Went to buy a Chevy Tahoe hybrid. I let Moe know what I was able to afford per month and he was able to make it happen. Even delivered the truck to me at no cost extra.

Not for the faint of heart. A red convertible mustang (even ten years old now) still draws quite the attention. Mine is a cop magnet, whenever I even consider revving the engine I know they are waiting around the corner for the next youngster in a red car. By today's standards a 200+ horsepower pony car is by no means american muscle, but nothing beats hitting interstate speeds in under 6 seconds with the top down. Pros: the ride is amazing, I'm used to riding bikes and being able to feel the road. Last year I made a deal with a guy, he was putting radials on his new gt and sold me his brand-new 2013 gt rims and his Perreli-nero-zeros for 300 bucks. Thus I have a nicer car then 95% of the people in town. It's a source of freedom and pride haha. But when I park somewhere everybody knows its me. Black leather interior, black roof (the fancy vinyl-ish kind, not the cloth top), and of course, the exclusive red sally paint job. Cons: The air conditioning can barely keep up with the heat of two passengers on a hot sunny day (105 degrees), but that's to be expected with a black topped car. Also, the engine is limited in fourth gear. Ruins my fun. But then again there's no need to even be in fourth gear under 85 miles per hour.

Good reliability but the dash cluster sucks everyone I know that has one has went bad. The mpg for a v6 is horrible a v6 should get high 20s, I drive 84 miles a day and get 23 tops. The 2000 I had got 28 same drive.

This is the 5th mustang I have owned all others being older models, And I have to give ford credit it is a vast improvement and a whole different animal. Handling is by far much improved due to new chassis engineering, you get 305hp in the GT! Which is the most power available to the GT to that date. Engine management system does a great job of turning it into a boulevard bully when your in the mood then pretend its Hybrid when it senses your trying to save gas. Back seat takes effort to get into but plenty of room in the 2005 when back there. Clutch could be handled by my 80 yr old grandma, ..not heavy at all! Now even the car is 6 years old it still gets complements and ride requests!

05 Mustang V6 is the best car i ever driven, the 4.0 engine is fast and fuel efficient and reliable, i don't know what people are complainning about, when i buy a car, i don't care about the looks, the small things that go wrong with it, i go for preformance, the Motor and Trans, those are the most importance of a car, if the motor and transmission is in good working condition and so far, i had this Mustang since 2005 and its 2012, i have no problems with the engine and transmission and thats great for a Ford!! The only small problems was the battery went bad in 4 years, thats normal for any car, the dashboard gages went bad on the temp. and fuel gage, no big problem!

Ready to Run!!

I really enjoyed this car, no major problems. It took most of its life in AZ where I bought it, in 08 with 48k on it, then drove it too NY, Now has 61k, never seen a NY winter. Its fast, and sporty or it can be a normal car, all depends on how you drive it, me I enjoy winning the races! Its roomy only in the front seats, rears are good for college books lol. Problems I have are popping sound while turning at low speeds, i cant find anything nor can the mechanics. Other thing is the 2 water leaks i had, a/c drain box, but that was just a drain plug, was plugged, the other i cant find but the driver side seatbelt fills with water when it rains.

I was concerned and apprehensive when I went from a Mercedes C230 Sport to the Mustang GT Convertible. On day two I knew I made the right decision. This car rocks! The car generates amazing torque and speed. The exhaust and engine are perfectly matched; it makes a deep throaty growl when I get on the accelerator. The handling is superb. The first time I dropped the transmission into second gear going around a corner and goosed it, I'm sure I looked like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland; I had such a grin. This car is without a doubt more powerful, responsive and refined than the 5.0 GT I bought new in 1990. I am so happy with this car I want to sleep in it. Thank you Ford!

Love at first sight! Loved it even more when I drove it. Fast, fun, and eye catching. But have had to replace the brakes 3 times and have had many braking issues. The emergency brakes sticks and you don't know it until you smell it, then it's too late. Back to shop for more brakes! The car has had a rattle since I purchased it. Drives me nuts, passenger seat belt has been replaced 2 times and still locks and latches my passenger in and will not release. I have to warn them not to put it on or put it on at their own risk. Ford see's nothing wrong with this. Brakes are not a issue either, their solution "don't use the emergency brake".

Growing up with many Fords, even going back to the Model - Ts, I have to say this is the worst car to purchase and has ruined my relationship with Ford and its products. The car was ordered to gain all features desired; the dealership had to order it twice to get it right! As of buying it Jan of 2005 I have had: two dead batteries, all sensors replaced twice for doors and trunk, when filling gas tank the pump clicks out and/or then the tank will over fill and spill about a gallon of gas, windows stuck in the down position when closing the doors, fuel emission issues, same tail light burning out, paint separation from body in spots, constant rattling noise, CONT BELOW

This is the best car I've owned! No one single mechanical problem after 5+ plus years of ownership. I had the opportunity to run this monster on the German autobahn at speeds in excess of 140 mph with the top down. What an experience. Buy one, you will not be disappointed. Great job on this one Ford!

I bought my 2005 v6 Ford mustang in August of 2008. I had a Jeep wranlger before it and it was a huge change. It has an amazing amount of standard features, smooth ride and astounding handling (especially on turns)! I would suggest though, don't go in the mud... I bottoms out really easy, so if the roads dirt, don't test it but if you stay on concrete it's a pretty Nice ride. It also has amazing leg room, I'm 6,2 with and when I put the seat all the way back I can make my legs completely straight! It's amazing! But I will warn you with the seat all the way back it basically touches the back seat. So if you have ppl in the back you do have to sacrifice a lot of leg room!

the best car that you can buy!

It is a Blast to drive every single time!! Truly feels like you are in a 67' fastback! Only problem I've had with it is the oxygen sensor going out, but not to worry It's a GREAT car! The A/C blows SUPER cold, I never have to use the full power of it. It has plenty of horsepower, in fact when the light turns green it's a struggle not to laugh and spin the tires leaving the Prius next to you in your rear view mirror. Mine has a borla exhaust that produces a sound second to none! It is extremely reliable and never lets you down. If you are not having fun with this car you are doing something wrong!

Terrible!

I cant keep this car out of the shop. Rear end AND tramission been replaced twice, trunk swicth, stereo as well, seat belts wont unlock sometimes, and battery dies often. Ford doesnt want to do anything about it. Interior looks good but is cheap plastic and rattles ALL the time. I was a ford mustang guy until i got this car. Oh yeah, pumping gas takes forever.

A more gorgeous, fun to drive, fun to look at, no troubles in sight car you couldn't find. In a world of cars that look like tylenol capsules & are a big bore in general, you have a REAL car: the ford mustang! With its big heavy- set eyebrows and its throaty (but not obnoxious) growl. Handles a dry turn with determination, LOVES the road in terms of wanting a good run...it will ask to pull toward 80 rather than cantering at 65. Cars & especially trucks politely get out of the way to let the glory of this American Original shine, as it gracefully owns the road, weaving or not weaving, gaining or not gaining as the mood fits. I have had it 3 years. Bottom line: If I could buy 3, I would!

I must say for a V6 it is quiet quick. I had added the Airaid cold air intake to it. And managed to run it at 15.05 at 92 mph through a quater mile at the track. So its plenty of power for what you pay. Now to the cons. Panels are falling off all over the place. Front and back bumpers just seem like a pre- K toddler could pull them off. It is way to tight fitting on the inside. Which i guess its suppose to be. I love the way the inside looks though, with all the nice chrome pieces. It can be turned around like a fourwheeler too with very tight steering. But if you get this car you'll just be wishing you had the V8 the whole time so don't waste your money on this.

It is a Dream car!!!!

I really love this car. Even for a v6, the performance is great for a reasonable price. You barely have to touch the pedal and you get great acceleration. The gas mileage is alright, better than I thought it was going to be considering it's a sports car. Interior and exterior designs are both absolutely beautiful. The retro fonts on the gauges take a little getting used to, but this car is a real blast to drive. I have had no problems with the car so far, just like the majority of the reviews said. The tank only costs $40.00 to fill at $3.45 per, which isn't bad. Overall great car in every aspect that makes a sports car what it is.

A very fun car to drive. Lots of looks & feedback from people. But having problems with battery drain when not in use for 3-4 wk. Lost 1st battery to dead cell 2nd starting to fade. I hope Ford will recognize problem & issue warranteed fix (I'm now off warranty). I notice several others on Mustang forums with same; maybe a stong lobby to Ford will resolve this with recall or TSB.

I bought V6 5 speed red Mustang in 2005 and has 47k miles already. No mechanical/electrical issues. Cons: no real pick up in first gear, tires of low quality (poor track in winter/rain conditions), stereo of low quality (keeps the cds inside), some cabin noise, reverse shift difficult to engage, plastic interior of low quality, cupholders useless in current location, dings and bells for seat belts and other conditions extremely noisy and loud. Pros: almost everything else: design, speed, comfort (for 2 passengers of course), trunk space, fuel economy, reliability, etc.

The '05 Mustang convertible in dark red with tan leather and premium interior is a fun to drive beautiful all American "head turner". It handles and sounds great (for a V6) and its classic looks are terrific (I grew up in Detroit in the '70s, so I guess I am the target audience for the design, and they hit the target)

As soon as the new Mustangs hit the market in 2004, I knew I had to have one. I found a GT with the premium equipment package just the way I wanted it and at a good price (I was lucky) and took it home in December 2004. The car is now three and a half years old with about 15,000 miles on the odometer. I really enjoy driving the Mustang, and love the looks. Being an early build unit (built on October 4, 2004) it did have many of the bugs and issues the first batch suffered from, including issues with the radio, fuel tank, battery, alternator, and front end suspension. All repairs were covered by the warranty.

Fun and, so far, reliable

Bought with 7k miles, now at 26k, no major problems, just the same tail lamp keeps burning out. All-city driving yields terrible gas mileage, but cruising on hwy at 70mph, I get 28mpg easy. Installed AirAid conical air filter which made huge difference in throttle response, power and exhaust note. In 2nd gear at 3000 rpm, watch out! Very fast. Full-size luggage can fit in trunk, something most convertibles can't boast. Stereo is amazingly powerful, even on hwy w/roof down. Brakes could be better. Bumpy roads reveal rattles and looseness mainly in windows & roof. But for combo of V8 power, stick-shift control, topless motoring, mega- style and storage space, there's no competition at all.

My Legend Lime V6 convertible has been a wonderful experience. I bought it instead of a motorcycle due to 2 little ones at home because it has a back seat. I drove it to Illinois by myself from Minnesota the first week I bought it and put the cruise on with the top down and tunes cranked. I haven't had one repair. It is hands down the best value for a sports car! I had 2 69 Stangs growing up and this one hasn't let me down for performance!

What can i said i'm a Ford lover. This is my Mustang #5 and all I got to say that is a beast on the road. Awesome performance, body design, nice retro dashboard. Bottom line Ford did it again, great work! My only suggestion is the suspension should be dropped at least 1.5 inches. Car needs to be able to handle better in curves.

I loved the looks and had to have one. No sunroof offered, no climate control available, no factory nav, no MP3 dock, I didn't care. Ripping to redline had it's own reward. Two years later a third child, a rattling dash and $3 gas made me realize this isn't a car for a long term relationship. To get 300hp for so little money corners must be cut. I still love the car on weekends, but commuting realities mean I'm trading it in. Goodbye, we'll always have Paris.

If Ford makes all future Mustangs live up to this one, you will always find me in the driver's seat of one. I fell in love with this design when I saw it unveiled in numerous magazines and auto shows. From an interior that leaves you feeling swaddled in comfort to the retro gauges that seem to smile when you take a seat and a beautiful body design, this car catches the very elements that an American muscle car should have; attitude and appeal. The car is affordable and the performance is great. Space could be better, but works for a muscle car. Gas mileage is good considering V8 power and curb weight. Overall, kudos to FMC. This car has punched its ticket in the automotive hall of fame.

All that I have had is problems with this car and every time time I take it to the dealer, they don't want to work on it. Items that have had problems: Gas gauge which is failing again 1 year later, Transmission does not shift at the 3rd shift point unless you let up on the gas and push it down again, Windshield washer bottle 2 times, trunk switch, strip was replaced, the front-end could be aligned and need a shime about $140, the steering wheel has always had a shimmy (guessing that the rotor are warped). Water pump went and they did not even want to look at it until I ask what I would need to do when it blow up on the way home. Unsafe to drive.

This is the 3rd 6 cyl. Mustang I've owned and this one is by far my favorite. The fit and finish is great, the performance is so far beyond my 95 that its closer to the fox body v-8. I like it so much that this is the first Stang that I'm upgrading visualy and performance wise. That's saying something about the passion this car causes in me as my first Stang was purchased in 1973. My only complaint would be the fuel fill problem that occurs once in awhile, the tank won't take a fill up at times. Overall, all I can say is that it kills me from Nov. to April when I store it.

