Best bang for your buck

nteresting car. Car still has its original tires and the original battery and wiper blades were changed out in 2013. I bought this auto trans car from the original owner back in 2011 with 6k original miles. It was kept in a garage, covered, still smelled and looked new but it kept killing the battery. I bought it for a song after totaling my 1998 GT but that's another story. Did some research on the electrical problem and found it was common with the early models of this generation. Solution? 1. Always turn the radio off before turning the key off. 2. ALWAYS connect the battery cables (and jumper cables) positive first and negative last. Always disconnect in the correct reverse order. Why? Parasitic power loss will be around 100mA vs. 30mA. Next problem was the speedo quit working - found that gauge failure was a common problem with these cars. Solution? Pulled the pod myself and shipped it off to a speedo shop that specialized in rebuilding these assemblies - very fair price with a lifetime warranty. Next problem was the leatherette door panels delaminated and flopped over on the armrests. Common problem. Solution? Had them recovered with the same material by a local auto upholstery shop - reasonable price and lifetime warranty. Rear window defroster stopped working recently. Light comes on but no sound from the relay and no window heating - checking into this at the moment. No other issues and thoroughly enjoy driving and owning this car. Next problem was the fuel fill issue that also manifested during 2013. Would only fill half way - another common problem. Found out this car already had the replacement fuel tank. I did several slow fills with the nozzle handle at the 2 o'clock position - problem corrected itself. Had ALL of the fluids changed out last year on its 10th anniversary of first going into service in May of 2005. Use E0 Shell Supreme fuel (has Superchips premium fuel tune with K&N cold air kit). Most factory options and many dealer installed options on this car.

This car is very competitive in the market it's in. Performance it's on par with the others. Interior is better. Priced the cheapest. I love the looks, the handling and driving this car. My faults with it are the small rear seat, small trunk opening, and small fuel tank.

Most reliable car I've ever owned X2

by from AZ on September 6, 2017

I've owned two different 2012 Mustang GTs. Both great reliability and performance. Ford did a great job on these cars. Finally.

Comfort wise, the car was spot on. The dual powered seats gave PLENTY of options as to how you can move them, to any need you may have. All interior instruments were in the right spots for ease of access. Performance and reliability, it's phenomenal. I've had no engine issues whatsoever, the paint is still perfect and it's always parked outside, the interior is in great condition. I've added aftermarket exhaust and a cold air intake and that only enhanced the already great performance. The car just looks mean, and it is.
