An association of car parts, moving in the same general direction down the highway
Tensioner pulley went bad at 205,000 miles.
Air conditioning failed at 120,000 miles; repaired.
The Mustang has been incredibly reliable. In 12 years it has only had 2 unexpected repairs to memory - an air conditioner issue and the tensioner pulley failure.
The tensioner pulley even gave me 4 months warning before it failed (increased noise), and the morning of the day it failed, it started yelling at me. Talk about fair warning.
However, it is quite dicey to handle in the rain. Does not inspire confidence at all when it is wet outside, even with the wimpy V6. It is utterly predictable in the dry though.
Also, the front seats won't lay back beyond 45 degrees.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
