Personally, I'm incredibly surprised that FORD did not make it a point to discuss and open up about what exactly they did/change to improve the MT82 6 speed over previous model years!

There has been numerous complaints about the '11, '12, '13' and 14' and ALL were the dreaded crunch/gear clash with this tranny, so I would have though best way to reassure customers is to openly explain whatever changes ( in detail) they commenced with regarding the MT82.

PM Deysha regarding this issue is an OK idea... but a way better approach is for FORD as a whole to inform it's customer base what these supposed changes are... Deysha is the best thing since sliced bread, and has been an amazing presence on these forums, however this type of info should be coming from the mother ship.

Sweeping 4 model mustang years under the rug concerning these focused complaints is a terrible way to address a serious complaint that has been ongoing since the MT82 first appeared in '11 model years!
2 aspects that will hold be back from giving FORD an open cheque for a 2015 GT are; immediate front end looks horrible, but more importantly, the same old MT82 is again being undermined!

2011 GTCS Candy Red;Premium leather interior package, Remote start, security package, upgraded speakers, 6MT 3:55. 35% tint all around, Borla "S" axle backs, & clear corners.
The rest is all FORD
