Default Why do people hate?

My husband and I just got a 2009 GT
People are hating and saying oh its a sh*tstang calling mustangs and fords crappy.
I understand its a rear wheel drive ( not too great on my car lingo hope i worded that right lol)
I understand Fords back in the day may have not been that good and they have come a long way. My husban d has always driven Ford. My brother in law has a mustang from 1986 and its still on the road.
I just dont get why people feel the need to bash the mustang. It has a great reputation for good reason.
Sorry I just needed to vent. thanks for reading.

The reason people hate mustangs are because they can not afford one. They drive junk chevy cars and trucks, or because maybe what they have can not touch a ford mustang.

Its just a dumb popular beleif that Fords are bad cars despite the Model T selling so well and the GT 40's victories, if you're hanging around tuners they're probably jealous because all they can afford are Neons and Colbolts.

i work for a GM dealership, and i catch that crap all day long from the techs in the shop. A few have and race GM products, so i hear all the BS, ALL day long. I get tired of it, but i know on motor, my car is probably faster than both of thiers.. ive already beat one big-block chevy truck they built in the shop (ported heads, big inches, SLICKS, all that BS) on street tires. pretty funny on top end.. my 116.65 mph to his 105. I love it!

Hi Scongie,

As for the Haters, they are most likely VERY jealous! It's really that simple. You have a 2009 Mustang GT, it is a georgeous pony with a rich, deep history. Secure people will compliment your vehicle; the whimps with the second-rate, late-model, mildly modified pocket-rockets will quote you lap stats.

But let me ask you this simple question: When you are kicking your Mustang on the open road, stereo blasting your favorite playlist, and the engine is rumbling and growling under your ass, how do YOU feel?

Lol. No worries friend. There is always a faster car, but the Mustang GT is the whole package, and the 2009 rocks!

Be loud and proud. Wait. No. Don't worry about being loud..... your bored-out GT will take care of that all by itself.

Scot.

Let me tell you. Sometimes I do not even turn the radio on because the engine is frickin awesome to hear. But yes cranking up the tunes while driving that car is great!

They sound like Chevy people or import people for that matter or even pseudo-elitists from the Lexus/BMW world. I have a 2007 GT Convertible and have owned 4 mustangs in my life. It appears to me that certain Chevy owners as well as the ricer crowd have the Napoleon/short-man complex when it comes to vehicles and will stop at nothing to try to make you feel inferior or make you think your 'stang is inferior because they themselves have a complex. If everyone owned a 'stang, the world would be a better place!!! Be proud and happy.

Default Re: Why do people hate?

Hey, I'm still driving my Mustang 42 years after I bought it. How many of those people smarting off will be able to say that with their current cars? (And it will blow away most of those ricers.) As for the rear drive, performance cars are rear drive. Period.

I don't understand the put down. There are good cars from several manufacturers. Parked here are my Mustang, a Firebird Formula, a BMW Z3, an Infiniti G35S and a Dodge (truck). All the cars are rear drive and manual transmission. All good cars. But which one gets all the positive attention when we drive it? Yep, the Mustang!

I just installed a Sirius satellite radio in it, but I still love to hear those pipes rumble!!

Enjoy your Pony. It doesn't get much better - even at twice the price.

Cool Re: Why do people hate?

I get that all the time. The answer is jealousy. And alot of it. Its normal though. People want stangs but they either cant afford it and/or the insurance, or they just cant handle it. I have 2002 with a mild set up. Most of my buddies cant hang, so they hate. Just remember, there is allways compition to destroy, leaving haters every where we go. PIECE!!!!

seriously, they hate you because they can't afford one. Mustangs are great cars, despite the fact that it is, in fact, a Ford car.

"At least it's not made by Government Motors (GM)", that's what I say when people start dissing Fords and Mustangs. It usually shut them for awhile.

Chevy people will always put down the Mustang, the Mustang has a long history and unlike the Camero never went away at any time, they have always been an affordable car unlike those overpriced Corvette's, and Ford has been doing well during all these bailouts,

I have a '93 LX that still looks like new, I love this car because it is so easy to work on and there are so many aftermarket parts for it,
