my 2014 just arrived

The last eta I received for my mustang was 02/23, so I happened to be driving by the ford dealership today, and thought I would drive through just in case my new car happened to be sitting there. Dealership's aren't open in Indiana on Sunday's so I knew if it had been delivered I wouldn't have got a call.

So I drove through the whole lot and just as I turn the corner my headlight catches a shiny blue object up against the fence, slightly hidden by an F150

Thanks, I'm totally stoked. Its filthy as hell, but I'm sure they'll clean it up tomorrow. Bad thing is I work all week, so scheduling a time to get it will be tricky, but I think I can make it work.

I think the wheels and grill that come with the MCA package sets the car off.

I don't know how much you've read up on them, surprised you didn't ask how I knew lol.

Enjoy it, I've enjoyed mine so far.

I've read that some people have had a few issues with them, and they're made in China. If I'm not mistaken the exhaust tips are different on the automatic models, so thats probably how you could tell. If not, I'm clueless.

Yeah.

It's not that they're made in China. It's the fact sub-par bearings and synchros were used in their assembly. No idea where or how Ford sourced them, but QC with them must be bad.

I'm hoping for no issues with mine, Have you had any problems with yours? From the reviews I've read people either had issues and hated them, or absolutely loved them.

It's normally fine in warm weather. I have occasionally gotten 3rd gear lock-out during spirited driving. Supposedly a shifter bracket fixes that, as well as smoothing up the shifts. I intend to get one eventually.

In cold weather, I take my time as it's notchy at times.

Is it just the picture or is your antenna missing? It just looks like a nub.

Before you take deliver it's in the glove box, or in the trunk like mine was along with the lug locks and the other extras.

+1

In this cold weather, 5 and 6 synchros really grind for me. In spirited driving the other day, it was locking me out like crazy, it doesn't like shifting 2nd to 6, or a lot of downshifting.

Welcome aboard and congrats on the new Mustang.

For the record, the automatic trans has had a TSB issued to correct the problem; they replaced the trans fluid with full synthetic. It has seemed to correct the problem with most, unless they had the problem, did not take it in, and did some damage with the hard shifts before getting the problem corrected.

And nothing wrong with automatics. Your new, so you'll soon find out we try to be different on this site and not to disrespect anyones choice in options.

Welcome aboard!

Is your rear decklid panel the same color as your car or is it just the picture?

Thanks everyone for the compliments, I am super excited to pick her up. I appreciate all the information on the manual transmissions, it's still cold here in Indiana so I am sure I will get to experience what you folks are discussing

Bucko I just wanted to let you know that I wasn't disrespecting anyone's choice to own an automatic just expressing my own preference in owning a manual. My 71 duster is an automatic, it doesn't deduct from the car any. I am new here but I am involved in many other forums, and I just want to say that disrespecting other members view points isn't something I do.

Mylittlepwny, I am signing all the paperwork in the morning, I'd be happy to let you know how much out the door I gave!!

Thanks!!!

Someone here may know more than I do but I don't think anything else has changed, I haven't uncovered anything in research I have done anyways.
