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.

2003 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 092005

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles


Complete loss of traction - spin out at 30mph while other cars passed me by normally. Felt like the rear end just could not stay on the road. Crawled 100 miles to the airport at 30-35mph with constant loss of traction most of the way on a moist highway. Car kept wanting to turn sideways. Tires looked good and still do. Tried shutting the trac on/off, no change either way. Could not keep the car straight on the highway as the rear end kept sliding all over the place. I feel like the traction control was locked in either the on or off position or, the emergency brake was on. Scary. This happened in southern Oregon, car was purchased in souther California. Dealer in or won't look at, since I can't reproduce effect.

A noise came from the left front wheel strut. The left wheel became detached when making a left turn which caused the vehicle to spin out of control.
