2011 Ford Mustang Long-Term Road Test

2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: The End Is Near, Bodyblue

November 15, 2011


It's time once again to update the masses on the 'Stang's durability and do some good old-fashioned gloating at the same time.

If you don't remember the bet you should revisit the comments from this post where I indulged Bodyblue's offer of a little wager about the Mustang's transmission and/or clutch not surviving our test.

Here's the deal as I put it in the comments: "If the Stang's trans or clutch fails before 20,000 miles, I'll eat my words publicly in a blog proclaiming your prophesy as truth. If, however, the Stang's powertrain lives to 20K, you're not allowed to be the fun police on this blog ever again."

The Mustang is still going strong. Victory is near. Let the burnouts continue.
