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.

2001 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 052003

Mustang V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles


Before the warranty ran out I took it in several times with pulling to the right issues and it sounded like a train type sound when at low speeds, never could find a problem. Finally one of the calipers broke in a parking lot and I had to have it towed in. Their tech found calipers and rotors were defective but had to pay out of my own pocket due to being out of warranty even though there were notes I took it in complaining for months.

I wrote Ford a letter and only response I got was sorry, no compensation, even the tech called them for me insisting a defect with no help. Once all this was replaced, problem was fixed.
