I think the overall quality of cars is pretty good and I've been pleased with all of my purchases over the past decade or so. A couple of standouts were my 2008 MDX that I sold with 150,000 miles on it and the other is my 2013 Fusion Ti that has been flawless. The Fusion is now my kids car. From the Ford employees/engineers I've met I'm confident they are all trying to make the highest quality cars they can. The reality with the Mustang is it didn't start out as a $60,000 sports car it starts out as a $25,000 rental fleet darling.
