60s Mustang with today's best
By California Tom on
Vehicle2005 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewI first read about the car last year and it reminded me of my '69. 5 months and 9000 miles later, it is my dream car. The distinction of my '69 with today's comfort and safety. The 5 speed manual isn't the smoothest around, but get it - an easy drop down to fourth and I am gone in traffic. Handling is spot on; I love taking curves in this thing. With upgrades, great interior/exterior styling cues; hardly a day goes by without a look, smile or comment. Averaging 23-26 MPG. The stereo sounds great and I can drive for hours either on cruise control or through traffic with a wide smile. Trunk holds golf bag, softball bags and groceries with ease, but not for a family of 4.
Best FeaturesEngine and manual transmission work like a dream. The styling of the inside (with premium package) and outside. Shaker 500 stereo with clear sound which you can crank up. Gas mileage just a tad under my old 4 cylinder Nissan. Oh, and the customizable computer display for mileage, trip, etc.
Worst Features#1 - cabin trunk release. #2 - dual exhaust for the V6.
