Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission

Remote door does not work all of the time. Dealer replaced latch but did not correct the problem. Customer placed a small round magnet on the quarter panel on each side where the lid contacts the quarter panel temporarily correcting the problem. Customer would like the dealer to properly correct the problem. Car idles rough when accessorories are turned on. Transmission shifts harshly under various conditions. Transmission does not immediatelt engage in gear when going from park to drive. This seems to happen when car sits for an extended period of time but does not always occur. Customer has noticed at times an unusal large loss of transmission fluid but does not see a leak or smell. Right front door speaker cuts in and out.
