#1270 of 1524 WOW! Vibrations are everywhere.
May 30, 2006 (5:30 pm)
I am surprised that the 05 & 06 Mustangs all have vibrations. I own a 2001 Mustang GT and a 2002 V6 Mustang and I never had any vibration problems. Ford needs to get the bugs out of the new Mustang. It's been over 2 years now since the new 05 body style came out and Ford STILL hasn't worked out the bugs on these cars. I would never buy a 05 & an 06 Mustang with all these problems that they have. I am lucky to own the older body style which has been problem free to me.
The new Mustangs are 's.

I have read the latest posts with interest becuause my '06 GT runs like a bandit and so, so smooth......I have replaced the exhaust with a Magnaflow w/ MagnaPack Cat Back system and the air filter with a C&L TrueFlow Cold Air system. Ran smooth (no vibrations)prior to the changes as well......I'm purely satisfied with mine...

OK, I bought a 05 a couple of weeks ago and I have the "unknown source" dash rattle too! Of course the rattle disappeared when the dealer looked at it, so it's up to me to find it and fix it. Have you had any luck with wedging the paper between the dash and the A-pillar?

I found this reply on another site:
"Well I got my car back from the dealer ship a few hours ago. I had taken it in cause the brakes started to make noise again. I had it there for the same problem before, they turned the rotors and it went away for a little now its back[:] So I went back and they did the 05-10-10 TSB.
I also asked them to check the rattling that I hear when driving on certain roads in the passenger compartment (like the air bag was loose I told them basically) They said this...
Oasis#311 173 734
Road test-verify concern-perform niose diagnosis-traced noise to far right area-r+r 'A' Pillar trim for access- Isolate rattling dash sections with foam tape-road test and isolate sections until noise gone- road test & verify noise gone.
I didn't hear any rattling on the road that I hear it on all the time.
The tranny rattle that I heard when the car would start up after sitting happen to be a tsb I never heard of...
Ran SSMS - Install clamps to noisy ehaust hangers as per TSB # 06-04-01
We'll see how that goes in the morning before work. It usually would rattle a little bit in the morning for a second or two.
Just wanted to let you guys know cause I remember some others having Dash rattles and so called tranny rattles. Get em check up, get the 05's to par lol"
Hope this helps...

This is a "problems" board, of course you are going to hear about a few problems owners may have. Think about all the 05 and 06 Mustang owners (such as myself) that have no problems at all. To say that the new Mustangs are 's is just plain ignorant.
Oh yeah, the body styling on the '06 is much sweeter in my opinion than an '01 and '02... much sweeter.

I was one of the first to get an '05 Mustang GT when it first came out. Owned it for 9 months. Only sold it because I was offered more than I paid for it.
Whithin the first month of ownership, I went to a "Mustang Meet" in my 'burg.
There was a lady there who had just bought her GT, too. She was upset with all the "noise" it made. She said she had taken it back to the dealer several times and was planning to try "Lemon Law" procedures.
When I asked her what the issue was, she said the exhaust wasn't right and that it vibrated. I asked her to fire it up. When she did, all I heard was the beautiful exhaust note. When she reved it a bit and put it in drive, the tires would, indeed, "chirp" (the cause of her vibration).
I told her that everything was normal. She still didn't believe me. When I asked her what kind of car she had previous to the Mustang GT, she said she had a Toyota Solara.
Yeah....they are both coupes, but that's about the only thing that was similar about them.
I guess it's all about expectations and knowing what you have.

I tried to move the damper to many locations and even removed it, the vibration was still there. Yesterday, I fell that the car had vibration at all speeds. It was strongest between 60 and 70 mph. I will go to the dealer tomorrow. I will post when I have something new.

Two weeks ago, my car ran smoothly. The vibration has happened just 2 weeks.

I have this exact same problem with my 2005 V6, I had the car back to the dealer twice (they installed the damper to no avail) then I complained to Ford's corporate e-mail.
This is Ford's reply to me, they are saying that this
and the rattly front end are normal for the car. I too
suspect the transmission or driveshaft. I think they
need to fire some engineers.

Oh! No. Tomorrow, if the dealer tells me it is normal, I have no choice but get rid of the car right away. I get my title ready to trade it in tomorrow for a Toyota and never by any Ford car.
