I had issues with the A/C not
working. It was under warranty so FMC
fixed it. However, there was some
mumbling at the dealership about
seeing Mustangs coming back with
similar issues with the A/C. Go
figure. Gas mileage is poor, but you
don't drive this car to save gas.
Shaker hood scoop.
Shorter throw on the shifter.
More of a throaty sound from the
mufflers. Improve exterior/interior
components. The mirrors, cowl under
the wipers, door handles, interior
trimmings, etc. All appear to look
and have the feel of cheap plastic.
Im not a big fan of the Heritage rims.
For those of you that are tired of
looking at all of these "Fast and the
furious" wanna be's the Mach 1 is the
car for you. You know the cars that I'm
talking about. The Dodge Neon with the
whale tail or the Honda Civic with a 3

this "outdated"). The seats were more
comfortable and the driver area felt a
bit more spacious.
the look. can you really beat it? I
love the new seat, very comfortable for
wheel options... the heritage wheel
doesn't strike my fancy. when the AC
kicks on, you can feel it if you were
This car is falling apart cosmetically.
The passenger side seat sits against
the door and ford does not know how to
repair it. The leather rubs against the
door panel and is quite annoying. Both
windows have had problems, and the
radio along with other minor repairs.
It has been to the shop at least once a
month since I have owned it. I regret
ever buying this pile of juck that has
lost so much value.
Ford needs to improve the way they make
these cars. They are cheap piles of
junk that fall apart after 6 months.
This is the first and last Ford I will
