Having posted that, don't let it scare you into purchasing a Mustang. Many of us have had few problems if any.

Ya, there are a lot of TSB's, but the same goes with any car. I read those and half of them are repeated through the list or are very vague. Most people don't have problems.

Pinion seal failure seem to be sort of common. Mine did. Also, I had a transmission leak and a seal needed to be replaced.

Mine too, POS! But I guess if that is all we can complain about then we are doing pretty damn good.

Busted mine off twice. Gave up and bought some billet ones. Problem solved.

TSB's are common for every car, here is the TSB for 2005 honda.

And keep in mind that the 05 honda was not a new run like the mustang.
