Thanks for that advice, I appreciate it.

I did ask my contact at the dealer (who is a Mustang guy who I like), after he told me that there is no technical bulletin on the issue, if I should bother to bring in the car to have the issue checked out, and his answer was, "you could, but they'll probably just tell you that it's normal behavior."

Is this really normal behavior for this car, or is something out-of-spec on mine?
