The Vehicle Has Approximately 1000 Miles On The Odometer. In An Effort To Rectify Squealing Brakes, I Checked Each Lug Nut To Ensure They Were Tightened To Factory Specification. All Twenty (4 Wheels With 5 Lug Nuts Each) Were Only Tightened To Approximately 90ft-lbs Of Torque. ford Specifies In The Owners Manual That Lug Nuts Be Torqued To 150ft-lbs. I Used Two Different Styles Of Torque Wrench To Conduct My Test. One Type Was Used To Loosen Ten Lug Nuts And Another Was Used To Loosen The Remaining Ten. My Intent Was To Rule Out Any Gross Error In Torque Readings. To My Knowledge The Wheels Have Never Been Removed From The Vehicle, Therefore I See Three Possibilities: The Dealer Removed The Wheels For Some Reason And Did Not Torque To Specification Or The Lug Nuts Are Loosening Themselves Evenly Or They Were Not Torqued To Specification From The Factory. I Feel The Most Likely Scenario Is That They Were Not Torqued To Specification From The Factory.

Takata Recall I Been Dealing With A Electrical Problem With My Car And Its Brand New. Every Time I Get In The Car And Turn It On And Drive For About 5 Minutes My Music Turns Off And Shows The Horse Symbol Displayed On The Screen And It Comes Back On 10 Minutes Later. But Then Sometimes It Does That And Then The Display Screen Turns Black And I Can’t Turn On The Radio Or Anything. And That Last For A Few Hours Or So..

I Was Driving My 2016 mustang Gt Base Model Down A Straight Road With The Traction Control “on” And The Car Randomly Locked All Of The Wheels And Turned Sideways Into Oncoming Traffic And Only Stopping When I Hit A Curb. While Sliding There Was No Throttle Or Brake Control Because The Traction System Locked All Four Wheels. I Went To The ford Dealer Previous To This Instance To Complain That The Front Suspension Was Noisy And The Vehicle Was Hard To Control On Certain Road Surfaces And It Felt Very Unsafe. After Giving Them This Information They Scheduled Me For An Appointment A Week Later And Let Me Drive Off. Subsequent To Say, The Vehicle Totally Lost Control 3 Days Before The Appointment. Road Surface Was Dry, It Was Sunny 94 Degrees And I Was Traveling At 40mph On A Straight Road And My Vehicle Has 26k Miles. The Noise And Control Issue Was Miniscule But Existent On The Vehicle At 14k Miles And Only Kept Getting Worse. I Notified The Dealer Of The Possibility Of A Safety Issue Because Of The Circumstances And They Were Very Defensive And More Concerned About Charging Me For The Damages That Resulted From The Vehicle Malfunction. I Requested That The Computer Logs Be Preserved And Sent To ford As It May Be A Safety Issue And I Was Told That They Would Charge Me Extra For That And That It Would Be Quite Expensive As To Discourage Me From Reporting It. I Retained A Printout Of My Initial Complaint That Was Documented At The Dealer Upon My Initial Visit. Vehicle Is Currently Under Factory Warranty And Is Being Diagnosed For The Front Suspension Noise Issue.

My New 2016 mustang V6 Has Severe Vibration While Driving At Most Speeds. The Dealer Service Dept. Determined The Problem Was A Faulty Drive Shaft And Replaced It Twice And Indexed The Second One After Installation. The Car Still Vibrates. The Tires Were Road Forced Balanced And Rotated And The Vibration Is Still Happening. This Leads Me And Other Professionals To Conclude That There May Be Other Malfunctioning Parts Or A Possible Design Flaw In The Drive Line Which I Believe ford Motor Company Knows About. The Vibration Is Felt Through The Car And The Rear Mirror Image Is Blurred While Driving. A ford Customer Service Rep. Has Told Me This Vibration Is “normal” And “no Repair Is Needed”. They Refuse To Investigate The Cause Further Or Fix This Defect. I Wonder, If It Is Normal Why Did They Try To Fix It Twice. It Appears This Is A Common Problem With These Cars Or If They Were Designed So A Vibration Can Shake Your Body While Driving, As The Customer Service Rep Is Implying, Then The Consumer Should Be Made Aware Or Notified Of This Vibration Characteristic Before Purchasing. Note, That While The Service Dept. Was Attempting To Diagnose The Problem The Shop Foreman Told Me He Drove Four New Cars From Their Stock And Found 3 Of Them To Have This Vibration Defect. Now In My Vehicle It Appears That The Vibration Is Causing The Rear Axle Differential Seal To Start Leaking. I Would Like To Suggest That A Investigation Be Started Into This Matter To Determine The Extent Or Number Of Vehicles That Are Experiencing This Sensation. Regardless ford Motor Company Should Be Made To Fix These Defect On All Vehicles Affected Or Refund The Consumers The Purchased Price Of The Vehicle If They Cannot Fix It.

