I purchased a performance package GT convertible in January. The exterior body panels were not bonded correctly by the roller at the factory causing noticeable creases at the edges of the trunk, passenger door and hood. The car has been reviewed by the dealer and 2 body shops and all agree this is a factory defect. Problem is that FORD CORPORATE says it is NOT their problem. Dealer is working with me to correct the poor workmanship but I am concerned that after the trunk, door and hood panels are all reworked and repainted that the value of the car will be depreciated. FORD should just take this car back and give me the straight car I paid $44k for.
Love my Mustang Ecoboost Convertible! Power and acceleration is probably good for most people. But I wanted a bit more power for hills I drive. I was able to make some easy modifications to improve power. Next step is upgraded turbo. Looks great, good visibility for a sports car and I find the convertible very enjoyable. Car driver's car.
I have owned my 2016 GT Premium California Special convertible (Oxford White) for 6 months now and every day I just look forward to driving it...especially with the top down! It has the 6 speed automatic with 3.55 LS Rear Axle, Nav, Adaptive Cruise Control, Reverse Sensing Safety system....well everything except the "Performance Package" which you can't get with the automatic transmission. Acceleration is awesome! Simply put, it looks GREAT, drives GREAT and sounds GREAT. No problems or regrets so far...This is the first vehicle built by an "American" manufacturer that I have purchased since 1985! Toyota and Honda (and a number of Mazda Mx-5s) have been and still are in my driveway, however I love this Mustang! Funny story...I rented a 2016 Ford Expedition for a week and was soo impressed with the quality and performance of the big Ford, I had to go drive the new Pony Car! Word of advice: Don't test drive one if you don't want to own one! This is a 1 year UPDATE to the original review of my Mustang GT/CS Premium Convertible. Simply put, I love it as much as the day I bought it! It is my recreational "sunny day" driver so most of the 6500 miles are top down at the beach or open country roads or Blue Ridge Parkway. People still want to get a closer look at it or ask about it when I stop for gas or at a stop light! It is everything I expected it to be...Looks GREAT, sounds awesome, handles like a sports car and takes off like a jet! Top quality and no issues or concerns after a year and a half. GREAT CAR!!
OK just a quick update from my previous review: So the dealer found the cause of the rear end noise, it was Lungnuts rolling around where the spare tire would be if there was one. The car has locking lungs on it so, someone put the spare lungnuts in trunk. Boy was I releaved! It has been a week since I purchased the Mustang and I have to say "It is my Dream Car"! It drives great & handles amazingly well. It was warm enough to put the top down...what a great day cruzing.
I have the eco-boost four cylinder turbo mustang convertible in magnetic. The car is extremely comfortable and has excellent technology with the *NSYNC navigation and especially the Bose shaker system! The car is incredibly fast and when I go on long trips I'm getting 31 miles per gallon! It corners amazingly well and I'm 6 foot five and have plenty of room even be even being a pretty big guy. I decided not to have the spoiler on the back and as a result it looks very executive and has line similar to the old Mustang combined I guess with a Jaguar. I know a lot of the purists believe only in the V8 but trust me when you put the pedal to the metal on this thing and it goes from 40 to 80 in seconds!
