- Steering and Handling, Comfort and Looks Gas Mileage
- Rear Wheel Drive in the Snow! and Every Kid Wants to Race You!!
Purchased As New
We bought ours new and baby this car is quick fast and fast! We got the V6, and I can not think of anything that it has not done that I needed a V8 for! It has performed every request and move I have asked of it to do.
The Feel of this car is so smooth on the road, you can not feel the road vibrations through the steering wheel like you can in some cars. This lets me know that Ford has spent some engineering time on the Mustang to help improve the passengers and drivers, quality of life!
The comfort of the seats is just great too, We enjoy long road trips without having to get out every 100 miles to stretch out. In fact I only stop to get gas, which is about every 350-400 miles!! I get great gas mileage in this Pony, this baby is a fun and economical ride! a people magnate that every kid with a set of wheels wants to race.
Will they ever learn, that an American Muscle car beats those foreign jobs every time ?
A great car for the price, plenty of room and power. with great gas mileage, what do you want?...read morehide

- Engine performance, Fuel Economy, Sound Quality, Interior Appearance
Purchased As New
This car is absolutely amazing. It is astronomically powerful and fun to drive. The exterior styling is gorgeous and retro. The interior styling is equally beautiful with it's retro guages and dash, and multi-color options for floor and dash illumination. The Shaker sound system is one of the loudest and clearest factory sound systems I have ever heard. The fuel economy was quite surprising, with 26 MPG highway. Excellent for a V8. It has a very comfortable ride, with only moderate road and engine noise. Overall, this is a very high-quality vehicle, and a great value for a sports car....read morehide

- looks, acceleration, V8 sound, comfortable seats, great tires.
- Handling not that good but tolerable, a bit heavy, plasticky interior.
Take it from my experience. Been driving my 05 GT since it got out of the market. No repairs yet. Loved it. Great power, handling was a bit tough on corners & winding roads (compared to my WRX). Hated the location of cupholders esp. when driving manual. But all in all its great.
Needs to add (IMO):
Radio controls on steering wheel,
Could be better standard 18" wheels,...read morehide

- Dash, Handling, Sound System w/ Ax Inputs
- Tiny Glove Box, Cant open trunk w/o keychain
I bought my custom GT back in November. I have over 6k on it now and I don't have any problems with it. A couple minor hassles are the tiny glove box and there isn't a trunk opener in the actual vehicle. Considering how much space is ABOVE the glove box, they could have made it a bit wider. Blah blah blah about the airbag, airbags do not need that much room to explode if needed.
I ordered mine and waited a couple of months due to the fact I wanted an Alloy Metallic w/o leather. I'm 23 living in SoCal, having hot leather seats when I get in my car doesn't sound good to me. Plus, I just dont like leather so paying an add'l 800 or so was not an option. DEFINITELY get the interior upgrade and the GT looks package. Those two are just 700 or so...at least it was for me. I got the Shaker 500 solely due to the AUX input. I'm an Ipod fiend and the hookup into the center console is PERFECT. I mean, you could get an aftermarket system and it will probably sound better but the Shaker 500 is pretty nice and I dont have to really worry about much since I purchased the extended warranty.
Those that are worried about the back seat...don't buy this car. The back seat isn't really that bad. My friend has the same model so I've sat in the backseat for a while. The tough part is getting out of the vehicle. I'm almost 6 feet tall so my feet always get stuck. Nonetheless, if you are worried about the back seat room you need to go get a 4 door car and stop being such a wussy.
One of the main reasons why I purchased this vehicle is because it is a 2 door vehicle. Go get a Charger or 300 if you want extra room....read morehide

- Engine sound, perfromance, value, comofort, practicality, and yes - fuel mileage
- Slightly slow reving engine up to about 3,000 rpm, (solid rear axle if you want to get picky)
My Mustang is a 2007 GT I bought new. I now have 24,000+ miles on it and I'm extremely happy with it in every aspect. The performance is great, but you can read about that in the car mags. I'm telling you the other stuff they won't. The build quality is easily equal to any Japanese import. Very sound. I must admit, I was surprised to find that in a Ford, but I did. And acording to the trip computer, when I fill up and get right on the freeway...I can acheive an average mile per gallon rating of 30 MPG after about an hour of cruising at about 65 mph. Not bad! (That's with the standard 3.31 rear axle.)
I get a huge grin on my face every time I start this car. The engine nearly explodes with a sweet sounding growl that just makes you want to go out and drive! If you like the sound of a powerful engine with lots of horsepower (and even more torque), you'll love the GT. Did you know the 4.6L motor in the GT has won awards for its overall design and performance? Go to the Ford webite and you'll find out about it.
Overall, this is a great car. I've had great experience with it and am very pleased. It's not the most sophisticated car out there, but if you're looking for performance, value, comfort and usefullness (large trunk with fold down rear seats and seating for 4 people), you can't go wrong buying a Mustang GT. If you're thinking about buying one, just do it. You won't regret it!
I don't work for Ford, but I can tell you they hit the ball out of the park with this car....read morehide