First problem accurred before the 30 days temp tag was up. Shaker 1000 was fixed 3 times. Very hard to put fuel in it, the pump shuts off after $1.00 or sooner. Ford states No problem there!! I have had Electrical problems, E-brake locking up. rear end out, stereo not working, and the list goes on!!! If u are a mechanic then this is the car to drive!! Buyers beware! Ford needs to make some improvements!

I have 29,000 miles on my Mustang, bought it new when there were few on the lot and have not had the first problem. I have had mine to Miami and to Niagara Falls, ON twice and everywhere in between. The gas mileage has always been good, the best being 29mpg which I just did on a trip to Orlando and around town is usuallyin the 20-22 range depending upon my foot. The pickup and passing are excellent for a v-6 and love shifting into the 4 speed range for passing. Next one will be a GT convertible.

This car is the love of my life! Unfortunately the Colorado State Police pay way too much attention to it too! I bought a 5 speed & can't imagine driving an automatic. When I want to pass someone on our mountain roads I leave them in my dust & by the way - I'm a baby boomer lady. I love the shift throw & have no problem with the clutch. I do wish the CD changer digital read-out was easier to see. My only problem with this car is the convertible lock down system. I also drive on some bumpy dirt roads & the convertible top shakes & shimmys more than it should. There are also some serious blind spots to watch for. I love my mag wheels & the Bullet sound! Not much winter driving tho.

Love it, Drive it, Beat it, Race it.

I have now owned my 2005 Mustang GT Coupe for 2 1/2 years and have put 91,000 miles on it. I bought it brand new and I love this car. I drive it extremely hard and the only things that have had to be replaced on the car were because of my driving habbits. I race the car on weekends and power shift daily. I am on my second transmission and 4th clutch because I am so hard on it. 1st trans warranty replaced. The alternators stink on this car. Had one replaced under warranty. Need another. It causes a cam shaft sensor problem but oh well I still love the car. Overall I give it a 10 and love driving the car 100 miles every day for work and for pleasure on the weekends. It's built Ford tough!

I love my car!

I bought this car as a present to myself for getting my graduate degree. I'm a single mom and so tired of being practical! My kids and I love cranking the music and putting the top down! There are a few small things I'd change but I have so much fun with this car. Even ordered a vanity plate!

Our '05 Supercharged Mustang GT Premium is a real blast to drive! We loved the stock 300 H.P. Stang as it came, after we added the Vortech SQ polished Supercharger with the matching air-to-water intercooler she really came to life! The Supercharger with the intercooler is the answer to serious Stang 500 H.P. The Vortech is a real addition to the beauty of this car as well. We show it in the local CA. car shows and people always flock around to check it out.We take people out for a little test drive and they are always so surprized at the power this Stang will display."I'm still shaking" is not uncommon. In terms of bang for the buck, you can't beat the supercharged Stang!

This is my first and last Mustang

It is not a performance car. It is very slow at the start and feels very heavy; it has "no" traction control though they claim it has ( I wonder do they really understand what that is); driver's seat is very uncomfortable for longer rides; visibility is very poor; a heating system takes forever to clear the back window and side mirrors (and it turns itself off in just a few minutes); the AC unit stinks because the engine heats the interior greatly; the sound system is junk probably in all respects; the cup holders location is useless if you have a stick; glove compartment is a joke; and mileage (WOW) 12.5 per gallon(city and freeway) - that's a scam.Think twice.

This has got to be the most boring car I have ever owned. The inside is disgusting! Worse design I have ever seen in a car. It looks like something from the 70's with no form. Everything is just flat and boring. As for driving... the horse power is ok. With some aftermarket mods you can make it handle and move a lot better. It's better than the old mustang but no where near European or Japanese sports cars. Still can't take corners at anything like the speed a car like this should. Outside design is cool but doesn't make up for the rest of the car. Problems; several electrical connections weren't connected in the factory. Wheel and tire problems with shuddering, replaced O2 sensor already.

I have always bought Fords, but this one is junk. I garage and care for my car. Serviced only through Ford, I do not beat on this thing and for some unknown reason: 1) The battery dies 2) Car decides to stop running 3) Brakes lock up. My next car is a Toyota. If Ford goes belly up after 5 years, they brought it on themselves.

Had this car for 2 years. Many problems started developing after one year. One was the fuel gage...I'd fill the tank all the way and the gauge showed zero then went to full and back and fourth a few different times. Then the battery died leaving me stranded at work. At least thats what Ford said it was...it turned out to be the alternator which left me stranded again! And the list goes on. The car was fun, everyone seemed to like it, but the same old Ford issues kept coming back to annoy me.

Be sure to tell your wife to adjust the seat so she can depress the clutch all the way to floor for each shift and for starting car. Frantic call #(1) "Car won't start" Frantic call #(2) "Rear windows are down and I do not know how to make them go up. Frantic call #(3) overhead light won't go off and rear windows are down again. Explained the lights will go off automatically after you exit the door and showed her the little buttons to turn off/on individual lights. Also explained button that makes top go up and down and if pushed will make rear windows go down. Why didn't I tell her before? I had to sell the 5 speed and thought the A/C and rear defrost and electric seats was a success.

After 19 months, this car is still the one I have always dreamed of. I knew I was going to buy one as soon as I started reading articles about it a year before it came out. I still get looks and positive comments all the time. I am glad I went for the GT instead of the V6 because it truly has the Mustang "roar". The stability is fantastic and it feels like it glides from lane to lane. I added an "Airhog" air filter and I now get 34 mpg average, which is fantastic for a V8. I love the pick up when merging or turning into traffic. It is also quite roomy for a 2 door. At age 60 and female, this is my first "status" car and I hope to own it for the rest of my driving days.

I had been yearning for a Mustang for several years and finally realized that life was too short not to have it! I am now more in love with muscle cars than ever before and wish that I could have gotten the 8 cylinder (insurance wanted too much). Unfortunately, I do mostly NYC street driving to and from work 5 days/week. A real joy when I am driving around upstate NY. I never have to think twice about lane changes or pulling onto any highway. At first, it takes muscle to drive this car's stick. So much fun to break it in though. I got a lot of attention in 2005 when I first got the car. Best looking rear end on a car ever!

Last year my husband decided he wanted to trade in my minivan (lol) for this Mustang, well over all I love the Mustang, looks good, drives good (love the handling) except for it revving up (not sure if it's because it's a manual) when you go to stop, only happens occasionally. The CD player jumps which I heard that was common for the Shaker 500. And well ,it's just unpractical for a family. Though it looks nice and you get a lot of thumbs up we just gotta let it go.

I have never spoken with more strangers or had more people talk cars with me than when I started driving this '05 Mustang GT convertible last year. It has called for so much attention because of its incredible beauty! It has awesome power and iI never fear pulling out at intersections anymore because NOW I KNOW I can make the turn without getting in someone's way. I GO! "She goes!" Entering and exiting military posts has guards drooling over this gorgeous retro Stang. With the top down, folks pull up beside me and start chatting about it. I just wish I had bought this earlier in the year to enjoy it longer!

I've owned this car for just over 3 months and have had nothing but problems. The car has been out of service for almost 40 days. Just got the car back from the dealer on Friday, they had it for 26 consecutive days and can't fix a clicking/popping sound in the front end. Called Ford technical service and are sending a tech in on 11/01/06 to look at the car. The headliner is falling out -now held in place with cardboard shims, rear axle bearings and seals replaced, front and rear rotors already turned, rear quarter windows replaced because of rusty screws holding the weather strips, parking break lever replaced, finish coming of the chrome a/c vent, rocker moldings loose and the list goes on.

I bought a 2005 Premium Convertible. My first car I've bought on my own. So far I've had it in twice for the fuel pump and I'm taking it in to get the top replaced because the rear defroster stopped working. I've had the gear shifter replaced in it. I'm not happy camper with this car. If it wasn't for all these problems, I'd absolutely love this car. Rides great, minus the time it stopped running on the middle of I-95. Love driving with the top down, love the audio in it. Maybe I just got a bad pony. But I won't ever buy a Ford again, the service is awful.

Had my car for 4 days and drove it twice before I noticed a knock from the wheels as I made some hard turns, any direction will do, from a stationary position. I was told that the manufacturer was aware of this "ping" but doesn't know how to fix because they don't know where it's coming from. Since this unknown "ping" is from the steering, I guess I'll have to pray real hard for a safe trip in my new car.

I have the 2005 Mustang Deluxe and have been amazed with the car. The handling, looks/style, performance and most of all, the great highway gas mileage. I get about 32 miles to the gallon on the highway which is very satisfactory. I have owned many cars since the 1960s and never have I had so many people of all ages compliment my car like this 05 Mustang. The trunk is roomy, the handling and improved driver positioning is so much better than the 02 Mustang I had.

1.5 years, 26k miles and I LOVE this car! Cruises like a BMW 540i and sounds way more cool! Handling is as good as a solid axle can get. Retro interior is comfortable and looks great. Good quality leather, although the plastics could use improvement. Shaker 1000 kicks butt for a stock system. Build quality is good for the price range and greatly improved over the older Mustangs (this makes #5 for me). It's not quite as fast or torquey as my LS1 Trans-Am, but WAY better quality. Has only been to the shop once for something very minor. Gas mileage leaves a little to be desired, but I would have bought a Honda or something if I cared about that. SWEET CAR!

I had major rattling in the dash, the driver's seat pops, the sending unit had to be replaced because my gas kept showing empty when it was full. The gas went over when I was filling, or just stopped when it was 1/2 full and wouldn't go anymore. The transmission is AWFUL! It acts like it's in neutral and revs sometimes while I'm driving it, or just taking off; then CLUNKS into gear. Nobody can fix it, they can't figure it out. It shifts very hard. And the other day the abs locked up on one wheel when I started it up, METAL-ON-METAL grinding; after a lil bit of going back and forth and slamming on the brakes it quit, took it to the shop, they couldn't' figure anything out. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

I have never been so happy with a vehicle. I'm a 44 year old former 'hot rodder' who has owned several muscle cars from the 1960's and 70's. The 2005 Mustang represents the best of all those cars but on a modern platform that you can drive everyday under full warranty. I have nothing but praise for how it looks, drives and makes me feel when I'm behind the wheel. This car rocks with a capital 'R'. How Ford managed to combine the retro styling, with practical driveability, awesome performance and comfort, plus head turning good looks while remaining the lowest priced 300HP car out there is pure genius!

I traded my v-8 stang for the more economical v-6. I enjoy driving this car as I am on the interstate every day going to work. I miss the sound of my v-8, but I definitely don't miss the premium gas or gas mileage it got. The 2005 is very good on gas, and of course, a Mustang is not a Mustang if it's an automatic. Therefore, I can still squeal the tires in this 5 speed if I have to! I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't race anyone in this car, hence the much better gas mileage, but at 30 mpg, I'd say my little red stang keeps up with them foreign cars in that area. As for the look of the car, it's absolutely beautiful, and makes me feel good driving it!

This is one of the best looking cars at any price. It has been flawless. Factory stereos could be better, but I do like the MP3 option. Lots of thumbs up and positive comments about this car. I have the GT with the 5 speed auto. I've never driven a car that was such a blast to simply drive! Gas mileage is not too bad on the highway, but in stop and go conditions it drops down pretty quickly, 24 mpg highway, 16.5 mpg around town, but I drive with a heavy-ish foot -- with this car it's hard not to. I would buy another without a second thought, way to go Ford!

My wife and I both have 2005 mustangs and both have some of the same problems. Both cd players skip and will not play the cd at times. Both had to have rear windows replaced because they distorted the view out of them. Both have a harmonic vibration in the exhaust system that ford has no fix for it, the one that I drive has a noisy rear end {gear noise}. So much for improving quality. Ford seems to think sell cars the heck with quality.

The car has been a pleasure to own. It rides really well especially compared to previous years for the Mustang. The interior is a little cheap even for trying to be retro looking.

My title says it all. I wasn't in the market to buy when I did. The retro styling, six cylinder gutsy engine and tough automatic transmission did it for me. It has way better performance and gas mileage than the 1996 Mustang GT I owned previously. Getting into the car is a little tough sometimes in the winter with a winter jacket on, but once in the cockpit it's wonderful. The sound system is killer and much better than in the house. The frontward curved head rests are a pain. I have driven only about 4500 miles in it since purchasing, but I want to keep low miles because of the investment potential for this car. Of all the cars and trucks I have owned, this one is the most fun.

My first Mustang (I'm 42 yrs, male); finally could afford it but more than that, I loved the new look. I love everything except the plastic look on the doors and the Shaker 500 Radio, which sometimes works crazy (doesn't respond to keys, doesn't read a brand new CD(?), or skips and goes back a couple of seconds without reason, or simply won't turn off and other crazy things. Everything else, is a great car!

