This car is very impressive with the interior of the vehicle. It's completely changed from the 2008 that I previously had, alot more power and the ability to change the steering. The ride is 100 and 10 percent much better than the past mustangs that I have owned. The ability to change the suspension makes the Ford GT a more attractive buy. I really like my buying experience thru Golf Mill Ford, Jimmy and Andrew were amazing. The customer service was outstanding fast and friendly financing not like your typical car buying experience.

Terrific California Special

Love my Mustang Ecoboost Convertible! Power and acceleration is probably good for most people. But I wanted a bit more power for hills I drive. I was able to make some easy modifications to improve power. Next step is upgraded turbo. Looks great, good visibility for a sports car and I find the convertible very enjoyable. Car driver's car.

over all to this point

The car as a whole is truly awesome so far. It's too early to rate reliability having few miles and not owning long yet. The handling is very solid. The more power you apply in the turns the more the car grips the road. Love the way it feels going down the road. Manual trans is very smooth and responsive. It is a coupe so it's kind of hard to get in and out of the car. But this is expected for the style of car it is. And it was known going in looking at the Stangs. I would recommend this vehicle to this point. All though I could NOT recommend the dealer!

For a muscle car, Mustang has a very sleek and well-conceived design. What sets it back though is it's pathetic interiors! (whoever uses number pads on the screen these days, jeez!!) While one understands that Mustang makers want to retain it's old school charm, it sure makes for a pathetic design. The 4.2' screen is not much of a help actually (just about solves the purpose). But having to punch a number pad to change radio stations and for other stuff when technology today has reached beyond space is downright appalling! And there is no additional upgrade package for a V6 model where one can opt for the 8' screen and get rid of that idiotic number pad. Personally, I would be more than ready to spend an extra 1-2K if there was an option for increasing the screen size and getting rid of the countless buttons out there(pathetically designed!!!)

Run the other way!

2016 Mustang EcoBoost Premium Review

First of all, I would prefer a Mustang in a V6 Premium Package, which is not available. That said, the EcoBoost 4 cylinder motor performs much better than I thought it would. It has gobs of power and is very economical. During a two day rental for the purpose of taking an extended test drive, we got excellent gas mileage. The handling is superb. The Shaker sound system and the other electronic goodies are very nice. The big turn off for us was the level of road noise. I felt this may have been related to the tires installed on the car, but we would not purchase any car with this level of road noise. If I was positive this could be mitigated by changing the tires, I might feel differently, but we were not willing to make an investment this large on an unknown. We loved the looks and handling, but hated the noise level.

I've had this car as a rental for 8 days. The ride is very smooth and supple. There is some cowl shake at times but it's mostly well controlled. With the top up road noise is muted from the tires but noise comes through the windows easily. The ecoboost 4 cylinder is no where near 5.9-6.1 in the convertible. Best time I got was 6.9 It lacks any authority in acceleration and is a very poor choice. The fuel ole age I got was 19.3 mpg My 5.7 Hemi manual challenger gets that. The seats are quite good as I have three bad discs and spinal stenosis and arthritis in my sacrum and these seats were a dream. The stereo system leaves a lot to be desired. My Boston acoustics in my challenger easily outperforms the shaker system. I rented this car to see if I want to buy it. I do but not this powertrain. Do I'm either left to v6 with no options allowed by fire or step up to the GT. This powertrain is a joke.

On the test drive I didn't put it through its paces. After taking it easy for the first 300 miles I was able to go down some higher speed (65-70 mph) roads. The drive train had a vibration. The dealer indexed the drive shaft. Didn't help. They ordered another one. Didn't help. They indexed that one and the problem was fixed. The bad part was that the dealer said the vibration was normal for a Mustang. I had to talk to the dealership owner to get it fixed. I checked online and found out it is a common problem. I really enjoy it now. The only real downfall now is that the passenger seat is very low and on mine it's not adjustable for height. My wife is short and has to sit on a cushion to see over the dash.

435hp with a 6sp manual transmission! Easily outguns the competition when you punch the gas but is a quiet, comfortable cruiser on the highway. I average 27-28MPG on the highway. Average tank gets me 330-350 miles. LOVE LOVE LOVE this car! Interior feels upscale. I am willing to bet that if you drive this car.. you will like this car! Go USA!!!!!