- Blast to drive; 0-60 mph in just 5.1 secs
- Ride is a bit stiff but expected for a sports car. Mileage is only about 17-23mpg.
I own a Black V8 2007 Ford Mustang GT deluxe model which I bought brand new last year. And I tell you, it is a rocket! They say it goes from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, but my GT (with manual transmission) can go 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds!! Not sure what they put under the hood, but you feel truckloads of power once you hit 4000 rpm. And mine is in pure stock form: No power adders, no after market intakes and mufflers. Pure stock.
I love to take my Mustang to work everyday. The ride is pretty decent for a sports car. It feels a bit heavy on cornering, but very behaved on highways. V8 engine sound is very alluring and I always get the thumbs up sign!! Maybe you were thinking about Nissan 350Z, Infiniti G35, Lexus IS 350, or even the Lotus Exige S, you name it: The mustang will smoke them all in an open highway based on my experience.
It's been one year and I am still happy and smiling every time I enter the car and drive it to work. It's airconditioning is still cold and pleasant as the day I got it from the dealership. The plastics inside are expected, as you can't buy luxury features at only $26.5K. With 300 HP and 320 Tq, you'd find that to be a bargain.
Overall, Ford did its homework well. When you're thinking of buying a car that you can pass on to your children, or just to have fun for daily driving and commuting, and of course to feel the remnant's of genuine 60's retro styling in a tight and fast package, THEN THE MUSTANG GT IS FOR YOU!!! Do it right. Get the GT....read morehide

- Mean sounding exhaust and great flashback looks
- Live Axle Ratio (ancient supension system) & Heavy Car for Muscle Car
You can buy a 2003-2004 C-5 Corvette for mush less than one of these new. Better supension, better MPG 22 City and 28 Highway Average, Weights 600 pounds less and you get an additional 50 HP above and beyond the Mustang GT's Horsepower. There is a BIG improved difference between a sports car and a muscle car. You also get heads up display, be able to take the targa top of on nice days, and who needs half seats in the back anyway that only a 4 year old could fit in. Drive both and then tell me which one you would pick....read morehide

- Timeless Classic Styling; Performance Potential
- Live Rear-End axle
First, 'haters' read no further. Jealousy is an ugly thing.
I own a 2006 Mustang GT that's heavily modified. I only paid approx $26,000 for mine including my $1k credit card rebate. I always wanted a classic style Mustang, but could never afford one of the sixties vintage models. My prayers were answered when the S197 models came out in '05. I've always planned on building my next car to have super car performance, and that's the first thing I did when I bought my Mustang. The first major mod was a Kenne Bell Intercooled Supercharger. My car easily dyno'd at 550hp with the blower.. I also upgraded the clutch, brakes, wheels/tires, and a few other key components to handle the additional ponies. My last few mods have been a Raptor LED shift light and line-lock. Stock performance was fine, but I wanted something special. Don't let the nay sayers convince you that Mustangs can't handle. With the addition of an aftermarket Roush performance suspension kit for only $1K, you too can have a well behaved Mustang that can run with the best of them. I've had my Mustang at track day events and with my limited mods, I was able to run with Ferrari's, Porsches, DB9's, and other cars costing 5X more than mine. Imagine what a little more boost could do.
Anyway, that's what the Mustang is all about. They respond very well to minor modifications, and are one of the hottest looking cars on the road today - not generic looking like some sports cars. Mustangs always have and always will have a soul.
One Rule-Of-Thumb, if you plan on driving your Mustang above 90mph, you will need to install functional hood-pins 'cause air pressure has a tendency to build up under hood and cause the aluminum hood to flutter and possibly unlatch.
You will not regret buying a late model Mustang!...read morehide

- Best Value on the Road
- Shaker radio is weak I replaced it.
I just bought a 2008 Mustang Bullitt--(Number 4505) I had a 2006 Black gt which I loved, the difference is all in the undercarriage, the power increase is marginal but the car holds the road beautifully, with only 200 Miles under my belt I have to say the suspension changes tires, and wheels make a world of difference. Where the GT was fast it drove on the stodgy side, the Bullitt is almost nimble and has the same acceleration. Love the car glad I did it even with the premium over the GT--Radio is very weak, I upgraded to an alpine unit that hooks to my ipod and blue tooth phone, better speakers as well, kept the subs but replaced the other....great car, phenomonal value. I was getting 19 to 21 around town with the GT and will be interested to see what I get with the Bullitt once the engine is broken in. The GT got up to 28 mph on the expressway. so need to take a road trip to check out the bullitt, so far I around 19 mph around town on regular gas....read morehide
