2009 Coupe

It's real easy. Do you like the redesign, not like it ,or don't care either way. Please keep your criticism constructive, (i.e. they should have added... or left out...) not this suck and everyone at Ford should die.

the good news is they got rid of those stupid fender badges, the bad news is that i feel like they recycled some old designs... the grill pattern, the wheels, the mustang shift knob... however I like the wing before the break in the rear roof line... i do not like the fact that there is no hatch available...

It looks better but the front end lights and grille need to change. The back end looks good but I'm not sure if I like that mid wing or not.

For a stopgap car, Ford did do an excellent job of redesigning the coupe.

i think its a huge improvement..... if it had a 2.3 and handled at least nearly as well as an svt.... i would definitely buy one.... depending on the price of course... but well done on the makeover

You know, maybe it's the color of the car in the pics thats putting me off, I think it might actually look pretty good in black. As for the comment on the 1" drop - it looks to me like it has substantially less fender gap than the sedans already... so maybe they tweaked something there too.
The important thing is that they're starting to listen to the market!
