About the same thing one could say about Corvette drivers ...
Seems being an unskilled dick is brand agnostic o_O

One video shows a ton of people being dicks on the road. Most in the wet.

The other is a random video where you are assuming because the guy has a corvette that he's in the wrong with no info on the accident itself. From where I'm from 4wd owners cause most angst on the road. Most are used to pick up the kids from school with their size used as ignorance.

The driving excellence in most of these videos is primarily caused by people learning to drive in vehicles that have all of the new driver safety aids. Switch them off, and they don’t know how to drive!

In the first event filmed, it looks like the left rear wheel just came off. Obviously not the driver's fault at all.

Mustang prangs explained.....
a. The steering wheel is on the wrong side.
b. Too much power, outdated suspension, crap tyres = too little grip.
c. Look at me ………. I have a 'Stang …..… oops, I don't have any talent.

Yes the left rear wheel comes off and the fact it occurred on what seems to be a race track didn’t escape me either. Was it the drivers fault, almost certainly not, his mechanic, maybe.

But the second event did show poor driver capabilities as the driver lost control on a simple right hand turn. And the main event is obviously speculative as to what actually happened. However, being the first corvette c8 crash was interesting enough to post. And in another video of this C8 crash, which I couldn’t locate on youtube, the pics looked like he clipped a SUV.

In any case, the point of my post was to highlight that poor driving skill are likely equally distributed across all manufacturers, or brand agnostic as I said.

Possibly true but the previous generation of Mustang has a really poor rear suspension design that tends to make the car swap ends far to easily.
