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.

The problems I am having with my 2004 Mustang cobra is the gas pedal getting stuck under the carpet and under the removable floor mat at wot and an annoying vibration at higher highway speeds. Nothing scarier than having your car continue to accelerate after you get off the gas and the traffic ahead is stopped and you are approaching triple digit speeds. I have had to depress the clutch and put the transmission into neutral, while letting the motor over rev and hit the rev-limiter, until I can dislodge the pedal. This a very dangerous situation on such a high performance vehicle making well over 400 rwhp. The other problem is a continued vibration I have since the transmission was replaced. At speeds near 80 mph the vibration begins and will get progressively worse, sounding like the rear glass is going to vibrate out of the car. The dealer has replaced the driveshaft, but I suspect the pinion angle is incorrect and causing a binding condition in the rear end, which can lead to premature bearing failure in the rear end.

Have had numerous instances of the gas pedal sticking and having a problem with vibration. My 2004 Ford Mustang GT also has problems with turning over when warm. The car has to be cranked many times before it will start. Have had the into the Ford dealer over 5 times for the same problems with no resolution.

I have a 2004 Mustang cobra with 18000 miles on the odometer. The issue I have is the the gas pedal getting stuck under the carpet of the car (not the removable floor mat, but the car actual carpet). When this happens the gas pedal is stuck to the floor, where I then am forced to turn off the car at speeds of 70 -80 miles an hour, extremely dangerous.
