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.

2007 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #7

  • 33,900 miles


My wife and her friend were driving down a 2 lane road in our 2007 Ford Mustang and wrecked into a power poll totaling the car. The front frame was broke in half and the airbags still did not deploy luckily they were not injured bad Ford just told me that is the way they are designed to work. I thought that if in a frontal collision the airbags deploy.

I received a recall reminder regarding recall 08C02 in may of 2008 for # and I have never owned this car, so I contacted Ford customer service and they said they would forward to current owner. January 2009 I received an urgent recall notice 08C02 for same # from my local Ford dealership. I called the dealership and asked if they could help to get this notice to the correct owner, the dealership said they contacted Ford and then I was told there isn't anything Ford can do. I'm concerned that the current owner isn't aware of a safety issue for that car and nobody seems to care. I'm hoping you can help. Thank you

My son was involved in a car accident on July 20, 2008 in our 2007 Mustang, the airbags didn't deploy and the seat belt didn't properly restraint him. He hit the steering wheel, causing him to nearly kill him. He received a head laceration on his scalp his skull and tissue were showing having to be reattach his scalp with over 80 staples. He now suffers with headaches and the doctors told him he has to be carefully within the next year for fear of reopening the scalp incisions. I believe this is a product liability, you think airbags are going to prevent you from an accident like this and it fails. Ford Motor Company needs to know about this and prevent from someone getting killed.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Ford Mustang. While driving between 6- 10 mph, the contact rear ended another vehicle. The seat belt retractor failed and both air bags failed to deploy. The contact's head struck the windshield and the entire front end of the vehicle ended up in her lap. She sustained burns to her legs. A police report was filed. The local dealer stated that because the speed was low at the time of the crash, the air bags did not deploy and the seat belt retractor did not retract. The dealer further stated that this is how the vehicle was designed to perform and there was no failure. The failure and current mileages were 25,000.