This car's wonderful and a ton of fun to drive! I owned a 2002 Mustang, but get to reap some wonderful improvements in the '05, including bigger (and more responsive) engine, the interior styling, and the premium audio system. Mine came with a Magnaflow double cat-back exhaust system giving the V6 the V8 look with a nice loud roar. I average about 20 miles to the gallon; probably isn't too bad, but not stellar either ... though not the reason you buy one. For someone like me (no kids) looking for an affordable, fast car, nice sound, leather seats and a head turner, this car is perfect and a nice compliment to my girlfriend's Acura TL. :)

It would take me all day to describe everything I love about this car. As a faithful Mustang lover, and owner of several, Ford has really outdone themselves with the 05 GT. Handles great, plenty of power, and looks awesome. I have already driven the car a little over 37,000 miles, and let me tell you, I've enjoyed every mile! It's a pleasure to drive when you have a car this B-E-A-utiful!

The car is an overall disappointment. I wish I could give it back. Not a good buy, definitely just spend the extra money for the GT! The car runs fine now but I wouldn't count on it like a Honda. With all of the other options out there, make sure you do your research first before deciding what car is perfect for you.

This car is Mustang through and through. I bought this car because it reminded me so much of my 1967 coupe. I love the retro styling, and the performance fantastic. This is not a "bells and whistles" car. If you start comparing it to other mid-sizes, it won't win many categories. That being said, this is the ultimate ride for muscle car fans, and especially for Mustang aficionados.

I bought this car in the Fall/Winter so I didn't get to much seat time, so once the snow was gone, the fun began, I drove the car to Nashville and back, (roughly 1200 miles). The car drove flawlessly, handles well, stops great, mileage not too bad, 18-25mpg depending on my right foot. For the price I think it is a great car. Heated seat would be nice; it's a Mustang so I am not goong to whine about the interior. It is a far cry better the the past Mustangs. The IUP package is a nice touch. Very solid feel, very tight.

Looks great. No goodies like some of the new cars, but it's a sports car. Radio is great (500). Only problem is that the engine is cutting out at high speeds. Ford said that it's a gas mixture problem. Most likely where I'm getting gas. Doesn't seem right to me since I have 2 cars and 1 truck all using the same gas and this is the only car having a problem. In fact my whole family is getting gas there with no problems. Ford tested the gas and did not find a problem with it but that's still what they have came up with. One other problem was that the trunk was setting off the door is ajar light. Ford adjusted it.

Ford outdid themselves. This car is awesome. I've owned quite a few Stangs since "65" and this is the best looking and performing. It turns heads and is a blast to drive. It's a little crowded for carpooling, but my carpoolers love it. I can't wait to drive it everyday. The only thing I would suggest is an inside trunk release and optional fog lights for the V6. The car's got some serious power for a six and gas mileage is pretty good. The auto tranny slips on occasion, but dealership told me that's normal. I'll get it checked at a different dealer. You got get yourself one of these!

My driving review is sort of biased as I buy mostly Ford products because I have mostly good experience with the vehicle and the dealers I have visited. The Mustang is reminiscent of another era in my driving experience. It is safer and more reliable that the cars of the 60's, but reminds me of them. I have a 1965 Mustang and it is neat to have them side by side and 40 years apart.

We waited patiently for our Mustang to arrive. Three other individuals waited behind us in case our purchase did not go through. We drove away the happy owners of the 2005 Mustang GT Premium in Screaming Yellow. We chose to add the racing stripe package to complete the look. We get lots of compliments,with most people saying the Screaming Yellow looks the best. After a few weeks of driving it, we began to notice a popping noise coming from the front wheel area. The noise was most noticeable when turning slowly or backing and turning. Service department adjusted steering but noise continued to increase. Problem turned out being the upper strut bearing assembly which the service department replaced.

2005 Roush GT Sonic Blue Convertible. Having spent much of my late teens and early 20's restoring '67 & '68 Mustang's, I was blown away when I first saw the 2005 retro Mustang. Naturally, I had to have one and bought myself a birthday present in June 05. I have about 2500 miles on the car and it has been flawless. It's great fun to drive and Roush has tweaked the car just right, from the exhaust to the ground effects. It's spooky, but I feel as if I'm sitting in my '68 Fastback, albeit a greatly improved version. With the flood of after market products becoming available by the minute, it will no doubt keep me busy again. Can't wait to blow the doors off any retro Camaro or Cuda we may yet see!

I have about 4,000 miles on it now in 4 months, projecting 10,000. I usually only drive about 8,000 miles a year. But this car makes me want to take the long way home! It's fast, it's comfortable, it handles very nicely. The build quality is first rate. Not a single problem or "issue".... that's amazing for a new design itself. Materials (plastic) are par for the price range, but the looks and performance are an absolute bargain. I have the 5 speed automatic GT. Very slick, smooth AND firm shifting. Gas mileage is good on the highway, so-so in town (as expected). Get it, you'll love it!

Also if you are not used to the transmission shifting this car can be difficult. The tranny sometimes makes a clunking noise when shifting.

The first car I've actually loved to own and drive. Lots of torque over a broad range of RPM's. Great fun to drive. Responsive steering, tight turning ratio. Fast gearbox. Gut-satisfying rumble. Beautiful to look at, fine styling inside and out. A street machine built for the straightaways, rather than a sports car built for the curves (rolls a bit). Rear single-axle bounces on bumps. Surprisingly civilized ride. Comfortable driver's seat, so-so passenger's seat, cramped back seats. Good but not great stereo. Cut to a price point, with some lack of amenities and space, such as small trunk and glove compartment, limited storage spaces inside. Interior upgrade a must. Recommend side air bag.

This Mustang was made on 04 April and arrived on 22 April. Two major problems; one being the gas tank and error message. A new sensor has been added to the gas tank but the problem still exists with the gauge showing 1/2 tank when the tank in full. The second problem is the transmission slipping into neutral for about a second lately while the shifter is in drive, then bumping into gear. Transmission is being replaced under warranty.

At 61 years old and recently a widower, I asked my children if they thought I was going through a second childhood since I was considering purchasing a new Mustang GT convertible. They all said if that's what you want, go for it. I did. I had planned a trip to Las Vegas and decided to extend the trip and drive. I made a two week trip covering 5500 miles from Georgia to California averaging 23.5 mpg and drove over 1000 miles on two different days. The weather was great, the car performed flawlessly, and the ride was very comfortable. This car is not the fastest or most expensive on the road, but dollar for dollar is a fantastic value and a super performer. I'm looking forward to the GT500.

Everyone gets excited when they see the new Ford Mustang. It has a gorgeous body style, but to me, that is it. It gets poor gas mileage. Diagnostic says 21 mpg, I only get 12-15. A number of problems which Ford keeps saying "normal characteristics", which another dealer will say differently. The gas tank has been replaced twice and I still have problems filling it up and they refuse to put in a third tank, but technically, I have had three different gas tanks in the car.

Complaints are numerous: keys are too low and hit my knee, pedal pads slip easily, shifter is vague and clunky, engine lacks bottom end torque, rear suspension is jumpy and produces a choppy, busy ride on most surfaces, shocks are tuned for "Cadillac" ride and not performance handling, making for bad body roll. Gauges are buried in dash making for difficult daytime readability. Car is rather large and heavy compared with past Mustangs. Other than those items, a great, well built car.

I bought this V6 5 speed as a replacement for a 2002 V6 5 speed that I really love. (I still have the 2002, now driven by my son.) The '05 is a huge disappointment: the drive train constantly knocks, clunks, growls, and whines. (The '02 does none of this). The dealer agreed that it is bad; replaced the transmission with no improvement, and now tells me it's normal and I'll just have to live with it. Maybe the automatics are better, but DO NOT buy this car with a manual transmission unless you like lots of noise.

This is a great car, and lots of fun to drive. First sports car I've ever had, and let me tell you it is very powerful. You really have to use the cruise control to maintain legal speed. You don't feel like your speeding. I have the Red Fire Red with standard 17 inch wheels, standard interior with Shaker 500 system, which sounds great. I have 6300 miles on it, and I have not had any problems with it. Overall, it is a great car to drive and just go cruising. Lots of people come up to me and want to look and hear the machine. Gas mileage is not too good, but reasonable. One minute negative is that the amplifier gets very hot with the windows down and you can feel it in your legs.

Can't forget those side airbags and the active anti-theft for the insurance break. With the new body style it is a head turner from its shiny black exterior to its trippy old style rims. The driving experience is wonderful, hard to put into words really, but you could judge by the big grin on my face each time I drive it. The MPG advertised was accurate; I get about 17 city and up to 25 freeway... the main difference is I WANT to drive it and I take the long way just so I get to drive it more.

I purchased the vehicle in April of this year for $22,800, it's the first one that I have owned. I am very pleased with the fit and finish. The body style screams Mustang. It's sonic blue with white strips. Interior is tan with cloth seats and Shaker 500 stereo system. I was very surprised with the ride on the highway; it is very smooth with no wind noise -- in town it's a little bumpy. Performance is good for a V6. I get 19 MPG in town and 25.7 on the highway. I guess the only complaint that I have is the engine is a little buzzy around the 1700 RPM range, other than that it is an excellent buy.

I first read about the car last year and it reminded me of my '69. 5 months and 9000 miles later, it is my dream car. The distinction of my '69 with today's comfort and safety. The 5 speed manual isn't the smoothest around, but get it - an easy drop down to fourth and I am gone in traffic. Handling is spot on; I love taking curves in this thing. With upgrades, great interior/exterior styling cues; hardly a day goes by without a look, smile or comment. Averaging 23-26 MPG. The stereo sounds great and I can drive for hours either on cruise control or through traffic with a wide smile. Trunk holds golf bag, softball bags and groceries with ease, but not for a family of 4.

I have had my 2005 GT for three months and 6500 miles, and man what a ride. This is my fourth Mustang, having had a '67, '69 and '74, this is by far the best. I live on the north coast of California, The roads here are built for this car, lots of curve and twists along Highway 101 and through the redwoods put this car to the test and man, what a ride. I recently took a trip to San Francisco and got 23 miles to a gallon, and I was not driving slow. In and out of traffic the car is a blast to drive and it does get a lot of looks and thumbs up from folks along the way. Would recommend this car to anyone who takes pleasure in driving.

I love this car! It has a great retro look and a lot of get up and go for a V- 6. This is my third Mustang; my first was a 1966 convertible and my second (my first new car) was a 1982 L sedan. My 2005 Mustang tops them both! I've only had one problem with the car -- the power lock on the passenger side doesn't work and hasn't since day one. Since I'm usually the only one in the car, I've arranged to get it fixed on my first service visit.

I bought a 2005 Mustang GT and it by far is the greatest car I ever owned. I had a 2001 Mustang 5 speed and my new one is an automatic and I thought I'd be missing out but the 5-speed transmission makes up for it. It is a very fast and fun car for an affordable price. The interior is nice if you get the upgraded interior package. It has a very comfortable ride for a sports car and unlike some sport cars it doesn't sit so low you think you're driving a go cart. I think Ford gets an A+ for this one.

it's a ten!

I have had several Mustangs, including a 1985 and my favorite, a 1966. This is one of the funnest vehicles I have driven. The only complaint was the brakes squealing. I had it in the shop 3 times and I finally replaced the factory brake pads with ceramic pads -- problem solved. Now I have no complaints except for the speed limit signs.

The '06 Mustang is awesome. A few changes from 2005; two new colors and wheels that now sport the pony logo instead of the Ford emblem. My car is Tungsten Gray, a new Mustang color that looks different under different light conditions. At midday it's silver metallic with a light blue tone. At dusk it takes on a faint purple tone and sometimes it looks silver gray.The retro styling is very cool. I catch people checking it out all the time. If you don’t want to attract a lot of attention wherever you go don’t buy a Mustang! As for performance WOW! From the rumble to the grip of the Pirelli performance tires as you navigate turns. Plenty of awesome power to get your license into trouble.

Before purchasing a manual make sure to test drive both automatic and manual and see and feel the difference. I test-drove the manual and found that because of the small windows it increases the blind spots. I ended up buying the automatic and haven't regretted it yet.

The fourth Mustang I've owned, and by far the fastest and most comfortable. The 300hp engine does ok on gas if you keep your foot out of it, but when you wanna GO, hold on! Ford, as usual, has designed a cheap and lousy interior. While the seats are comfortable black leather, the fit and finish of the remainder of the cabin is horrendous. A seam cuts across the burnished aluminum dash. The auto shifter has a cheap seam across the top. The sides of the seats are easily scratched by the back adjustment lever. The plastic chrome on the dash air vents should have been made of real metal. The car's a great driving experience, with stellar performance, but the interior is shoddy.

I ordered in December. from a dealer that had no allocation. Re-ordered in April, finally arrived June. Top ripped around window, factory just replaced. The A/C was better (colder) in my 2000. No inside glove box truck release. Why only 1 rear window switch for both. The key rubs your leg (should be higher). Shaker 1000 not worth the money, besides eats trunk space. Quiet, fast, good looking; no doubt this car is a classic. Even with the faults, where could you buy a better car for the money? Headlights are great for the back roads. Backseat not bad in a pinch.This car stands out in a crowd.

