Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Ford Mustang V6

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Ford Mustang V6

Recaro Cloth Seats, Like a Form-Fitting Lazy-Boy

The Cloth Recaro racing seats, a $1,595 option, hug you in all the right spots. Forcing you to sit upright, they hold your back straight, improving your posture, which helps visibility. Seated in the Mustang, you feel like you’re looking out of a cave and the Recaro seats are hugging you like a bear who’s just found a new toy.

In hard corners they hold your body in place perfectly and yet, somehow, are comfortable enough to make even a whole day behind the wheel a relaxing one.

    I love the new headlights on the Mustang. You’re nuts if you think it doesn’t handle well. I’ve driven one with the track pack and it blew me away!
     And personally I still find the V6 slightly underwhelming.

    Why did you put your cell phone and iPod in the cup holder? There is a compartment right behind the cup holder for these items and it even has a USB port.

  • The compartment is also the arm-rest. Retrieving anything out of it while driving is a feat of acrobatics. The cup-holders are the only functional, at-hand storage, and therefore become the first place for items like that.

    I have the 2012 v6 w/o the performance package. This I must say is the best “first sports car” to own. You can always upgrade to a GT or shelby or any other muscle later. 

  • I have always wanted a Mustang and currently have a family and a mortgage. I got a V6 and compare to my frontier i have had for the last 11 years, it is a porsche. This car is amazing and so much fun to drive on date nights with the wife. I will keep this until i am gray and old.
