2015 Ford Mustang GT: Awkward Dipstick Location
by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on December 8, 2015
Our 2015 Ford Mustang GT wins the award for the most awkwardly placed dipstick of this model year. There it is on the right, tucked down beneath the strut tower brace. The dipstick pulls out about 3 inches before it must be bent significantly to circumvent its neighbors.
Once out, the dipstick is clear enough to read. But the extraction process remains a bit of a chore, as does the return trip to its sleeve. I should add that this problem is unique to GTs with the performance package. Access is not a problem for the other available Mustang engines, including the 5.0-liter models without it.
