This has been widely discussed. Class action lawsuits have been placed against Ford due to this.

Thanks for posting this. I just noticed it last week and took it to the local dealer's body shop. I'm not under warranty anymore but they asked Ford if they'll do it anyway. Haven't heard back yet. Anyone have suggestions on how I can use this news to help me in case Ford says they won't cover it?

This isn't new, Ford has had issues with one thing or another for years. PI intakes on the 99/00 cars, transmission issues with early run 3650s, 1-2 grind on 6060 transmissions in the GT500s, well documented MT82 problems. Corrosion on the hood? Good excuse to get a nice fiberglass one IMO.

At least this isn't like the Chevy igntion issues that they ignored for a decade+...
2000 Mustang GT Steeda build #48. Bolt ons, suspension, Novi 2000.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
