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.

2004 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 292005

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact states the cruise control can be set by pressing the coast button, as well as the set button. The coast button is located on the steering wheel where the contact hand rests while driving. He found this after wife was in an accident. The vehicle would not slow down with her foot off of both the brake and accelerator pedals. The contact's vehicle rear ended another vehicle, and a police report was taken. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, once he found the cruise control activated, and this was how the vehicle was manufactured. Update 1/4/2006 -
