A reporter is interested in talking with owners and shoppers of the new Mustang. What do you think of its design? Thanks for responding to predmunds.com by midday Monday, March 27, 2012 with your thoughts and your contact information.

What kind of compensation does Edmunds ask for when providing these services?
What/who qualifies as your definition of a "reporter"?

If we help them find a consumer, we ask that they mention Edmunds in their article, or that the respondent participates on our site. That's it. No one PAYS for stories. That would be... weird. Our communications group is thrilled that a number of major media (newspaper, magazine, television) sources look to us as a resource to get quality consumer commentary on automotive matters.
Reporters would be professional writers/reporters. It won't be Joe's Big Auto Blog - in general most people would be familiar with the organization seeking commentary.
It's totally optional - we don't push anyone to respond. However, we've received nothing but positive feedback from members who have elected to participate.

I think Its the (TPS) throttle position sensor. The one under the hood, not under the dash. Same thing happened to my wifes 06 mustang. It was installed incorrectly from the factory. If you take the two screw out of it and it dont slide right off then you got one that was installed wrong too. mine they removed this metal clip and rotated the switch sideways and forced it on. It does work like this but gives strange throttle response and after 6 years, finally threw up a code and put car into limp mode. Replaced it with a new one (installed correctly) and problem solved. Think it was $40 to $60.
Her mustang would squeal tires one time leaving a stop light and next time would barely move under same pedal placement. Hope this helps.

Anyone have any good photos of what the new style will look like? Any opinions on whether these changes are a good thing?

Check out the Evos concept. That's a BIG clue.

I am buying a 2006 Gt with only 17,000 miles on it. I read in consumer reports that there are issues with the drive system and electrical issues. I investigated the electrical issues further on the internet and found a lot of people had issues with the battery draining among other things. Should I be worried?

Thanks. Gullwing(?) entry and slender headlamps will help transform the 'Stang into a new era of styling for the future? Looks like a subtile transformation from tradition though.
It appears the chassis could be a little more compact than today's production models (2010-2014). IMO, Mustang is rather large sporty vehicle in today's world - which is okay.
It's hard to tell much from those photos.
