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.

2002 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Mustang GT V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


So first we noticed the speedometer just seeming wrong, so we drove my husband's mustang and my explorer next to each on the freeway while we talked on our cell phones to compare our speeds. His speedometer shows him going anywhere from 5-15 over what he is actually going, which has caused a few accidental tickets. Well MONTHS later, we realized the odometer was wrong too. No idea when that started messing up. We just started realizing that oil changes seemed to be getting waaay too close together. It goes up about 1.8 miles for every mile you actually drive, but no telling when this started...

We feel so cheated on this issue. The value of the car will forever be seen as way lower than it probably really would be because the miles are rediculously high on it, which is why we have never decided to fix it. There's no way of knowing how many miles are on it anyhow, so whats the point of investing more money? Time for a new car!
