i left it at the dealer anyway though...hopefully they can pull a code from when it was giving me trouble. people like allentown were right afterall about these cars...i have never had one break down on me like this. ford fail. this is my first one and so far, i dont think i would get another. just wanted to let you guys know...i will keep you all updated on what the dealer says tomorrow (most likely saying how everything checks out or some b.s and i will always be worried about it dying)
I just wanted to add my experience, I just recently bought a 2010 Mustang GT and have had it for not even two weeks, I'm having the same problem with mine that you mentioned. I took it to the dealership last night and got the typical response of they can't find anything or fix it unless they can duplicate the problem.

I have to agree that I think it has to do with the securilock feature because when it dies or doesn't start, I hit the unlock switch a couple of times (either on my key or the door) and try again and it starts fine or with some hesitation. I just don't feel I should have to have this added stress. Like you this is my first Mustang and my first American car so I'm very hesitant about it. I hope that someone might be able to give an answer here that might help me.

my issue did get resolved eventually. it took them a while (about a week i think) but they discovered a loose connector or something that was coming undone in the fuel pump circuitry as per the attached diagram.

i hope yours gets resolved eventually as well. it sounds a bit different from what i was experiencing though. mine de-activated the fuel pump which includes a fail safe to prevent the engine from starting period.
