For that matter, it’s also full of history and it very well maybe, the most recognizable ambassador of American car culture the world over. And people know this too because for the past five years, the Ford Mustang is indeed the undisputed best-selling sports coupe.

And of course, the Mustang offers great value for muscle car nuts today, especially for the Philippine car market. The Mustang price Philippines 2021 - 2022 starts at Php 2,838,000 for the 2.3 Ecoboost, and the lineup is topped off by the Ford Mustang 5.0 V8 GT MT Convertible at Php 3,618,000.

Now some of you might think that’s expensive, but that’s actually decently priced for the power the 5.0 V8 makes.

The Ford Mustang lacks speed-sensing door locks

Sure, the Mustang is great and all, but what drives us nuts, is the said model’s lack of speed-sensing door locks, even for its top trim.

This feature is something one would expect from a Php 3-million car, and especially from a very high-performance muscle car like the Mustang.

Even an experienced driver will sometimes forget to lock his/her doors, and we’re sure that this has happened to you at some point. As such, a speed-sensing door lock will give loads of convenience for every car owner, including Mustang owners.

Overall, however, the Mustang is still a pretty safe vehicle. It’s just that, giving it a speed-sensing door lock wouldn’t hurt and will only provide more convenience and safety for its occupants.
