Is there any problem?

Hello guys, I'm from Brazil. I'm ordering a 2013 Mustang GT with track package.
With all the taxes I will pay around U$85.000,00 (yes, here in Brazil we are all ****ed with super high taxes). Now the important part of the thread: my city have around 300.000 people, the average car here costs around U$20.000,00, but dont think it is even close to a V6 U$22.000,00 mustang, the 20 granny car we have here are I4 1.0 liters 70hp cars, with not even air bags, example:http://garagem83.com/wp-content/uplo...ol-g5-2010.jpg. Yes we are ****ed up. In my city have 3 Camaro 2SS that costs exactly U$92.500,00. A brand new Mustang GT here will be one of the most awesome car over all city. But I need to know: The MT82 have problems in the 2013? Because the warrant dont cover another countries and if I need another transmission for a very rare car like a mustang, I will need to wait like 3+ months and pay 4+ times the price it costs there in the USA. I need to know, if I take care of the car (using good fuel, oil, fluids, etc), I wont have problems with it?

For curiosity, I live in Criciúma, Santa Catarina, Brazil
some pics of my city:
Here you can see average cars in the city:

Truth is, you car buy a brand new car drive it for two days and something could fail on the car , this is something you should think about epically if the car is not going to be covered by a warranty .

Rm360 is right... You never no what can happen, are you purchasing your mustang threw a ford dealership in Brazil? As of the mt82 transmission i dont see a reason why it would give you any problems, they might of refined it for 2013. I have 17500km on my 2012 and the only issue the transmission has is that it is alittle stif and clunky when its cold in the morning, but as soon as it warms up it shift perfectly

Luckily in Brazil I'm sure u won't see cold weather... in the cold is when these transmissions are clunky... I got lucky I guess, I've had my car for 1 year and have 5k miles and never changed the fluid yet and no problems at all... I think the newer builds come with better fluid... mine was built Nov 2010

Re: Is there any problem?

I live in the south part of Brazil. In the winter, the temperature can reach 5 - 10 celsius (42-50 fahrenheit). 42 F is cold enough to make the transmission clunky?
And i buying it from USA, 3 months of shipping and 110% of the car value in taxes. That comes to another question: Our gasoline here is 88 octane. The car can run with 88 octane? We have ''podium'' gas too, that is 96 octane. But the price of the 88 octane is U$5,50 per gallon and the 96 octane is U$6,80. There is a considerable difference between the two. I wanna know if the 88 oc fuel will damage the engine or something like that. Thanks guys

It wont damage the engine but the car wont run at its full potential... in advertisements it say 412 HP and in small letters it was say using 93 premium octane...

88 octane is fine, as long as we're talking about the (R+M)/2 method. Min octane is 87 (R+M)/2 but you won't see the full 412HP unless you run 93 (R+M)/2 octane.
Your MT82 should be good in those temps. May be a bit clunky in the old weather but should be ok I'd put AMSOil MTG or Redline MTL in from the start for good measure.

PS - your English is fine, better than half the idiots that live in America.

The gasoline here is E20, there's 20% etanol in it, so it wont work right? I just searched in my city, there is a gas station that sells ''premium'' fuel (91 oc) dont have etanol and costs U$6,00 the galon. I think I will use that one... about the oil, I think it will be a little hard to find here, I will just buy it from ebay thanks guys

I order AMSOIL products directly from them. Sign up for their preferred customer program and you will save a few bucks too.

Re: Is there any problem?

It's all about the taxes. We produce some cars, like the Honda city 1.8. Some stay in brazil for U$30.000,00, and some are imported to Argentina and are sold there for U$20.000,00, just ridiculous. And by Brazil laws, we can just import cars from another countries if they are 0km (like the mustang I ordering) or if the car is 30 year old in good condition (collection vehicle). For any car imported, there is around 110% the original vehicle value in taxes. A brand new Ferrari 458 Italia costs around U$700.000,00 here, there is one in my city with red paint, its so beaultiful . My dream is complete my mechanical engineering college (its 5.5 years long, I am in the third year) and get off this **** country. And aboult the roads here, in the past they were horrible with many holes in the middle of the road and things like that... but now we dont have this kind of problems anymore and my mustang will be a weekend car. Here in Brazil, the girs just love a guy with a good car, they just fall for a guy driving a Civic SI (U$45.000,00 here), imagine now a Mustang with a big V8 engine

I ordering a manual Premium GT with track package, glass roof and red race paint. So lovely