This is my second Mustang, and I hope it this one last forever! I traded my '99 v6 for a used '05 GT with 11K miles. I love the 300hp engine on the highway, it just begs to go faster! The growling exhaust noise lets others know to get outta way. Once you hit 60 mph, the growl goes away, but you'll hardly notice as you fly by others with ease. Shaker 500 is loud enough, My Color with trip computer is a nice guy toy to have. Leather seats & interior are fantastic. Car has a lean forward stance that makes it look like the rear end might be jacked up a little. Looks like there will be hundreds of ways to customize your Stang. Ford seems to have got this makeover right!

I can't decide what I like best about this car. I have had so many people stop and look at the car and just say "it's beautiful". Then I hop in and drive; it's a blast, it just rips off the line and handles crisply. The seats are comfortable and the wind noise is better than my old Miata. The only disappointment is the Shaker 500 stereo; it lacks sophistication and the CD player is very finicky with MP3 discs. The door mounted sub-woofers cause the door handles to vibrate and hum when handling low frequencies.

The car's unbelievably powerful. And it looks great. But in typical Mustang design, the interior is cheap, plastic and does not hold the promise of durability. There's an obnoxious seam across the top of the auto shifter. The rear passenger leather seat is missing stitching in three seams. The lever to move the seat back scratches and digs into the side panel. So the car will do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds. That's great, but the interior design and quality ... horrible.

I bought the GT Premium with all the upgrades. The 1000 watt System is awesome, although the 6 disk is a little confusing to load. The horsepower is great and I find it hard not to want to really hit. The interior is very nice, although my leg tends to hit the center column and I am a small person. The trunk is very large, even with the Speaker box. I love this car and have owned a 1967 fastback, 1990 convertible and now a 2005 and the 2005 is the best yet. Hope you enjoy........

I had no intention of getting a small car, I was actuallly looking at Xterras but when they introduced the new mustang I couldn't resist driving one. My windviel blue mustang is the best car I have ever owned. Head room in the backseat is not there if you are over 5'. The shaker 500 is awesome. The interior is really cool only because of the interior upgrade package, w/out it, there is acres of black plastic on the dash. decent power for the price. I don't know how I will ever part from this car.

The new Ford Mustang is an awesome car. I really like the exterior looks and the feel of the car when you drive it. The car is really great for a single person, but it is a tight squeeze for a family. The front of the car is very roomy, although the rear seat does not have much room. I was willing to deal with the size although I have a family just because I loved the looks of the car. Overall I am happy and very pleased with the performance of my new Mustang. The inside of the car is pretty small but that was a sacrifice I was willing to make to own a car I love.

Went to the dealer looking to see what was left. Late July usually the stock is out. Spotted a Roush in Windveil Blue and I was sold. Took it for a fast test ride and didn't need to even talk. The dealer put it into the discount package and the price was great. This car sounds like a Mustang should. Accelerates and almost begs you to hit it harder. Handling is outstanding. The only drawback is the passenger seat is low, but who cares. I won't be in that seat anyway, and the only trunk operation is on the remote or key. BTW, the trunk fits the golf clubs perfectly, so how could I say no.

The vehicle is built extremely tight, no rattles, no wind noise. The styling speaks to the heritage of the Mustang; no longer is it just the next generation, it has started a new trend in the classic style. The attention rating is off the scale. The sound, the style, the aggressive look -- it is the car to have.

We weren't planning on buying a Mustang, just taking a look, but the price was right and the retro style was too good to pass up. We are very pleased with the way the car handles. It has lots of get up and go, and there is no roll when cornering. The Shaker 500 sound system is an excellent stereo and the car is very comfortable when driving long distances. We love the retro look, but never would have guessed how many people would stare when we drive by; it's a real head turner. This car is a keeper, we plan to own it for a long time.

When the new GT came out, I just wanted it and ordered one. Never before had I even driven a Mustang. The day the dealer called to say my car had arrived, I expected the courtesy van to pick me up. Instead, the sales guy picked me up in my new car. When he pulled up, I fell totally in love with it. In Windveil Blue with the five spoke competition style wheels (the "boy wheels" my friends and I say), the car is fabulous looking. I am astounded by the attention it attracts. On a daily basis strangers in cars and on foot express how they love the car. If you want attention, don't get a Ferrari, Mercury or BMW. Get a new GT and rediscover the fun of driving.

I have been a muscle car fanatic for over 30 years and this is Mustang number 6 for me. I have to say that Ford has hit a grand slam with this one. From styling, performance, build quality to driving experience. It is not a luxury car. It is not a true performance car. It is the American icon of muscle cars. For the money, it is truly the best driving experience one can imagine. It is purely and simply, Mustang.

In 1965, it was fun to drive and in 2005 the excitement is still there, as well as still attracts attention when you get around other people. This is also the first American made vehicle that I have purchased in years that I did not write a page of items for the dealer to fix. I have gone over this car three times looking for defects and only found one; the dealer did not install the locking wheel nuts. Performance -- have been able to pass anyone that I have wanted to whenever I have wanted to.

In a word, wow. Twice the horsepower (300 vs 150) of my V6. Retro skinning, but in a real modern package. I drive the car every day to and from work and people constantly comment on how much they like the car. It's remarkably practical and easy to drive given its amazing performance, and gets pretty good mileage for such a hot performing car. I love it!

If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up; even if only for a test drive or as a rental car. This car will make even the biggest nerd feel like a star! I have been in love with these cars for as long as I can remember and this car is the only one that I would even consider categorizing as one of my favorite cars, beside the original ‘64 1/2 red with white wall tires and white leather interior and a white convertible top, with all original parts.

Customer service is a 2. All this talk about the V8 being so great ... well I test drove it and thought it was too masculine and loud for a female's taste! In addition, I requested to exchange a hood with no spoiler. I love the new design of the Ford Mustang with its smooth lines .... without the spoiler and the fog lights (gag - gag and gag.) This look is the "real" Mustang." Love the Windveil blue. Best idea is to purchase the car with cloth seats and then upgrade leather at dealer's cost - only $1163.00

I have people stop me all the time with questions about my car. I've wanted THIS Mustang since 1969, and couldn't be happier with it. The only negatives I can think of would be the front seat headrests. Could have been designed to be more comfortable, I think. And I have a 5-speed and I think someone with longer arms would have trouble shifting comfortably, especially if they had something in the cupholder. Everything else is perfection!

The 2005 Mustang GT surpasses my other five Mustang purchases -- all GTs. From the moment it is placed in drive, the responsiveness is unparalleled. Handling is superb although the ride is a bit rough. The body workmanship is noticeably well done, e.g., no gaps or ripples and everything fits well. The downside are the front seats, i.e., the head rests are too far forward causing both a pain in the neck and a back ache when driving for any distance. While the seat is adjustable in virtually every direction it could move, no setting produces a comfortable ride -- the headrest is not adjustable. Still, for the price, it's probably the best sports buy of the American market.

What a beauty! I have never seen anything attract more stares, than this beautiful screaming yellow Mustang. Great gas mileage, runs smooth, reliable, etc. This beautiful retro version of the 1969 Mustang has the appearance of the 1969 dashboard, that is a real looker. Old and young alike are buying these cars, and if you can find one, buy it!! I understand that Ford has quit making them and they are getting ready for the 2006. I hope they don't copy this one. It is an original and a beauty. I find people taking pictures of it wherever I go. I am going to car shows soon and "cruise the gut" with old friend, in my retro mach Mustang. It has brought a lot of joy to my life!

This car is awesome for the money. I Love it so much. I have to be careful with it or a I will get a ticket from the nice policeman! We own a 1970 Mach 1 and it looks just like it. The car makes me smile every time I drive it. If you are thinking of getting one, good luck and get the GT with a standard transmission. There is a lot of aftermarket for this car to make it even sweeter than it is.

My new Mustang is the GT with an automatic tranny. It is a great looker and an even better performer. The back seat is too small for anyone to sit in except for children, but the front seats are very comfortable. I only have a few hundred miles on my Mustang and everything was and is working just fine. No complaints. There was a long wait for the car (3 1/2 months). It was worth the wait!

I just got my V6 Convertible in June and must admit that I haven't been able to keep my hands off the steering wheel since! The ride is very stable. There is almost no "pull" through tight turns. The rear wheel drive makes the ride smooth on bumpy New England roads and I don't have to worry about spilling my coffee. The instrument panel design is great. No clutter and easy to read. Driving this car is exhilarating and fun. I have to get used to "thumbs up" signals, "nice car", "wow", and the likes comments and lots of stares from fellow drivers :). Negative side is that everyone wants to race you (and I am too old for that type of stuff...).

Between my wife and myself, we have ownership experience with close to 40 automobiles. We have owned 2, 2005 Mustangs in under 3 months. We traded our silver convertible when we went for the first oil change, and were shown a beautiful torch red, loaded, V-6 convertible. The stick handles smoothly. The engine has great punch for a 6. The silver was an automatic, and was also very pleasing to drive. These autos corner and change lanes with agility. The leather seats of our red are much more comfortable than the cloth, with more padding where it counts.

This is a really cool car. Love to drive it. We get a lot of stares. The color is what grabs your attention. It is a cool blue with beige interior. I think Ford would sell more of these if they would target women with the lighter interior color as oppose to the typical black. This baby takes off when needed. It reminds me of my 1981 V6 280Z. Love that car. I think the GT is really a waste of power. Where will you be able to open it up without looking over your shoulders?

I love my car; I think the power is wonderful considering it is only a V6 and its great fun to drive. Turns heads all the time. Reliability has been fine so far, no problems besides a few small things Ford was still working out. Just a little sensor that needed to be replaced. The look is what I went for. We all know that Ford and Chevy can not compare to Honda or Toyota on overall reliability and the Mustang is still not as refined as the Accord or Camry, but neither of those cars would make me nearly as happy or put that smile on my face to drive every day.

Waited 3 months, but it was well worth the wait. I ordered without having driven a GT or a convertible. I am thrilled. The car is comfortable, powerful, & looks terrific. The exhaust sound is almost worth the price by itself. I get stares wherever I go. Ford has done a tremendous job on the Mustang at realistic prices. The interior upgrade package does a decent job of minimizing the plastic look & feel of the cockpit, although I would have been willing to spend a bit more for a little more luxury inside & a passenger seat with power controls.

The car overall is fabulous. The only sticking point is the radio (Shaker 500) and the heater control unit. I've had 4 radios in the car and it still doesn't work correctly. The heater control unit pumps air through the defrost and feet even when it isn't on. Ford's response? Tell the customer that's how it is supposed to work. That's simple irresponsible to say. My service manager allowed me to hear that on a phone call to Ford. Unbelievable. Shame on Ford for that. Now that doesn't mean I dislike the car, its fabulous and a blast to drive. Just hate the company for thinking so little of their loyal customers.

My new Mustang V6 performs very well and above my expectations. The acceleration is very impressive for a 210-horse V6 and the exhaust sounds great. The brakes are comfortably responsive and perform as sports car brakes should. Handling is not as quick as a 350Z or a couple other Japanese sports cars, but I realize that my Mustang is larger and heavier than those cars. The automatic transmission shifts quickly and with ease. The ride is comfortable, but I'm reminded on long trips that I'm driving a sports car and not a luxury car. The rear seats are typical of Mustangs and are somewhat comfortable as long as you are 5'10' or less. I am very happy with my purchase of the 2005 Mustang V6!

Ford finally got it right with the Mustang. The retro look brought me into the dealership to take a closer look. I have never had such a fun car to drive. Even though I have the great Shaker 1000 stereo system I spend most of my time listening to the growl of the engine. The car has great performance and handling characteristics off the show room floor. Make sure to get the 5 speed manual transmission as this is a true driver's car. With a few inexpensive bolt on upgrades and a computer reflash this car becomes a serious rocket and will easily pull low 13s in the quarter mile.

I love my new Mustang, it's a wonderfully smooth ride, it's beautiful, it turns heads. It definitely goes when you hit the gas, but I think I should have paid for the extra 90 horsepower. The traction control is great when it kicks in and I do like playing with the MyColor feature. I find the Shaker 500 is an adequate stereo system -- I don't think the 1000 pays off. The seats and everything seem a little big at first for a female, but now it's hard for me to drive my other car. So far the antitheft hasn't done anything, so I don't know much about that. I do love knowing how many miles per gallon I am getting and that sort of thing. Its a fun car- but get a GT.

I absolutely love this vehicle. Ford did a fantastic job redesigning the mustang. The v6 offers plenty of power for me, and if you are doing a lot of stop and go traffic, you'll want the v6 anyway for mpg reasons. One thing I would highly recommend is the Interior Upgrade Package. In my opinion, it adds so much more to the interior look.

Have had other convertibles in the past - this one is by far THE most fun to drive! Exterior is stylish with that retro feel. Interior is more comfortable than I expected (unless you are in the rear seat). Car is surprisingly quiet even when driving with the top and all windows down - you can actually hold a normal conversation. Engine is strong and transmission is smooth ( 5 speed automatic). While cruising the engine is pretty quiet - when you step on the gas you'll hear that throaty rumble that lets you know what's under the hood. This car really is a blast to drive.

