The contact owns a 2008 Ford Mustang. The contact heard a clicking noise in the rear passenger side axle. The noise occurs while driving at low speeds and increases when driving on inclines. He took the vehicle to the dealer for repair at least three times, but they could not locate the cause of the failure. On the third visit, the dealer discovered that the shaft and rear axle failed. The dealer kept the vehicle for four days in order to make the repairs. The vehicle operated normally for two months after the repairs, but currently the failure has returned. The contact is taking the vehicle back to the dealer on May 16, 2008 for inspection. The failure mileage was 4,527. Updated 06/02/08 updated 06/02/08
