My transmission went out as well on my Ford 2000. I am pretty upset. Now my steering is not working and I need to find out what is going on with that. Also the suspension is shot. I would never even recommend this car to anyone.

Why don't you include your email address so we could keep track of each others FORD mustang problems? It would be good to present to your dealer that more than one person has a defective Mustang with the same problem.
2000 Mustang GT, in the shop 5 times for throw out bearing and clutch replacement in the last 6 months. anybody else with this problem.

I have a Ford Mustang 2000 and so far I have had a motor mount replaced, torque converter and fly wheel replaced, tire rod ends replaced, rotors turned once, tires balanced repeatedly and I am having all the above problems again.
Ford is trying to now say most of it is normal wear and tear to try to get out of doing the warranty work.

I have a 2000 Mustang GT and the throwout bearing is making a noise. But the dealer says it is just "bearing rollover".I have never heard of this before. I know it is the throwout bearing and the service manager had the nerve to argue with me. He went so far as to say that I had to live with the noise and that it was normal.

Good advice: Instead of buying a worthless underpowered problem prown mustang, get a bus pass, it will be faster and more reliable.

I purchased my 2000 Mustang GT new and since that time I have had the following faults repaired/replaced under the warranty:
Idle Air Control Motor fault,
Parking Brake not releasing,
Rear Axle / Drive Line Faults,
Rear Differential Problems,
Rear Brakes Seized,
More Rear Differential Problems,
Major Oil leak/cracked Engine Block.
Considering that the car is a daily driver and completly stock. I would never recommend a Ford Mustang to anyone. If you have one sell it, save your-self all the problems.

I got a 2000 Gt, black on black, and my beautiful car has not given me any problems. I love this car.

I owned 15 of these cars and have never had any type of problems that is described.

I have a 2000 GT which I bought at 23,000 miles. The throw out bearings are shot. They will last a while if you cut the hole shots in half. This will allow time to bank the money to go after market or something a little heavier. Quit spending the money at the dealership and go after market and the problems will decrease.

I also have a 2000 GT. I have 45k on it and I have had to clean out the IAC motor because of a stalling issue ($4 for carb cleaner). Not a big price to pay considering the awsome performance of this car. Best bang for the buck in my book. Every car you purchase might give you issues, might as well make it a fast car.

I just bought a used 2000 gt with 60,000 miles on it. She is a peach! I can't help, but grin when I hear that engine growl and can do 0-60 in 5 seconds! She will be seasonal... on the road only for the nice months. I baby her and she is an AWESOME ride. You know the commercial that says" when is a car more than just something to get you from point a to point b... I KNOW. As soon as you fire up this engine, you re grinning... and you just can't stop!

I bought a used 2000 mustang GT, black on black, the car of my dreams. Not a month later (27 days after the purchase to be exact) one of the connecting rods blew out. in other words I had to buy a whole new motor. the original motor only had 45,000 miles on it. Don't ask me how, but I was shifting into 4th gear, when it happened. Don't get me wrong, I love ford and the mustang, I just got a lemon. I got an after-market rebuilt ATK 4.6 liter in it and it runs fine.

You can't blame ford for a motor blowing up at 45,000. Obviously it was the original owner flogging it and not changing the oil.

I have a 2000 Mustang GT Convertible. The car has over 100,000 miles on it and runs great! The car shifts smoothly and accelerates well. I'll need a clutch and throw out bearing, but this is understood with the high miles. I just bought some Kelly Fierce tires and highly recommend them. The car runs great with these tires!

I've had a 2000 Stang for a long time now, and do a lot of traveling, and the car finally and sadly died with five hundred and six thousand miles on it. It was in fact a V6, but was a stick. The car ran like a dream, and would buy five others if I could. I even rolled it once, had it repaired and then drove it for the last two hundred thousand miles of its life. I LOVE THIS CAR.
