2012 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)


This is a great car, with a huge potential flaw.

I, as well as others, have experienced a crucial flaw in the stability control system on some 2011 and 2012 Mustangs.
The stability control has a tendency on some vehicles to engage itself at around 50MPH for about 15-20 seconds.
During this time, the car cuts throttle, and engages the brakes - and can cause the car to buck, sway, and behave violently.
Ford has yet to acknowledge this issue or supply a fix.

Best Features

Awesome acceleration, and decent handling. The car is easy to see out of, unlike the Camaro and Challenger, and weighs less than either of those cars.

Worst Features

I would change the metal button on the top of the console used to open it. This gets very hot in the summer, and is right where you'd place your arm. I would also give the car a more aggressive exhaust system. The factory exhaust sounds weak.
