2011 Ford Mustang V6 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Best car I have ever owned.
I have owned a lot of cars....mostly GM and this beats them hands down.


Best Features

Gas mileage is as advertised (when you keep it under 65mph), 6 speed transmission is great. Tight cornering. Excellent accelleration


Worst Features

no spare/donut tire. Not even an option. Wasn't told about. Wouldn't have bought this one without a real spare/donut. Incredible to think Ford would sell their Muscle car without one. Include a spare! Get better accountability from Ford Customer Relations and Dealership.

2011 Ford Mustang V6 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

We have had this car for 16 months & can report no problems at all. Tranny has been good.
Sure footed & fun to drive. We usually get 30 mph on highway & the expected 20 mph city.
That highway mph was a selling point for us and is pretty incredible.
We are keeping close watch on the transmission since we have heard of others with problems but we don't take it to high rpms or shift harshly. We did rent an automatic for 1 wk & highly recommend the manual 6sp. Front seats fit my 6 ft frame very well. One funny note: we are in our 50s & quite regularly come across kids who want to race us. Can't do but would like to get in on a track to see what it can really do. Overall we are very pleased.


Best Features

Power and agility. Smooth shifting 6 sp manual tranny. Great highway mpg.


Worst Features

None that we can think of.

2011 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Loaded (all I didn't get was the glass roof, HID headlights, and gaudy louvers and scoops) with a 3.55 rear diff, I've had this car for just over a year and no complaints. I've never had a "fast car" let alone muscle car before so, performance wise, it's like I'm driving a superhero (well mannered, but capable of things that put - and leave - a smile on your face that stays all day). I've heard a lot of talk on the tranny, but I've had no problems at 6500mi (2nd car and don't drive a lot). Took a pro-driving class and was amazed. She cornered as if on rails as they say. Rated at 16/25mpg City/Hwy, I see 14/22 in WA which puts additives in the gas.


Best Features

Performance is great, but I cannot get over the gadgets! SYNC lets you do nearly everything by voice command (remembering all possible commands is the hard part). Love that my car has a 10Gb HDD, plays DVDs, music on my phone, and lets me control my iPod completely from the car's touch screen. How did we live before heated seats? And backup cameras!? When I get down to 50mi left in the tank, a soft tone sounds and my map displays all the nearby gas stations. Both HD and satellite radios are too much to listen to (but will be great on road trips). Oh, almost forgot, looks of both fear and envy from other drivers...priceless.


Worst Features

Hate the center console - sits too high, which makes shifting a little awkward. Cannot simply copy MP3 song files to the HD (even though it recognizes jump drives and plays mp3 disks). You can only rip from a CD...yeah, stunningly stupid. Now, with iPod connectivity, HD and Sat radio you may say so what. Well, the radio is the radio and sometimes they just don't play what you want to hear. And the iPod takes 5min to index 4500+ songs, so it's only used on long trips, so I need music on the harddrive. It took over 2-months to put 2500 songs on my HD (ripping songs to and from work, creating CDs, etc.) And summer tires mean always watching the temp. Oh, and no spare with Brembo package!

2011 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

My new 2011 5.0 Mustang Premium is our third Mustang and the best yet.
We owned a 1969 and now own a 2008 CS/GT and 2011 5.0.
Great car and would highly recommend.


Best Features

Excellent car that met my primary needs: American made sports car; Powerful engine with reasonable MPG; RWD; Automatic trans; Reasonable MPG; Great handling; Quiet interior with excellent bluetooth; No rattles; Terrific styling; More comfortable seats and more trunk space than the car I traded; Ambient lighting can be turned off (love that feature because i don't like interior ambient lights.)


Worst Features

Minor issues: SYNCH could be easier to program; Carpet quality could be better / more durable; Trunk should be carpeted rather than the cheap fabric they use; Premium should come standard with polished 19" wheels rather than painted; Don't like the rear end styling with the angled corners; (I would like 2011 front end and grill with 2008 rear-end)

2011 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The 2011 and 2012 Ford Mustangs V6 and V8 are equipped with a Getrag Ford MT82 manual transmission built in China. These cars are not the subject of a safety investigation by the NHTSA as owners are reporting they are unable to shift. Personally, I lost my first transmission at 1400 miles, and my second transmission at 3,000 miles. This is a known issue and despite customer complaints all over the internet, they have refused to acknowledge the issue or provide a fix.


Best Features

5.0L motor and handling on curves with Brembo


Worst Features

Please honor your warranty and fix these cars before somebody is injured or worse
