5 - speed
« on: December 06, 2007, 01:24:02 PM »

 JUST PICKED UP AN '07 AND SHE'S A BEAUTY. EXCEPT FOR THE 5 - SPEED MANUAL.  IT SHIFTS LIKE A TRACTOR.  A LOCAL DEALERSHIP TOLD ME THAT IT'S CALLED "POSITIVE LOCK". IT JUST SHIFTS REAL STIFF AND JERKY ( ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S COLD OUT ).  I'LL "SEMI" POWER SHIFT FROM 1ST TO 2ND AND IT'S TOUGH TO GET IT INTO GEAR.  I HAVE TO TAKE MY TIME TO LET IT ENGAGE.  I'M LOOKING TO PUT IN A HURST SET UP BUT I'M A LITTLE HESITANT.  IS THIS SOMETHING THAT ANYBODY HAS EXPERIENCED IN THEIR NEWER MUSTANG ?

 Yes I heared a lot about transmission problems on the new Mustangs. It seems dealerships all have the same answer saying it's normal. Some people fixed the problem with a shorter shifter like you suggested and others had to adjust the clutch and replace the transmission fluid to get rid of the problem.
 Maybe you can test drive another standard Mustang or truck at a dealership to see if the transmission is the same. If it's not you will have a proof yours needs to be fixed.
 Congratulations about your choice of a new car and good luck  ;)

there are tons of after market kits and are simple to install. But make sure you get the ones with urethane bushings .
