2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I bought my '05 Mustang GT this past February and really love it! The performance and the muscle sound of the car takes me back to my '67 HP 289. It does, however, make some very annoying popping noises in the front steering mechanism that even my dealer recognized as a problem. It's taken Ford engineers over 2 months to come up with a fix and mine is still not corrected (now we're waiting on the parts). If the car was not such a fun vehicle, I would be very disappointed. I hate to admit this but this is precisely why I've not bought American built vehicles for a long time.
Strong engine, responsive mix of power and just plain fun to drive. The Shaker 500 sound system is excellent and I love playing MP3's because you can get 150 songs on each disc times six total.
Take care of the suspension issues and be aware that fixes take a long time.
