2011 Mustang test drives - humble opinion


I like others have been trying to decide what to order. The following are my personal opinions only... with the wife along for validation

2011 V6 automatic, disappointed in the hesitation when the accelerator is pressed to the floor, especially a highway speeds. Made me feel unsure about when the acceleration would start.
2011 V8 automatic, still some noticeable hesitation but a lot better than the V6.
2011 V8 manual with 3.31 axle, nice acceleration from stop but in 6th at highway speeds felt like I would need to downshift to pass a vehicle comfortably or climb a hill with cruise set
2011 V8 manual with 3.73 axle, better acceleration and at highway speeds in 6th felt like it would comfortably pass a vehicle or climb a hill with cruise set.

Surprisingly the wife concurred on findings.:yelpleased:

Final question to be decided... to Brembo on not to Brembo.

Austin, Tx