Driving home after looking for a new car, with nothing particularly catching my eye, I saw IT and as they say "the rest is history." Before, a car was just a car. Driving was a task not a pleasure. Those ways of thinking are long gone. One word of advice ... BE CAREFUL ... the power of this v-6 is amazing. This car will fly with no effort or strain. If speeding is a problem for you, I hope you have cruise. Boy, I would be in big trouble with a V- 8. :-)

My husband says I have an unnatural emotional attachment to this car. A rear-wheel-drive convertible is not the most practical vehicle for Montana, but I don't care! I am in love with this car. I'm having my mid-life crisis early (while I can still enjoy it). This car is an absolute BLAST to drive (top up or top down). I have always wanted a red Mustang convertible (my grandpa had a '64 1/2 baby blue Mustang coupe) and never thought I would be able to afford one. Not only is this car gorgeous, but it's AFFORDABLE!

The Mustang GT drives great and looks fantastic. It has very comfortable seats and is a pleasure to cruise in on the highway. I think its ultimate handling abilities exceed my willingness to explore them but when pushed through the twisties this car would probably put certain 2 seater sports cars to shame. With the 5 speed manual, the acceleration is outstanding and the incredible exhaust note under power makes the car a total blast to drive. Another thing I have noticed over the 4 months I have owned this car is that almost everyone who sees it, rides in it, or drives it wants one too. My wife loves the car too and we are extremely pleased with our purchase (our first Mustang by the way).

The car is pure fun to drive. The exhaust, wind in your face, acceleration is pure American Muscle; all this in a package that seats four and carries two plus sets of golf clubs in the trunk. What more can you ask for? The price is right. Exterior is stunning and performance dead on. I do wish Ford had spent another $2,000 to finish out the interior. I would gladly have paid for less plastic and more quality there. Overall, this car is a must have!

Waited 6 weeks after ordering for delivery. V-6 Premium convertible. White with Parchment top and parchment leather, interior upgrade package, 5 speed auto, anti-lock brakes/traction control, exterior sport appearance package. Even non-Ford fans can`t help but take a second look and make positive comments. Neighborhood kids coming by to take a look. Power and shift ranges seems just about right for a v-6. After careful examination can't find any flaws with paint or fit of exterior parts. Still playing with the My Color dash light feature (can`t decide on color I like best).Top is getting easier to lock down after raising it as it stretches. Less than expected road noise with top up.

First of all, the car is beautiful. It has a wonderful retro look to it, and yet is styled for the modern consumer. The legend lime paint is a beautiful color and blends perfectly with the parchment interior and top. The leather seating is very comfortable.You are able to retract and replace the top with minimal effort. I was also surprised with the trunk room. It appeared to be small, but when I put in my files and bag for work I was surprised to see I still had room for much more in the trunk. The driving power was a pleasant surprise for a V-6, and the ability to turn so tightly with such stability is incredible. I am very happy with my purchase.

As there are still so few convertibles available we were lucky to get one and are we glad we did! It's screaming yellow just like all the print ads. I added the GT grill and fog lights and the car is a real head turner. We love it! The car is a blast to drive and the V6 has plenty of power. No need for a GT. This is the best Mustang to date.

I love the vehicle with three small exceptions. Two weeks after I took delivery one of the center caps flew off on the expressway. I ordered a new one from the dealership and it's been one week and it still isn't in. The second is the drainage set up around the deck lid. It drains down between the body and the back of the taillight and takes all the debris with it. I'm talking leaves,etc. I also think the shoulder harnesses could be more comfortable. They seem to catch everyone across their neck. Those are very small items and I'd recommend this car to anyone looking for something fun to drive. It turns a LOT of heads and is a real conversation starter with strangers!

Took eight weeks to take delivery. Worth the wait. Awesome looking car. My eight year old's little league team went bonkers over it. I have everyone from teenagers to seniors asking me about the car. The red leather interior is outrageous. Here in south Florida where expensive and exotic cars are the norm, the car stands out. The V-6 is more than sufficient power plant. Drives awesome in the city and cruises at speed without a whisper. Only cars I have owned as fun to drive have been Beemers or Jaguar.

This car is awesome. It's like "whoa!" It's a drastic improvement over both of my prior Mustangs (2000 & 2003 models). It doesn't even compare to either of them. There's so much room inside. The retro exterior styling is a definite head-turner. The rev of the engine puts a smile on my face. The screech of the tires as I go "zoom" makes my heart race. I feel like a kid with a new toy in my 'Stang. I think I'd live in my car if I could figure out how to permanently install my computer in it.

I have owned a 1965 and a 1969 Mustang but this car is a whole new experience. Haven't had so much fun and enjoyment in 30 years. Ford has really done a magnificent job with this PONY. The V6 I purchased has everything the GT has except fog lamps,dual exhaust, a V8 and 17 inch tires.

I ordered from the factory and waited five months for my pony to arrive. It was so worth it! I am so happy with this car. It looks amazing and still is one of a kind in my area. It is so much fun to drive. There is, as expected, limited back seat space. She doesn't get great gas mileage. However, she handles beautifully; love the real wheel drive, very sturdy around corners. Realistically, this is not a family car. It is a fun, play car. And she is more fun that words could adequately describe! Assuming you invest in a V8, 5 speed. and do something to personalize it and make it yours .... and be greedy about letting people drive it. It is rare and it IS YOURS!

If you're thinking of buying a car that is fast, comfortable, handles like no other car, and catches the eye of everyone on the road it is the 2005 Mustang GT. I ordered mine on my birthday on February 7th and I got the car on May 3rd. This was probably the best choice I ever made. I got black leather interior with interior upgrade. If you're going to get the car get the interior upgrade, it's the best $400 you will ever spend. On the outside I got torch red which when I'm driving on the road anywhere I go people stop me to look at it. The retro look makes it so catching and I suggest you to get into a 2005 Mustang GT.

This is my third Mustang. I started with a 6 cylinder. and never looked back. Number two was a GT and now I own the best looking 2005 GT made. White with red stripes. This is the greatest car I have ever owned. Power, performance and personality. From the red stripes to the red leather interior to the dash, this car says power. I recommend only the 5 speed. Why buy a GT then go with the auto transmission. Short shift is very easy, even in traffic. This is an all around great car. I love my pony.

This is the best car that I have driven in a long time. As the ad states: Get up and gone!" When you kick it and look in the rear view mirror the cars behind you are gone. The stereo in the car is like sitting at a concert. The Shaker 1000 is far superior over the Shaker 500. But with a base in the trunk the 500 sounds great! I highly recommend this car to anyone that wants a car that is "it". It's stylish, dependable, beautiful, and hard to drive anything else. Even my convertible Pontiac is not getting driven as much as it should because I have Mustang withdrawals when I am not driving it. I enjoy it so much that we bought a V-8 too. The downfall - cops pull you over so they can see it.

This car amazes me. It's just a v-6 but seems to have plenty of power.The same 6 as the Explorer traded in on it. Such a difference I'm amazed at the looks I get just driving around. Makes it well worth the price. It drives and handles very well for a non-performance version. Although it did snow the second day I had it and I had to remember how to drive with RWD, been a long time since I did that. But after a couple of miles it all came back to me. I guess thats the advantage of being over 50. Overall it's a very solid car, no back seat room to speak of but then again I wasn't looking for any.

This Mustang will run circles around the Pantera. Ford is on the right track with this pony. I say drive it first and you will be sold. Be sure to buy it loaded and the V8.

When I decided to have a mid-life crisis, this car was the ticket. I was a teenager during the 70's, when everyone wanted one of the "cool" Mustang's from the 60's. I have driven many of these over the years, and until now, did not realize what I was missing until I got the 2005 model. I can't believe how wonderful this car performs, and how much attention it gets everywhere I go. My daughter even used the line of "they pimped my ride" the first time she sat in the car. Pretty good feed back from someone who is 13 going on 30. So far no mechanical issues, and 24 mpg combined mileage. The torque is great and the engine just pulls the car without effort at 70 mph.

The seats remind you of a BMW, dash of the classic Mustang, Shaker stereo system is impressive with nice features like random play and has great sound quality. The turn signal sounds like a Cadillac. In fact the ride feels like what I imagine a Cadillac CTS would feel like. But the engine purrs like a kitty and can growl like a tiger when you step on it. The 2005 Stang redefines what a modern day muscle car should be. It is comfortable enough to drive every day and still enjoy it without regret. The only thing missing is a telescoping steering wheel for tall people who will tend to recline more. The steering wheel doesn't tilt down as far as I would have expected. This car is Revolutionary!

Having owned a '66 Mustang and a '73 Mustang, when I first saw the pictures of the '05 in a Northwest Airline magazine a couple of years ago, I was intrigued. When I finally saw one in person in October of '04, I was hooked. I ordered a Legend Lime Metallic 6 cylinder/5 speed for my wife for a surprise 40th birthday present. We had to special order the car, and it didn't make it in time for her birthday, but it was well worth the wait. Surprising torque for a 6, great manual tranny, fairly comfortable interior, even with our 11 and 10 year old daughters in back, great handling for a live rear axle car, and those looks....oh, those looks. Not a car to own if you want to be incognito.

I have had my Red Stang for 3 weeks now and its a fabulous hot car and I've never ever had so much fun driving a car. I am always eager to jump into the drivers seat. The car has got great power, great acceleration and a very sturdy muscular feel to it. I love the sound of the engine. Antilock brakes and Traction Control are highly recommended upgrades for good handling during wet and snowy conditions. Only problem I've had so far is that my Air Bag & Safety Warning Light remains on. The dealer says they have to get the sensor replaced. Baring that glitch, everything else is great about the car. The retro modern design just rocks! Heads just turn towards my car at every stop light or toll.

I sold off my '76 Corvette for the '05 Ford Mustang convertible. It is a true sports car with a back seat and a trunk. Though a little tight, it's more than i had before. Ford finally got the looks right. the Mustang II look is over. This is straight out of the Sixties! The 4.0L/210 h.p. pulls good with the 5 speed transmission. Iif you can afford $6.00 more per fill up go 4.6L/300 hp, you'll get an extra muffler too). Well built and handles well for stock suspension. I'm impressed. Go test drive one for yourself.

This car was well worth the wait. It's a blast to drive, and people love to look at it. I've only had a few problems with it (mentioned below). I do wish it had more hp. I know that sounds insane, but it should have hp equal to that ugly GTO that Pontiac is making. This car is rated less than the '98 Camaro. Seven years later those cars should not be able to keep up with Ford. That said, this is way better than any Mustang ever made, even the 69. Classic car guys will disagree, but this one beats in in quality, performance, sound system, mpg, paint quality, crash tests, and driveablity. Love the car.

My husband and I bought our Mustang in April, and so far we are very happy with every aspect of the car. We find the handling and performance of the car outstanding. My husband compares it to his '68 Mustang and thinks it is even more fun. We have the exterior sports package and I have to say that we could live without the Mustang decal, but that is probably the only thing we would change. Overall, this a great car, we would prefer to get better gas mileage, but if your going to have a car like this I guess gas mileage isn't at the top of your list. Reliving your youth could be though.

This is the first Ford i ever purchased. Going from a 2003 Lexus RX300 SUV to a performance sports car might seem crazy. However I am turning 30 next month and I need some excitement. It is awesome, fast, good looking, and just all around cool. Had to go with the automatic because of my wife, but the performance is not much different. This is by far my favorite of 8, yes 8 new cars I have had in the last 10 years. By the way I was only able to drive the V6 coupe before purchasing my convertible. GT. Thank you Ford for not letting me down.

I bought my '05 Mustang GT this past February and really love it! The performance and the muscle sound of the car takes me back to my '67 HP 289. It does, however, make some very annoying popping noises in the front steering mechanism that even my dealer recognized as a problem. It's taken Ford engineers over 2 months to come up with a fix and mine is still not corrected (now we're waiting on the parts). If the car was not such a fun vehicle, I would be very disappointed. I hate to admit this but this is precisely why I've not bought American built vehicles for a long time.

So far, I've been extremely impressed with our GT convertible. It has a solid feel on the road without any noticeable cowl shake. The car handles VERY well for a convertible. I recommend using the traction control as it works well and will keep the ponies in check. The last thing you want is the rear end coming around on you! The motor is smooth and powerful and the automatic transmission shifts cleanly through the gears. The black leather interior is beautiful and the dash layout is very stylish. Don't expect to be too comfortable in the back seat for long distances due to lack of space. The top goes up and down easily, and the top material appears to be very durable.

New chassis, suspension and looks all done to perfection. Solid body doors/hood/trunk close with a 'thump' and offers an extemely quite ride. Ride amazingly soft for sports car but plenty stiff enough for hard turns and braking. 4 discs are even, steady, smooth with no worry handling when hit hard. Dashboard all within easy reach, well organized. Love position/style (flat/round) turn & wiper levers (unique DOWN for mist & up for wipe). Hardly no 'blind spot' (adjustable side mirrors). seat belts are comfy. "MUSTANG" cloth seats look better than they wear. Lots of front room. Gas mileage nice. Why 20 years for a new frame?

