Shame on me.I did not drive one of these cars before i bought one.I would give this car back if i could and i have tried.Looks alone do not make a car.I expected better quailty at 28,000 dollars.This 07 has at least 11 issues,all discussed on this forumn.My boss 429 has never leaked water,had suspension issues,rear end niose,or even scratched the window tint.I worked hard for the money to purchase this car.I can see why ford is closing plants.Just not soon enough for me.You can make all the excuses you want,but we all have owned better cars and for less money.
Yikes, what happened man? I'm about to plunk down about that much money on an 07. Was it the dealership's inability to fix it? Please explain!

The only problem I have is keeping it inmy garage. 3 months old and 9000 miles already. I have not had any of the problems that have been posted here, knock on wood! Also have not put it through all the paces yet either; never been over 4.5k on the tach yet, never been over 100mph (2700rpm btw), haven't lit up the tires. I guess it is just too new to me yet. Next spring after it comes back out of storage perhaps.

What are you going to do with this info? customer surveys are worth a lot to manufacturers. I charge $100. to do surveys.

Overall, based on the survey numbers, pretty impressive. I am surprised.

As for me, I have the hood shake but to be fair I have not tried the adjustment suggested here. A couple of little problems with the Shaker 500. Also (ontwo 06 Mustangs, have had these fog-like streaks in the rear windshield - the coupe was fixed by a light tint.) Just noticed it also on my vert today while filling up. Anyone else have this - it only is noticeable in some light conditions. No real major problems after 1400 miles. (Knock on wood...)

Honestly, it is probably premature to say. Nobody has a lot of years or miles on this design. In my own Mustang I have had 4 major problems, 3 required a a tow. Malfuctions that require towing are just unacceptable on a car that has only 2 yeaars and less than 20k miles. My service advisor and I are on a first name basis, she is a nice lady but I would rather not know her so well.

I have had a few minor fit and finish type problems as well.

Only problem so far is a wheel speed sensor went bad. Dealer fixed and no problems since. I haven't had any squeaks, rattles or leaks either. However, the car is only two months old and has 1500 miles. My biggest complaint is from the wife when I say '"Im going for a drive......."

The rear windshield problem is normal. It's polarized glass or something. A lot of cars have it now apparently, but it's kind of annoying IMO.

no problems in the 18000 miles 1.5 years I've had my 08 GT 4.6L except for the occassional knock near the engine bay. I follow the recommended maintenance schedule as well.

you name the problem and I had it, I loved my car though I know plenty of people that had good ones. My car was re-purchased by Ford thru the "Lemon Law" act so make sure you dont buy this one cause its my old one :lol:

you might want to check your alternator. have it checked and make sure its not putting out more than .5 volts in ac. if its more than that replace it your diodes are bad. computer systems dont like ac volts and makes everything freak out. if not it could of just been a glitch with your computer and reseted after that.

Sorry to p#ss you off by telling you that I had no problem with my car yet!
It's an 06 with 50K miles on it.

But Leo, man, it breaks my heart that you had to get rid of yours.

My 2005 Mustang GT was an awesome car. It had just turned 30,000 miles when I sold it. The only real problem I had with it was the throttle body. Started having some issues with it just before I sold it, but my extended warranty covered it, so it was all good!!

Hope I have the same luck with my 2008 GT500 (knocking on wood)!
