The stalling problem is a major safety hazard. The car stalls when the brake pedal is depressed (in neutral gear). The power steering and power brakes also lose power, causing me to do whatever not to crash. I know of other Mustangs noticing the same problem. My car was serviced at the dealer for this specific problem, but failed to fix it.

problem #1

Sep 051998


  • miles
Unable to turn steering wheel in a brake and steer situation. Steering works as expected, until pressure is applied at the same time steering is needed in a panic evasive stop. No accident has occurred. Dealer claims this is normal since all of the vehicles checked do the same. Would like not to have name released do to employment reasons.
