Sorry to hear about other people having same problem bought this car as a gift, now I'm stuck with it. Don't seem to get any satisfaction from ford or dealer, don't let them embarrass you keep on them and let them know there are other people out there with the same problem. I'm calling my dealership tomorrow and share this new information that they have a reaccuring problem with v6 mustang transmissions.Keep in mind the transmission warranty is for 5 years or 60000 miles.

I bought a 2000 GT convertable 5 speed new in 2000, put 55,000 miles on it and then it got totaled in 2004. Replaced it with a 2002 GT convertable 5 speed, 2 years old with 14,000 miles on it, the car was even the exact same color as my first one! Now have 90,000 on that car. Daily driver, totally stock, driven moderate to occasional aggressive but not raced, for both cars. I live in the mountains of NH so the cars do get to "play" on twistie roads a lot.
Both cars have the cold upshift into second resistance/clunk/slight gear grind. Both get much better when warmed up. Both have sort of clunky feeling shifters (that feel much crisper after driving my manual shift Jeep, it is all relative) and both developed noisy throughout bearings after about 30,000 miles. The bearing still works ok, just makes a low volume high pitched whining noise when the clutch is in use. Unless the bearing quits completely, I will just wait for the clutch to wear out and replace it all at once.
The car is fun, good driver, just a pain to shift into second until the transmissions gets some heat into it. It has never been enough of a problem to do anything about it, so it is still just as it left the factory. That was true for the first trannie when that car got wrecked, also. Sounds like I got the mild version of our problem trannies, but did get the problem.

I just bought a used '06 V6 auto with 30,000 miles on it last week. When test driving it there were no problems. However, today when I was driving it on the expressway going about 70-75 mph I noticed a clunking noise coming from the car. After reading a lot of posts where people seemed to have similar problems I wanted to ask if anyone thinks it might be a transmission related issue? Has anyone had a similar issue, or know what might be causing this?
It seemed like if I put my foot on the gas to accelerate (even gently) the noise would stop, however if I was coasting (when I take my foot off the gas or hold a constant speed between 70 and 75mph) it would make this rattling/clunking noise.
According to the carfax for the car, the transmission was just replaced at 28k miles, so thats why I really wonder if a brand new transmission would have problems.
Also, another question I wanted to ask all you Mustang owners is, when you start the car does the engine kind of shake or rumble? Is this normal? Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this; this is my first sports car/Mustang so I don't really know much yet.

I just bought this car new June 2009. Three days later I notice a clunking sound when shifting at low RPM from 1st to 2nd. I drove a Honda Prelude for 13 years and never heard a cluncking sound with my manual.
First Ford told me they didn't hear it. Today they said they heard it and it is normal due to shifting at low RPM. They purposely put play in there otherwise the rear end would rear out prematurely. It's due to shifting at low RPM.
I just hopped on this site tonight and read a few posts. Is there an auto mechanic out there that can tell me if this crap? Sorry, but I haven't read a lot of posts.
I'm going back next week (I haven't even had this car for a month) and test drive another "new" one on their lot and see how it sounds.

it sure seems like edmonds would forward all these issues to ford so they can do a recall on these cars.. my 06 v6 5 speed manual convertible is now almost 2 years old and i still have clunking at low rpms.. and ive brought it in several times. ive heard it all.. including i just dont know how to drive a 5 speed.. im 41 and almost all of my 17 cars new and used were 5 speeds.. then they said all 5 speeds sound like that but i had seepage of sound into the cab of the car so they changed a boot to keep the sound out of the car.. believe me ive had enough and that was the first and last time i buy a car without test driving.. i ordered the car from another state to get the one i want.. i should have stuck with a lincoln, tammy

Did you have that clunking sound when it was new or did it show up later?
