My husband bought this car for me to replace my tired Mazda 626. The 626 was very well-equipped, so the Mustang falls short on a number of "extras". The biggest problem is the hard ride. It's fine on smooth pavement, but who has that to drive on any more? The clutch is also extremely tricky. I am accustomed to driving various vehicles with standard transmissions, but mastering this one is very difficult. My spouse has the same problem. I love the look of the car, but have had to equip the driver's seat with a hospital-quality wheelchair seat cushion to avoid having a splitting pain in my neck when driving.
Styling. Handling. Power.
Better, more comfortable seats. Better suspension.
