My wife and I own a 2006 Mustang GT. A great car, except we (she) has problems with the cd player skipping when she listens to books-on-tape.
We bought the car from CarMax last year and had problem with this skipping shortly after. Took it back, they said it was "dirty cd's", they "cleaned" the cds and it seemed to work better, for awhile. It started again about 4 months ago. Leaves out words, skips end of sentences, etc. My wife drives about 45 minutes to work and enjoys the tapes.
We have tired the same tapes in our other vehicle (2006 Nissan Titan 4x4) and they work fine. I took it to local Ford dealer under our extended warranty. They replaced the cd unit with a "rebuilt" unit. Still skipped. Took it back and the replaced unit with a "new" unit. Ford has been most helpful, but it still skips.
I was on a self help auto repair website recently and posed this problem and one guy responded that it might be caused by the very stiff suspension with the GT.
We have 19" wheels and low profile tires and the ride is quite "stiff". Good for driving, but I'm wondering if he might be right when it comes to the cd player.
Have any of you experienced the problem and if so do you have any suggestions on how to fix it? I do not want to go back to Ford w/o some idea of what is wrong.