I have always been skeptical of an ecoboost mustang, this car however is a fantastic surprise. Great acceleration , great handling and a fantastic interior (premium). Be aware, blind spots are an issue, so BLISS maybe a worthwhile investment. Overall, driving to work is now something I look forward to!

LOVE THIS CAR!

I'm a little bit biased here since I am a FORD employee. I love this car! I have wanted to have either a Camaro or Mustang since I was a teenager just starting to drive. Now I finally have one! The dealer I worked with was fantastic. I told the sales person that contacted me what model I wanted and the colors I was interested in and in a couple of hours they sent me window stickers of several cars that meet my wants. I picked the one that most appealed to me, since it was at another dealer my dealer had to make a swap to get the one I wanted. My wife drives a Camaro and the one thing I really like about my Mustang is that I have more head room in it than the Camaro. The Mustang also has a better visibility than the Camaro. I have the ecoboost model and love it. It has the perfect blend of performance and gas mileage. I drive 70+ miles a day and usually drive at about 80 Mph and I have gotten as high as 30 Mpg the average is usually about 28 Mpg. I would highly recommend this car to any one that wants a sporty car. It's fun to drive and well worth the money

Our first Mustang was a 2004 GT convertible 4.0 automatic. Sassy was a fun little car, not a lot of zip but a ton of fun and we cherished her for 12 years. Then we bought our new 2016 GT convertible with the California Special package. With Ruby, it was love at first sight. If she were human, she would sound like Mae West with that throaty growl. She handles and rides like a dream and that much horsepower should be illegal. We are a retired couple yet we feel like kids when we drive this car, just for the sheer fun factor. We love her and plan on keeping her in the family for a long time.

I've owned seven mustangs over the years and this one is the best yet. The motor and transmission fit together like a glove and run smooth. Acceleration is strong and smooth all the way through . The gauges and controls are well placed and the quality is great . It's one of the only cars I've ever owned that I truly love to drive . Ford's engineering team put alot of fit and finish into the final product. I'll leave my stock with the 3:55 rears and six speed manual . Everything from the tires and rims to push button start are right where the neex to be. It's a beast and is not for the faint of heart of the street racers. It's a refined automobile right off the line . Ghyh

So i just bought my first ford ever a 2016 mustang ecoboost competition orange it has every option avaliable so it cost $2k more than the GT big deal so far getting 28mpg and thats after a few wide open runs and going 100+ a couple times and aftermarket parts wow endless supply just ordered $1500 worth parts should be right around 400hp without all the weight the GT carries only complaint is the back seat is pretty much non existent and the little 4 cylinder does use premium gas other then that happy with my purchase. If you're looking into the camaro do yourself a favor and check out the mustang interior is light years ahead sorry chevy just switched teams!

I just took possession of a new 2016 Ford Mustang GT Ruby Red Convertible! Yea! The mighty Coyote V8 thunders and rumbles even when sitting at idle. Everyone loves it! It just oozes power and performance. Its a trip! Punch it and runs! At stops people can hear the powerful engine and they look over often giving a big thumbs up. Cruising through town or just on the local boulevards the car catches eyes and ears. You just have to look and listen.

Driving fun, technology, looks, move over Toyota!

