2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #4

  • 13,704 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Ford Mustang. While driving approximately 55 mph, the windshield wipers, headlights and heater would not operate when activated. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated an accumulation of water leaked onto the passenger floor through the windshield lower seam. The water leakage resulted to a shortage in the smart junction box which contributed to the malfunction. The technician resealed the windshield area. The problem recurred and had not been repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 13,704.

All I was doing was cleaning out my car and then got in then all of a sudden the rear window shattered. It sounded like a gun shot but I thought it was my tire. I inspected my tires then saw my windshield. I investigated the windshield and saw no holes or anything at all. The temperature was the same as always and the windows were down.

1. trunk too high; back windows slope blind driver from street light reflection. 2. hood and windshield designed deny driver from seeing the curves coming on side angles. (causing vehicle ending up on curve) 3. ABS auto activate when vehicle going over pothole, causing slipping and driver cannot control the braking distance. 4. ac/heat fan auto activate without consent even when sitting on off. I have a V6, 2006 Mustang. The safety issue that I have is the fact that the design of the vehicle that jeopardizing the children under 3 feet tall.: their trunk are too high and the slanted mirror block visibility. At night time backing out is very hard and there are many blind spots. I have backed up into another car already due to the poor visibility and light reflection: Back window design with an angle that blind drivers when night light hits. The owner and I settled in cash. The front hood of the vehicle center line formed an upside down V-shape whereas it highest peak is in the middle and at night time driving it has limited my viewing ability: Ended up on two curve, because the ceiling height were too low.

2005/06/07 rear window glass distortion and front windshield left & right bottom corner distortion claimed by Ford field service engineer, paul berardi to be within Ford design spec's. sitting in the drivers seat looking out left or right front windshield attention is drawn to the "waving" white lines on highway causing distraction of attention. The most serious distraction occurs at night with approaching/following headlights reflected through the rear window distortion into the rear view mirror "flashing". how many accidents have these cars been involved in at night" how many of the drivers reported seeing "flashing" headlights in their rear view mirror? how many insurance companies or police reports recorded such a claim"
