The contact owns a 2013 Ford Mustang. While driving approximately 50 mph, the vehicle decelerated and the wrench icon illuminated. The vehicle was pulled over and towed to an independent mechanic who was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer where it was diagnosed and the electronic throttle body was replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that the repair cost would be refunded if the failure resulted in a recall. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 49,700...updated 01/04/17

Vehicle lost power while driving, engine wrench light came on, made rattling noise but still idling. After full shutdown and restart, engine appeared to work fine. Dealer determined throttle body defective, similar to other Ford vehicle throttle body issues which had recent recalls and warranty extensions, however this particular model and year is not covered. $1250 repair bill.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 3,210 miles
Incident: While waiting in the left turn lane for the left turn light to turn green I had my foot on the brake. I was behind another left turning vehicle. When the light changed I took my foot off the brake so to apply pressure on the accelerator. However, before I put my foot on the accelerator the vehicle lunged forward. Fortunately, I was able to reapply brake and the car stopped. This took place on level ground on South bound highway 19 at henry St. In kona.
