Purchased As New
I purchased my 2013 Mustang GT coupe right out of the showroom back in August while trading in my 2005 Mustang GT. I now have roughly 5,900 miles on it and it's already been back to the dealership twice. The first time was due to a problem with the SYNC system not being able to play music thru the USB drive. It was a very minor issue, but still a hassle and somewhat time consuming for me at the end of the day. I spent about two hours at the dealership while they "reset the software". Ever since that time it's worked flawlessly. Over the course of the past 30-45 days my check engine flashed about 4 times on three different occasions and then went off! It never at any point stayed illuminated...just flashed a few times and then disappeared. After the third time of doing this I went back to the dealership and they determined it was a "random misfire", but were unable to pinpoint which cylinder is/was misfiring. I never experienced any drivability issues, loss of power, etc. But I don't know how they consider it “random” when it's happened now three times. Anyway, Ford doesn't yet have a fix other than to reset something else, (I think it’s called the PCM) in hopes that it solves the problem. The Service Tech I was working with showed me a 2011 5.0 that was on the lift next to mine getting an entire new engine installed and made a comment like “thank God that’s not yours”! Yeah, no kidding. Both issues I’ve experienced are very minor in the grand scheme of things but still concerns me about what the future might hold for this car…like maybe it’s a little window in to what I can expect over the long term. Who knows? Other than that the car is awesome. In terms of power, braking and handling it is worlds apart from my former `05 GT. The two aren’t even in the same league. I got the 2013 in Deep Impact Blue metallic with the Brembo brake package. I always receive lots of positive comments from people about how much they love the color and the rims. The six speed transmission is awesome too! It took some getting used to after driving five speeds my whole life. The black leather interior is great and the cabin's fit & finish is much improved over the `05. I love this car, and would recommend it to anyone. However I just keep my fingers crossed that I don’t have to deal with any more little glitches like the ones I just mentioned. Hopefully the bugs have all been worked out…
