2010 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 152009

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 300 miles


I financed my car brand new Oct 31, 2009, a week later I took it in to dealer because there was rust covering the whole under side. Ford sent me away & said this was normal. Around Dec 2009 there was a loud noise & felt like the engine had literally dropped to the ground. Never happened again. The gas also sometimes pauses to accelerate & suddenly jumps forward skipping a gear & jerks the car. Passenger airbag panel is partially open & when I push on it, I hear crinkling & it pops back open. The easy fill gas feature allows gas to leak out causing a ring of gas to form below the opening on the exterior panel. I'm so unhappy with these issues I'm here for help.

Braking for traffic signal engine created clunking then whistling noise. It seemed and felt like the engine had fallen onto payment. Taking foot off brake the 2010 Mustang accelerated on its own. Drove home parked called Ford and also reported that airbag light passenger airbag light always on. Ford towed to nearby dealer, mechanic drove 8 miles could not verify nor duplicate events.
