I have had my mustang for 2 months now. This is a home run. I get 25 MG in city driving on premium fuel. I had a V6 2012 and there is no comparison. I drive it in sport mode and there is plenty of pep. Love the premium interior. Can,t believe I got so much car for 31K.

I bought this car in July 2015; traded in a 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X MR. The Evo was a rocket on wheels, but the Mustang is a true GT car (Grand Tourer/Gran Tourismo). I'd subjectively rate this car as about 4.7, but there's no decimal in the star rating. I had test driven a 2010 GT, and HATED it. The engine was great, but the rest of the car was junk. It FELT cheap (brand new, rattled and squeaked, and only had about 15 miles on the odo). It did NOT like corners. At all. When the back end tries to beat the front around a corner, that's not a good thing. The interior was horrible, CHEAP plastic EVERYWHERE. That car had one trick ... go fast in a straight line, hoping the thing didn't vibrate apart along the way. The 2015 is several orders of magnitude better than the 2010, hands down!! Particulars: The Mustang GT Coupe with a 6 spd manual has plenty of get up and go. Is it the fastest car out there? No. But, with 435 bhp on tap, it WILL move. It accelerated faster off the line than the Evo. The track functions are fun to play with in an empty parking lot, or a deserted mountain road. The brakes on this car are incredible! Gotta be really careful, as they grab FAST and HARD. There is pretty much no fade through use. So far, as for road-holding, you have to work to make it lose traction. Seriously. Taking some of the curves on the highways in Phoenix at 80+ mph is almost, dare I say it, yawn-inducing! No fuss, no muss, no worries at all. Steering is precise, and there is decent feel in the wheel. It's not like the old manual steering days, but you can still tell what's going on up front. The front seats are REALLY comfortable! I did a 16 hour road trip, only stopping for gas, and I didn't end up with any fatigue or discomfort while driving. The bolsters are good at keeping you where you need to be without being painfully intrusive like Recaro's can be. Rear seats ... good for small people. I mean SMALL. Three feet or less. At 6' 4", no "car" is easy to get into or out of. Trucks, yes. Cars? No. However, for average height people, entry/exit is a breeze. Ford did a really good job with the noise dampening. The stock exhaust has a pleasant, albeit quiet, growl at highway speeds. However, tire noise on worn tires can be a bit intrusive, but not obnoxiously so. Ride comfort ... see above about the 16 hour road trip. There are sufficient cubbies to lose stuff in. The instrumentation is clear and easy to read most of the time. There are occasions when the auto setting for lighting is less than ideal, like exiting a tunnel. The dash is pretty dark at that point and you may not be able to read the instruments until the lights kick back off. The interior is well laid-out and the controls are easily within reach. Commonly used controls are in good spots. The materials used are generally MUCH better than in previous generation Mustangs, but don't expect a Rolls Royce or Bentley. The radio is pretty good. I don't have navigation, but getting my phone hooked up to Sync was pretty easy. There are two USB ports for connecting/charging devices, or you could stream audio via BT. Climate controls are easily reached and used, and the heater/A/C both work well. The only niggling little things that I find annoying are a rattle that has developed behind the center dash stack (FIXED!), and the tendency of the transmission to be a bit balky shifting into 6th. Otherwise, I think this car really does follow the spirit or intent of a GT (Grand Tourer/Gran Tourismo) vehicle. It has power, comfort, poise, and style without getting into cartoonish or boy racer realms. While this car may have been marketed to a younger audience, it should also appeal to folks over 40 who don't have to worry about kids in the back seat. It can represent on the track as well as devour long miles in comfort. This is probably THE best Mustang Ford has ever produced! The early models in the 60s were great, but thanks to 50 years of evolution, these are just better in pretty much every way. It ain't perfect, but it ain't far from it, either. EDIT: Corrected a couple of grammatical issues. Also, wanted to add that, for the price (mine was just over $34K), you really can't beat it. The Evo was $47K! I would seriously recommend you check this car out before going for pricier European options, or even other American options. I've driven Challengers and was not impressed. I drove an older Camaro (2011), and like it, but I like my Mustang better. It's not gonna be for everyone, but it should be tested before being removed from consideration! UPDATE: Still loving my Mustang! It cruises smoothly at highway speeds, as any true GT car should. The mileage is a function of throttle position - the mileage below shows combined city/highway driving, the highway cruising at 75-80 (and that's just keeping up with traffic!). Despite its quirks, LOVE THIS CAR!!

