Son is getting a 2019 Mustang Gt California Pkg

I only post this, because after test driving the car Saturday, holy crap it sounds amazing, has a really nice interior and looks pretty good outside too. I was a non fan until we looked at this set-up.

We looked at a non Cal Pkg and it was not even close, they really stepped it up with the Cali Pkg and again the sound is amazing, Active Exhaust with 4 levels of loud. Even the new Digital Dash is really nice.

I would like that interior in the ZL1. Then I would have my perfect car.

Nice car, I usally don't get why people hating each others cars. Mustang has pretty good daily driver qualities, while I think the Camaro is the better performance car.

The only things I really don't like about Mustangs is the cheap build quality (take a look for huge gaps between bumper and headlights on the refresh and seats that wear out way too fast), SYNC3 user Interface is looking like a Fisher Price tablet and that you can't set up how in what mode your car should start. Every time you start the car the exhaust note is back in normal mode

Well , unfortunately all three, Mustang, Camaro and Challenger, are behind in build quality and reliability as compared to the industry's main stream autos that cost thousands less. The Challenger is actually rated the highest in those categories, but its also traded in the quickest. The Mustang is rated the lostest of the three, but all three need improvement especially for what they cost.

Fake side scoop?

I loved my 2016 GT except for some stuff. I am sure he will have fun.

The exhaust of the 2015-2017 sucked BIG TIME. But I agree the refresh sound really nice!

Not a fan of this gen of Mustang at all, can't wait to see the next gen, hopefully it's not as ugly and performs better.

I just traded my 2017 Camaro 2LT for a base 2018 GT. I am not and have never been a Mustang fan but after the transmission problems with my Camaro and test driving 3 brand new Camaros and a used C7- that all did not drive right or there was a problem with, I started looking at other makes. Plain and simple, the GT- and mine is BASE, I bought brand new for a little over 30K, 6.5 less than my Camaro. And oh yeah after that horrible A8 in the Camaro I got a 6 speed manual. I love the car- not because it's a Mustang because it does everything it's supposed to do- drives and tracks straight, everything works, it shifts great, sounds great, etc. But there will always be a sweet spot for Camaros that I will always have and I turn my head for every one that I see on the road.

Congrats- the GT California edition is a nice car!

Wait, you had A8 trouble then bought a Mustang with an MT82 tranny? Yikes. The MT82 is what kept me away from the BOSS 302's.

The one thing I'm envious of the Mustangs is their sound. For whatever reason, the Camaro team decided to tame the sound down so much that you don't know you have a V8, soundwise, unless you're on it.

Never really understood the hate between Camaro and Mustang, they are both great cars IMO. Your son is going to love the new ride and it looks great, Congrats to him.
