2001 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #3

I have a 2001 Ford mustang. About 6 months ago, I noticed a small area that the clearcoat was peeling. Now it is coming off in sheets and my paint has faded that is looks like a completely different color. I've read numerous complaints on other message boards from others having the same issue. I even found a service bulletin that Ford issued instructing paint vendors how to correct the problem. I would think that if that many people are having this issue that Ford had to issue a bulletin of this sort, that there would be recall and Ford would be financially responsible. It is the right thing to do. Now, I have to pay for a paint job through no fault of my own.

Constant vibration in the dash area. Have had all 4 air vents replaced twice and the entire center console replaced do to raddling noises. To this date my dash still rattles in the vent areas.
