For comparison, the 2007 Mustang was 8 major repairs per 100 vehicles at an average milage of 28,000.

Average milage before major repair - Ford Mustang:

2005: 60,700
2006: 42,800
2007: 28,300
2008: 21,800
2010: 12,800
2011: 6,200
Sorry, just came across this thread. A correction to the OP: those are the average odometer readings of the cars at the time of the survey, not the odometer at the time of a major repair. This is why they get higher the older the car.

Also, we count all repairs, not just major ones.

38 repair trips per 100 cars was close to the average, and the stat has improved since then. The 2010 has required more repairs than the 2011, but is nevertheless still not far from the average.

2011 GT MT-82 and only minor issues so far at 11k miles (pass seat motor which I still haven't taken in to get fixed and a nail in a tire which took out the $253 pirelli at 8k miles). I guess that's the only complaint I have with the car!!!! I love the car and happy with it

Built june 16 2010 - purchased new oct 2010

My thoughts exactly. I'm a member (?) of your site, and the '11 Mustang seems relatively problem-free. It seems the OP here REALLY hates the Mustang, although I couldn't tell you why. My car has somewhere around 14k miles, now, still with no problems or issues at all.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how one looks at it) The OP will never see the correction....

But thanks anyways

Thanks for correcting. I for the first time just visited Truedelta, and I think it's interesting that only "successful" repairs are reported. Which would mean the 2(insert extremely thick sarcasm) people that were told their issue was a "normal characteristic" are not included..... in the end, YMMV.

I think they are fairly reliable on the whole but I must admit that my anecdotal experience has affected my perceptions. I'm trying to get over that but after dealing with a loose Pressure plate, bubbling paint, ticking engine and a 50/50 chance of using 1st gear, it's left a bad taste in my mouth.

From now on I will always practice what I preach and "never buy first model year" again.
