2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
We waited patiently for our Mustang to arrive. Three other individuals waited behind us in case our purchase did not go through. We drove away the happy owners of the 2005 Mustang GT Premium in Screaming Yellow. We chose to add the racing stripe package to complete the look. We get lots of compliments,with most people saying the Screaming Yellow looks the best. After a few weeks of driving it, we began to notice a popping noise coming from the front wheel area. The noise was most noticeable when turning slowly or backing and turning. Service department adjusted steering but noise continued to increase. Problem turned out being the upper strut bearing assembly which the service department replaced.
The 300hp V8 engine with manual transmission.
Ford should inform all vehicle owners of problems with any models either through email or through the selling dealerships. The problem with our Mustang was also apparent in others, but not enough of a problem for Ford to issue a recall. It would have saved me and my selling dealership a lot of time.
