Wes K Posted October 6, 2009 Report Share Posted October 6, 2009 I was going to change my oil on my KR and found BRAKE fluid leaking all over the ABS hydraulic control unit! After some simple investigation I had found that a lot of my PAINT HAD BEN EATEN!!! I took the car to the dealer and they said this is very common and that they see it weekly? The prob was a split/broken brake line where it meets the ABS HCU at the front drivers side of the engine compartment. They told me that the prob is so frequent that parts were on back order and actually had to wait up to 2 weeks to get the part!!! Anyways it ruined all the paint in the engine comp. k member, etc. Also hit my front carbon fiber spoiler and turned it all white. I talked to customer service and asked for a buy back for a new KR and they pure and simple said no way we will only paint it and it will go on my service record this way and that would mean I lose major money on this car as an original if I ever want to sell it! I can say this, as for the 2011 GT500 I wont be buying as mentioned earlier and we just called the dealer and told them to keep our 2010 we did just buy! They asked why and I told them and they said they understood and would do the same thing. Ford customer service said I would get a call within 2 biz days from a super to tell me the same thing they just told me and that there is no one else to talk to about the subject??? Just thought I'd let everyone know about this in case you too have the same prob. I think Ford needs to do a RECALL on this ABS system so the rest of you (and me too cuz I still have a few of these cars) dont get there paint eaten up and our cars devalued because of new paint!!! This is not just the KR its 2005+ mustangs in general!!! I wonder if anyone has had an accident due to this or even worse? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
