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

Jan 062010

Mustang GT 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,329 miles


We parked in the supermarket in town and switched the car off. I inserted the key into the ignition and tried to start the the key wouldn't turn; try to turn the key to the accessories;still no movement.Called a mechanic nogo....called Ford and was told to tow it in...done that 70$. Got a ride home and back the next afternoon to Ford.They told me they removed the Ignition cylinder and key coded a new cylinder and installed it $301.38. It was a very cold day and we where only 15 klms from town. Ford should recall parts that are safety issue before they hurt someone seriously. Please feel free to add my name to any class action lawsuit that may develope over this issue. Thank-You
