2005 Ford Mustang Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Good reliability but the dash cluster sucks everyone I know that has one has went bad. The mpg for a v6 is horrible a v6 should get high 20s, I drive 84 miles a day and get 23 tops. The 2000 I had got 28 same drive.


Best Features

It's comfortable to drive once you get in. Mpg is marginal for a v6 car that's why I bought a v6 was for mpg and it's the same as a v8. Slow warming up for heat..


Worst Features

Fix it where you can fill it at any pump not with the car tilted to the passenger side w front down. Better mpg, have Gauges that work rather than just jump to one spot and stay there

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Growing up with many Fords, even going back to the Model - Ts, I have to say this is the worst car to purchase and has ruined my relationship with Ford and its products. The car was ordered to gain all features desired; the dealership had to order it twice to get it right! As of buying it Jan of 2005 I have had: two dead batteries, all sensors replaced twice for doors and trunk, when filling gas tank the pump clicks out and/or then the tank will over fill and spill about a gallon of gas, windows stuck in the down position when closing the doors, fuel emission issues, same tail light burning out, paint separation from body in spots, constant rattling noise, CONT BELOW


Best Features

Color and style. That's about it.


Worst Features

Very hard gear shifting and becomes stuck at times (Automatic), hard to start, gas gauge stops working when the temperature dips below 75, interior is cheap and "leather" is peeling off seats, coating on stereo comes off when touched, do I need to go on?

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Flawless. The car has traction control and even worked well this winter during all the snow. Has new all season tires same model as original BFG and they are great. The car routinely achieves 26 MPG. We have had the car since new and still get compliments. Great buy and super reliable.

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Looks great. No goodies like some of the new cars, but it's a sports car. Radio is great (500). Only problem is that the engine is cutting out at high speeds. Ford said that it's a gas mixture problem. Most likely where I'm getting gas. Doesn't seem right to me since I have 2 cars and 1 truck all using the same gas and this is the only car having a problem. In fact my whole family is getting gas there with no problems. Ford tested the gas and did not find a problem with it but that's still what they have came up with. One other problem was that the trunk was setting off the door is ajar light. Ford adjusted it.


Best Features

Design is great. Everyone is looking, all over town. Radio sounds great. Everything was good with the interior, but it's a little short on leg room and I added heated seats. The heated seats only cost $399 and it's worth it.


Worst Features

Short on leg room in the front and none in the back. Fix the gas problem. Either say that the car can run on 87 or not. With fuel prices going up it could make a difference to you.

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Very disappointed that I can't get either automatic headlights or even daytime running lights on this car. Other Fords have them available. Daytime running lights are mandatory in Canada, but are not even available in the US. Come on, Ford, wake up and see the light.


Best Features

Great cornering capability, and fantastic acceleration for a six cylinder engine.


Worst Features

Let's get a kit to install automatic headlights.
