if your considering canceling your order.. DONT!

I just want to express to all those who are waiting for your 2011 mustang GT. I waited over 3 months and did consider canceling my order. Well i got my GT thursday and wow! All i can say is ford did an amazing job on this car and I will always buy a ford (well i will always anyways since my father works for ford)
But the power that car produces over the previous models is very impressive. Even the interior is changed around. The dash is small, which i love because previous mustang, the dashes were just way to big and plain. This new dash is almost like the dash in the new taurus.

I have gotten so many compliments about this car. even from 2010 mustang GT owners saying "damn i should of waited a year for this one"



Also. Ford has changed around there quality program. Before if it was a minor defect, they would usually just send the part to the dealer and have the dealer fix it before you took ownership of it. Well now ford does not do that. My dads exact words to me after his plant changed the quality program "Ford does not release junk like those foreign companies" And knowing this, i am proud to be buying American products.

So if your considering canceling Don't. Because this car is soooo worth the wait.

Thanks for posting this, especially about the quality improvement program. It makes sense now why there are holdups.

It reminds me when I bought my 06. Many could not get the 05's because of allocation issues. I was one of them and had to reorder.
So it took me about 6 months to get one.

Hang in there.

I more than understand ford motor co quality improvement program. I am an hourly uaw worker at the engine plant in dearborn. The quality inspection that we do every our is so redundant that it seems ridiculous.

I have considered several times to cancel my order and just get one from the dealership. Its hard to deal with when u pre order so u can be the first one to have one or knowing that your summer will be over soon and u didn't even get a chance to enjoy the car before storage.



Sorry about the rant and thanks for the encouraging post

Appreciate the insight but the post is just a bit biased, no?

Honda and Toyota (those foreign companies) don't sell millions of cars because they're junk. And Ford didn't lose market share for years because their cars were better.

I hope that this new quality program results in not just "the best Fords ever" but "the best automobiles ever." I was impressed with the '11 Mustang enough to buy a new one even though I swore I'd never buy a NEW Ford again. So maybe I'm a convert.

I second what you are saying. I also waited over 3 months, and considered cancelling. I got my car a few days ago, and have managed to get 300 miles on it so far. I've gone over the car with a fine tooth comb, looking for any kind of problem or defect. So far it is checking out 100%. The car is absolutely amazing, the performance and build quality is right up there with comparable models from Europe and Japan.

Just for the record. the new JD Power quality rankings just came out. Ford (5th) beat Honda (6th) and Toyota(21st). The only cars better than Ford were Mercedes, Accura, Porche & Lexus, all big buck cars. Ford and Lincoln were the only American brands in the top 10.
