    This is the 'car of the year' according to MotorWeek. Must have the 'powerful' V6 under the hood. But it appears as if this is gonna affect resale value? Plus, it looks from the pictures like reliability may be impacted too?

    Did owner do any single modification under the hood? Any number of techs could have moved something by accident if this were the case. Other wise ford has a big recall coming

    Shouldn't impact values that greatly, Kelley and NADA consider this "average" condition for a Mustang.

    Perhaps they should call them the Fantastic Four editions, then when this happens periodically, they can say it's simulating the Human Torch?! (Sorry, as a comic-geek I couldn't resist!)

    With our potentially leaking fuel rail we too could see this problem

    That sucks. Could happen to anyone even on a bone stock car. I feel bad for the guy. Just got a nice new Mustang and all of a sudden it's a molten mess! At least he can get another one of those without too much trouble!!!!!
