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


Review

This Mustang was made on 04 April and arrived on 22 April. Two major problems; one being the gas tank and error message. A new sensor has been added to the gas tank but the problem still exists with the gauge showing 1/2 tank when the tank in full. The second problem is the transmission slipping into neutral for about a second lately while the shifter is in drive, then bumping into gear. Transmission is being replaced under warranty.


Best Features

Exterior design. Looks like a 1968 fastback.


Worst Features

Put an American engine linked to an American transmission, not an American engine linked to a German transmission in the V6.

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


Review

Everyone gets excited when they see the new Ford Mustang. It has a gorgeous body style, but to me, that is it. It gets poor gas mileage. Diagnostic says 21 mpg, I only get 12-15. A number of problems which Ford keeps saying "normal characteristics", which another dealer will say differently. The gas tank has been replaced twice and I still have problems filling it up and they refuse to put in a third tank, but technically, I have had three different gas tanks in the car.


Best Features

Its fast! I like the new body style and it has great trunk space compared to other years.


Worst Features

Needs a new gas tank fit to the new body design, stop the popping in the transmission and the engine winding.

LOVE this car, have had almost a year now and love it more every day. Don't need the GT to get your heart rate up, this V6 flies. No disappointments here.

More sound dampening.

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


Review

Having a hard time putting gas in the tank. It takes about 15 minutes to put gas in the car. It will only go in at very slow speed, like in between off and start.


Best Features

Very nice looks inside and out.


Worst Features

Bigger fuel tank, tilting steering wheel.
