Well I am not so angry anymore now because the general manager of the dealership did the right thing today. He refunded me what I paid the dealership then he paid out of pocket for the tax title and license that the government took from me. So it was a bad experience waiting four months and my car arrives and gets damaged and I choose not to take it because they would not give me a discount considering I would be accepting a repaired car before even driving one mile in it. However I got to leave with my self respect and my money back in full so I am happy now. For now I am not sure I still want a Mustang anymore, I have become very sour from this experience. My stupid mind is considering a 2019 Camaro SS in Riverside Blue a little. I will not make a car purchase now because soon there will be new models from many companies and I have a suspicion the Mustang GT will get another face lift for 2020 which would be the last year for the S550 and you know Ford usually makes another face lift for the last model year of a platform. I just hope they make the style more conservative like the 2015 model
Sounds to me like the dealer while the caused some very unforunate and stressful events always did the right thing for you. More than I would have thought to be honest. I have bought to many cars over the years and not all my issues were worked out this well and some not even at all... I would consider you very lucky.
My only advice is don't make a decision based on emotion just yet as those decisions normally cost a lot. haha I am a car guy not a Mustang guy. I say that have owning a lot of Mustangs and would admit Mustangs are my favorite car, but I still love all performance cars and have owned and currently own one that is not a Mustang or even a Ford. I say that to say the Camaro and the Mustang while they compete are two very different cars from the way they drive, to blind spots, and so much more. Before you pull the trigger drive whatever car it is and make sure it works and try to take emotion of what happened out of the mix.
Plenty of other dealers to buy from if you go the Mustang route, but note the things that happened as stated by other members above could happen at any Ford dealer or any brand dealer for that matter no matter what route you go.
As far as Ford changing the body that is unknown really. Ford has been very unpredictable lately with body changes, motor/trans
changes, and changes in general. They used to be very predictable, but not so much in the past 10ish years.
The GT500 coming only in auto trans
now worries me this could be a near whole line change as Ford is really proud of the auto trans
. The industry as a whole seems to be going that way as well. So just something else to consider if you like manuals over auto.
