Ford Mustang Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Ford Mustang reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Ford Mustangs with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Ford Mustangs that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Ford Mustang lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Ford Mustang has been recently.

Over 40 years of continous history much of it record breaking and very colourful. It defined the early pony car and survived fuel crunchs, tightening emission standards and downsizing (mustang II) while its competitors died. see full Ford Mustang review

I see way too many of these things around. Most are the V6 variant which is just sad. I really feel like the wide variety of engines and packages dilutes the Mustang brand too much. I really think it is a poser car. see full Ford Mustang review
