2005 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
As soon as the new Mustangs hit the market in 2004, I knew I had to have one. I found a GT with the premium equipment package just the way I wanted it and at a good price (I was lucky) and took it home in December 2004. The car is now three and a half years old with about 15,000 miles on the odometer. I really enjoy driving the Mustang, and love the looks. Being an early build unit (built on October 4, 2004) it did have many of the bugs and issues the first batch suffered from, including issues with the radio, fuel tank, battery, alternator, and front end suspension. All repairs were covered by the warranty.
Power, feel, sound, style.
The Shaker 500 sound system is balky and continues to give me problems. Find another sound system for the future Mustangs.
