#1390 of 1524 2005 Mustang Lemon Lawsuit
Aug 11, 2006 (8:31 am)
I purchased a lemon '05 Mustang V6 and currently have a lawsuit against Ford Motor Company, Beau Townsend Ford in Vandalia Ohio and my financial institution in which the loan is through. First off, the dealership charged me for one vehicle and gave me another. I paid $7k more for a car I didn't even get. Secondly the car is JUNK. It's sad to see this american icon be unionized into a pile of crap. I've had the gas tank replaced, the fuel sending units twice, the radio replaced and the best of all,,,, it stalls! It does this so sporadically that it is hard to prove but thankfully (as crazy as this sounds) my new mustang's check engine light came on after the last stall. Let me just tell you this by dealing with Ford for over 1 1/2 years in this nightmare..... FORD DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ITS CUSTOMERS OR THEIR SAFETY OR THEIR CHILDRENS SAFETY!!! My attorney has told me horror stories of Ford and I am living in one myself. After meeting with Ford's attorneys, they simply want to know 1 thing... HOW MUCH WILL IT COST US TO SEND YOU AWAY? Not, wow, let us refund your money and you can still have confidence in our product to buy another ford product... if you experience any problems with your mustang.... SUE THE CRAP OUT OF THEM BECAUSE THEY KNOW ABOUT THESE PROBLEMS YET STILL SELL THEM TO THE UNKNOWING PEOPLE WHO TRUST IN THEIR PRODUCT. And they wonder why people are switching to foreign cars... my 2 cents

sorry to hear about these problems. Seems like the v6 has more serious problems than the v8s. I have an '06 GT and couldn't be happier (knock on wood).
Keep pushing (and suing) until you get some justice.

i have an 06 V6 and dont have problems.
unfortunately, the 2005 first year model had problems.
That's why i never buy first year new models.
I hope you get your situation resolved.

"First off, the dealership charged me for one vehicle and gave me another. I paid $7k more for a car I didn't even get."
First, how does a dealership overcharge you by $7k?
Second, how did you let that get by you?
Third, I don't suppose this had any impact on your desire to have your money refunded?

We have been dealing with this problem since October. As of this Tuesday Ford stated they would buy back the car. I am waiting to hear what this means. I have contacted Sales Mangager, Service Manager, and Customer Service Rep and waiting for an answer. I have also emailed Ford. Does any one know how this works?

#1399 of 1524 Nothing wrong with my GT
Aug 14, 2006 (6:03 pm)
Almost a year now, since I bought my loaded GT Premium w/ manual. Still get the same kick as the first time. No problems.
Pony's are sprouting up everywhere, but GT's remain relatively rare, esp. w/ manual (why would anyone get an auto trans, unless female?). See a lot of 18" wheels, round spokes, (I have the 17" solid aluminum wheels), and too many add-on chrome wheels, as if the ignorant couldn't leave well enough alone.
I honestly believe this is most car money can buy, so ... uh ... stop your belly-aching. If you can't stand the heat, don't go into the kitchen. If you can't handle 300 HP w/ a manual, get a Honda.
