If you hear any noise coming from the transmission, there probably damage there. Each time the 2nd gear was engaged during acceleration, the gear would pop out to neutral. I was turning left into an intersection and waas unable to power the vehicle to safely make the turn. If that's the problem, that might be affecting reverse too. They took my car and gave me a Expedition for the week and ordered three solinoids from different dealers across the country and fixed it.
So I tried shifting into first quickly and it would not go in, I backed out into neutral and tried again, once again it would not go in. Ford has issued a technical service bulletin to dealers on this issue and has revised certain parts within the clutch pedal assembly. Also we have four kids. It's 10-spline input and 27-spline output shafts severely limited the power handling of this otherwise awesome 6-speed manual transmission. Can you feel a vibration? These are mods that will make a difference no matter if you Mustang is a daily driver or dedicated track car.
Like the T45, the weak spot in this transmission is the 10-spline input shaft. Do you think it's the neutral safety switch? So far, most professional reviews are digging it.

I also enjoy driving it every day to work and it makes me feel like he is still with us. Ford has lost many formerly loyal customers over this.
There is no pattern to when or why it does it. It has been notchy in 1st-3rd since the first few hundred miles, and during cold weather is very hard to get into 2nd gear without grinding and popping back out for the first few shifts of the morning. I was between Camaro and Mustang but made the wrong choice. First they replaced spark plug then ignition coil then intake manifold. Luckily, there have been no reports of accidents or injuries stemming from this problem but reports indicate that several of the 32 complaints that caused the investigation alleged that it almost caused an accident. The reverse synchronizer assembly was also revised for better engagement.
Just want all to be aware of this issue! Original review: July 25, 2017 I love this car. The failure and current mileage was 12,600. Akismet This is used to detect comment spam.

The vehicle was taken to a dealer who diagnosed that the transmission was malfunctioning and they were in the process of finding a suitable remedy for the failure. If necessary, add the necessary oil and check the transmission; otherwise, bring it back to the shop. My unit is not the only unit from 2015-2017 that has had this experience in short periods of time or miles.
I have a Sirius Radio and I like the little horse on the front grill. I hope that Ford fixes my problem and everyone else's. But in most cases, you'll have to rebuild or replace that part of the assembly. I just took it in to service due to not having any 3rd gear at all after attempting to shift from 2nd into 3rd while merging into Highway traffic. It's too slow even in normal mode, and while sportier drive modes do speed things up, the shifts are never quite as quick as we would hope. I also like that it's a 5. The clutch is lightweight, meaning you can skip leg day and still drive the manual Mustang in nearly any kind of traffic.
I informed the dealer they looked at and said it was nothing!!!!!! Then it was end of February to be delivered, then mid March. After that I reach out to Ford Service Facebook account and explain my problem to them as well. A stretched linkage can be caused by a damaged engine or transmission mount. Take a look at this thread. I like the inside is in great shape and like the color of the inside too.
