RE: bitchin seatbelt retainers

I bought a pair of the "bitchin" seatbelt retainers from the guy, so I'll review them here. I thought it was a great idea and didn't look too bad. I really commend the guy who made them. He took a...

RE: What Is High Mileage on a GT?

You make a very good point here. I certainly don't want to make a bunch of people on the forum mad, and I was very hesitant to mention the dreaded "T" word, but your posttruly shouts a question that...

RE: What Is High Mileage on a GT?

Yes, that's what I mean. Other car companies deliver this quality every day. Why can't Ford?

RE: What Is High Mileage on a GT?

OK, I see what PetePete, 05GTDriver, and DanGT06 are saying. Good point.

Still, I'm concerned about quality and longevity of Fords, particularly the S197, over the next several years. I strongly...

What Is High Mileage on a GT?

The thread about 05 GT's selling for a low price got me thinking. Specifically, several members here have either stated outrightor insinuated that 40,000 to 50,000 miles on the odometer of a...

RE: Help with Head Restraints

Me too. It's always a task to find the same position once I've allowed the seat to fold forward for rear seat access.

Help with Head Restraints

How do the head restraints / head rests come out in the S197 ?I really need to take mine out temporarily. In most cars, you simply push the release button and lift upwards. I've obviously tried this,...

RE: ARE WE BETTER THAN THE OTHER ONES?

I'm one of the few on here who says that older Mustangs were better built and more reliable than the current S197 line. I had an '89 and an '04 before my current S197, and both of those older...

RE: Front End Still Thunking . . . What Dealer Says About New Part

1Quik06 -- The TSB I'm referring to is TSB 07-18-2. I don't have a link to it right off, but a quick search would probably reveal it. In fact, it's probably listed in the section of Mustang TSBs at...

RE: Trade In Value of an '06 GT???

I believe that on a trade-in you're going to be so far upside-down in contrast to amount you owe that it would be financially detrimental. Anytime I've owned a car for less than three years, I've...

RE: Front End Still Thunking . . . What Dealer Says About New Part

Yes, Torch Red, I referred to that TSB on the phone with the service manager, and he was offended a bit and thought that I was suggesting that he was incompetent. I really didn't mean to suggest...

RE: Seat Belt Position Adjustment ? -- A Pain in the . . . Neck!

Jason -- That is EXACTLY what I've been working on. Good thinking! So far I haven't come up with anything that has worked. If I can come up with any workable solution, I'll share with everyone here.

RE: Seat Belt Position Adjustment ? -- A Pain in the . . . Neck!

A lot of people didn't like the looks of those plastic loop guides on the side of the seats of the '01-04 Mustangs, but they surely were useful. I've had several ideas for creating my own solution,...

Question About A/C Compressor on GT

My 05 GT continues to have problems with the a/c compressor. Earlier this year I had to take it back to the dealer for a new compressor since the original one quit working at 15,000 miles. Now I have...
