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

Mustang 6-cyl

The speedometer in 1998 Mustang stopped working intermittently. It will sometimes gauge speed incorrectly, and tell I am going about 85 mph when I am doing anywhere from 15-30 mph. Then it will all of a sudden stay on 0 mph. Sometimes turning the car off and restarting it resets it, other times it does not. I would say that the speedometer doesn't work accurately about 50% of the time. There was nothing that lead up to this happening, it just started one day. There is no way to tell if it is going to work when I turn it on or not. Sometimes it will get stuck on 0 mph for days, and the only time it will reset itself is when I get on a highway and do about 65 mph. So far, nothing has been done to correct the problem.
