2010 & 2011 Recall

Just heard on the news that Ford will probably be recalling 2010 and 2011 Mustangs for transmission issues. Anyone else have any more detail on this?

I have no problems with my trans but how many of you out there have a problem with what ford calls a charistic miss in the engine around 2100-2400 rpms. Ford tries to say it's normal but is aggravating

Feds launch Mustang transmission probe after Jalopnik, forum stories

Earlier this year we told you about a rising number of Ford Mustang owners complaining of faulty manual transmissions that Ford can't seem to fix. Now U.S. safety regulators have opened a defect probe into 26,000 cars.

As MustangDaily noted, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Sunday it was opening the probe based on 32 complaints to the agency about the MT82 transmissions built by a Ford-Getrag joint venture in China. NHTSA has been interviewing some of those who complained, and was worried enough to launch an investigation:

Some reports allege incidents occurred while merging into high speed traffic and others allege that incidents occurred while turning left across oncoming traffic. Some complainants allege that the erratic shifting behavior almost caused a collision with adjacent vehicles.

No crashes or injuries have been reported to NHTSA from the transmissions.

While a NHTSA preliminary investigation won't automatically lead to a recall, it will force Ford to tell NHTSA how widespread the problem is, and what steps if any Ford may have taken to tackle it. One insider gave us a possible explanation blaming Ford's efforts to save money by using an older design of Getrag transmission. That design had a drawback - a gear rattle, which Ford engineers quieted by requiring a thicker transmission fluid.

Except the thicker fluid causes some of the gears to slip, creating extra wear and missed or notchy shifting. On top of those problems, some of the bolts holding the clutch can loosen because Ford didn't specify bolt thread locker. Ford has switched back to a different transmission fluid, but that makes the rattle come back.

While Ford has said it was working with customers, some Mustang owners have been told by Ford that noisy or notchy shifting is just how the transmissions are supposed to work. That's one way to fix the problem.
