As soon as I heard about the rear axle problem, I didn't really believe it either. Because like others have said, it's basically the same rear end Mustangs have had for years. But the guy at our dealership (again I work there so I deal with these guys everyday) told me that he knows one of the head engineers at the place making the rear axle housings. That's just what I've been told, so it's all I can really say. Obviously time will tell, but I think everything's going to be just fine. Ford isn't perfect, niether is anyone else, but they won't screw up our Mustang.
