2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 232010

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 7,500 miles


I have a 2006 Mustang with only 7500 miles on it and I have owned it now for about two weeks. Today I was driving on a residential street and the engine just turned off. I pulled the car over to the side and turned the car back on and it was fine. I drove home with no issues. I was almost on the interstate when this happened and it could have been very dangerous. If you complete a google search on 2006-2009 Mustangs, this issue seems to be listed several times. When the engine shut off, I checked all the fluids in the car and they were all fine. It did not sound like their was an issue with the engine; this seems more like a glitch in the system, something that Ford should recall and fix. Because the engine was turned off, the steering was hard to control, if I was going at a faster speed, I may not have been able to pull the car over to the side of the interstate. This could have created a serious accident.

problem #1

Dec 182006

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles
Have had this car in the shop two times previously. One because the fuel pump was bad, the second because there was a throttle variance and a variance in the transmission and the wrench came on in the vehicle then disappeared. This was checked and supposedly nothing was wrong with the car, because the wrench light was off and never came back on. On Saturday Dec. 16, 2006 there was another transmission variance and throttle variance with the car. Today, Monday Dec. 18, 2006 on my way to work, the engine light flashed on and off then disappeared.
