2009 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


I purchased a brand new 427R Roush. It was a Beautiful looking car, and a rocket.. But looks fade faster then fords relaibility does. This was my first New american car.. after owning a variety of Honda, Toyota, and Subaru based cars, i figured i would do the American thing and buy an american car.. Well the fact is, it is a Mexican and Canadian car.. Where as my toyota's are more american.
At 56K out the door it was a huge disappointment.

Best Features

0-60 in neck snapping rocket speed. With simple bolt on's and slicks it ran a low 11.24

Worst Features

where to start!!!??? 1. The power steering pump died at 8K miles 2. It was burning oil at 12K miles 3. Two sets of power window motors before 18K miles 4. Exhaust leaks at the manifold gaskets 5. clutch peddle broke the welds and fell off.. 6. Rattles and squeeks 7. Headlight benzles melted off, and the dealership refused to fix them under warranty, until my lawyer called. 8. 10mpg on a good day.. 9. Rear end seal started leaking at 22k miles.. Luckily sold it at 33K miles for 25K dollars.. yeah lost 31K dollars in value over 2 years.. worst POS ever.. Run if you have a choice!

The Mustang is built in Flat Rock, Michigan, not Mexico or Canada.