While Driving In Rush Hour Traffic On My Way To Work, I Attempted To Change Lanes, But The Car Stalled And Started Flashing The Message “see Manual”. Thankfully, I Was Able To Navigate At A Very Reduced Speed (more Like A Coast) Into A Gas Station Parking Lot. The Car Is Only Six (6) Months Old With A Little Over 8,000 Miles. I Had To Have It Towed Into The Dealership Where It Was Determined That A New Throttle Body Was Needed. I Am Very Disappointed In ford As I Learned That The Throttle Bodies Have Been Going Out For Years In Many Of The ford Models And Still The Same Problematic Throttle Bodies Are Being Installed Into New Vehicles. I Am Thankful That I Had Already Exited The Interstate When This Happened Because The Outcome Might Have Been Very Bad Had I Been Traveling At 70 Mph When This Occurred. ford Really Should Look Into Installing Better Throttle Bodies Onto Their Vehicles Before Someone Is Seriously Injured Or Even Killed.

Luckily, I Was In The Right Lane And Was Able To Coast Into A Parking Lot. The Dealership States That It’s The Throttle Body And Will Take At Least A Week To Get The Part In.

New Vehicle Less Than 500 Miles. Bad Vibration While Driving At Highway Speeds. The Vibration Starts At Around 60 Mph And Is Present All The Way Beyond 80 Mph. The Vibration Can Be Felt Inside The Vehicle And Also Through The Steering. ford Re-balanced The Tires And Also Replaced The Driveshaft, But Vibration Still Persists. From Other Sources In The Internet It Looks Like This Is A Problem Which Is Not Uncommon On mustangs And ford Seems To Refuse To Acknowledge The Issue. Since This Occurs At Highway Speeds And Seems To Be Coming In From The Drivetrain Makes This Issue Scary.

I Bought A New 2016 mustang In April. I Was Driving Uphill At 40 Mph. All Of The Sudden The Engine Cut Off. When The Engine Went Off A Large Wrench Came Up On The Display And It Said See Manual. I Tried Pressing The Start Button But It Would Not Start. I Had To Come To A Complete Stop, Put The Car In Park And Then Was Able To Restart It. This Could Easily Lead To Death! If This Would Happen On The Beltway Or I-95 I Could Get Killed. The Car Didn’t Overheat And All The Gauges Showed Normal.

Since I Have Purchased The Car With 300 Miles I Had To Take The Vehicle In Because The Transmission Was At Times, Hard To Shift, Would Grind A Gear. Locked Me Out Of A Gear, And In General Can Shake And Produce Loud Thumping Noises When Engaging Gears While Sitting At A Standstill Or Even While Driving Down The Road. I Was Told At The Time That This Was Normal Behavior. I Had Test Drove More Than One Car Before Purchasing This One. None Of The Others Behaved This Way. I Have Done More Research And Discovered That This Is A Very Intermittent Issue Between Builds Of The Transmission. I Took It In Again For Service. They Had Removed The Transmission And Serviced Some Parts. Upon Getting The Car Back It Almost Immediately Went Back To Doing The Same Thing. This Is Not A Big Safety Concern, But Could Cause Bigger And More Expensive Issues Down The Road Depending On What Is Happening To The Transmission. This Is One Of Four Complaints I Have With This Particular Vehicle That Have Not Been Resolved.

Lost Power In Insanely Busy Irving/dallas Intersection Near Major Highway – Could Have Been A Huge Accident! 5400 Plus Miles. ford 2016 mustang, V6 From A Standing Position, Second Car In Line At Red Light. Light Changes, Traffic Starts To Move, I Stepped On Gas And Nothing! Had To Creep Across Two Lanes Of Busy Traffic And Limp Up Onto A Sidewalk As That There Was No Breakdown Shoulder. Than God The Curb Was About 2 To 3 Inches High. Wrench Icon On Dash: “see Manual”. Turned Engine Off And Back On – Rpms Surged To The Red And Then Dropped To Below 1000. Tried The Off/on Thing About 3 Times – Same Results. Engine Was Chugging, Missing, Even Exhaust Was Chugging Like Some Old Jalopy! Checked The Electronic Gauge Readings – Everything Was Normal Except The Vacuum Pressure – It Was Between 5 And 0! After Several Calls To Dealership, ford Roadside Assist And Tow Company; Turned Car Off Again – 30 Seconds To A Minute Later, Restarted It – And It Was Running Perfect – Engine Light However Was On. Vacuum Level Was Running Between 17 And 20. Towed To Dealership; It’s A Week Now And I Have Just Learned From Them That It’s The Throttle Body. Was Told That “ford Had A Bad Batch Of These” On This Engine Size (v6). The Part Is On Back Order. The Dealership Service Rep Stated It’s Taken As Long As A “couple Of Months” But ford Is Getting Faster At Getting The Part Out, So It Could Be A Week To Two Weeks To Get It In. I Have Seen Reports Of This Same Issue On Carcomplaints.com For Explorers – From Jun 5th 2016 – Stating That ford Had 7000 Throttle Bodies On Back Order!

