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.

Puddle of water is formed in the "well" behind the back seat where the convertible top sits when lowered. I also notice moisture in the other areas such as rear floor mats and trunk. This happens after rain or after car wash. I've noticed hundreds of same issues all over the internet and forums and I have absolutely no idea why nothing is being done about this. This distracts the driver and causes safety issues.

The problem is the control arms and bushings on the front end of the car. Whenwe brake all you can hear is a loud crunching noise. We got it fixed once in June at 7003 miles and it broke again at 8484 miles in July. The dealer and Ford refuse to fix the problem even though it is under warranty because they claim it will break again and again. It is a defect in the car. Quote from Ford it will cost us to much money.

2003 Ford Mustang cobra purchased on 11/08/03, vehicle will stall without warning when clutch is depressed. Often this happens when coming to a stop and shifting gears. When this happens the brakes and steering immediately stop working. Currently to date no adequate repair for this problem.

problem #1

Dec 102002

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 100 miles
Vehicle stalls when coasting in neutral with clutch released. Condition is most notable at highway speeds and when coasting downhill. Engine stall causes power steering and brakes to revert to manual which makes controlling the vehicle very dangerous.
