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.

2012 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


Noticed while washing my car that the paint on my 2012 Mustang was blistered on the hood. Searched the internet to see if there was a recall or other people that experienced the same thing and to my dismay found that there is an issue with paint blistering and aluminum corrosion on the Mustangs. I have 45,000 miles on my car and have surpassed the bumper to bumper warranty. I talked to a local dealer and asked if this is considered under the corrosion warranty and he said the car has to be eaten clear through before they consider under that part of the warranty. Understand that there was a technical service bulletin that Ford sent to their dealers detailing the aluminum corrosion & paint blistering problem and how to service it. Ford needs to step up to the plate and take care of their customers.