So much fun

I've only had my Mustang (Premimum V6) for two weeks and have totaly enjoyed it. I took a 500 mile trip, secondary roads and interstates, the second day I owned it, got 25 miles per gallon. I am very satisfied with the performace. The seating position is comfortable (I'm 5'10"). The ride is very good at highway speeds. Very little wind noise. Transmission shifts very smoothly. The only real gripe I have is that the engine is little buzzy at low speeds (25 to 35 mph) before car warms up. I am very satisfied with the car.

Having owned a number of Japanese and European models of performance cars, getting a taste of purely American performance machinery has been pure hedonistic joy. The Mustang GT embodies all that is good about American automobile manufacturers. The muscular V8 is a true joy to exercise at any speed. This is mainly true because torque is available from any speed to any speed. It does this effortlessly. The sounds the drivetrain makes is a joy to experience. Its guttural and wailing tones lets the driver (as well as anyone within ear shot) know that this is a serious performance machine. This can also be a civilized car. It's at home in daily commuting as it is firing towards redline.

This is a wonderful car to drive. The Mustang will turn a head or two. There is a small hesitation in the acceleration when you first press the accelerator but when the transmission finds the lower gear, sit back and enjoy the ride.

Things that I would change for the 2006 model: 1.The drivers seat is the most uncomfortable seat I have ever had in a car. Should be wider and more comfortable. I had to put a cushion on the seat. 2. Gas tank is too small; should be at least 20 gallons. You are at the gas station every time you go some place. 3. Stationary antenna should be a retractable one. 4. Passenger seat should have the option of having power so you can raise the seat. It's like sitting in a hole. It's too low. 5. There is no storage space accessible from the drivers seat. After you put a few CD's in the console you don't even have a place to put a map.

The 2K5 GT is awesome! Power is great, but it is easily manageable on the street; handling is superb for a conventional rear axle. It is a very modern vehicle with a well done retro look. I fell for the look when I first saw it, and knew I had to have one when I drove it.

I've had my silver drop top 'Stang for just over a week now and I have to say it's an awesome ride. The retro look combined with the updated features make this car an amazing ride. I chose the red leather interior with the chrome accents and it looks incredible. I get stopped every day by people who are taken with the looks of my 'Stang. I personally love the rims that came with the car. I think they are just flashy enough yet tasteful. All in all I am really happy with this car so far.

We purchased this vehicle and absolutely love it. It is the first new car we've ever owned and what a way to start. The power is unbelievable. It's 300 horse power is awesome. We would highly recommend the vehicle. The soft boot takes some time to get used to. But with a little practice you can master it in no time. It has a very soft clutch which makes driving easy even for the less experienced manual transmission driver.

My 2005 Mustang Convertible lived up to my every expectation. Beautiful car in every regard - if you like if from the outside you will love it from the inside. Sitting behind the wheel with the long hood, throaty exhaust and heavy feel of the car is not unlike driving a Corvette, without that car's acceleration. The 6 cylinder has some power but is best for cruising. A real eye catcher from the outside attracts some stares and comments, the inside is beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. Top is easy to open, nice feature of automatically putting down the windows before opening, closing top. Shaker 500 system sounds great. Just waiting for the summer to get here.

This is an awesome car. If you love Mustangs, you will be a fan. I have owned a 1971 coupe, 96 GT Convertible, and now this one. No other Mustang has been quite as satisfying. It drives smoother, feels roomier, and has a lot of "giddy-up." The lines of this car are phenomenal, with or without the spoiler. The interior is very satisfying, although you won't get a lot of the European/Japanese fancy features that can be very nice. It is a muscle car and it feels like a muscle car.

This car is amazing! It feels looks and performs like a vehicle two classes above what it's in. For $33.5 loaded, you just can't get a better looking and performing car anywhere. To match it you'd need to spend at least $45k. I almost gave in a bought a coupe when they hit the market, but am so glad I waited for the convertible. Hint - to really change it and make its classic lines more evident, order it without the spoiler.

More fun to drive than just about anything for us over 50 crowd. Makes me feel like I am back in high school with a very cool car this time! Quick, agile and it fits like a glove. Lots of comments where ever I go. Looking forward to a few mods in the future. Only complaint is no backlighting for the controls in the Shaker 1000 stereo but it has best sound I have ever heard in a stock car stereo and audio is my profession! Almost bought a Magnum RT but the GT is way more fun to drive. Best bang for your buck available today.

I've had my GT vert for a month and have put 2,000 miles on it. Love the appearance and all the compliments from strangers who just walk up and want to talk about the car. Wished the 2005 had some of the features that were in the prototypes but not included, like 18" wheels and the decorative intake cover. There were minor convenience things that were not included in 2005, like interior trunk release that I was disappointed in. The car is fast, but like many Mustang owners I want it to go faster. Computer thinks too much and the throttle by wire causes a delay when accelerator is floored for passing and merging. Would highly recommend but there are few tweaks that need to be done.

I have never been a Ford guy. I have always liked GM products. But they took away the Camaro and Firebird. I was looking for a sporty car and the new Mustang caught my eye. My wife saw one at a local park and we decided to test drive one. Well, we went home with it that night. I love my new Mustang. Stick is so much fun to drive. In fact, we loved it so much we went back the next day and bought an automatic on for my wife as well. Now we both love our Mustang convertibles. The Shaker 1000 sound system in mine is awesome. The days go by so long at work now because all I want to do is drive.

This is the first sports car I can fit into comfortably. Being 6'7" I can fit into most cars but would not want to ride in them for hours. The Mustang I could drive all day without my back getting sore. The ride is better than I expected and I have had no problems with the car at all. I looked a WRX also but it look so econobox and the STI version was too expensive.

The performance is great and handling is better than any of the above that I have owned. Gas mileage is good (20 mph in town and 22-24 on highway. Have to be careful what brand of gas (87) that I use to get the above mileage. Just about everyone that sees it gives it a thumbs up!

The power, the sound of the throaty exhaust, the braking, the handling, just the total package. It also does fairly well on gas mileage; 19-21mpg isn't too bad for a 300 horsepower engine. Ford really did their homework on this car. The ride isn't bad considering the tire size and suspension set-up. I opted for the 5 speed transmission and I'm glad. It is so much fun shifting.The shifter has real short throws. Talk about head turning! I get stares everywhere.

The new design meets all the expectations that were put out before it's arrival,and the performance of the new 200 hp engine is more than enough for city driving. It's almost embarrassing to drive because it turns heads wherever I go. Truly awesome and a dream come true. Thanks to all the Ford designers who are responsible for this MASTERPIECE!

Ok, first off...If you do not like attention, DO NOT get this car! I can't tell you how many heads turn when I drive this car - doesn't matter if the top is up or down. Every time I stop to get gas, I have someone approach me and ask to look inside and end up talking to them for 5 or 10 minutes. I originally planned to keep this for just a few years but think I'll have it for much, much longer. I get a TON of compliments on the color, too (Windveil Blue). This car is amazing. It's not the GT, but it still goes! Absolutely love it.

I bought my Mustang at the end of March, and I love it. The design is aggressive and stands apart from the rest of the "bubble cars" on the road today. I was surprised at how high the side windows are, giving a "chop top" feel. I cannot get over how much fun this car is to drive. I now look for excuses to drive somewhere or lengthen my trips. My car is sonic blue with white stripes, and it really turns heads. Instant celebrity. I'm glad I got the premium model, as I think I'd be disappointed with a base model. The car I purchased was special ordered with the My Color dash backlighting, which I think is silly, but fun to play with. The engine is more accessible than other new cars too.

Just like many others out there, I've been salivating over the '05 Mustang since Ford first announced the new design. I just got my car (Silver w/ black leather interior) and let me tell you, it's worth every penny. The dealer was telling me that Ford is overwhelmed by demand and buyers are waiting 6 months for delivery of their GT's. I would like to share with you that it is possible to get one. I didn't order my car in advance, but rather convinced the salesman that I was a serious buyer and to call me if a buyer who ordered one changed his mind when the car came in. He (to my amazement) called a week later. I was at the dealer within 90 minutes. They didn't even charge over sticker!

I am unhappy with the all new Mustang. In addition to poor gas mileage, I have had the gas tank replaced three times already. The pump was stopping as if the tank was full, as well as slow fill and spitting back. Dealership said nothing was wrong. They did contact headquarters to find out that there is indeed this type of problem with the vehicle, but not on all of them. They replaced it twice and did not work. Finally they redesigned it. Took 5 months to solve problem. It is a fast car with a great sound system. But, too many "characteristics" that take away from the car. Any problem that I have with the car, they say is a characteristic of the car.

Just turned 1,000 miles on my '05 V6 Mustang. Acceleration and braking are great, as is the 5-speed auto trans. The car is very responsive and controllable, but the rear end can scoot sideways on you a bit when cornering fast on rough pavement. The solid rear axle handles differently then independent suspension, but the car is a blast to drive. The sound of the engine/exhaust is deep and so nice you will keep the radio off. The interior is comfortable and very cool looking. I highly recommend the interior upgrade package. The extra chrome, computer, gauges, My Color, and skid plates are worth twice the upgrade cost. The engineering and build quality of this vehicle is outstanding.

This is a great car!! I always wanted a Mustang when I was kid and it only took 40 plus years to get one. I love the retro styling and the price for new age muscle car. This is my first Ford ever and I can't believe it's as comfortable as it is, for an old guy like me.

What A Ride!

This car is everything I expected it to be. I am not a huge Ford Mustang fan of the past couple decades, but this one I had to own. The white stripes down the center of my car make it even more of an eye catcher then it already is. The power of the engine is awesome. The handling is dead on. I have never, knock on wood, had a speeding ticket. I have a feeling its gonna happen. You can't help it. The car is fast and smooth and before you know it you are going 80 MPH. I love this car.

I recently bought a 2005 Metallic Blue, Mustang GT and it was easily the most fun car I have ever driven. You can feel the force of the acceleration by barely tapping the gas pedal and the stiff suspension allows it to take tight turns with ease. The retro body style is very appealing and I receive many fascinated glances from other motorists. The roar of the engine lets everyone know that this car has some serious power. The Mustang is an absolute joy to drive and it will definitely get you noticed.

I owned a 1999 Mustang GT convertible. It was the most fun car I have ever owned. Until now. The 2005 is ten times better in virtually every aspect I can think of: style, performance, comfort, ride. While I've only got 1100 miles on this car, I absolutely love it! Differences between the 1999 and 2005 are as follows: Power - I am having to learn how to drive slowly, so as not to get ticketed. Build - there was a decent amount of torsion in the 1999 convertibles body. The 2005 is solid. It feels like driving a hardtop. Head-turning ability: off the scale! Handling - like a dream. The rear axle is solidly planted pretty much all the time.

I love my Mustang

This car is far better than the 1989 GT we used to own. I love the retro-style. The V-6 has enough horsepower to get up and go. We chose the V-6 over the GT model purely for the insurance rates. The insurance was double on the GT. I have the windveil blue with the white stripes on the sides.

I have been waiting for this moment ALL MY LIFE. The new design is better than I thought it would be and the power and feel is SO sweet! It is truly the talk of the town. The Mustang will ALWAYS be a classic and I think people will be talking about this model for years to come. The back seats have ample room for adults and are surprisingly comfortable. The sound system is not the best, but can be personally upgraded to suit.

Just traded in a 2000 Mustang convertible for a new V6 convertible with 5-speed automatic. and several accessory packages. WOW, what a difference. This actually drives and handles well; no slop anymore. Looks lean and I like the mineral color. Superior inside room. Mustang is BACK! This is my 6th Mustang convertible and by far the best. Drives as nice as my 2-year Mazda6 V6 with 5-speed stick.

After reading everything I could find online and elsewhere, I figured I'd wait a couple years before getting one. I was raised on Chevy 350 V-8's. I switched to FWD MAZDA 323's and Protege's. In February of this year, I went to get an estimate on my 60,000 mile service and replace my timing belt and hoses to keep my extended warranty intact. Talk about sticker shock, over $1,100 estimate with labor. I used my X-plan discount thru work and returned to RWD with no regrets. I am quite impressed with this V6, roughly 18 mpg city, tight as a drum and makes me feel like a kid again. I don't have the anti-lock brakes/traction control but have had no problems at all in rain or snow.

This is my third GT convertible, not counting my wife's. They've gotten a little better each change up to this one - it's a major upgrade. The build quality, interior, comfort, interior noise, stereo, shifting, clutch, steering, handling, power, function, character and overall fun level are on par with anything for twice (thrice?) the price. The coup de gras was a coworker with an M3 saying he was jealous! And, if he offered a trade, I wouldn't take it! There is no nav option - wouldn't fit the character of the car anyway - but every creature comfort is there. Press on the throttle, or take a turn off faster then you should and you get to what makes this car great to own and drive.

