2012 Ford Mustang

Today NADAguides released their selection of current recommended buys, and the 2012 Ford Mustang was included on the list of nine cars. Vehicles are selected based on an analysis of depreciation value, incentives and rebates, warranty, assistance services and features.

“These nine vehicles offer value and features that many consumers are starting to expect from automotive manufacturers at lower price points,” said Tim Snyder, NASAguides director of product development. “What was previously only available in luxury segment vehicles is now starting to become standard across all types of makes and models. “These features, coupled with a great warranty, additional customer services such as free maintenance, and competitive incentives, are making many new vehicles much more attractive for car buyers.”

The Mustang was selected for its attractive pricing, current incentives and low depreciation. Here’s what NADAguides had to say about the 2012 Mustang.

With a 12% first-year depreciation rate and a competitive price that starts at $22,310 for the coupe. The 2-door convertible Shelby GT500 has a base MSRP of $53,810. Ford offers $500 cash back or 3.9% financing for six years. There is a two-month supply of inventory. The 2012 Ford Mustang has a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty and a five-year, 60,000-mile roadside assistance program. The speed and horsepower of the Mustang make it a great choice for muscle car customers at these prices.

    Well that would be all well and good if the transmissions weren’t falling apart in them. Reports in every forum on the internet are full of complaints over rough shifting, popping out of gear, not being able to get INTO gear, repairs not helping, and replacement parts failing just like originals.

    I have a 2012 Mustang GT with a manual transmission, and after driving a Camaro, a Dodge Challenger, a newer GTO, and several others, I have to say the Mustang GT is far superior. The shifter is a short shift, solid, smooth and fast. The only problem is at hard acceleration the torque overbears on the shifter bracket. This is an easy fix with a new shifter bracket from Ford Racing or the aftermarket. Ford investigated the claims that you are refering to and concluded that severe abuse from street racing and mishandling fromthe drivers were the cause of those damage claims. If you know how to drive stick and you replace the bracket if you are racing, you won’t have a problem. I haven’t.
