We got a good deal on our new 2018 Lightning Blue Metallic 2.3 Ecoboost Mustang. I'm 56, retired/disabled, & have always wanted a new sports car. I had approval on either a 2018 Camaro or a 2018 Mustang. Both were within a $1,000.00 in price, but even though the Camaro had a few extra features, that the Mustang didn't have, i.e. Sirius/XM, touch screen, I decided I had to have the Mustang. The 2.3 liter has more than enough HP for me. The exhaust makes it sound like it's a much larger engine, when you put your foot into it. And because of the turbo, & gearing, it takes you on down the road quickly. The rear seats, are pretty much just for looks, or very small children. But Hey, IT'S A SPORTS CAR! NOT A FAMILY CAR. At the time of this post(2/26/18), I've only had it a little over a month, with just over 500 miles. So there's still time to adjust.
I love coming to stop lights because the sound of this engine is like a race car every time I get to go. I?ve never considered owning another Mustang since my 1966 until I drove this 2018 GT V8. It looks great both inside and out and handles very well. Quality materials. My only gripe is the controls for the seat heating is easier to select then the car climate. It?s confusing and not intuitive to lift up on a dial to change the temperature. Also, it?s easy to get lost using the steering controls when navigating the screen options. The color codes made no sense at all with one letter and digit for changing colors. Did they run out of space to spell things? I prefer the updated look of this Mustang to the Camaro (too boxy) and the Dodge Charger (still looks like a 1970 car with ridiculous LED rear end). The toggle switches are fun and my favorite is the Drag Strip mode. This car is a blast to drive, and the pony lights outside the doors are a nice touch!
My LCD panel on my 2018 Mustang GT went out in February. Purchased my vehicle in December. Ford told me part is on backorder and will not be available until April. I was given Ford Edge as my loaner - go figure. I asked if I could get comparable Mustang GT while it will take two months to get my brand new GT back and was told they couldn't do this. I have escalated to Ford Executive Offices because this just isn't right. I'm a first time Ford owner of this vehicle and needless to say this will be the last time I purchase a Ford. I am so unhappy with all that has transpired. Just thought I would warn all consumers of 2018 Ford Mustang GT's.
Lightning Blue Metallic, that is. Love my 2018 Ford Mustang. The 2.3 liter Ecoboost with a 10 speed automatic tranny is plenty for me. Just turned 56, & retired, & wanted a pony to play with. Got a great deal, & had to have it. The 18 inch Machined Aluminum Low Gloss Black wheels look awesome. To help it look great for a long time, I went ahead & had the dealership(Ruxer's Ford) apply Simoniz Glasscoat inside & out.
I traded a 98 Mustang gt California Special for a 2015 3.7 v6 10/14. I enjoyed it but I upgraded to a Mustang 2017 gt premium 4/17. I love this car good acceleration good braking, good features. I'll probably add some accessories to it now( performance pack 3). Fun car to drive.