Having been a "hard core" sports car fan, this is the first "American Sports Car" I've owned. It would be an understatement to say how impressed I am. It's got it all; the style, the muscle, the refinement, the "growl" and the attitude. Aside from the startlingly great straight line performance, the suspension strikes a surprisingly good balance between handling and ride comfort. The seats are comfy while holding you in place. The Interior Upgrade Package with real aluminum dash is quite the looker. Shift feel is positive and quick. Brakes haul you down with "right now" stopping power. Build quality is among the best I've experienced in any car. It's tight and solid

Love it!

I was going to buy a 2004 Mustang but my wife told me to wait until this year. I'm I glad I listened to my wife. This car is so much fun to drive. I can't believe the room you have in the car. The V6 is more then enough engine. I have been getting about 18 miles per gallon in the city. I have not taken it on a long trip yet but I'll bet you I'll get well over 20 miles per gallon. I have a Screaming Yellow and truly love it. Ford has a winner in this car.

Where to start? Looks are unbeatable. There's a reason the Mustang is the only true Pony car still in production and this is Exhibit A. No doubt it shows what the domestics can do if they put their mind to it. Inside and out it's light years ahead of the 2000 model I traded in when purchasing. Power, ride, comfort, and lest I forget that GT rumble coming out of the pipes. A truly great automobile that I hope to own for many years. Mine is a black 5 speed I mean why buy this car with an automatic? I've had more people stop to comment on it than I can count. Ford you've hit the nail on the head.

A return to it's roots. I own a black GT. I had double silver stripes added, then found the Bullit style mag wheels. The fit and finish are excellent. Ford went back to the drawing board with this one, and turned out a winner. The car handles like a dream, and there's nothing that can touch it for pure lateral acceleration. 0-60 in 4.9 seconds.I don't use all that power, but it's nice to know it's available. The car is a head turner on the road. Many times, I've had to avoid someone because they're looking at the car and not looking at where they're going.

After a four month wait I got my 'Stang. Have not had one in 20 years and what a car! I drive semi-performance autos and this Mustang GT blows them away. I am used to twice the price tag and I'd give the others away to keep this car. My Dad was with me to take delivery. He ordered the brand new '64 Mustang and waited over 4 months for his back in the day. He also worked as a Ford product specialist (trainer) for some time and has many track days under instruction. I let him drive back :-).

I never thought I'd buy a Ford car (I love the trucks), but when I took a test drive in the '05 Mustang, I drove off the lot and said "this is my car". Two days later I picked up the same car and drove it home. And it's been a thrill driving to work in the morning (a cool car helps the morning blues!) Great exterior from front to back and a kicking stereo system. Interior is tame and reminiscent of the late '60s models. Love it! Ford outdid themselves on this one-of-a-kind comeback!

The new 2005 Mustang GT is my wildest dream come true. The ultimate fusion of classic styling and modern technology. This car is amazing in every way! My Torch Red Premium GT Couple with 5 speed manual transmission is more fun than any of the five prior Mustangs including the 1967 I drove in high school. I highly recommend this car to anyone that wants a brutally wicked hot rod for a very reasonable price. This car is just too awesome to put into words.

Ford has outdone themselves with this new retro body style. I have to remember it's the car they're all staring at, because it's a real head turner. I acquired the "Mineral Gray" in a premium 6 cyl. coupe, with many of the options offered, for now. GT was just gonna cost too much. The 6 cylinder really has some get up and go, and still gets great mileage. I have been averaging about 24-26 mpg. In a few years I expect that Ford will have fine tuned this car to make it the sweetest thing on the road. I love it, and you will too.

Wow. This car pulled me out of my Mopar's for the first time in my life (age 41). I have not liked Ford car designs for years now. Nothing excited me like this car (in this price range). I have the manual and the shifting is very smooth. For 300 hp I think the acceleration is poor but the sound is awesome. The sound is why I got the V8 over the V6. The handling is very "secure". The driving outputs match the inputs very well. The retro dash with MyColor is a great mix of new and old. I feel the 500 radio is more than enough for someone my age. Great convertible top seal so far. Low wind noise. Mentioned before on this site, this car sure does get looks! Screaming Yellow.

Great car. Use to own a '69 fastback and hated the designs of the Mustang ever since - until now. This year's model is the best since then. It has classic styling, awesome performance and the best thing about it is that it is completely re-tooled. Which means it is not related to any of the 71-04 models. It gets looks wherever I drive it from all age groups. It has brought back my enthusiasm for the Mustang again. I would recommend this car to anyone.

This is my first Mustang and I have absolutely no regrets. From the first day to now, driving this car puts this huge grin on my face. I have driven Cobras with much more horsepower, but this car is much more of a blast to drive. I am amazed still by how well it handles but the muscle car rumble and power is definitely there. Five months later, this car still turns heads! The build quality is obvious inside and out. Although I baby this car; garage and not my everyday driver; it's still cool that I have had absolutely no problems with her. This car loves to be driven fast, and the gas mileage is a surprise.

Not a day goes by that someone doesn't give me the thumbs up or a smile. Was at a mall the other day and someone bowed twice to the car - really. It is an all American icon that would make Steve McQueen proud. And a real deal. Could buy four GT's for the price of a Porsche, Vette, etc. This baby boomer just loves it more and more every day.

The new 05' Mustang is a blast to drive with a very responsive and snappy bottom end pull. Zero to 70 is under 5 sec. and continues to pull hard well past. With minor bolt on aftermarket parts, the '05 stang would be just as much and more so a street terror as was the fox body style stangs were of the late 80's and early 90's were. The interior and exterior looks of the car turn heads everywhere it goes. Look out Vette, with some more tuning and power squeezed out, you'll be having some heavy breathing on your neck. Ford is on the right track with the new Mustang, and only better can come from this model forward. With a fair price and nice power for a showroom stock car, the '05 Mustang is GREAT!

I used to own a '69 Mustang Fastback back in 1980. Of course I probably spent more time under the hood than driving it but I honestly thought that the styling of that particular year and model Mustang was bar far the best ever. This year's design is reminiscent of the '69 design and delivers beautiful lines with the styling that evokes the same feelings I had about my '69. It is fast, comfortable and as an added plus handles like a true 2005 sports car. I have a fully loaded '05 Yellow GT convertible and I love it. It draws attention wherever I go. I truly believe that Ford has created another classic with this new Mustang.

The only issue I have had has been the check engine light came on twice at once at about 600 and 1,000 miles. The dealership kept the car for about a week each time to diagnose the issue. I am not entirely sure how they fixed the issue but I have not had it reoccur in the past 2,000 miles.

The first time I saw the new 2005 I had to have one. I has the right mixture of old with new features that make this car a keeper, just like the 1966 fastback.

I was looking for a car with moderate/good performance with an automatic transmission, rear wheel drive and a reasonable price. This is about the only car that I found that met these requirements. Performance is great for a V6, and the handling is great. Automatic transmission is excellent - you almost forget that the transmission is there. Styling, both interior and exterior, is a perfect combination of old and new.

I get more looks and thumbs up than my '79 Harley! Truly love the style and throaty sound coming from the dual tips. '60's touches with modern performance and handling. I'm reliving my youth vicariously thru my car.

An e-ticket ride. The GT 300 hp engine is a rocket ship on wheels. I've had 4 Mustangs, my favorite until now was a red 3511972 Mach 1. This car is superior in every way in acceleration and handling, although Mustangs always do best when traveling in a straight line. Forget the back seats, this is a two person car. Nice leather finished seats are comfortable.

Nice, but....

I took delivery of this ordered Mustang in February 2005. I did test drive it and love the ride, but I must say now that I have had it awhile and have put 3,000 miles on it Ford could do better. The interior plastics feel cheap and I have had a few problems already. First the window on this car edges up a 1/4 inch or so when you shut the door; mine stopped working and leaked. The speaker cover fell off on my driver's door. Why did Ford not put vanity lights in the mirrors? The gas milage even driving easy stinks. I'm averaging 14 mpg.

Great!

I used to own a 1968 Mustang coupe so this is a big step up. I was never really a fan of the modern day Mustang but this one captures the styling of the old with the reliability of the new. First off the car looks awesome, a real throw back to the muscle cars of the '60's. It also drives great. The engine sound sgood from inside the car but not overpowering, the handling is good; a little stiff but overall good. The ride is smooth and comfortable. I love this car and recommend it to any muscle car lover.

I believe that this Mustang is by far the best looking, driving, overall handling and the fastest automobile that I have ever had. Ford held back nothing in the styling and manafacturing of the Mustang GT. The Shaker 1000 watt sound system that I have is superior to any system I have ever had. The detailing both inside and outside reaches far beyond my expectations. Bravo! to those who made the 2005 Mustang GT possible. My wife and I LOVE the ride and the looks we get when we go cruising. In only one word to describe it - FABULOUS!

My 5th Mustang since '85, two of which were GT's and two were Cobras; now this one. Mine is the automatic, tan interior with Legend Lime body color. I remember April of 1964 and the unveiling of the new "pony car". $2,400 and it was yours. 41 years and an additional $28K brings me the freshened '05 iteration. Time and prices have changed but this new version of a well loved nameplate gives us "boomers" an opportunity to recapture a bit of our "free love and go fast" attitudes long lost in the fury of modern living. The Ford finally did it right; went back to basics and restored the visuals and added some topnotch engineering. The car is fun to drive and look at!

I love this car. It makes you feel like a "movie star." From the police to little kids and "big kids" turn their heads. It truly is a fun car that can zip around town and make you feel like you don't want to get out. We have driven 700 miles in it in 2 weeks! We now want a convertible and the coupe. Go for it and take the highway. And watch others dream about your car. :)

I have had my '05 GT for 12 days now and it is flat-out the best new Ford in nearly forever. Over the weekend I took it down to Arizona (from Nevada) and, with cruise set at 80 mph, I averaged nearly 27 mpg. Overall I am getting about 16 in town and 25 on the highway -- just about what the window sticker says (that's a first!). Unlike previous Mustangs, this one actually handles well. Its been raining virtually non-stop here since I picked up the car and I have yet to really break loose with the traction control on. The interior is a perfect throwback to the '60's heritage and the sound system is amazing. BTW, I paid slightly below MSRP for mine.

I bought this beautiful piece of machinery the last day of the year (2004). I couldn't believe the power it had. Compared to my 2002 GT Mustang it was just amazing. After test driving it I was sold, not to mention the way it looked and felt on the inside. The sound of the exhaust was very impressive and the handling was remarkable; the dash and instrument panel looks like the old Mustangs - very good looking. This car is a blast to drive, the stares you get, the envious looks on people's faces, I'm always getting the thumbs up all the time; word of warning, don't buy this car if you don't like being stared at. But overall the "2005 Mustang" surely is the car to buy.

I have been a Mustang enthusiast for over 25 years. With the exception of the 1965/66 models I believe the 2005 is the best model produced to date. The car is extremely responsive and the styling is the best combination of many of Mustang's best older models. The only negatives I can come up with (and I have tried) is the steering wheel could be about 1 inch larger in diameter as it tends to obscure the speedometer, and I would call this model a "fastback" instead of a coupe. My wife's only complaint is that she has to sit very close to the steering wheel to depress the clutch. Other than those minor issues, this car is a 10 and Ford has "knocked it out of the park"!

After less than a thousand miles Ford had to replace my entire engine because a loud noise was coming from it and they didn't know what was causing it. The new engine is making a new awkward noise. The wheel brackets had to be changed at 1200 miles because everytime I would turn the wheel, clanking noises would be heard. The interior has many rattling noises that can drive a person crazy, and going over cracks on the road is no vacation. There is a loud whistle coming from the engine at exactly 1500 rpm. Ford service is too slow and doesnt show much appreciation for it's customers. Every time a problem is fixed a new one shows up. Spend your money on something of better quality.

My first car was a 1972 Mustang Mach 1 and I have been searching for a comparable vehicle ever since. Ford has done what I thought couldn't be done...the new 2005 Mustang GT delivers. It delivers power, styling and handling making this an extremely fun car to drive. The interior room has been vastly improved with the move to the Lincoln LS platform. Lots more headroom, though the back seat is really still only there for insurance purposes. As for handling - flat in curves and feels tight. The power is incredible. A real dream machine; best buy I ever made.

Had to go through hell to find one being sold for msrp. But like I said, worth every penny and all the effort. Word to the wise though, if you’re planning on getting one of these babies, get the premium package; it's a world of difference.

I liked the car - so I bought one. It's relatively fun to drive, but I can tell that I'll be getting rid of it in a year or two. It requires "work" to drive it and that's not always what I want out of a car. I looks awesome and sounds great but steering is tough and the response is tight.

I bought my 2005 Mustang in Dec 2004 and it has been driven very little to this date. I have approximately 800 miles on this vehicle and it been to the service department four times already (with another trip to be scheduled). I must say that as excited as I was about purchasing this car, I am now starting to have serious reservations about my decision. I have had problems with the heating & cooling system, the car wouldn't go in reverse, the stereo had to be replaced (Shaker 500), vibration in front end, and several other minor issues. I believe for the price you have to pay (usually over sticker price), Ford should have placed more emphasis on quality rather than looks alone.

