The new 2000 GT has no handling problems (God no!), but the body creaks some coming to a stop and leaving from a stop. The creak comes from under the back seat area. I will have them check everything for tightness when I go in for my 5000 mile.

However, I think this is a problem with unibodies (I've heard). Summit Racing has subframe connectors for about 100 bucks. BBK, I think. Sound good?

Also, export braces & Monte Carlo bars. Do they still make them for the modern Mustangs? I see where the bar could go, but there doesn't seem to be a place to bolt the export brace to the firewall/cowl area without drilling.

The passenger-side dash squeaks some. Armor-all?

Joe sounds like "new Mustang bugs" the Dealership will take care of them..just be glad you don't have a convertible

I'll leave the question about subframes to those in the know.sam
