FORD MUSTANG Used Car Review

The Ford Mustang was officially imported to Australia in 2015 after the legendary American sports car became a global model for the first time in its 50-year history. (Local engineering company Tickford, however, did briefly convert some Mustangs to right-hand drive in 2001.) Available in both coupe and convertible body styles, and with a turbocharged four-cylinder providing a more fuel-efficient alternative to the traditional V8, the Mustang quickly established itself as Australia's sports car. A mid-2018 update introduced changes such as revised styling, an uprated V8 and a new 10-speed auto.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: FORD MUSTANG (2015 ON)

The first check with any Mustang is to try to find out who used to own it and how it was driven.

These are performance cars, so they're likely to have been driven quickly. However, 'driven quickly' and 'driven carelessly' are two very different things.

Take any prospective purchase for a drive at highway speeds and accelerate - listening and feeling for vibrations from the driveline. Some Mustangs have driven their owners mad trying to trace and eliminate these vibes, and some cars just seem worse than others.

Check that the panels are aligned properly as this has been another customer gripe even when the cars were brand new. Take a close look at the panels in bright daylight to see if the colour on the metal parts matches that on the plastic bits.

A batch of cars built across a few months in 2015 and 2016 had a lack of clearance between the wiring loom and the exhaust system. In extreme cases, this could start a fire in the wiring. Ford issued a recall to address this problem.