I Bought A New 2016 mustang In April. I Was Driving Uphill At 40 Mph. All Of The Sudden The Engine Cut Off. When The Engine Went Off A Large Wrench Came Up On The Display And It Said See Manual. I Tried Pressing The Start Button But It Would Not Start. I Had To Come To A Complete Stop, Put The Car In Park And Then Was Able To Restart It. This Could Easily Lead To Death! If This Would Happen On The Beltway Or I-95 I Could Get Killed. The Car Didn’t Overheat And All The Gauges Showed Normal.

It Has A Little Over 5000 Miles On It And It Is Using Oil Excessively. It Is Using A Quart Of Oil Every 600-900 Miles And Is Getting Worse. I Have Brought In To ford Twice. Both Times They Said I Would Need A New Engine. But, I Just Received A Call From Them Last Friday On 10-21-16 And They Said They Are Not Going To Be Putting A New Engine In The Car As They Fear The New Engine Will Do The Same Thing. They Said They “may Have A Fix Next Spring.” I Called ford Customer Service And Their Regional Rep Called Me Back. She Only Offered Me A Maintenance Plan For Free Oil Changes. This Is Worthless To Me And My Current Problem As It Doesn’t Need Oil Changes And Does Nothing To Address The Problem. Since They Admit They Have A Problem With The Engine And Have No Repair For It, I Asked Them To Buy The Car Back. They Refused.

Suddenly The Rpm’s Just Drop To Zero And I Would Have To Restart The Car Again By Hitting The Start Engine Button. This Had Happened Multiple Times In The Past Few Couple Of Months.

After About 8 Months Of Purchase Of This Vehicle The Backup Camera Began To Act Up. The Camera Would Occasionally Go To Static Or A Completely Black Screen. I Had Finally Managed To Have Taken A Video And Produced It For The Mechanic To See. They Said That They Could Not Recreate The Issue So They Had Blamed The Problem On The Heat. While I Agree It Is Hot In The State Of Arizona, This Is Something That Should Have Been Sorted Out During The Development Cycles Of The Vehicle And The Camera. Arizona The Last I Checked Is A Part Of The United States Where ford Exists As A Company And Road Tests Vehicles On Account Of The Heat. These Are Situations That Should Have Been Figured Out Already. You Are Not Expected To Rely On Backup Cameras, But In A Vehicle Like This It Is An Important Way Of Being Able To See Out The Back Of The Car And Is A Premium Item.

Lost Power In Insanely Busy Irving/dallas Intersection Near Major Highway – Could Have Been A Huge Accident! 5400 Plus Miles. ford 2016 mustang, V6 From A Standing Position, Second Car In Line At Red Light. Light Changes, Traffic Starts To Move, I Stepped On Gas And Nothing! Had To Creep Across Two Lanes Of Busy Traffic And Limp Up Onto A Sidewalk As That There Was No Breakdown Shoulder. Than God The Curb Was About 2 To 3 Inches High. Wrench Icon On Dash: “see Manual”. Turned Engine Off And Back On – Rpms Surged To The Red And Then Dropped To Below 1000. Tried The Off/on Thing About 3 Times – Same Results. Engine Was Chugging, Missing, Even Exhaust Was Chugging Like Some Old Jalopy! Checked The Electronic Gauge Readings – Everything Was Normal Except The Vacuum Pressure – It Was Between 5 And 0! After Several Calls To Dealership, ford Roadside Assist And Tow Company; Turned Car Off Again – 30 Seconds To A Minute Later, Restarted It – And It Was Running Perfect – Engine Light However Was On. Vacuum Level Was Running Between 17 And 20. Towed To Dealership; It’s A Week Now And I Have Just Learned From Them That It’s The Throttle Body. Was Told That “ford Had A Bad Batch Of These” On This Engine Size (v6). The Part Is On Back Order. The Dealership Service Rep Stated It’s Taken As Long As A “couple Of Months” But ford Is Getting Faster At Getting The Part Out, So It Could Be A Week To Two Weeks To Get It In. I Have Seen Reports Of This Same Issue On Carcomplaints.com For Explorers – From Jun 5th 2016 – Stating That ford Had 7000 Throttle Bodies On Back Order! This Is An Exceptionally Dangerous Situation With These Things Losing Power Like This On Highways And In Major Traffic. ford Needs To Issue A Recall On This Throttle Body!

While Driving In Rush Hour Traffic On My Way To Work, I Attempted To Change Lanes, But The Car Stalled And Started Flashing The Message “see Manual”. Thankfully, I Was Able To Navigate At A Very Reduced Speed (more Like A Coast) Into A Gas Station Parking Lot. The Car Is Only Six (6) Months Old With A Little Over 8,000 Miles. I Had To Have It Towed Into The Dealership Where It Was Determined That A New Throttle Body Was Needed. I Am Very Disappointed In ford As I Learned That The Throttle Bodies Have Been Going Out For Years In Many Of The ford Models And Still The Same Problematic Throttle Bodies Are Being Installed Into New vehicles. I Am Thankful That I Had Already Exited The Interstate When This Happened Because The Outcome Might Have Been Very Bad Had I Been Traveling At 70 Mph When This Occurred. ford Really Should Look Into Installing Better Throttle Bodies Onto Their vehicles Before Someone Is Seriously Injured Or Even Killed.
