"Very reliable. Not a single problem in over 2 years of ownership and 27,000 miles, even after the $5000 of speed and suspension modifications done to it. Everything is strong about this car. The 5 speed transmission is definitely a plus. I would't drive anything else except my other Mustang which is a classic. :)"
"Bought my GT Convertible new in May 05 and have had no issues at all. Love the styling and the performance is great. Have the room in the back for the baby seat ( no minivans here !). Interior could be of higher quality but there is no other 300hp, 4 seater convertible on the market for $30k ."
"Love our 06 Tungsten Gray V-6. With 5 in the floor, my "Eleanor" is responsive and can take a curve with the new rear sway bar. Bought new in 2006, I've had at least 25 people stop me and comment on the car - and we live in the country! Added an American Thunder pipe on the back and she just growls!"
"I'm now 60 yrs of age and I purchased an 08 Mustang Shelby GT 500. I looked at a Corvette but really glad I went with this car. I've always wanted a Shelby. I guess as the old saying goes. "All good things come to those who wait." My plans are to pass it down to my daughter then from her to my grandchild. Would recommend this over a corvette for the price difference anyday. "BUY ONE""
"Within 1 week of buying the car with <17,000 miles & 2 years old, it wouldn't start. We had it towed to the dealership and they fixed it under warranty, but it has never been completely fixed. It's jerky about 30% of the time when pushing on the gas. No one has been able to fix it. We've already burned through 2 sets of brakes under normal driving conditions in a little over 1 year. We do not drive the car hard at all. Now we've started having issues again with it not starting up right away. Friends who have newer mustangs have nowhere near the kind of problems we've had. I would recommend a mustang to someone who wants one, just not an '05."
"I have owned my GT500 for 1.5 years now. Still drives as good as the first day. Love the horsepower, handling and especially the styling. It is a great car and a fantastic value at $50k plus new. It is a head turner and it always ends up being a topic of conversation everywhere I go. I am in sales so people definitely remember me because of this car.
No regrets. Get one if you can and hold on to it as a great car and decent investment."
