2005 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

My 2005 Mustang GT has had several problems since ownership. I purchased this car new and even had to order the details I wanted on the car. Since ownership, I have had the car into the service department on several occasions. There is a vibration that has been unable to be identified as of yet. Despite the service departments calls to Ford. Vibration is still present. The other problem is the fuel gauge drops to "E" and an error light comes on. Service dept. Was unable to detect problem until the service engine light remained on. Computer code said that the problem was in the sulfur in the fuel. Am to suppose to add an additive to fuel occasionally. Feel that this should be totally unnecessary since high-quality fuel is used and it is a new vehicle. Apparently a service bulletin came out stating this problem. The fuel tanks are the same in other vehicles but this is a Mustang problem"??? this problem should be fixed without any other costs to consumers. Also, not being able to fill fuel tax to maximum capacity. Was told that it must have had an "air bubble." The service department at Ford in grand junction Colorado is trying very hard to fix the problems but is getting no where with Ford. I have my car in more times then I can drive it. They have now had the car 4 days!!!! I then received a recall on an item on my 2006 Ford F150 king ranch. What is up Ford??" two new vehicles, too many problems.
