Just want everyone to know, that I did not in anyway, wrongfully abuse or mishandle this Mustang or transmission since It has been in my possession. I know that I am the 3rd owner to the vehicle and clutch seems pretty solid and new for someone inexperienced trying to learn on. I am experienced myself when it comes to manual trans and prefer over any automatic. I have been driving manuals since I was 17 years old I am now 34. Here are some of my previously owned cars.
1987 Toyota Supra (5 speed manual) sold at 279k miles after the engine died
1990 Nissan 300zx (5 speed manual) 33k miles traded at 56k with the Mazda for GTO
2004 Mazda MX-5 Mazdaspeed Edition (6 speed manual) 19k miles, traded in with 42k
2005 Poniac GTO (6 speed manual) 22k traded in at 79k for a Scion after economy collasped
2007 Scion TC TRD edition (5 speed manual) 39k miles traded at 156k for Mustang GT
Have to say, out of all the cars I owned in the past. I have never before had a manual transmission with any troubles. For this to be at next to new condition car, is completely unacceptable as far as quality goes. This is the most expensive car I ever paid for and proves to be the most unreliable. I am a first time Ford owner and I now just leave this car parked in my garage and sit at the house drinking, thinking about the time I really wanted a new mustang... and I got one alright!
