I dont care if the liberal networks are reporting on it. I'm glad all the media outlets are reporting it. The more the better.

As far as the transmissions the only real fix IMO is to replace them with the Tremec's. The getrag mt82 is a POS. Would be easier for ford to replace them with the magnum.

However that will cost them $$.

Hopefully the 2013 Mustang doesn't have the POS mt82 in it and the Tremec instead.
So, the 25,000 MT-82 transmissions in Mustangs that are running like champs mean nothing to you, its pure junk and should be thrown out eh?

Still makes little sense with this powerful of a car to put a POS transmission in it.

Hopefully 2013 has a different one or we will hear about the same problems again.

I bought an auto for this very reason. I knew the manuals were bad news and to stay away from them!

Ford did everything right with the 2010+ mustang design, except for 2011 adding the mt82. Otherwise everything is good about this car.

not in texas. people in texas can't drive for *expletive*.


you'd be cruising along and the person in front of you will slam on the brakes at the very last second and you'll slam on yours and then somewhere along the chain someone is not on the ball and 10 car pileup.

TR-6060 or T-56, anything but the MT-82 in 2013 please. I test drove a few of the 2011s because of the trans. I thought the first one had problems so I test drove a couple others and thought they all shifted bad. Too bad and I hope Ford gets it right. Otherwise the Coyote and 2010+ car is awesome! I'm glad it's really in the public eye now, that'll make Ford do something to really fix it now. Well I hope anyway. Doesn't sound like the TSB did much.

The problem I see for this investigation from what I've been able to discern is, there is no single issue that causes MT-82 problems. Bad MT-82 shifting can occur from a number of problems, from drive-line mis-alignment, clutch issues, clutch fluid line contraction, etc. It will be interesting to find out what the NHTSA recommends.

That's strange! I had two long term business trips to the Denton/Dallas area in 2000. I left thinking Texans were the best drivers in the country! At least back then Texans understood and practiced a fast lane! I was so impressed when on a 2 lane road I came up on someone and they pulled half into the emergency lane to let me by. I remember thinking that had to be fluke, but was blown away when just about everybody did it. Here in Florida there are so many moron drivers we literally do not have a fast lane anymore!

yeah that was before they started all the construction.. now people cruise in the passing lane at 10 under the speed limit with traffic piling up behind them.

I won't even go near downtown dallas in the "rush hour" times.

I heard he's friends with the chinese that built them and paid them under the table to sabotage the transmissions so no one would buy mustangs and would by GM so the stock prices would go back up and the government can sell them at a profit instead of a loss.
