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


Review

New chassis, suspension and looks all done to perfection. Solid body doors/hood/trunk close with a 'thump' and offers an extemely quite ride. Ride amazingly soft for sports car but plenty stiff enough for hard turns and braking. 4 discs are even, steady, smooth with no worry handling when hit hard. Dashboard all within easy reach, well organized. Love position/style (flat/round) turn & wiper levers (unique DOWN for mist & up for wipe). Hardly no 'blind spot' (adjustable side mirrors). seat belts are comfy. "MUSTANG" cloth seats look better than they wear. Lots of front room. Gas mileage nice. Why 20 years for a new frame?


Favorite Features

4.0L 240 hp with 5 speed AT is sweetness. Sits higher but squats wider, honeycomb grill, headlight setbacks & sidecovers, 60s FASTBACK (hardtop only), body stickers. dual auto windows (nice idea). Turn/hazard clicker,clean cut dash. Chrome vents. Tight turn radius no rattles.


Suggested Improvements

High beam flash/switch slow response. Trunk (aka: rear glovebox) size.

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


Review

I've only had my Mustang (Premimum V6) for two weeks and have totaly enjoyed it. I took a 500 mile trip, secondary roads and interstates, the second day I owned it, got 25 miles per gallon. I am very satisfied with the performace. The seating position is comfortable (I'm 5'10"). The ride is very good at highway speeds. Very little wind noise. Transmission shifts very smoothly. The only real gripe I have is that the engine is little buzzy at low speeds (25 to 35 mph) before car warms up. I am very satisfied with the car.


Favorite Features

Exterior looks and handling. Shaker 500 stereo system is excellent. Trunk is nice size for car of this size. Good value.


Suggested Improvements

Add some storage in the doors.

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Having owned a number of Japanese and European models of performance cars, getting a taste of purely American performance machinery has been pure hedonistic joy. The Mustang GT embodies all that is good about American automobile manufacturers. The muscular V8 is a true joy to exercise at any speed. This is mainly true because torque is available from any speed to any speed. It does this effortlessly. The sounds the drivetrain makes is a joy to experience. Its guttural and wailing tones lets the driver (as well as anyone within ear shot) know that this is a serious performance machine. This can also be a civilized car. It's at home in daily commuting as it is firing towards redline.


Favorite Features

--Power and plenty of it --Styling (inside and out); nothing can remotely come close --build quality among the best I've experienced --handling; can "point and shoot" among the best --ride; no car with this kind of performance should ride this good --you can't help but be noticed in it.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger back seat.

Review

This is a wonderful car to drive. The Mustang will turn a head or two. There is a small hesitation in the acceleration when you first press the accelerator but when the transmission finds the lower gear, sit back and enjoy the ride.


Favorite Features

Sound system is a plus. Exterior design.


Suggested Improvements

interior options.

2005 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The 2K5 GT is awesome! Power is great, but it is easily manageable on the street; handling is superb for a conventional rear axle. It is a very modern vehicle with a well done retro look. I fell for the look when I first saw it, and knew I had to have one when I drove it.


Favorite Features

Power and looks! The technical sophistication of the car is also great. I am impressed with the whole package.


Suggested Improvements

A bit more lateral leg room (narrower console) and more storage (where I don't know).
