    why is it when I read other mustang boards there is always atleats 3 or 4 posts about 05 - 07 stangs crashing in the rain. I have never had a problem with my stang in the rain (knock on wood) hell I even drove it in a foot of snow and never lost control. are the new stangs that bad in the rain. to lose control at 10 -15 mph is a bit weird.

    mine sucks in the rain but im guessing its people buying a new car, chooising a mustang after driving a ford taurus their whole life and not used to how they handle the wet weather. i bet if you look back in 94 there were lots of cases of 94 mustangs crashed.

    They do have more HP then what we started with plus alot of the owners are old geezers who haven't driven a car like that since their last Mustang in the 60's or 70's.