OK, I never thought I would own a V8 even in a truck. The gas mileage is relative, but not awful. You only get one life, and I always went for dependability in Toyota/Lexus, but if everyone would support the American economy and buy American cars again, you would be in for a surprise. I didn't go for the Shelby because I didn't want my insurance company to punish me, but the GT is a pleasant surprise. I had a new Toyota Truck I traded in, and I did it because I have seen a drop in their customer service and the way they treat you in general. Sure, you might argue it's fun to crawl over and down hills, but this GT put a smile on my face just driving it down the road. I didn't need to put the pedal to the floor, you cruise and maneuver knowing if you need it, the power is there. How many times did you need a burst of speed to keep from having a car ram you because you turned onto the road and misjudged they were speeding up to keep you from turning (you know who you are). After almost getting t-boned in a new vehicle with the response of a turtle, I decided to buy an American car. People, they know they have lagged in the market for years. That is why they have improved dramatically. You can dress it up as a sport car with stripes, or keep it simple like a Jaguar (the burgundy color looks awesome). The premium Shaker radio is great, although audiophiles will want to upgrade a door speaker or two, but it sounds great. Even my Sirius subscription sounds good again. I thought it was the signal, but it was the stereo. Even the JBL owners are upgrading the Tacoma speakers. And the technology is just fascinating. You can change the steering control, RPM engine response, interior lighting, set your seating positions for driver and passenger, and oh yes, you can open your garage door. I guess they don't have garages in Japan, but driving up in my new truck WITH the technology package I had to wave my garage door opener around in the window! What the hell? There is so much to brag about, all I can say is we bought Toyota's and Honda's for years and this is the year of the American car. I haven't experienced anything bad yet at Ford, but I was treated like a farmer looking for a truck full of chickens at Toyota. We are in America, let's start owning it. Don't listen to me, just go to the Toyota/Honda dealerships then go to American dealerships and see how far we have come. By the way, my nice truck was assembled in Mexico. Don't we need jobs here in America? Start with looking at the Mustang GT. Even though the only complaint is the back seat, it won't matter with just me and my wife in the car. Check it out even if your not planning on buying for a long time. I guarantee you will be impressed. Buy American, you live here don't you?

Awesome Car !

I recently purchased a v6 with the 051A package which is a must. You get the beautiful 18 inch 5 star wheels and 6 way power drivers seat. The car has great acceleration and very good steering feel. The ride is very good and the seat is comfortable. The car gets compliments everywhere I go especially when at the gas pumps.

Mustang GT Performance Pack, is better than Camaro

After coming from a basic, 2013 Camaro v6 manual. My Mustang is so much better in so many ways, I can actually see out of the Mustang! I have the base gt with performance pack, so comparing the performance of the two cars isn't really fair. Although comfort, interior quality, and technology is much better! I also find the 6 speed manual on the gt to be very smooth shifting. The only negatives I have found with the car, is that the exterior panel alignment could be better, gas mileage is sub par, but hey it is a v8! Also the back seat is not very comfortable to anyone over 5'1 due to the fastback design. I love what the base gt comes with although my word of advice if you are not going to upgrade the sound system, is to go ahead and step up the shaker system. The base 6 speaker audio is severely lacking. In fact it is dissapionting for a $32,000 car to have such a crappy system! There is no bass response and if you turn the radio up to 20 the music will sound like a muddy mess! Although I have never kept factory audio systems long, I find this one to be the worst system I have experienced, but I am currently in the process of upgrading it. Overall I love the car! It's is a beautiful body style, and drives amazing! It is very confident in corners, and the 6 speed manual is a thrill the throws are crisp. Clutch pedal travel is a little long, but it doesn't fatigue you in traffic. In my book this car gets a solid 4.5 stars!!

Cool car!

Fit finish are great. Features are impressive, especially the telemetry and endless things to monitor on the dash. Back up camera is awesome...and this is the lower end one. The v6 has power to spare and the ride is awesome. The wife loves the adjustable steering response. The Bluetooth has been a pain but it works. It would be nice if the delivery of the vehicle included a checklist of features on the vehicle...there seems go be a lot of confusion as to what we do and don't have installed. Also, moving the seats is clunky, folding them to get access to the back seats is clumsy. Overall, this is a very cool car!

Great Car for the value.

I trade my BMW 325ci 2004 for the Ford Mustang and no remorse at all. Mustang has everything that BMW got. The BMW has way too much plastic inside for a luxury car. Mustang is just perfect interior. The performer is just like any other luxury car and is made in USA. I really recommend For Mustang. No bad price for everything the car has. For V6 got enough power like sport car and the technology is the ultimate in cars. The only thing is the comfort of the seat, I take much getting used for the front seat and rear seat way too small and less space. But overall from 1 to 10; i gave a 9.

Beware the Performance Pack

The PP sets the car up for the racetrack. RACETRACK. Yes, you get Brembo brakes which are astonishing - but the ride quality is very jittery, bumpy and nervous with steering that wants to follow every road imperfection. Felt like driving a car with no suspension whatsoever. In other words, exactly what you want in a track car. I tried but I could not live with The Beast on a daily basis. We live in the country where the roads are not so smooth sometimes and that amplified the rough ride. Because it was so uncomfortable as a daily commuter (35 miles each way), I had to trade mine back in within two weeks . BTW, I am used to sporty cars, having driven a VW GTI for 14 years. Also, being 6' 3" it was very hard to get in and out of the car, and I never really found a comfortable seat position. On the plus side - the power is addicting but be ready for 18 mpg overall if you use it often. Manual shifter is excellent. Loved it - but can't live with it.

