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.

1999 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

May 292007

(reported on)

Mustang 4.6L V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 104,000 miles


When the car had under 3000 miles the shifter got stuck in reverse. It was under warranty and they replaced the transmission. They said there was a known problem with the manual 5 speed transmission. I have had no problems with the trans for the last 100,000 miles. I recently had the clutch replaced and the trans has locked up twice in the last two weeks. The last time I was able to get it out of reverse after several trys. This time I am having it towed to the Ford dealer that replaced the clutch. I will let you know what they tell me.
