mb19 5pts I realize this is an old review, but really, it is quite clear this was weighted to make the Mustang seem competitive. First, the article compares a stock Accord Coupe EX-L V6 to the Mustang V6 Premium WITH the optional track package. A more equivalent comparison would have been to get the Accord with the HFP wheel and tire and sport suspension option -- this gives the Accord 245/40-19 tires and a firmer suspension together with approximately 1 inch lower stance, reducing wheel hop and improving handling. The article handwaves the quality issue -- and of course, we now know 2 years down the road that the V6 Mustangs have had serious quality issues, including the notorious broken axle problem due to Ford using too light an axle for the car in an effort to keep the MPG numbers up. That's why the V6 Mustang has a 112mph limiter. Not only that, but Ford has been fudging MPG numbers -- as the article acknowledges in a somewhat backhanded way. You have to read closely to notice. That's why the V6 Mustang has a 112mph limiter. The manual transmission in the V6 Mustang has also demonstrated quality problems. All in all, a rather disappointing review if objectivity rather than a false "balance" is desired.
