2005 to 2014 Mustang Takata Airbag Recall

For those 2005 – 2014 Mustang owners that have not yet had their vehicle’s Takata airbag recall completed, here is a great opportunity.

Ford has agreed to have technicians on-site at our March 21 Spring Pony Roundup at YearOne to complete the required recall.

If you want to take advantage of this opportunity, your part is to verify that your Mustang needs the Takata airbag inflator replaced and letting me know so I can in turn let Ford know how many repair kits to bring to the show.

Check your VIN at this site: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls

You do not have to be a member of the NE Georgia Mustang Club to take advantage of this opportunity!

If your Mustang needs the Takata upgrade email me your name, the year of your Mustang and your Mustang’s VIN before March 2, 2020.

My email address is Rick Schmidt at hillside96@live.com

Here is background information on the Takata recall: https://performance.ford.com/enthusiasts/media-room/2019/08/airbag-recall.html

The Takata airbag recalls are the largest and most complex recalls in U.S. automotive history. The recalls currently affect 19 automotive manufacturers and roughly 37 million vehicles. Among these affected vehicles are 2005-2014 model year Mustang vehicles.  Parts are readily available to repair currently recalled Mustang vehicles. Ford sent out weekly mailings last October and November to all Mustang owners whose vehicle currently has an open Takata airbag recall. It is important that you determine if your vehicle is affected and, if so, have it repaired FREE by Ford.  In some cases, only the driver’s or passenger’s side may be affected. In other cases, both the driver’s side and passenger’s side need to be repaired.

The passenger side airbag cover is not replaced during the repair, so any signatures or other insignia on your dash will remain

 

The NEGMC President’s Award & Prestige Awards Update

Earlier this year the NEGMC announced that the Club was creating two awards, the President’s Award and the Prestige Awards.  The aim of these Awards was to encourage membership participation in the Club’s various activities and to acknowledge those members that do participate.  These are the points totals as of 10.20.19.

There are two award categories:

First is the NEGMC President’s Award – This Award is for the members and their activities with the Club during the year.  Points are assigned and any member that achieves a points total of 100 points are more will receive this Award.

Next is the NEGMC Prestige Awards which are broken down into four class groupings by age of the NEGMC Members cars. Those breakdowns are: Prestige Class 64.5 – 78; Prestige Class 79 – 93; Prestige Class 94 – 04 and Prestige Class 05 – 19.  The Prestige Awards are given to each NEGMC Member that has accumulated the top points in each class.

There are still several qualifying NEGMC Meetings and Car Show remaining for this year that can help you achieve your goals.

Additional information is available on the web site’s Awards tab or by this link:  NE Georgia Mustang Club Awards Programs

Red Grille Medallion Award!

Congratulations to Kenny and Lisa for being awarded the MCA Red Grille Medallion for their 2004 Mach 1.  In addition to the Red Grille Medallion Award, they also received a Gold Award for the Houston show.

Great Going!!

For those of you thinking of striving for their own Grille Medallion this is how to achieve that goal:

When you attend a National event you will earn 2 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 1 point for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

When you attend a Grand National event you will earn 3 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 2 points for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

It takes 20 accumulated points to earn one of two different types of Grille Medallions:

  • Red medallions are awarded in the Occasionally Driven; Daily Driven and Modified Classes
  • Blue medallions are awarded in the Concours; Thoroughbred and Unrestored classes

Once you accumulate 20 points then you simply need to fill out the form (typically in the MCA magazine) and submit it.

It takes a dedicated individual and/or individuals to achieve this recognition which only adds to the awards prestige.

Again congratulations to Kenny and Lisa as it has been several years since a NE Georgia Mustang Club member has received a Grille Medallion.
