mustang Mach-E for the 2023 model year after supply chain shortages previously forced the automaker to stop ordering for the outgoing model. The order reopened on August 30, although potential buyers may need to adjust their financing plan as starting prices are well up across the lineup by $3,200 to $11,000. In addition to the upward movement in pricing, the range of the all-electric SUVs Premium trim also goes up (when equipped with the extended 91-kilowatt-hour battery pack) by nearly 5% to 290 miles.
