    2007 Ford Mustang - V6 Premium (120A) Coupe

    Pros: Exterior

    Cons: They might as well use cement blocks for seats

    Advice: Schedule your back surgery now...youll need it after any time in this car

    This WAS my dream car. Ive had my mustang for about three weeks and have been trying to find a way out of it for 2 and a half. Other than the great looks this car has nothing to offer. It is horribly uncomfortable as a driver, the seats are like cement, with very little lumbar support and if you want to be comfy you have to give up seeing over the front of the hood. There is ZERO space for anything, including passengers, in the back seat. This vehicle doesnt do well on gas, the engine isnt anything like we expected, as well it is very noisy. Dont by this car unless you only plan on driving in 15 minute intervals with a maximum of 2 people.

    2007 Ford Mustang - V6 Deluxe (150A) Convertible

    Pros: Sex appeal, power, safety

    Cons: Rear windows don't operate separately from each other

    Advice: Prepare for lustful stares from other drivers

    The Mustang convertible was a shocker: I've had a Mercedes and SAAB, both fully loaded luxury convertibles, and planned to buy another European luxury conv. Narrowed it down to SAAB, Jag, BMW, all 2007's. Tried the Mustang for fun, expecting cheap craftsmanship (all those stereotypes about American cars being junk). After test-driving the SAAB, Jag, and BMW, I took the Mustang! Set out to spend up to $80K and got everything I wanted in a car for about $30K new. It lets in more road noise than the other brands, and has some plastic or 'pleather' where the other brands use leather or burled woods. It's not as powerful in sudden pick-up, but I don't need to drag-race or suddenly accelerate in my daily 90-mi commute. Those are the only ways in which the Euro models were better. In all other ways, the Mustang compares in comfort, safety, and power. And, unlike the others, it is a Muscle Car, which I am quite unexpectedly enjoying: it's thrilling to hear the engine growl and see other drivers' slightly intimidated looks. I'm actually a shy schoolteacher, but the Mustang brings out the gorilla in me quite pleasingly. Small flaws: the back windows don't go down separately from each other (prefer to put just one down for my dog, and keep the other up so I'm not wasting the A/C); doors rattle when the bass is on a normal setting (a neighbor says that's an easy at-home fix); need more pockets and a bigger glove box (no place to put maps, note pad, CDs); placement of cup holders makes (automatic) shifting awkward if I put a water bottle or other medium-sized or larger drink there. The Mustang is surprisingly versatile: some of its models can be souped up for young guys/gals who want muscle and don't care about the 'comfort group' options . . . or it can be loaded for those of us who are used to the pampering of European luxury models. My model has both, and I could not be any happier!

    2007 Ford Mustang - GT Premium (140A) Coupe

    Pros: styling

    Cons: road noise and rattles

    Advice: make sure you can live with the ride quality

    I've owned my new special order Mustang for two weeks now. A beautiful car, with good power, and fun to drive.Compared to my wifes 05 Lexus ES330, quality does not measure up.The ride has road noise and rattles.The paint job was not near the quality of the Lexus.Sorry, despite the claims, American car companys are not there yet.

    2006 Ford Mustang - GT Premium (140A) Coupe

    Pros: The motor and power this car makes is awsome for the price.

    Cons: Ford needs to fix the minor problems everyone is having with this vechicle.

    Advice: Make sure you test drive the car for 1 day min. and check to see what servies have been done if used.

    I've had nothing but problems with this car. Limited slip went out twice, AC would not hold Freon (6 times in the shop for this fix), both doors rattle (sounds like someone tapping on glass, paint defects from the factory, stereo system locks up half the time and the car surges when you accelerate after a long trip. O yeah, how could I forget...the power break fluid leaked out of the reservoir and went all over the firewall. I’ve had the car in the shop 10+ times now and I’m trying to decide if I should sell or keep. Anyone want a 06 GT with 8k? =)

    2005 Ford Mustang - Premium (160A) Convertible

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Hard cheap plastics used in the interior

    Advice: Consider the V6 manual

    Buy the V6! Buy the V6! Buy the V6! I know this bucks what others have said, but the V6 manual Mustang ROCKS! It only has 20 HP less than the old GT, and with a manual, it's fast...probably as fast as the old GT with an automatic. Even better, mileage rating is 28 mpg on the highway. On a recent 200 mile trip, I got exactly 28 mpg at 75mph. Others have covered the virtues and vices of this wonderful car. My advice is this: Don't overlook the V6. You might just love it as much as I do.

    2006 Ford Mustang - GT Premium (140A) Coupe

    Pros: The muscle car feeling

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: If you want have a great driving experience without spending a lot of money, go Mustang.

    This is one fun car to drive. After owning several Ford products in the 90's and being dissapointed, I switched to Toyota. I am now back to Ford and am quite surprised how much better their products have become. Go Ford!

    2006 Ford Mustang - V6 Premium (120A) Coupe

    Pros: Great Looks

    Cons: Everything breaking every other day.

    Advice: Apparently some shotty cars were made, and I just happen to have got one out of the batch.

    I bought my brand new Mustang a little over a month ago, and it has been in the shop more than it has been in my garage. The air conditioner has gone out twice, the driver seat broke, the headrest lock broke, and now, after taking it in to get the air conditioner serviced..again, they discovered that the lower support arms on the rear of the vehicle are broke. This car has less than 600 miles on it and the dealership is giving me the runaround. They refuse to put me in a new car, even though they agree that this car has way too many problems for a brand new vehicle. Looks like I'm taking my complaints straight to Ford.
