Let me first say, I love this car. The things I'm going to point out are nitpicky and aren't enough to sway me away from keeping my car or recommending it as a solid buy for others. But hopefully if Ford is doing ANY sort of continuous improvement, they'll take testing and feedback from customers and make it better.
None of these issues are that big of a deal, but would just be nice if they "fixed" them in future models.
1) It's hard to stomach that I paid significantly more for a car that has less amenities than the GT premium. I don't get "mycolor" which would be nice or things like remote start. Granted, I can live without either and wouldn't use remote start very much given that I live far enough South that I don't need to warm up the car before getting in. There are however a lot of people that like to leave the AC turned on and remote start their car for a minute or two, just so they don't get into a sweltering vehicle. At any rate, the key fob and this feature would cost Ford bean counters virtually nothing, as all the hardware (other than the additional FOB button), sensors, etc, are already on our cars. I understand differentiation with products and creating perceived value, but honestly, it would have been very easy for Ford to incorporate the features of the GT premium at little to no cost.
2) When you remote open the trunk, it blinds you. I've learned this lesson a few times now, so much so that I place my hand in front of my eyes when I pop the trunk in the dark. The taillights work great and the car flashes them RIGHT in your face when the trunk pops. Then you're temporarily blinded while you try to find an appropriate spot to lift the trunk.
3) The seats. The Recaros are awesome. Love them. But there's a tradeoff. Spend more than 20 minutes driving this car with your legs together and invariably, you get swamp ass and trucker nuts. I'm 6' 200 lbs, so a little bigger than "average." Again, I wouldn't trade out the seats, they're awesome. But it's just something you have to accept with good leg bolsters. If you drive for an extended amount of time, your nutsack is absolutely going to be stuck to your legs.
4) The clutch. Not really a fan. Takes some real getting used to. I'd actually prefer a stiffer clutch with a more immediate and shorter engagement. This clutch reminds me of a 2 stage trigger. I prefer a single stage trigger with a short pre-travel. I know the longer clutch operation and longer engagement is to reduce fatigue and keep you from doing one legged squats, but I think the effort reduces the feedback of the car. This is probably the only thing I'm going to definitely mess around with and perhaps swap out or remove the assistance spring.
5) The stereo. Seriously Ford? Seriously? I understand my car is track pack and the original owner chose that feature over the tech pack. Truth be told I'd rather have trans and diff coolers than a nicer nav screen (obviously it'd be nice to have both but if forced to choose....). But c'mon. This is possibly the most awful stereo system for any car over $30k from any manufacturer. Just about any Toyota, any Nissan, etc has a better stereo system and that's not comparing the "upgraded" versions. Again, this isn't something Ford bean counters would have to spend a fortune on (if anything). I don't expect a Harmon Kardon or Blaupunkt system, but damn.
Again, I LOVE this car and wouldn't trade it for just about anything. These are really, REALLY nitpicky items and hopefully Ford listens to real world feedback (doubtful I know).