I researched for months trying to find the right car for me. I ran across the 2015 Mustang and thought I'd give the old pony a try. I had the car built this past fall. When it arrived, I wasn't prepared for the end result. It was AMAZING! Pictures, videos, do no justice! My only complaint is that the back seat is pretty pointless. Even kids have trouble getting back there. It is a major headturner. Everywhere I go, people are complimenting me on this car. If you are a looking for a nice sports car, look no further. I am a 110% happy with my car!

This car gives you more bang for your buck than anything I can think of. For over 30 years I've driven only pickup trucks (always, always Ford 4x4s). I decided to keep my last F-150 and add something fun as my daily driver. I got a great deal on the Mustang Eco-boost at the local Audi dealer in Boulder, CO. It was used with 8,100 miles on the odometer for $19,000. With the Magnetic Metallic paint, it has jaw-dropping good looks and I've never owned a car that drew nearly as much attention. My long time Ford mechanic is as good with Fords as anyone I know. He not only works on them, he races them as well. He drove my Mustang once for 5 minutes and tried to buy it from me. I might be easily impressed but he is not. If he liked the car that much, it speaks volumes about the quality of this generation of Mustangs. I've noticed a few comments about vibration and/or fluttering sounds. The owners manual states that can be a problem if one or both windows are down, especially from 30 MPH up. I never drive with the windows down, so no problem for me. But the sound is not a drive shaft or any other mechanical problem, it's just what the air does when it comes in the window(s) and circulates around the interior.

April 15, 2017 I purchase this car after waiting two years. The car was purchases as a CPO because I wanted the protection of an extended warranty and I did not want to purchase 40% depreciation for the first three years. Turns out my decisions were correct. The vehicle had 28600 miles when purchased. The price was right. This car has every option except two and that's the 50 year appearance package and recaro seats. So yes it has the PP, NAV, Shaker Pro Sound System, Adaptive Cruise, Pre Collision Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring, and much more. Here is what I like about the car, 1. It's a Mustang GT and it has presence. Fun to drive in open roads. 2. For a PP car it is comfortable and performs very well on the open road. If the roads are bad, the ride quality suffers. The seats makes up for this. 3. Shaker Pro Audio is fantastic. The best source for music is Amazon Prime. Their audio is has a higher quality than everything else out there, including sattalite. If you play garbage it will sound like garbage, but when you have a high quality source the sound is amazing. This comes from a guy who usually drives a Lexus. 4. Seating position and ergonomics are a nine out of ten. You can actually see out the car and the controls are properly placed. Here is what I don't like. 1. The formula is correct but execution in quality is lacking. Even though this is the first year for the model, there is no excuse for the overall quality. 2. The paint chips easy. 3. Panel fitman in this day should be better. Hood alignment and bumper alignment should be better. 4. Reliability 5. Ford dealerships in my part of town does not have a good service department. I drive my car 30 miles for service when I work less than two miles from a dealership. The experience is a story in and of itself. 6. Heavy clutch pedal 7. Front seats don't cool as well as the should. Only the bottom half cools m Problems I've had. 1. The first week of ownership the car would cut off while drivimg and when I come to a stop. I have it on video and I sent information to my wife and kids in case of a bad accident. I really have to press the dealership in my area, less that two miles to address the issue. Picked up my recently purchased CPO vehicle and before I arrived at home it stopped. Less than 10 miles griven, it was after closing so I was not happy. 2. Clutch pedal liknage issue. Yes the clutch pedal linkage kept coming lose from the pedal. Took a solid week for the dealership to correct this condition. Don't know why. 3. The mirrors and seats have memory position. When I went to get in the car the mirrors would move, lose memory and constantly click. This problem was documented when I got the car and the dealership did not want to fix it. When they did they wanted to charge me and I insist imshould not. Finally the service manager waived the change and stormed off like a child. I was not happy, another word describe how I felt, know what I mean? 4. Leaking valve cover gaskets. Noticed an oil burning smell from under the hood. Also it was leaking on the starter. Covered under warranty, no problem until the service adviser implied someone may have worked on the car looking at me. I immediately told them don't make statements you can't prove. I don't appreciate being falsely accused. This was the last time I used this dealership and henceforth drive 30 miles where I purchase the vehicle and service is great. 6. Door handles replaced under warranty, had to do with the keyless entry. 7. Back up camera filling up with water replaced. 8. Trunk wire harness broke. No camera function. 9. AC evaporator coil leaking and replaced. 10. AC Compressor locked up, replaced under warranty. 11. Drive belt damaged due to locking up compressor. Replaced. That's my life with this car at 32000 miles of ownership. You think there's a quality issue? The things that have been problems are not new technology unique to this vehicle. It's a company issue. I drove the new 2019 mustang and the vehicle feels great and the clutch pedal is light. Based off my current experience cannot justify buying another one. Probably will get a Lexus RC-F.
