Good Luck, I have the same issues with my 2006. Plus many others. The car has been in the shop for over 50 days since I bought it last October. I tried the lemon law stuff, but it just went to arbitration and all I got was a little better warranty. For a car that I was so excited when I bought it, I hate it with a passion. I pray everyday that I go down the road that something catastrphic happens to it. I have been to 3 different dealerships, local area managers, district service managers and heaven only knows how many FORD CUSTOMER I DONT CARE PEOPLE.
Such a pretty car and such a freaking LEMON!

My 2005 Mustang V6 coupe (automatic) has been having transmission problems since the day I bought it last May. It intermittently will not engage into drive, and sometimes slips out of gear while I am driving, acting as if in neutral. (the car will rev up, but goes no where) It is an intermittent problem, so the mechanics at dealerships have not been able to have the car act this way for them. I currently have a "flight simulator" in my car to record computer codes from the car when it does this. I'm running out of warranty miles, so I'm getting worried, What have you figured out with your Stang?

Well, you should have the car back by now. Did they replace the clutch pack? If the noise comes back can you let me know? Mine went in yesterday to a large volume dealership that had a rearend specialist. That specialist says that he hasnt had any returned vehicles after rerpair but we'll see. By the way my dealership in town that was working on my car in the past will not touch my car, can a dealership do that?

how many miles do you have on your car? Im just wondering. And when was your car made? mine is an 06 but the sticker inside the driver side door said it was made in nov of 05. Im just trying to compare vehicles made at a certain time and relate them to all the problems

I have "Sally" back. The noise is gone. I have no Diff wine. I can tell you more at the end of Sept. when she goes on a 1200 mile trip. FYI- I talked to a very knowledgeable person about the problem and was told that there are many different clutch packs that can be installed to match the type of driving being done. Bottom line the pack installed was too tight for making a lot of turns (not good). I don't think a dealer can refuse to work on a Ford product that is under warenty. I would write Ford about the issue. However, if it were me I would not go back to the dealer.

My '06 was built in January '06. Have just over 5k miles. Still running like a charm (as it should be).
