Manual transmission problems
By Gary Dickinson on
2007 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I enjoy driving the Mustang except for a whining noise from the manual transmission in 5th gear and pulling positive torque. No noise when not under acceleration or slowing down. This is my third Mustang and the previous '88 and '95 both with the 5 speed manual did not make any noise like this. The dealership mechanic and the owner of the dealership both drove the car and both acknowledge the noisy gear whine but Ford wants more info from them comparing the noise with another new 5 speed manual transmission in another car. This transmission was flawed right from the first mile and should have been immediately repaired or replaced. Needless to say I am very disappointed with Ford and their quality.
I am delighted with fit and finish of the body. I also like the simplicity and speed of the convertible top operation
