This Mustang is really fun to drive. The steering is firm and the car sticks to the ground. The performance is acceptable for a V6 with a manual trans.
The car is easy and fun to drive, but could be a nightmare under heavy rain, since the windshield receives all the water splashes of other cars. Mustang are low...
You better stay away from the snow with this car, mainly because it rusts like a Lada or Renault. Undriveable in a foot of snow...
Ford need to learn a lot about the human physiology and ergonomics... The clutch and brake pedal have too much travel, and are too high. The gas pedal is in the correct location, but heel & toe is barely impossible. The shifter is too far from the driver, and too close to the radio and drink holder... Every time I shift, my knee hits the dash.
Mustang are fun to drive, but they don't like bad weather, and repair cost a lot of money...
It's the funniest car to drive at this price!
I would maybe buy another one...
