Now that the NHTSA has opened a case for the MT82, and needs "evidence of the problem", and since there are dozens of pics and vids of the MT82 "problem", IMO it would be a good thing for owners who have filed a report and have a contact at the NHTSA to email them the videos and pics from the various forums and threads providing the "evidence" they need to push Ford to a solution.

One way to accomplish that would be to upload the videos of grinding, popping out of gear, and failing to go into gear, along with pics of the destroyed gears, synchros, chips in the oil (along with links to each) on this thread for access for all "contactees" to send to their NHTSA contact...

Information, pics, and links regarding the history of similar problems with the MT82 on other vehicles might be helpful as well... ESPECIALLY those vehicles that have had safety related problems similar to the 'Stang.

If it seems to work, media contacts could also be directed to the thread for background vids and pics.

Yes? No? Comments?

Overall I love the car, but I almost hate the MT82.

You should file with the NHTSA now. If they contact you, your information about how well it's doing in the heat can really be valuable to the investigation.

Hi members,

We are all aware of this NHTSA investigation going on about these transmissions. No one knows how long this investigation will take. I am still here to help you guys. If anyone is experiencing any concerns with their vehicle, please make an appointment with your Ford dealer as soon as possible. Then, private message me with your VIN, contact info, mileage, and dealer info. This way, I can get this escalated and get this situation worked out. Please, continue to stay strong and thank you for your support!
