What is the Mustangs missing ?

What is the Ford Mustang missing? What has Ford left out or could have improved? I am sure all you passionate people have some idea or suggestion or even solutions to the problems that the mustangs are facing. Well why not be the consumers who are not just mere consumers but actively participate in the creation of the new products by telling the companies what they want. What better way then to tell Ford what the Mustang is missing and what it should be having. Well go ahead and post your solutions and ideas with images and video feeds on Ideawicket (Ideawicket - Open Innovation Portal) and see what others have to say about it through comments and rating. Be Heard!!

Dude! Right on, I've always liked the Stangs, I wish they would bring back a Boss 429 version....not likely.

Idk, but mid 13s stock from factory ain't too shabby for a car priced around 30k.

I still think it needs 30 to 50 hp. Performance for the GT is still ballpark to the 99-01 Cobras and 03-04 Mach I. I would like some "spread" between the older models and the current one.

Re: What is the Mustangs missing ?

The part I feel is "wrong" is the setup on the hydraulic clutch. It never feels consistent and there is no way to "service" it without potentially ingesting air into the system. The fact it shares the brake reservoir as a supply is simply stupid. A Mustang is built to go fast and stop fast, this puts some duty on the brake fluid. Putting some better quality fluid in there from the factory may have helped, but ultimately the setup is horrible and should be re-worked.
