The parts referenced in the ABPA’s statements were used for both manufacturing and service replacement. Ford tested the parts and found them to meet its specifications for the Mustang. The statements in Ford’s recent YouTube videoare true and accurate, including Ford’s claim that collision replacement parts are the same as those used to manufacture the vehicle, according to Ford.
Ford claims part materials are exhaustively analyzed and tested during the vehicle development process to meet internal and external requirements for safety, quality, fuel economy, cost-of-ownership and breakthrough technologies.
Original specifications for the 2005-2009 Mustang called for single-density polypropylene front and rear bumper isolators. But as the vehicle had been tested and certified using a double-density polypropylene front bumper isolator, Ford maintained the use of that material until the vehicle could be tested again and certified using the single-density polypropylene front bumper isolator.
