GT Convertible Impression
By steve on
2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I've had my GT vert for a month and have put 2,000 miles on it. Love the appearance and all the compliments from strangers who just walk up and want to talk about the car. Wished the 2005 had some of the features that were in the prototypes but not included, like 18" wheels and the decorative intake cover. There were minor convenience things that were not included in 2005, like interior trunk release that I was disappointed in. The car is fast, but like many Mustang owners I want it to go faster. Computer thinks too much and the throttle by wire causes a delay when accelerator is floored for passing and merging. Would highly recommend but there are few tweaks that need to be done.
Styling, handling, front fog lights on GT. Once the computer recognizes you want it to go fast, it takes off like a bat out of you know where. The handling in the turns is great at high speeds for the axle setup.
Stop the throttle by wire delay PLEASE! It almost seems like the car is asking "Are you sure you want me to go this fast?" The answer is YES I DO! Interior trunk release and a liitle better quality on the paint. Not that it looks bad by any means, just think it could have been a little better.
