    Hmm, wonders if Ford finally ditched the noisy arse throwout bearing that was prominent in ALL 05-09 V6's. I used to test drive new Fords for Pre-delivery. The V6's ALWAYS had really noisy T-O bearing versus the GT's. GT's were quiet, while I could hear all that noise come through the V6 shifter bezel.

    I have never been a fan of the V6 mustangs, for good reason I think, but this new one appears to be an entirely different animal. I could see one in my future.

    I always thought they looked well....wimpy. The narrow tires didn't help. I did own a 95 V-6 (ex's car) but I kind of enjoyed driving it at times.
    The new one is damn fine car, noone should be ashamed to have one.
