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 #2

Oct 012005

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,600 miles


Fuel pump had to be replaced after only 6,600 miles. Company indicated no recalls, but this seems ridiculous for such low miles. Warranty had expired 6 months before. Vehicle always had low power.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,068 miles
Started car in parking lot, rumbled violently. Put car into drive, turning out of parking lot car dies and am able to coast to the side of the road. Fuel pump had gone out on car. New pump directly from Ford dealership was put into car. 3 weeks later I was at a stop light, car started to rumble again, was able to creep through the intersection before car died in the middle of a 4 lane highway. Fuel pump and fuel pump fuse needed to be replaced.
