2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I have been anticipating the arrival of
the '05 Mustang for about a year and
have been checking with various dealers
now and then as to "when will they be
here"? After being told "in a few
weeks" by most everyone I was shocked
to walk into a dealership that had one
that went from their showroom floor to
my garage floor in just over 1 hour! I
am very please with this car except for
one thing. On acceration (worse when
cold) I get somewhat of a rumble from
the transmission(5 speed). Their
service department said it was gear
lash and nothing could be done about it.
Has anyone else noticed this? Where
should I go to get help? Thanks for
The car handles great, the body is
solid and tight and I don't feel like
I'm sitting on the floor as in my
former NSX or 300 ZX. I live in the
Mountains, with lots of twisting roads
and find the car is great fun to
drive. The fit and finish is excellent
and over all it is very comfortable.
Just fix the tranny! I will probably be
buying a convertable this spring in
which case I will get an automatic.
