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


Review

I bought my Mustang at the end of March, and I love it. The design is aggressive and stands apart from the rest of the "bubble cars" on the road today. I was surprised at how high the side windows are, giving a "chop top" feel. I cannot get over how much fun this car is to drive. I now look for excuses to drive somewhere or lengthen my trips. My car is sonic blue with white stripes, and it really turns heads. Instant celebrity. I'm glad I got the premium model, as I think I'd be disappointed with a base model. The car I purchased was special ordered with the My Color dash backlighting, which I think is silly, but fun to play with. The engine is more accessible than other new cars too.


Favorite Features

The 6 cylinder 4.0 packs lots of power, and the car gives you the impression it really wants to move--like you have to rein it back rather than push it hard. It's easy to "feel" the dimensions of the car, in turns and while parking. It has a wonderful exhaust growl and a highly confident feel to it.


Suggested Improvements

One thing I would like to see on the car is less plastic. Metal mirror caps will be better than plastic in the long haul. The standard interior should look like the sport package, with more metal trim. I've had some skipping problems with the Shaker 500 CD changer, especially early in the morning.

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


Review

I am unhappy with the all new Mustang. In addition to poor gas mileage, I have had the gas tank replaced three times already. The pump was stopping as if the tank was full, as well as slow fill and spitting back. Dealership said nothing was wrong. They did contact headquarters to find out that there is indeed this type of problem with the vehicle, but not on all of them. They replaced it twice and did not work. Finally they redesigned it. Took 5 months to solve problem. It is a fast car with a great sound system. But, too many "characteristics" that take away from the car. Any problem that I have with the car, they say is a characteristic of the car.


Favorite Features

I love the seats and 6 CD changer. I love the speed volume feature where you can set it to get higher when you speed up and goes lower when you slow down.


Suggested Improvements

More space in the back seat as well as leg room. At least 1-2 more cupholders and bigger mapholders on the door panels.

Review

The interior is set to excite ... it is truly a cockpit! From the minute the engine roars to life to the end of the ride when you set the alarm, this car ROCKS. The steering is incredible on this monster - tight with no mushy give in the middle; handles like a dream. I thought I might have fun with this car for a year or so & save it as a weekend car after that, however I can see myself driving her on my 40 minute commute for years to come. The exterior experience is simple - hope you like to get looked at. The car feels like a car again - solid. I bought a Sonic Blue Premium 4LV6 and there are times the attention is "ALMOST" embarrassing, but I'm learning to get over that!


Favorite Features

Sports Interior Upgrade; the aluminum leather steering wheel & shifter completes the look of the chrome accented controls & vents. LOVE the old school numbering. The one touch up/down on BOTH windows is also great. All radio & cabin controls are available at literally a stretch of a finger.


Suggested Improvements

The seatbelt point of attachment should adjust up & down for better placement. The rest are superficial improvements. Might be nice to have a sunroof option on the coupe - but it's SOOO unnecessary. Also would like the gear indicator to display on the dash rather than just at the shifter.

Review

Just turned 1,000 miles on my '05 V6 Mustang. Acceleration and braking are great, as is the 5-speed auto trans. The car is very responsive and controllable, but the rear end can scoot sideways on you a bit when cornering fast on rough pavement. The solid rear axle handles differently then independent suspension, but the car is a blast to drive. The sound of the engine/exhaust is deep and so nice you will keep the radio off. The interior is comfortable and very cool looking. I highly recommend the interior upgrade package. The extra chrome, computer, gauges, My Color, and skid plates are worth twice the upgrade cost. The engineering and build quality of this vehicle is outstanding.


Favorite Features

Interior upgrade package, leather seating, exterior appearance package, 4-wheel disc ABS, and chrome wheels. Perfect styling, perfect exhaust note, and 4.0 liters of Detroit iron. This car is the total package and is so much fun ... even standing still. Great price too!


Suggested Improvements

The V6 should come with dual exhaust pipes.
