Hey guys- I put my stang in the shop for the same reason. They said that they new it was a problem with the power steering pump. They said tha the only thing they could do is flush the systema and put in an "additive." The sound went away for about three days and now it is back as loud as ever.
We really need to start complaining about this to the manufacturer. does anyone know who to contact? I know I did not spend almost 30K on a beautiful new mustang, just so it would make that shreeking noice whenI turn - It DRIVES ME NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!
Any other suggestions?

Did you find out what was causing the wierd noise with low speed turns? My car is also making this whining noise when turning at low speeds, but not all the time. It seems to happen after the car has been on the highway for awhile, then when I get onto regular roads or turn into parking lots the whining starts. Hey, I just had a thought...maybe my car is just complaining about slowing down!! No, but seriously, did you find out what was going on? I'm going to have to take mine in to have it looked at, so any info you have ahead of time would help.

Yes - they said it is the power steering pump. They said that even if thye changd the pump, it would still make the noise - it is a defective design.
I really do not know what to do about it. I will try to find an email address to send complaints to FORD, and maybe they will do a recall.

I took mine in for this too. Same deal. Car has to be driven for about 10 minutes, and only happens on slow turns. Sounds like S**t. Joe Myers told me they could not replicate the noise.

Any updates on this?

Happened to my thunderbird, but has not happened to my Mustang. They said it was some link in the springs or something like that. I'll find out what it was for sure and maybe you guys can see if its the same problem you guys are having.

Mine makes this noise also. We need to get Ford to address this problem not just brush it under the carpet. I suspect that after the warrenty runs out it will fail and cost alot of money to fix. But then it will not be Fords problem.

One interesting factor that I have noticed, is that it will continue to make the noise when the steering wheel is no longer being turned, but the car is still cornering. I have driven it in a circle in a parking lot without turning the wheel and the groan continues. That sort of leads me to believe it could be a suspension problem instead of the power steering.

Does that give anyone ideas?

We need some techie input on this one.

One thing for sure, when I take it back to get fixed, I'm taking a mechanic for a ride. No way I'm settling for "couldn't replicate the problem" again.

Say the noise caused you to crash cause it was a distraction on the road and try to create a law suit. Win the case and get all of us new 'stangs.

Don't mean to hijack this thread but, I'm having the same problems with my car stalling than coming back to life after highway driving of any driving in 5th gear for a while. So, I'm just going to wait until it randomly stalls and i get rearended and hurt and never have to work again and than yes i will buy everyone some new 'stangs. How come the only way to find out all these problems, must of them seriosuly risking our safety on this boared. I mean, it's to hard for ford to send an e-mail or letter or something. Chevy sends recall notices in the mail all the time.

Let's stick with the power steering issue please. My dealership called me yesterday to ask if I still had the problem. They are giving me a loaner on Monday and will have a tech ride with me to hear the noise. They suspect the p/s motor (they did a flush last time).

If anyone has had this problem fixed let me know before Monday so I will have additional information to give the dealership.

I will let everyone know the results.

I could not find TSB 5-21-02 on this website. Is that the one for the 2005 suspension popping noise? Ialso tried a Google search.

I have the same issue. I don't remember noticing it when I first got the car, but now, at low speeds, I hear all sorts of rubbing noises even on slight turns (like into an angled parking space). I had the dealership check on it and they said everything was fine. If you come across a resolution (or even an admission that there IS something to this) I would love to hear about it!

There really needs to be a TSB on this. I really love driving a car I just spent $38K on squealling like a stuck pig every time I make a slow 90 degree turn.
