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


Review

I saw the new Mustang, and it was MUST HAVE IT. I have no disappointment at all. The features are easy to use, the drive is FUN, FUN, FUN. The LX 6 cylinder, 4.0 convertible is great. Ride is smooth, even when you hit some bumps. Talked with some people who have the GT, and their only complaint is the gas mileage. If you have never owned a Mustang (this is my first one) don't hesitate -- GET IT.


Best Features

Everything.


Worst Features

More room to lower the steering wheel.

2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My first convertible! Coming from an SUV I worried about driving a car. This is fun, fun, fun. Love the retro look inside and out. Although I downsized it is roomier than expected. I can pack up for the beach in no time. Good pick up, glides through traffic, even in the rain.


Best Features

Shaker 1000 stereo system rocks. You gotta love Torch Red. Beats anti- depressants!

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


Review

This car is a beauty in all ways. The style, the handling, the interior and the sporty exterior. We ordered our '05 V6 convertible exactly the way we wanted it, with all the bells and whistles. It took 2 months to get here but it was well worth the wait. My husband and I are both enjoying this car like no other we have every had. We ride with the top down everyday (and we live in AZ); we may be hot, but at least were styling' and loving it!


Best Features

"MyColor" iIllumination - ability to change dash light colors. Convertible top.


Worst Features

More rear leg room.

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


Review

I've been a driver of pickups for the past 15 years, but after test driving this car, I was a changed man. What a rush! Ford has returned the Mustang to its power status. The GT is a monster out of the box ... if you have a choice, go with the 5 speed versus the auto. It's a muscle car, not a cruiser. This is without a doubt the most fun driving I've ever had!


Best Features

One word: POWER! "My color" option is nice, but takes some getting used to. Shaker 500 system has plenty of thump.


Worst Features

Drink holders are placed right where your arm should rest to shift gears. When a drink is in one, it's awkward to shift around it.

Review

My wife was thinking of getting a new car. I surprised her with a new Mustang. I was gonna buy a coupe but my dealer gave me a great deal on a convertible. As there are still so few convertibles available we were lucky to get one and are we glad we did! It's screaming yellow just like all the print ads. I added the GT grill and fog lights and the car is a real head turner. We love it! The car is a blast to drive and the V6 has plenty of power. No need for a GT. This is the best Mustang to date.


Best Features

Convertible, Shaker500 stereo, overall appearance.


Worst Features

Should have a little better gas mileage.
