2010 Ford Mustang Reliability - Consumer Reports
Ford improved this version of the Mustang with more refined handling, communicative steering, upgraded interior materials, and standard electronic stability control. While the ride is decent, it doesn't feel quite as tied down and composed as it should. The transmission shifts very smoothly and the engine delivers a throaty V8 note. Plus, 20 mpg is quite good for this level of power.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
