2011 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)

Review

In a word: Awesome. This is my 3rd late model Mustang, and the new 5.0 engine is tops. Combined with the 6 speed manual, 3:73 gears, and Brembo brakes, it performs well beyond my capabilities. However, there are issues due to Govnmt regulations. One, if you shift softly, it will force you from 1st to 4th. Thanks, EPA. It lugs way to much when this happens, and I will soon tear into and disconnect this. Second, why all the electronics? I don't want power windows, Sirus radio, TPS, and all the other gadgets that are standard. Just want pure performance, less weight, and raw power. Otherwise, an awesome machine for sure.

Best Features

5.0 engine, 6 speed, Brembo brakes, Grabber Blue color

Worst Features

Smaller wheels than 19", needs manual windows, no Sirius radio, no TPS, no airbags, and no EPA required skip shifts. Unclutter our cars from unreliable electronics.

The Skip-Shift feature can be over-ridden by simply forcing it into 2nd gear (push harder into the slot, it'll drop). Also, you can just go from 1st to 3rd, your torque can handle it, no problems. At the end of the day this feature saves you gas and only kicks in when you are NOT trying to smoke the tires.
