I was on interstate 59 North. I pressed the brakes, they were locked up. Car began to accelerate on its own. Neither would function. Before attempting to engage the emergency brake, I put the car into neutral, attempting to slow it and distance myself from any traffic that was nearby. Once I put it in neutral, it began to slow, accelerator and brakes unlocked, allowing me to come to a stop on the side of the road. Called Ford, they've towed it to a local dealership. I've read sooooo many reports online, but Ford is giving excuses and blaming it on customers. This is deadly and someone is going to die as a result of it! please help!!!!!!!!

I had just made the final payment on the vehicle, when the ABS anti-skid lights came on. A local mechanic tested it, and said that the problems were: A dynamic stability control valve right front circuit failure and an ABS unit malfunction. The total costs for the two parts were more than $1,100.

While driving low brake fluid warning light came on. Sam pack Ford of lewisville fixed the problem by tightening the bolt and bleeding brakes and checking operation. Other Mustang owners may need to have their brake lines checked to make sure they don't leak.
