2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Storage Space

February 28, 2012

I'm a big fan of our long-term Mustang GT 5.0. Well, I'm a big fan of driving it, anyway.

I will admit to getting a bit bothered by the lack of interior storage space when I have the Mustang over a weekend, though. I've already covered the trunk hampered by the subwoofer. No need to discuss that any further.

It's things like the tiny, near-useless door pockets, which can barely fit a notebook or a wallet, that annoy me.

The center armrest bin at least has some capacity, but it's more deep than it is large, and it's situated fairly far back, making it a chore to dig through and find things once you've put them in there.

And, lastly, the glove box is pretty small.

Does it really change anything for me? Nah. The GT 5.0's driving experience more than makes up for the lack of thought that went into storage space.
