saw a 15 today, bit dissapointed

I got to see one today
Take this with a grain of salt, as I know this is a pre production car

Just felt cheep to me, yes the seats more comfortable, but the interior just felt cheep. I am not a fan of the automatic floor shifter, so much cheeper than the 11-14 shifter. I do like the telescoping steering column, but the switches on the dash felt cheep.

The worst thing was when I went to shut the drivers door, I pushed on the window, and it was loose, and felt broken. Not nice and sturdy like on my 2011

Yes this is a pre production car, so lets just hope this is a fluke

Ford really blew there chance to make a good first impression with me, don't know why these training cars are so poorly equipped, at least put some 19 inch wheels on them

Haven't had a chance to see one yet. I'll probably reserve judgement until I see a production one.

You closed the door by pushing on the glass!? Bad! Bad man!

Im sure the pre production cars have been through a lot more than your standard mustang. Id wait a few more months. I cant wait to check one out when they show up at dealers.

LOL I do sometimes push on the glass, I'm a bad boy

I can't imagine that car has gone through any what close to what mine has. 40,000 miles, winters, Boston Pot holes, the drag strip doing10 second quarter mile runs. I bet a few runs down the strip is more than that thing ever will see

If there going to have demo cars, at least equip them a little better

If they made it look a little more like the front end and hood of the 2013-2014 with the rear of the 2005-2009 GTs along with the powertrain and interior of the 2011-2014 GTs would have me sold (note I said like them, not a chop shop looking deal). The 2015 missed the mark of a Mustang IMO.

I sat in an Ecoboost Premium last week and I have to say I was very impressed with the fit and finish inside. While this still had M plates (at a dealer for training), it was extremely well finished, inside and out.

called the dealer, and cancelled my order
It's to bad, as I bleed Ford Blue. Have owned close to 20 Fords, and was so excited to get this new Mustang. But when I saw one yesterday was so disappointed

Not nearly what I had hoped for, so cheep, and just didn't feel like a mustang should. Got a feeling, my feelings may not be unique, and it won't sell like Ford Hopes. Bet there will be a quick redesign

Depends on the attitude you go in there with. If you go in there thinking it will be cheap crap, your mind will only tell you it's cheap crap.

Personally, I haven't sat in one yet, but I'm imagining the interior treatment to be similar to the current car...which is fine because I like the current car's interior.

I went there so excited after hearing everyone say its better in person, than in the pics. So I went there thinking it was going to be a step in quality, but my first impressions just were not what I had expected

I have owned close to 20 Fords and wanted to love it, but just wasn't

See, thats where Ford is screwed no matter what they do, not everyone is going to be happy.

I would have said with the front end/hood of the 2011-2012, the rear of the 2013-2014 and the 2011+ interior (we agree there) and I would have been hooked.
