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.

2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #7

  • 83,000 miles


While driving the pan hard bar broke causing the vehicle to wobble back and forth uncontrollably. I was making a right hand turn at a light I was previously stopped at. I heard a noise as if I had ran over something and after completing the turn my car sounded as if it had a flat. I pulled over and inspected the tire and saw nothing. Attempting to drive over 10mph resulted in intense wobbling and unable to control vehicle. If at a high rate of speed this could have resulted in a crash. Researched online and multiple others had same incident with unknown reasons the bar breaks causing loss of control.this bar holds between rear wheels so vehicle will stay straight. I am just thankful I was at a slow speed and not driving on a freeway or higher rate of speed that could have resulted in losing my life or someone else's not having control of back portion of my vehicle. Even having it towed the tow operator said it wasn't even stable on back of his truck.

Starting at approx. 50mph I experience a shimmy in the steering wheel, most of the time. From time to time it will not shimmy when I reach the 50mph but as soon as I stop and start again the shimmy returns. I took it back to the dealer and all they did was balance the tires and did not make a difference. So I have had the car aligned, tires/rims force road balanced, new rotors, brake pads, bearings checked and still have the same shimmy. Dealer will not help and I nor anyone else knows what to try next.

After vehicle spent nearly two months in the shop due to ball joint assembly failure the car was put back into my possession. I drove the car from the dealer that it was purchased from to home, approximately 300 miles. I noticed a rubbing noise still coming from the front end of the vehicle. After 1 day of the car being in my possession I heard a rattling sound coming from the rear end of the car. Mostly going over small bumps at low speeds. Needless to say I have had the vehicle for 5 months and I have spent more time driving my 2001 escort than I have my 2006 GT. Sad but true the escort nearly $20,000 less than the GT is safer and more reliable than my brand new off the line vehicle has been.
