2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Overhead Console
August 25, 2011
Our long-term Ford Mustang GT 5.0 has many great performance and styling attributes. Ford did a good job styling the interior while keeping the cost down. Of course there are some slip-ups, like the short carpet under the pedals. Here are two more.
The overhead console is bland and super cheap. It looks like an afterthought, as if they used a piece of plastic that was lying around on the shop floor. And behind it is the wiring for the inner mirror. Is that electrical tape? No, but it sure looks like it.
Ford, please take care of these items the next time around. Fortunately, that 5.0 V8 and the reasonable list price more than make up for these shortcomings.
