[10/30/2002] 2003 Mustang Cobra production stopped

It has been reported that Ford Motor Company has given the order to halt all production of the 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. Supposedly this decision was made due to quality concerns over problems experienced with the Cobra''s new 390 hp 4.6L supercharged powerplant. What the exact issues/problems found are is not known at this time. However, Cobra''s already produced are still supposed to be released and shipped to customers. FoMoCo is trying to address any needed issues and restart production of the Cobra around mid-November. Whether this will result in fewer 2003 Cobra Mustangs being produced is not known, but the official word from Ford claims it will not.

Let us hope that Ford can quickly and efficiently address any issues discovered, and get the full number of Cobra''s slated for this production year out the door to enthusiasts. Although this is disappointing news, it is certainly better Ford takes proactive action rather than continue to roll out Cobra''s with issues once discovered. This shows they may have learned from the fiasco that took place several years ago when Ford kept rolling out 1999 Cobra''s to customers even after it was discovered the engines were producing far less horsepower than claimed. If Ford takes steps to remedy issues once found, even if it means stopping production temporarily, that''s better than consumers not getting what they''re paying for. In my personal opinion with the information known thus far, Ford made the right call.
