 Incident: while waiting in the left turn lane for the left turn light to turn green i had my foot on the brake. i was behind another left turning vehicle. when the light changed i took my foot off the brake so to apply pressure on the accelerator. however, before i put my foot on the accelerator the vehicle lunged forward. fortunately, i was able to reapply brake and the car stopped. this took place on level ground on south bound highway 19 at henry st. in kona. *tr

 # 1 steering/supension noise in the front of the car (bushing - cr3z-3078-c and cr3z-3079-c arm asy).# 2 fsa 12e06 powertrain control module.# 3 check fuel fill inlet.

 While refueling my vehicle in the new cap less fuel filler port, as i pulled out the nozzle excess fuel spilled out around the cap less filler port. the drains around the cap less port drained the spilled fuel inside the quarter panel of car which directed the fuel directly onto the drivers side muffler. if my car had been hot, the fuel would have ignited. this seems to me to be a very unsafe situation.

 Owner of a 2013 mustang gt premium 5.0 with 6 speed transmission. have had problems with rough shifting since shortly after buying. have taken it into my local ford dealership 2 times so far and made mention of my problems several other times. ford has been unable to correct the rough shifting with both trips to the service department telling me that they can not duplicate the problem. the rough shifting occurs in 1st-2nd and 3rd gears most of the time, especially in colder temperatures. sometimes i also have a hard time down-shifting into lower gear and just have to wait until i reach a complete stop before being able to down-shift. currently have about 7200 miles on the car and would love for this rough shifting to be resolved. these same issues remind me of the 2011 and 2012 mustang's with manual transmission that ford released a fix for that would act the same way. *tr
