It sounds like everyone is disappointed by the lack of steering feel, and these guys came to a different conclusion than SavageGeese did.

It seems like most reviewers are saying that there's no steering feel whatsoever, which is disappointing considering that the GT350 and Mach 1 didnt have the same complaints. Hopefully Ford can address this.

Outside of that, yeah, it's a bigger, heavier car than the other two. If you're looking for a small, lightweight, nimble car, a Mustang isn't it.

The interior of the Supra really illustrates how cheap the fake carbon stuff on the Mustang looks. That stuff has NO place in a car that costs 60+ grand.

Mustang ended up in 3rd place for both reviewers. Most of the same comments about lack of steering feel and weight.

Maybe Ford will get around to improving steering feel someday.

There’s no excuse for the steering feel when the Mach 1 was never hit with the same criticism. Also, seeing the real carbon fiber in the Supra’s interior makes the fake carbon in the Mustang look so much worse than it already did. Come on, Ford!

Yep. I still have no idea why Ford won’t apply the GT350 magic to the Dark Horse …

I test drove a 24 GT and the steering felt video game like fake compared to my car ….

When did the Mustang switch to the electric steering?
Give them time, it will get better. When the Hellcat first switched to electric it sucked, but each year it got better and better.

My mom's 2016 Edge has it. A real pain when it gets messed up because it needs to be reset before it works again. She lost a battery and that was enough to mess up the system. Needed to flat bed it to Ford for a battery and a reset.

That's the Edge. When did the Mustang first get it?

Wow, you would think it could have been improved by now. When I test drove a 24 GT I noticed the steering had very little feedback thru the wheel, but didn't think it was as bad as the guys in the video said.

I haven't driven a 24 yet, but I never had an issue with my 2015. Did the steering feel like a Lotus Elise or an Alfa 4C? No, but I never felt like I didn't know what the grip was like at the front end. Maybe the 24 is somehow worse? I don't know...

I doubt it. I think those guys just don't want to like the Mustang. You couldn't give me the Z or the Supra. Guess i just like American muscle.

I'm pretty sure they liked the Mach 1 and GT350, and other reviewers that liked those said the steering isn't good in the 24. I'm with you though--the Supra and Z just don't do anything for me. I sat in a Supra at the auto show and the view out was like a submarine. I would rather have an NA V8 than a turbo 6.
