I just purchased a 2010 mustang GT with 27k miles on it. I have had it about ten days and clocked about 800miles of "spirited" driving but nothing too crazy. I was wondering if this is a common issue and if the previous owner really ragged on the car. Keep in mind with all this he had installed a hurst short throw shifter and have been driving manuals since I was 13 and know my way around them. I found it unusual that when i first drove the car it required the clutch to be all the way to the floor to start and was wondering if this is a safety device or was a (missed) sign of clutch wear. The dealer i purchased it from was an Acura dealer and offered no sort of warranty on it except the remaining 7 yr powertrain and I know this won't be covered. The Ford dealership I took it into quoted me 2 grand to get it fixed which seems crazy in itself but i also feel it would be stupid to install the same clutch in the vehicle and not go aftermarket with it. Any advice or insight is much appreciated as I'm pretty heartbroken that it is already in the shop.
