#15 of 151 2007 v6 manual transmission
Oct 01, 2007 (1:52 pm)
i have a 2007 v6 mustang with a manual trans. at just over 16,000 miles third gear shattered. i was pulling out into traffic and when i put it into 3rd gear i heard a loud pop and third was gone. i took it to anderson ford in cleveland tx. and ford denied the warranty claim. they said that the car had been abused.i do not race the car. if i was going to do that i would have gotten the gt instead of the v6. no one will help me get in touch with any one from ford that can help me. so now i am trying to let everyone know about how ford treats its consumers. i plan on going public and costing ford more money and dissatifaction than they have caused me. if anyone else has had transmission problems, please let me know. thank you.

What was their basis for claiming abuse? They had to have a reason.

Your best bet is talk with someone at Ford, preferably in the engineering dept. Don't know whether you'd have any luck via phone but they likely will respond to a letter.

You need to see another dealer.

I can hear the gears on my car, kind of a whining noise. Keep in mind that this is a car with a truck transmission and a truck engine. Its not going to remind you of the cars that you had.
1st and 2nd are double syncroed. The wet clutch is hevy duty. The Mustang is not a tame pony.

Either see another dealer or go straight to the owner of the dealership first. I don't understand why dealers don't want to do warranty work. I'm sure Ford Motor Company pays them for it so what's the problem? I have an 07 GT with 5 speed manual and it makes no noise at all. I don't like the way it feels when shifting from 1st to 2nd but it's just the feel, nothing serious to my mind. I'm very happy with the car in spite of the fact that Mustangs seem overpriced to me.

how you all doing? Just bought this awesome brand new 2007 v6 4.0 mustang convertible about 3 weeks ago. I got it as a left over at a dealership here in NY. It had only 70 miles on it when I bought it. To make a long story short, I hear a rattling sound when the car is in neutral. The sound goes away when the clutch is pressed to the floor. Car seems very loud and noisy, like a deisel. I brought it into the dealership and they said itís normal. Is it normal or is it the throw-out bearing acting up?
Also, while shifting from 1st to 2nd I hear a clinging, metal banging like sound. The dealer said itís also normal. Is that true? It seems kind of weird that this car should be making so much noise during shifting and its brand NEW!!!. My friends Mazda doesnít make a sound during shifting.
Is anybody else experiencing these problems?
Thanks for your help
