Takata recall, my car's value is significantly reduced due to this defect and virtually unable to sell or trade in.

problem #4

Jul 012016


  • 75,000 miles
The catalytic converter on the driver's side of the exhaust pipe has cracked and must be replaced at a cost of almost $1400. It seems a part so expensive should last more than 75000 miles, which is approximately what the car has on it now. No one can tell me why it would have cracked, but a couple of muffler shops have told me that they have seen many Ford catalytic converters crack for no apparent reason. This would seem to be a manufacturing defect.

When there is rain the water pours into the passenger side front floor area. This has happened with my 2008 and 2005 Ford Mustangs. The dealer checked the seals and they were fine. Driving or stationary. Street and highway. Straight or turning. Unknown.

When it rains water comes in through the the back window and floods the inside of car. Causes mold and produces a very bad smell. I have sealed it but it keeps coming undone.

problem #1

  • 57,000 miles
My Mustang GT had a complete failure to the cars rear end after discovering a loud noise coming from the left rear at low and high speeds. There is no reason why a vehicle with 57000 road miles on it would have this type of a problem. This is a safety concern for anyone driving this year Mustang because it could very well create a terrible accident even death.
