Default 2000 Mustang V6 5 speed starter problems

I have a 2000 3.8L, 5 speed. In the last 8 months, I have replaced the starter 6 times, with the last 2 being genuine Ford starters. I have also replaced the starter relay. Yesterday, the sixth starter quit. Any suggestions?

Default Failing?

The starter gear is still pulling in, so I am assuming that the motor windings are failing. They have all been warrantied, but it is still a pain!

That is very strange. I have no solid answer for you other than check your wire going to the starter. The wires are known for corroding up from the starter and new starters come with such a wire to prevent that.....
