ford mustang conv. 1999 3.8 liter engine. reported engine problems/acceleration probs 3 times to dealerships ( one time to another dealership outside ford jurisdiction that noticed excessive gasket leakage) before 12,000 miles. finally, after not being able to find problem all dealership visits, finally replaced w/ refurbished engine demonstrating same problem at 31207 miles approximately. (please note- it appears as though dealership on two occasions tried to change the problems i notated to the dealership when i told the representative my complaints. gave me back invoice two times with modifications that were not original complaint! on the second time- tracked down the manager and complained directly and asked why the dealership had done this. he had no answer for this employees action.) the only difference with the new refurbished engine is that there is no burning smell and the engine unexpectedly vibrates so violently that the whole car shakes and gearshift vibrates to and fro violently- the initial acceleration complaint remains. the violent engine shaking does not happen all the time. this new engine has been installed only 3 days. transmission/ clutch assembly- gasket replacement (excessive burning smell in vehicle). no coating under vehicle to protect interior components- dealership fixed. inside of windshield cracked/ chipped internally- no apparent reason. vehicle is garage kept. brake assembly replaced per recall. interior dashboard loses color- replaced two times. convertible top apparatus-excessive rust- needs replacement. cd player stopped working since 20,000 miles but had replaced due to time constraints at 30,000 miles. convertible roof gasket- replaced due to defect. there are other problems but i am sick of typing. this is absolutely the worst ford product i have ever purchased. not only that, but the delray lincoln/mercury repair department appears corrupt. i wonder if they have to pay for the repairs and what their incentives are for ly

my 2000 ford taurus se, with 31,900 miles on it, has recently developed a six (6) inch long split in the sheet metal skin inside the right front door jam on the door piller. the split in the sheet metal is wide enough to see the interior of the door piller. this defect will be reported to my ford dealership on january 6,2003. the defect was first discovered on january 4, 2003. i would consider this defect extremely serious since the door pillar is an important part of the vehicle's safety mechanism. photographs have been taken of the defect and can be mailed to your office upon request.

i am the owner of a 1992 ford explorer and have noticed that the factory installed roof rack is very unstable and wobbly. i am concerned that if i secure my property to the rack, that i run the risk of losing it on the road and possibly creating hazardous conditions for other drivers. i have inspected the racks of several other similar vehicles and they all seem to have the same problem.
