"Wanted 6 spd manual but ended getting automatic and glad i did since this is my daily driver and traffic can be a PIA at times and the auto is perfect.Don't know why everyone complains about the interior or solid Axel on this gen Mustang I think its fine and i haven't noticed any hopping on the rear end over bumps."

"I purchased this car in 2012 as a used fleet vehicle. She has a shaker sound system and usb port for plugging in your smartphone or mp3 player. She can be upgraded to add a visual system in the car for video and her engine is in fabulous condition with regular oil changes performed, she has not needed any major maintenance in the 3 years I have owned her. The top is pristine with no rips or runs in it and the tops mechanism works great. Latches are clean with no breaks or warping. She had a fender bender shortly after purchase, which was immediately repaired by a reputable body shop and she looks gorgeous. I get compliments on this baby all the time. All original carpets, keys and upholstery. She needs a detail to make her A+++, right now she is an A+."

"This car has a great amount of power, handles really well, and is very comfortable. The styling on this car is beautiful both inside and out, much better the the '03 Mustang I previously owned. I absolutely love this car and its a great value for its price!"

Love to upgrade with all the after market things

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The only thing I've encountered is rear end whine with the Track Package and 3.73 with Torsen rear gears. It's a joy to ride, each time. Installed Ford Racing Handling Package, MGW shifter, custom stripes, BMR LCAs, UCA with brackets, Michelin pilot sport tires, SCT 93 octane tune, FRPP touring axle-back (by Borla).Added an MMD ducktail spoiler and custom leather console and shift boot. Ordered mine with the glass roof, comfort package with the puddle lamps and heated seats, and standard premium package."

screems for attention

"Pro:- 1.Best car for the price, sure performance and comfortable for atleast two, but i had no problems/complaint even with four, I went for many 5-hour drives with family and friends and never got any complaints from rear seat passengers (yes leg room is less compared to four doors but its just fine) 2.with V6 u get 31MPG on HW thats sweet for performance car 3.traction control on 2011 and onwards is amazing so dont worry about snow anymore, at the max u need winter tires. Cons: 1.hood is aluminum to reduce weight & there is rust issue with all of them. So if you are in snow/rain location then keep checking ur hood specially edges for rust indication. they will fix it only up to 30K, as a precaution wax it every month in rain/snow season at least the hood)"

"Like driving a race car. Revs to 7000 rpm in drive mode, with an automatic transmission. Sport mode? Available at a fingertip, but I rarely use it. I can usually ride in air conditioned comfort and "take care of business" at the same time. If I do need to punch it, the a/c kicks off above 5000 rpm on the occasion of needing extra power. Then the a/c resumes while your opponent disappears behind. QUITE a car, and at the price, in a league of it's own. 93 octane gets 420 hp and 390 ft lb. 0-60 in about 4.8, quarter in 13.1 at 110 mph. Faster cars? Sure, but they will be priced at 48000 and above. Just get one...you know you want to...."