I was born in 1963 - the same year the first Mustang was introduced. My first car was a 1967 Galaxie 500 - I really wanted a Mustang. Since I was 16 I've watched Mach 1 ads, loved the Cobras, and drooled every time I saw a Shelby. When I saw the '05 for the first time, the chills of history ran through me. I couldn't believe the perfection in the design. Then I heard the GT had 300 HP! I decided then, this would be the year. I got it two days ago. Nothing in my life has so dramatically exceeded my expectations. I am in awe of the people who had the artistic ability to pull the heritage of the Mustang with perfect craft and precision into this one car, truly in awe. Nicely done!

Car handles well and corners great. The smooth shifting of the transmission makes for quick response. Had trouble finding O/D off-on switch at first. Radio (Shaker 500) puts out great sound especially with the CD player. Spinners on wheels were a nice touch. Really was surprised to find traction type bars underneath as well as the aluminum hog head cover. Sounds like a V8 even though only single exhaust. Retro features and clean lines both outside and interior make for a great looking car. Inside storage not very good, door storage could be made somewhat larger; other than that though, a great car. Well worth the money. Have had nothing but compliments from all who have looked at it. Thanks.

The 05 Mustang is everything promised. Handles great, acceleration is terrific, very comfortable interior. Two good size guys fit in the front seats with space between us ! Rear seat is tight, great for kids. Sound system is very good (Shaker 500 ). CD player a little shaky. Warnings about Mustang being sloppy on wet roads and snow were exaggerated. Traction control a big help. This car turns a lot of heads as it passes. Combination of looks (mine is black w/ upgraded red interior & dash) and sound as you hit the gas. First car in 20 years that I'll keep.

After a woefully disappointing experience owning a 2000 Focus, I purchased a 2002 Celica. It was everything a Toyota should be. It was reliable, great handling, uncomfortable and loud (road noise). I had no problems with it other than my aching back. On a whim, I test drove the Mustang, expecting it to be a piece of crap. I was caught off guard. It drove better than any car I had ever driven. The v6 was extremely powerful, and the 5 speed automatic converted me from stick and I've always hated automatics. After having the car for just a week, I can't comment on reliability with authority, however, by the 1 week point I already had beefs with the Focus. I hear no noises and the car feels solid.

This car has everything you want from an American made Muscle Car and nothing you don't! It has all of the power you need and the styling and comfort you desire. Ford has definitely turned the tables with the 2005 model. I feel sorry for those people who settled on a good deal on the 2004 models Ford was quickly trying to phase out at the dealerships without test driving the 2005 first. The sound system cannot be beat with 1,000 watts of power coming from 10 speakers. The Mycolor gauges are a very nice added touch. The fit and finish of this vehicle is near the top for Ford standards.

I've been waiting 20 years to purchase a GT Mustang. Good things come to those who wait. Downside, 4 out of 5 Ford dealers in Las Vegas are adding $3000 to MSRP and won't budge. Dealer 5 didn't play this loser game and I bought it! I drove the GTO 6.0 , but stuck with the GT Mustang, it just felt better and was more just what the doctor ordered. If you don't have one, you owe it to yourself to take a test drive.

Awesome, excellent, more than I expected; a true fountain of youth! Gets the heart rate up and keeps it up - a great warm up before working out or for anything else for that matter! Bought a GT - Windveil Blue Metallic loaded. It gets a lot of looks and inquiries at traffic lights from those less fortunate to not have one! The 300 horses purr and roar at your whim. Excellent performance and handling on California's canyon & mountain roads and freeways. I actually get to meetings early now 'cause I want to be out there driving it. You don't have to be pushing it to have a good time driving but knowing that you can let loose anytime is a good thing.

My husband and I between us have owned at least 6 Mustangs prior to this one. This car out handles all of them. My husband has been even driving it to work in the snow with little difficulties. This is something that in the past required loading up the hatch area and praying for no stopping on hills. I never even test drove one and when we picked up the car it had the easiest clutch. It is a total joy to drive. We actually somewhat fight over whose turn it is to drive. Any friend we have let drive it says they now need to talk themselves out of buying one.

Very good car priced right. Looks a lot better in person then seeing it on paper. 300 hp gets it. 5 speed tremendous. Better tires than older Mustangs. Better seating and more room inside then my 2002 GT.

This is a sweet ride. Great performance and man does it turn heads. I have driven SUVs for years now and was a little apprehensive about a car. Especially a small car. But when I saw the 2005 for the first time i was hooked. I did all my homework on it. Read or heard nothing bad about the car. Then I went looking. Found one I liked and told friends if I drove it, I would end up buying it. Well, I went for a test drive. And that same day I took it home. A Torch Red one. And I couldn't be happier. Thanks Ford!

I took delivery of thei car in November. It's been nothing but fun. I've been on 4,400+ mile drives in it and it's as comfortable as my Impala. Build quality is great, and it's a lot of fun to drive. The hum of the exhaust is something that has to be experienced.

Thanks to Fod and their brilliant designers and engineer! I ordered this mustang GT a while back and am glad I did. They are rare at dealerships. Happy, happy happy!

Its body is beautiful, its interior is comfortable, its handling can't be matched, and what is under the hood makes it a certified beast.

The best 'Stang yet

I've been driving Mustangs for 31 years and the '05 is the best of them all. It's hard to go the speed limit because this pony can do so much so easily. Acceleration is fast with just a touch of the pedal. I prefer a manual and the new position of the stick makes for quick shifts. This 'stang also feels the most solid on the road and the ride lets you feel the road without getting bruised. The comfort of the seats is a great improvement and I feel like I'm in a recliner. I could drive this car all day. And it's nice to finally hear the rumble of the exhaust on the inside, sounding fast even at 30 mph. Chrome wheels with spinners hubs fit this body style, reminiscent of the '60s.

I haven't liked one Mustang style since the '69 (which was my high school car). Saw the 05 GT Premium, drove it, bought it. Great car for the money. Plenty of power, rides nice, excellent cornering, great sound system inside and out. I average. about 19mpg (a lot in town) which I think is incredible for 300 hp! Mine is torch red, red leather, IUP's, automatic and FAST! Some of the reviews show disapointment - get real. This is a 300 hp car that looks awesome and is worth every penny! Buy one, you won't be disappointed!

It's my new daily driver! Sorry '95 5.0

I waited months to get my hands on this Pony! It was worth the wait! It truly is the best GT Mustang ever to come out of the assembly line. The handling is excellent for a sports car.. it by far exceeds my 2 previous Mustangs ('89 & '95). The power (300hp) is evident but sad to say, it still falls short of the last Camaros built. Also don't like all the computer stuff (safety add ons) that prevents it from doing cool stuff like burn outs. Hard to make this car spin tires. Luckily the aftermarket guys already have a remedy for this slight draw back. Nonetheless, it's the best GT ever!

I love the retro look - the old school. I get lots of compliments along with people leaving a lot of fingerprints all over my car but that's ok. I'm loving it. I ordered mine in black with red seats leather. I am trying to find louvers for it to make it complete . i put chrome bullit rims on mine looks great AAA+

Ford did great with this one. The ride is smooth and the power is awesome. The looks of the car speak for itself. Going back to the old body style really has gone well for Ford. This one gets a lot of looks and comments. So far we have really enjoyed our purchase.

I bought my first Mustang in 1970 when I returned from overseas duty with the U.S.Navy . It was a 1968 model. I have owned Mustangs ever since. I must admit that this is the finest Mustang that has ever been produced . The acceleration is outstanding and the handling is superb . The styling is what sold me on this car. It brought back fond memories to me and my wife of 34 years.

After searching through two states just picked up my black on black GT. If all I could take from this buy was the feeling of the first 15 minutes of driving this machine it would be worth it. Even paying MSRP the GT is a bargain. You can talk about the power and handling but it really comes down to how this car makes you feel when you are in it. Great job Ford.

i work at a Ford dealership as a mechanic so i pretty much know what to buy and what not to buy. The Mustang is one of Ford's best cars. I know a 1969 and a 1970 Mustang were also well built. The cars are realiy close in looks thats why i bought - it brings you back to the 60's

Having waited since 1969 I was thrilled at the prospect of finally getting a Pony of the past but with the goodies of today. Mine was born 11/4 and she arrived the day before Thanksgiving. In many ways better than expected and in some ways somewhat disappointed. All in all I am very happy. She loves to run and sounds great out of the gate.

Love It! :)

Oh my gosh! I can't put into words how this Mustang has lived up to my expectations - I've been a Mustang lover for many years and finally now own a new one (owned a '65 in the mid 80's). Oh my gosh! It's amazing - solid, GORGEOUS, FAST! Everything the legend is known for plus the creature comforts of our modern age. Kudos to Ford - I think they designed this car just for me! :) Oh my gosh! AMAZING! I just brought it home today and keep going out into the garage about every 5- 10 minutes...it's that good!

I've been buying Mustang GT's since 1984. This is by far the best one yet. Its the kind of car that just doesn't get you from point A to point B without a lot of fun. Since I'm creeping up on 40 I figured this would be my mid-life crisis vehicle.

I purchased a 2005 mustang on Dec 27,2004. The car has broken down 4 times and the dealership has had it 17 days trying to fix it. Do Not buy one. The kinks are not worked out. The 3rd time it broke down on me I was doing 70 miles down I-95 and the whole car cut out and just stopped running. Do Not buy until 2006. The throttle is the problem and they seem not to be able to fix it. This will be my last American made car.

I recently bought a 2005 Mustang and although I'm not a Ford man, I must say that this is the best car I have ever owned. My Mustang is the Premium version equipped with the V-6. This engine has 210 horses and she runs like a champ. It makes me laugh when people say it only has a V-6? She has more power then most people can use and she is fast off the line with plenty of get up and go. The exterior looks like something from the past and that is a good thing. Other drivers will slow down to get a good look and I have been given the thumbs up by many a pedestrian. The interior is more spacious then previous years and she looks just as good on the inside as she does on the outside. Buy one!

I recently owned a 2002 Mustang V6, before purchasing the new 2005 and I must say, Ford has outdone themselves! The new style looking back to the 60's is just an eye-catcher and a jaw-dropper. The handling and driving experience is unlike any other Mustang that I have been behind the wheel of. With 300 pony's behind the 4.6L engine, it delivers a unbelievable power and torque to the concrete. The shifting of the 5 speed manual transmission is unlike anything I have felt before. I enjoy driving this car and I will always enjoy driving this car. This car is worth every dollar!

I love my Mustang, that's a given, but beware. Hopefully this was a fluke, but with exactly 250 miles on my odometer, my engine blew on the 5 freeway in LA. A spring broke in valve # 5, causing the valve to bend. My engine was replaced with a brand new one. I still love the car, but want to give people a heads up that there might be a problem with the engines in the GT. The car is an absolute blast to drive when it's not at the dealership getting worked on! : )

Purchased my 05 Mustang after selling my Taurus, The ride was very good compared to the old (fox platform) Steering is very resposive, traction control works great. Great smooth power, I have a automatic, it shifts very smooth, you cant even feel it. Wish it had heated seats or the option, Seat belts are alittle tuff to grab. Doesn't have some amenities but I knew that buying it. I think the stereo is excellent.As for reliability, I am hoping I will not have any problems. But it has a warranty. For the money I think Ford did a great job. I am very happy!

I bought this car the first day middletown ford in ohio had one, and to date i am one of 3 in middletown to have a GT.(01-05-05) My car is #912, which is not bad since the first one available to the general public was #825. Ford employees and executives got those!! I LOVE MY 2005 MUSTANG!!!!!!!!!! Ford did a great job on this car. I cant go anywhere without people looking and pointing. If you like attention, its awesome for that too. It is one hell of a car for $28000.00. If i had a 5 car garage i'd buy 4 more!!!! My car is grey with black leather, perfect for racing stripes. I'm adding a shaker hood, Roush side pipes, and flowmasters right now. When the snow melts, maybe i can drive it..

Awesome!

I've got my Mustang less than two weeks ago, but I'm having such a blast driving it. The acceleration is superb and drives comfortable in the big city since it isn't so big. I live in L.A. and drove around Santa Monica and Beverly Hills where you see pricey Ferraris, BMWs and Mercedes galore, but this 30k car caught all the attention. I also love the Shaker 1000.

I absolutly love this car now that i have is. At first i was skeptical of the look of the cat and how big of a difference it is to look at rather than a Fox Baced Stang, But one night i had a dream and it opened my eyes. I went online and did some reserch and fell in love with this car. I went out the next day and bought me a brand new GT Premium, and havent looked back since. I cant get enough of this car. Sometimes i just sit in my driveway and look at it. The interior has to be my favorite pary of this magnificent car, its edgie retro look is realy pleasing to the eye, and the low siting seats conform nicly and give a sence of real speed even at 50mph.

Mine has the red leather with every option except the automatic. the ride is soft yet firm enough to do some mild performance driving. I never had so much attention in a car. I get stopped all the time and people want to touch and talk about it. It's a big hit for FORD so buy FORD stock and you will do well.
