2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I just leased the GT premium, and its a
monster off of the line! If you are
just looking for 0-60's, then get this
car (better buy than the Pontiac GTO)!
The new Mustang is a huge improvement
over its predecessors...but when
comparing it against the 350Z or the
RX8, you just dont get the type of
handling like those cars. GT will smoke
the 350Z, RX8, and maybe a WRX STi; but
it doesnt handle like them. GT is also
gas, and be prepared to stop at the
pumps frequently! I also had trouble
with the front wheel barrels twice since
i got it...but they fixed it for no
extra charge (under warranty).
Performance...this car is all about more
bang for the buck! The
interior...cheap, but a huge improvement
from my 2000 GT. You will love this car
on the highway (especially one where is
Better gas mileage, this thing is a gas
guzzler! Better ride (you wont like the
pot holes on the road), a "t" top or a
moon roof would be nice.
Traction/Stability (both of them) should
be standard features...since I live in
snow/rain dominated region (think about
Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa weather)
