2011 Ford Mustang Long-Term Road Test

2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Still Going.

Perhaps you remember the little bet commentor bodyblue and I have going about the durability of our long-term Mustang. He says either its clutch or transmission will die before 20,000 miles thanks to all our burnouts.

I say they will not.

Although I can't seem to find the exact post where this wager was leveled (I'm sure you'll help me), I've vowed to eat my words publicly, in this blog, if proven wrong. But if I'm right, old bodyblue will surrender his right to be the fun police on any burnout post.

At least those are the terms as I remember them, but that's not the point of this post. Rather, the point of this post, is to gloat that at more than 11,000 miles, the Mustang's powertrain bits are holding up just fine.
