2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I have had my '05 GT for 12 days now and it is flat-out the best new Ford in nearly forever. Over the weekend I took it down to Arizona (from Nevada) and, with cruise set at 80 mph, I averaged nearly 27 mpg. Overall I am getting about 16 in town and 25 on the highway -- just about what the window sticker says (that's a first!). Unlike previous Mustangs, this one actually handles well. Its been raining virtually non-stop here since I picked up the car and I have yet to really break loose with the traction control on. The interior is a perfect throwback to the '60's heritage and the sound system is amazing. BTW, I paid slightly below MSRP for mine.
MyColor instrument package. It may sound funny, but instrument lighting color is a big thing for me. The power and handling are perfect. The Shaker 1000 rocks. The fold-down rear seats actually lends a little (gasp) utility to the vehicle. The back seats are comfortable, if small.
