Safety and Security
The 2008 Mustang adds standard side air bags to an already comprehensive
safety package. Along with the addition of seat-mounted thorax side
air bags, safety features also include dual-stage driver and front
passenger air bags, safety belt pretensioners, seat weight sensing
system for the passenger seat and crash severity sensing.
An optional active anti-theft
package offers customers an added level of security. It includes
a sensing module to guard against tow-away thefts, an interior motion
sensor to detect smash-and-grab break-ins, a separate alarm sounder
— in addition to the vehicle horn — to thwart thieves
trying to disable the horn, and a high-capacity, 60-ampere-hour
battery that sounds the alarm longer.
