Ford is finally back in the running for the title of “Best Bang for the Buck” performance car with their new GT350 and GT350R Mustangs. Does all of that performance come with a decrease in overall build quality? Some posters on Mustang6g think so. Reports and images of runny, dripping, flakey paint and unsightly panel gaps are rolling in. It’s reported that some of these issues existed on the standard 2015 GT as well but most believed/hoped that the $60,000 Shelby might be held to a higher standard. Reports from prior Mustang and Shelby owners say that the paint actually got worse starting with the newly redesigned 2015 Mustang.

Ford is clearly going after a new breed of buyers with this latest car. Will these new owners tolerate the finish and build quality and give up their love for European cars? Online, this is the single biggest reason that other brands are still trash-talking Mustang and the new GT350.
