- BEST MUSTANG GT EVER MADE
- I HAVE YET TO FIND ONE
Purchased As New
I bought a 2013 Premuim GT Convertible, deep impact blue. This is a great looking car, with a monster lurking under the hood. It is an absolute joy to drive, and is very powerful. Yes, people complain about the live axle, but to me, that is the charm of a powerful Mustang!
The car I bought came with all options minus the backup camera and recaro seats. The onboard electronics are great, the navigation screen large, clear and commands (manual and verbal) are easy and intuitive. I also think the 10GB hard drive built into the stereo is a great idea, as I have loaded my favorite driving CD's onto the hard drive, and do not need to find a place to put those jewel cases.
The engine is quite powerful (420HP stock). I added a performance tune and cold air intake. The improvement over power and throttle response is impressive.
I also like the new LED lights and front fascia. The 2013 GT just looks mean and fast.
I own a 1966 289 Mustang convertible, and while it is fun, it comes no where near the 2013.
I could go on and on all day here, but suffice to say that this is the first new car I have ever purchased and had zero buyers remorse. It is a fantastic car inside, outside and all around....read morehide

After anxiously waiting over two months for it to be built, I finally got my 2013 silver with black GT premium convertible back in late May.
Since that time I have driven over 7000 miles, unfortunately most of it with the top up.
After reading a detailed article describing the development of the Coyote engine, exclusively for the Mustang, and remembering how well my former1999 GT convertibles 16 valve single overhead cam 4.6 engine ran and sounded I could hardly wait to get my hands on this latest wonder.
These are the following observations of my latest ride.
The 5.0 engine is more than worth the price of admission, not only is it silky smooth and extremely powerful with a great soundtrack, but is capable of remarkable fuel mileage when driven sensibly. Over the course of a 150 mile stretch that I drive regularly which includes some interstate travel I have consistently seen up to and including 30 mpg on many occasions even with the air conditioning running full blast, this has been confirmed by simply doing the math on each fill-up, all of this on mid grade gasoline, not premium. Of course mileage can be affected by stiff head winds and/or heavy rain conditions, but it is truly amazing how accurate the cars computer can be as it is accurate by roughly one or two tenths of a gallon.
The 6-speed manual is surprisingly slick, the clutch is smooth and forgiving, the sync system works flawlessly and the GPS option is the best I have seen.
This new platform is more rigid than previous models and the seats much more comfortable. The interior is greatly improved and definitely upscale.
In my travels I have had numerous compliments not only about the overall design, but the pony projections and especially the sequential led tail lights.
Although this latest model has more pricey options than were available to me in the past, thus the overall cost was considerably more than my former 1999 model , this latest model is certainly worth the extra money....read morehide