Great car

I had a 2010 Mustang GT I bought new, and was ready for a new car. Looked seriously at the highly rated Camaro SS, and also considered the Challenger RT. Really was in the mood for a change, instead of another Mustang GT. That said, found a great deal on a new 16 bright red GT, paying almost $9,000 less than I would have paid for the base Camaro SS. I know the SS is rated a little higher, is a little faster, etc, but for the price I paid, I am very pleased with the new GT. It has changed significantly from the 2010 model I traded in.... handles better, is quicker, looks cool, is much more planted on the road, and gets better gas mileage, even after adding 100 plus additional hp. For the price, I am very happy with the car. It's fun, looks great, drives great, and is way faster than I need to go!

Beautiful, powerful, comfortable GT

I bought the 2016 Mustang Premium GT and am super happy. This car has all the bells and whistles. Car feels like a dream driving down the road. Has all the power I would ever need. I live in the city so I got the automatic due to the stop and go traffic of course. Extremely smooth transmission. Has Sync 3 which is really great. Navigation works flawless along with the Bluetooth and I love being able to tell the car what temp I want and it sets it. The interior looks wonderful from the leather seats to the classy gauges on the dash. Car holds the roads really well around curves and back roads. Many options to choose from such as steering handling and modes for the engine and tranny. I keep mine in normal mostly to preserve gas. I'm getting roughly 18 MPG. I think that's pretty good in the city. Anyway again I love this car and look forward to driving it each day. My first Ford car and have been totally blown away. Update: I still love the car. I have had a couple issues but nothing severe yet. I noticed that the projection side mirror light's image of the mustang isn't clear anymore. Not a big deal but haven't even owned the car a year and already an issue. One day I was getting out of the car and the electric side mirror started moving on its own. Was all messed up moving too far to one side and making an awful noise like was about to break off. I opened the door back up to get into the car again and it stopped. Everything seems to be okay and it hasn't happened again.

I purchased a performance package GT convertible in January. The exterior body panels were not bonded correctly by the roller at the factory causing noticeable creases at the edges of the trunk, passenger door and hood. The car has been reviewed by the dealer and 2 body shops and all agree this is a factory defect. Problem is that FORD CORPORATE says it is NOT their problem. Dealer is working with me to correct the poor workmanship but I am concerned that after the trunk, door and hood panels are all reworked and repainted that the value of the car will be depreciated. FORD should just take this car back and give me the straight car I paid $44k for.

I have dreamed about buying a Mustang since I was 6 or 7 years old. Somehow the timing was never right. EIther it was too expensive, not practical for family purposes or was a lesser quality product. I just purchased a Ingot Silver Mustang with the Pony Package. It exceeds my expectations. A pleasure to drive. Props to our friends at Ford for really getting it right. This is the best Mustang since the '68-'72 era.

I have owned my 2016 GT Premium California Special convertible (Oxford White) for 6 months now and every day I just look forward to driving it...especially with the top down! It has the 6 speed automatic with 3.55 LS Rear Axle, Nav, Adaptive Cruise Control, Reverse Sensing Safety system....well everything except the "Performance Package" which you can't get with the automatic transmission. Acceleration is awesome! Simply put, it looks GREAT, drives GREAT and sounds GREAT. No problems or regrets so far...This is the first vehicle built by an "American" manufacturer that I have purchased since 1985! Toyota and Honda (and a number of Mazda Mx-5s) have been and still are in my driveway, however I love this Mustang! Funny story...I rented a 2016 Ford Expedition for a week and was soo impressed with the quality and performance of the big Ford, I had to go drive the new Pony Car! Word of advice: Don't test drive one if you don't want to own one!

A dream car for sure!!!!!

The ride is amazing. It's amazingly quiet of other vehicles or I'm just mesmerized by the purr of the 5.0 V8 sound. Extremely comfortable while driving. Seats mold to you, lumbar support for driver is great and I love the option of heat or cool for seats. I love everything about this car. I have the new color---Guard Metallic. It's gorgeous!!

