#1020 of 2124 What is a "Transmission Speedo Cable"
Jan 12, 2004 (8:55 am)
I have a 2002 Mustang GT, 5 speed manual, convertible, 17,500 miles.
I took it in for an oil change at one of the 20 minutes places on Saturday. I was told to have my dealer look at the "transmission speedo cable". What is this? Around Tuesday/Wednesday of last week, I did start smelling something "burning" whenever I got out of the car.
I have an appointment for Wednesday at the dealer. I bought this car in September at a CarMax dealership and my 3 month/3,000 warranty is up, but I'm hoping this is covered under the Ford 36,000 miles warranty coverage.
Anyone's input would be greatly appreciate.

I bought a 2002 V6 premium convertible. Although I dearly love the car and it gets mega-looks, it probably was back to the dealer 3 times within the first year for problems. It is babied and has less than 9k miles. I love the nostalgic new design (2005) and would purchase one, but not in the first year production since it is totally new all the way around. I hope the new Mustang can earn a new reputation for holding up.

Agree with rev, scroll to the other board, you will get more responses to your questions. Also, just for an idea, get a quote from an insurance company (if you will be on your parents policy) ask them to get you a general estimate. That's all you can really do for now until you see the actual car you want to buy, then get the vin# run it and you will know for sure. You will have a very high bill at first though, no matter what.

Expect for you at the very least being generous about $1,000 dollars a year. Probably more like $2,000 for you or more even if you have the safety ed driver's course in school. Cheaper of course if you are looking at liability only but don't think so.

If you can log onto edmunds, you can go log into Geico. Seriously, they will give you a FREE quote that is going to be a much more accurate portrayal of your insurance costs than any of us can project here. Don't stop there either, there are many insurance companies now that will give you a free quote online. Shop around and see how good of a price you can get.
By my guess $1,000 for full coverage is a pipe dream if you are going to have your own policy that is not attached to your parents/gaurdians in any way. I paid $1,200 a year 10 years ago for an 87 Ford Ranger with nothing but the absolute minimum coverage allowed by law (no collision, no theft). If you are getting a 98-99 Mustang you are going to want full coverage since the car is actually worth something.
If you are added to your parents policy then it will be much cheaper, but I don't know how much. If not, I would anticipate really high costs and would start considering other car options.
