NHTSA looking into Ford Mustang over manual transmission issues

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration this past weekend said it was opening a preliminary investigation into 26,000 2011-2012 Mustang units.

The NHTSA said it has received 32 complaints alleging an unexpected inability to shift into gear on those model year Mustangs with a manual transmission.

“Some reports allege incidents occurred while merging into high speed traffic and others allege that incidents occurred while turning left across oncoming traffic,” the NHTSA said. “Some complainants allege that the erratic shifting behavior almost caused a collision with adjacent vehicles.”
