2015 Ford Mustang GT: Off the Hook

December 22, 2014

2015 Ford Mustang GT

Coupes with rear seats generally suffer from a common but minor annoyance, and that's placement of the front seatbelts. With a long door to allow passengers access to the back seats, the front seatbelt has to be anchored further back as well.

Some carmakers will put a buttoned strap on the front seat to keep the seatbelt from returning all the way back, preventing a long and awkward reach to grab it. Some luxury vehicles have a motorized seatbelt presenter that puts the belt within easier reach.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT has this chunky plastic hook and it doesn't work very well. More often than not, the seatbelt slips out of the hook, forcing me to groan like an old man and fish around for it. Is it a dealbreaker? Of course not. I freaking love Mustangs and the joy of having one back in the fleet makes me positively giddy.

If I didn't think there'd be some sort of safety-related issue, I'd fashion some sort of simple fix for this. So unless I get the go-ahead to bodge something together, I'll just have to console myself with burnouts and powerslides.
