Complete Loss Of Traction – Spin Out At 30mph While Other Cars Passed Me By Normally. Felt Like The Rear End Just Could Not Stay On The Road. Crawled 100 Miles To The Airport At 30-35mph With Constant Loss Of Traction Most Of The Way On A Moist Highway. Car Kept Wanting To Turn Sideways. Tires Looked Good And Still Do. Tried Shutting The Trac On/off, No Change Either Way. Could Not Keep The Car Straight On The Highway As The Rear End Kept Sliding All Over The Place. I Feel Like The Traction Control Was Locked In Either The On Or Off Position Or, The Emergency Brake Was On. Scary. This Happened In Southern Oregon, Car Was Purchased In Souther California. Dealer In Or Won’t Look At, Since I Can’t Reproduce Effect.

As An Overweight 6’9″ Citizen And Phd Scientist, I Would Like To Know What Safety Tests Are Done For People That Deviate From A Normal Size And Weight. I Understand That Safety Tests Are Done For Children, But What About People That Are Very Tall, Or As It Is An Increasing Problem In The Us, People That Are Very Obese? My seat Belt Touches My Neck Rather Than Going Over My Shoulder, Potentially Exposing Me To Neck Injuries. The Passenger Airbags Will Impact My Knees Rather Than My Body, And There Is No Neck Support From My Headrest. I Am Quite Concerned That I Could Be Severely Injured In An Accident Since Vehicles Are Not Properly Tested To Support Tall And/or Overweight Individuals. Presumably The Nhtsa And Ntsb Could Be Held Liable For A Lack Of Such Testing Were Someone Injured In An Accident. Even Neglecting Safety Information, Someone Who Is 6’9″ Such As Myself Will Not Fit Into Most Vehicles, And Only Some Vehicles With Ample Leg/head Room Are Safe For Me To Drive Comfortably. *tr

2003 Ford MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE Seat Belts Rear problems & defects.

When The Rear seat Belt Retracts, And It Has A Twist In The Belt Material (webbing), The Retracting Mechanism Will Lock Preventing The Belt From Being Pulled Back Out. This Lock Is Similar To The Locking Which The Retractor Does, As It Is Designed To Do, During Rapid Deceleration. The Belt (webbing) “guide” Allows The Belt To Retract With One Or More Twists In The Webbing Just As Easily As It Does When There Is No Twists. In Other Words, The “guide” Doesn’t Prevent The Belt From Retracting When There Is A Twist In The Webbing, And Thus Doesn’t Prevent The Retractor Lock Up Problem. The Retractor Locks With The Belt In The Fully Retracted Position (the Webbing Is Fully Wound Up Into The Retractor). When This Happens, This Problem Makes The seat Belt Unavailable For Usage By The Passenger (child) In That seat Position. This Leaves This Passenger (child) With No seat Belt To Use, And Of Course, Now Leaves Them Vulnerable For Serious Injury If There Is An Accident. This Is Not A Unit Failure, But An Unfortunate Side Effect Of The (poor) Design. Sometimes You Can “tease” The Retracting Mechanism Into Releasing The Lock. However, Many Times You Need To Disassemble The Mechanism To Release The Lock. Again, This Makes The seat Belt Unavailable For Usage Until Such Time That The Disassembly Can Be Scheduled And Completed. In Other Words, Until The Unit Can Be Repaired. seat Belts Should Always Be Available For Usage. Anything Other Than 100% Availability For A seat Belt Is Unacceptable.

I Purchased A 2003 Cobra From Prestige ford In Edmond, Ok. I Went To The Dealership Regarding A Brake Light That Continued To Light Up On The Dash. I Also Complained About The Clear Coat On The Front Passenger Wheel. I Was Told To Bring The Car Back When There Was Somebody With Authority Available To Talk To. I Took The Car Home And Discovered A Leaking Brake Caliper. The Dealership Knew The Caliper Was Leaking Because It Was Sitting On The Showroom Floor. Their Attempt To Correct The Problem Was To Install Another Washer (not The Correct One) On The Caliper And Over-torque The Bolt To The Point The Threads Were Galled. I Removed The Incorrect Retaining Bolt And Washer, Purchased The Correct Ones, Along With A New Caliper. I Checked The Torque On The Other Three Bolts And They Were To Factory Specs. To Discover That Prestige ford Sold Me A $41,000 Vehicle That Leaves The Factory Capable Of 150+ Mph, With A Serious And Dangerous Brake Problem Infuriates Me.*ak

I Purchased A Brand New 2003 ford Mustang Cobra Convertible In Placentia, Ca And Was Very Excited To Have My First Mustang. I Am 32 And Married With Two Children Ages 13 And 5 So Our Other Car Is A Minivan. In The End, As You Will See In This Description, This Was The Worst Purchase I Have Ever Made In Regards To A Vehicle. After Around 7,000-9,000 Miles ( I Would Have To Pull The Paperwork As I Am At Work Now) The Car Over-heated On The Freeway And During The Overheating The Car Shut Down Forcing Me To Lose Power Steering And The Car Began To Drift Left In To The Other Lane. I Pumped The Clutch Several Times And Successfully Was Able To Get The Car Running Just Far Enough To Pull Over To The Shoulder And Call A Tow Truck. It Could Have Been A Lot Worse Since Traffic Was Moving Around 65-70 Mph. The Car Was Sent To Fritts ford In Riverside, Ca And I Found Out That Not Only Was The Radiator Cap Cracked As Well As The Radiator But The Catalytic Converter (i Know My Spelling Is Wrong Here) Needed To Be Replaced For Some Reason. I Believe They Said It Had A Hole In It Which I Can’t Believe After Only 7k-9k Miles. I Also Believe They Replaced The Thermostat. It Was Too Long After I Received The Car Back (about 3k-5k Miles) That The Overheating Happened Again, The engine Shut Down, Etc And I Was Forced To The Side Of The Road And Again Luckily Was Not Hit By Another Car. The Car Was Back At The Dealer And The Radiator And Thermostat Were Replaced I Believe. Since Then I Have Moved To Texas And The Same Thing Has Occurred Three Times In The Last 3 Months. Each Time (well The First Two Since The Last One Just Happened Last Night) I Was Told The Thermostat Was Bad And Needed To Be Replaced. I Guarantee Now That The Car Is At Bob Tomes ford In Mckinney Texas For The 3rd Time With Only 22,000 Total Miles That The Thermostat Was Bad Again And Needed To Be Replaced. *nm
