I'm having issues with my Mustang, and I don't even have it yet!

I'm having issues with my Mustang, and I don't even have it yet! - Blog

A few months ago I posted two blog posts detailing my dilemma; should I buy a Kia Stinger GTS or should I buy another Ford Mustang GT? In the end I put a deposit down on a Mustang GT and its glorious new MagneRide suspension, as I had received an amazing discount that made all the difference. Plus, who doesn’t love a snorting V8?

The car was supposed to arrive September of this year, as exported Mustangs are built to order rather than kept in stock as in the U.S of A. Thus, imagine my dismay, sadness and blood boiling anger when I received a phone call from my dealership this morning informing me that Ford Corporate has cancelled my order, he doesn’t know why and he isn’t sure if I can transfer my order to a MY19 car. I am awestruck.

My car doesn’t physically exist and I’m already having issues with it. How does that even work?

To add more insult to the injury it appears as though other UK customers soon after I opened the floodgates have had the same unpleasant conversation with their dealer, if the Mustang forums are to be believed.

If I cannot have my order transferred to a MY19, or if said MY19 has a noticeable price hike, it looks like I may have to cancel my order outright and start considering the Stinger GTS once more. That’s no bad thing, of course, as a tune can push it up to 400 horses at the wheels with little effort and its a drool-bucket on wheels.
