We've owned 2 '05s

2005 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Between my wife and myself, we have ownership experience with close to 40 automobiles. We have owned 2, 2005 Mustangs in under 3 months. We traded our silver convertible when we went for the first oil change, and were shown a beautiful torch red, loaded, V-6 convertible. The stick handles smoothly. The engine has great punch for a 6. The silver was an automatic, and was also very pleasing to drive. These autos corner and change lanes with agility. The leather seats of our red are much more comfortable than the cloth, with more padding where it counts.
We traded from the more understated silver convertible to the torch red. The looks and premium accessories rank #1. The tradition of craftsmanship gives the new owner great confidence in the reliability and durability of the Mustang.
Had 2 roof issues with the silver; the driver side latch and the hydraulics, unsure if was a glitch as opposed to durability (?). Have owned the red for less than a week, so have no statements at this time.
