2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 062006

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37 miles


Took delivery of Mustang premium convertible (V6) on 1/6/2006. Drove home 17 miles. While accelerating from a full stop and turning onto side street, the engine appeared to accelerate and then stopped in the middle of the turn in the middle of oncoming traffic. Fortunately no accident occurred. During subsequent drives, engine appears to accelerate from a full stop but then stalls. If accelerator is pressed quickly enough, the engine does not stop; however, it may exhibit the stall a second time. Dealer indicates that no information is recorded on computer indicating reason for failure. They cannot duplicate the failure. Next step is to install a "black box" to record event activity during the stall. This does not occur when the engine is cold. It also is very intermittent but, if it is going to happen, it will be following a full stop. I do not feel safe in this vehicle. The failure can occur during a turn across traffic or while moving straight ahead from the stop - either of which could result in an accident.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

2006 Ford Mustang exhibiting hesitation upon acceleration on four different occasions while pulling out into traffic. Feels as if car has stalled then sling shots car into traffic. Each incident nearly resulting in accidents. Dealership can't duplicate problem and therefore can't make any repairs to car. No sensor errors or messages when checked, but obviously there is a malfunction with electronic &/or sensors from gas pedal to engine.
