This is after picking up the car.
Two images here, click second image to see the one from today.
So my Mustang has ~23k miles on it, and is under warranty.
Just got back from Mahwah Ford where they say "Working as designed"
Here is the history.
Took my car there for air conditioner clicking, and whiny noise in second gear.
They tell me they have to take the transmission off.
So they take it off and replace all sorts of parts (see link to documentation).
the next week they call me back and tell me that they test drove it after putting the trans back on and the car isn't shifting right have they have to take the transmission back off again.
This is all over the course of a few weeks.
The next week I get a call and they tell me the transmission guy changed his mind and that there is nothing wrong and I can take it back.
I get it back, and it seems that I now have more problems than I brought it in with.
Gears 1 through 3 grind on normal stop and go driving. 2nd is by far the worst.
My car now drifts to the left. (video to come)
My stick shifter is off centered now, to the left, such that it rubs against the left side of the shifter box, you can feel the friction and there is noise.
Gear shifting is loud and clunky. Difficult to get into gears 1st and 2nd.
There have been numerous times where I have to glide through and intersection because I can't get it into second gear, nearly getting hit by other cars.
And now in 4th gear, there is a strong vibration, very noticeable above 4k rpm (video to come).
So I called ford customer caer and told them it doesn't seem safe to be driving this around. And they told me to take it back to the dealership.
So eventually they got the Ford field service engineer to come and drive it with the service manager.
I asked repeatably to ride with the tech and service manager to demonstrate the problem, they said that isn't necessary. I get a call again at work saying there is nothing wrong with the car, and to come pick it up.
Well I'll let you decide, here is the video.
