rear seats are the perfect size for kids, and its got a huge trunk

Rear facing till 40lbs is the new recommendation. It's bad enough hauling mine into her car seat in my Suby. 2door no thanks.

If the paint matters to you…nothing that touches it.

grats on the new Stang..

curious why u didnt wait for the 2015 ?

My typical daily drivers where killing me on gas and trying to find time to work on my own cars is almost imposable.

But for $22000 Im going to save $5-8000 A year in gas Plus its got the warrenty. V6 base with the 6speed And no options. It even comes with radial t/a's just like a 84 mustang would, only this new v6 has over 100hp more then the old 5.0
Maybe ill check out the new 2.3 turbo in a couple years. I just hope they dont gain to much weight with the irs.

A friend of mine has that rack and I can assure you that it sucks @ss. It's only good for one bike, and it's not even good at that.

Libre? Libre como el vienta……

I have two of them, and they work great … dunno how he's putting the bikes on it. You have to make more adjustments if you have 2 very dissimilar bikes (eg in terms of top tube height and wheelbase). Generally you put the inside bike on first with the taller hook.

I've ordered from them. Had a great price on the hitch I needed and they're in Ontario so no border shipping hassles. They're not the greatest at communicating but other than that, no complaints.

I checked these guys out and ordered a hitch from them last week, had it in 3 days. Installed in less than an hour on my CRV

I also ordered a north shore rack nsr4 after much research and humming and hawing over the price. It too arrived in two days. Very glad I got it, such a well built and solid rack. The bikes don't touch.

It's pricey but as a long term purchase very much worth it.
