Bought this car used in 2006 with only 24,xxx miles on it. Now there are 92,xxx and it is still amazing. I have only had one issue besides the routine things (oil change, brakes, etc) and that was the alternator. I had bought the extended warranty thus even that was covered. I chose this car for its 5 star crash rating, the powerful engine (use to have a 4 cylinder), nice under hood layout, and, of course, looks. It is a mustang after all. Only issues I have with the car is the poor gas mileage and the not so smooth ride.
Love the performance, I can do whatever I want on the highway with no issues and pull any hill I need to. Sound system is great! The front passengers have all the room they need. Handles well in good weather.
Rear wheel drive poor in rain / snow / ice. You can feel every bump in the road (but that's what you get with a sports vehicle).
I have the same car also and had a 2008 Dodge Avenger 2.4, This car was a nightmare. I hated going up hills. Lol Now I'm happy. Lol
I sold a newer car and got this. So far one of the funnest cars I ever owned.
