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.

2005 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 112005

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,500 miles


On October 11, 2005 while driving the vehicle hit a rock. Then, the rock hit the condenser and radiator, causing a leak. This caused the engine to overheat. The vehicle had lost power steering and the brakes. The contact was able to pull safely to the curb. The rock caused a small dent in the radiator. The contact was concerned because there was nothing protecting the radiator from damage. The contact took vehicle to dealer for repairs. The dealership said that the radiator and the motor will have to be replaced. The vehicle was going to be repaired.