My Mustang GT has been a real satisfying experience. From the dealership buying experience to the superb performance, comfort, reliabiltiy and super good looks, my Mustang is a winner! The new generation has vastly improved the Mustang and the impressive build quality makes ownership a pleasure. I am a very happy Mustang owner!

So after purchasing a 2016 Mustang GT, the paint on horozontal surfaces was found to have numerous defects resulting from an unknown source and was reported to the dealer within several days of the purchase. Two months into ownership Ford has taken the position the paint is not covered and has rejected the dealer's warranty repair plan. This vehicle has only 400 miles on it and Ford is playing this game. Needless to say, having purchased approximately 18 new vehicles in the past 20 years, Ford can now forget about getting any more business from me and my family. I would encourage anybody purchasing a new car, go with any OEM other than Ford!! Update... Ford Motor Co. never did change their position on this issue. Apparently the primary problem was the selling dealership didn't report the problem to Ford within the 10-day window required for a brand new vehicle, so the burden was shifted away from Ford and onto the dealership or me. In the end, the dealership applied the SurfaceCare product, which provides a 7-year warranty on the paint, at no cost to me to resolve the dispute. Overall, the process deminstrated an abysmal level of customer concern and product support on the part of Ford Motor Co.

This car is great. I am averaging 24-25 miles combined highway and city. It is stick shift so that helps. I have dreamt of this car since I was 10 years old and am highly satisfied. I got it for 26.5 as my Shamaley Dealership. Glad I purchased it.

An extra $3000 in aftermarket parts added to the GT premium with performance package makes for one great car. Cold air kit, long tube headers and Ford Racing by Borla exhaust, along with a re-tune, really supplies that extra boost in power and sound. The car is outstanding as a weekend cruiser, is a lot of fun at the local track and very comfortable for 2 people on a week long vacation. Can't say enough good things about it.

I owned 4 mustangs over the last 10 yrs but this 2016 ecoboost is by far the best. I'm very impressed with the performance and the new look is impressive. Considering that is a 4 cyl with 310hp the ride comfort and acceleration is amazing.

This may be the Best Mustang Yet!

I have the new 2016 Ford Ecoboost Mustang with the premium and pony package. This car was love at first sight. There are so many things that Ford added as little eye catchers that make it very appealing. The new Ecoboost engine is very quick off the line and with 310 HP and 320 FTLBS of torque it is competitive with most muscle cars with bigger engines. The Sync 3 with voice navigation is excellent, it will read me my incoming text messages from my iPhone 6. I am 6'2" and I fit well in the drivers seat but there are times that my foot will catch the door while getting in or out. The rear seat isn't for the tall folks on long drives. There is a cutout design in the headliner and seat backs that accommodate a few more inches of room but anyone over 5'9" will have the head hitting the top. The traction control modes are excellent. I live where we get snow and the snow/wet pavement mode gives you the feeling of comfort, the tires with the pony package also help with this feature. I have less than 1,000 miles on it and driving around town the gas mileage is awesome. The different dash instrumentation layout options with color is a neat feature. I would buy another tomorrow if given the option. The only issue or challenge I had before buying was the stock exhaust sound. No worries there, there are so many aftermarket exhaust options that I am sure I will get the sound I like. Additionally, the mods for this car you can see on youtube and ecoboost models are already hitting the 500HP mark... awesome car, turns a lot of heads, and very fun to drive.

OK just a quick update from my previous review: So the dealer found the cause of the rear end noise, it was Lungnuts rolling around where the spare tire would be if there was one. The car has locking lungs on it so, someone put the spare lungnuts in trunk. Boy was I releaved! It has been a week since I purchased the Mustang and I have to say "It is my Dream Car"! It drives great & handles amazingly well. It was warm enough to put the top down...what a great day cruzing.

Just bought the 2016 v6 Convertable Mustang drove it home went to park the car in my garage and I heard a "clunk" noise in the rear of the car. Wow you can hear it every time you stop the car even at 1 mile per hour. It takes the luster off your new car purchase. I'm headed back to the dealer tomorrow morning, I hope to get it fixed or get a replacement. It is very fustrating went are so excited about your purchase and it disappoints you!!
