2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #5

Dec 182011

Mustang 8-cyl

  • 45,755 miles


Living in boston on December 18th I went out to my 2006 Mustang GT 4.6 liter it was parked and I engaged the car to start. The parking brake was not working correctly was very loose. And it is never like that. Brakes feel stiff in back feels like a toughing, ,,I was on a small embankment in neutral and car did not roll back at all. My guess it parking handle spring is off track or some spring this a problem in cold weather..never had this happen before.

Previously filed complaint ODI# 10319368. Parking brake will not disengage, passenger side rear brakes and rotor had to be replaced at the tune of $200. That was 4 weeks ago and it is happening again. Google 2006 Mustang defects and this seems to be a common issue due to a faulty rubber boot. I bought the car used from a Ford dealer (it had 4000 miles on it and less than a year old. Most places want to charge several hundred dollars to replace. Vehicle has 31,000 miles, this is crap!

After the unusually cold weather my rear brakes are not working as well as they were before. The brake pads have been replace 3 months prior. The emergency brake is now loose. Now that the temperature is warmer, the emergency brake lever is still loose and it still feels like I am only braking with my front brakes. I have not had this repair yet because I cant afford it at the moment.

problem #2

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
Starting at approx. 50mph I experience a shimmy in the steering wheel, most of the time. From time to time it will not shimmy when I reach the 50mph but as soon as I stop and start again the shimmy returns. I took it back to the dealer and all they did was balance the tires and did not make a difference. So I have had the car aligned, tires/rims force road balanced, new rotors, brake pads, bearings checked and still have the same shimmy. Dealer will not help and I nor anyone else knows what to try next.

: the contact stated the brakes have not stopped the vehicle on three separate occasions. This occurred at no particular speed and with no warning. The dealership was unable to determine a problem.
