2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car used with 17,000 miles and it was in perfect condition. The acceleration is decent but could always use more power. Handling has been excellent even in the 3 blizzards we've had this year. You do get bounced around quite a bit on bumpy roads but then again, it's not exactly a luxury car. My Color back-lighting is a cool feature to play around with. Insurance surprisingly wasn't that bad (considering I live in NJ). All in all this car has been amazing to own and a blast to drive considering it's a 110 HP improvement over my previous car.


Favorite Features

My Color, convertible, styling inside and out, pony package headlights, and as stupid as it sounds, the heater in the car gets hot really quick. Great for bitter cold winters.


Suggested Improvements

The 2011 mustang is pretty much going to take care of everything I was going to put down here. (More horsepower, better gas mileage, and improved interior) Also, it wouldn't hurt to MOVE THE CUP HOLDERS. It gets annoying in an automatic having a drink there,I can't imagine driving a manual like that

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have enjoyed my Mustang convertible for 3 years. It makes driving fun! Top is down unless it's raining. AC/Htr work fine to keep me comfortable in Texas heat. It's my car... it's my fun....it's my identity!


Favorite Features

Convertible top!! Engine sound


Suggested Improvements

Key suggestions would be: automatic top down, don't like holding button. Connection for iPod and gps.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Loved the car. I'm 6,5" 260 bodybuider frame and never felt crowded, lots of legroom. Usually got around 22 mpg per fiilup. No problems. Just got the fever for the new Jeep unlimited Sahara 4dr, but will probably regret the trade


Favorite Features

Shaker stereo, convertible


Suggested Improvements

None

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Where do I start, I bought this car with 14,000 miles. In feb 07 a month later I had it back to the dealer for the paint coming off the bumper. Got that fixed 2 weeks later, my school books where soaking wet I left my bookbag in the trunk. I thought the top was leaking, but after 8 trips to dealer with the car being there for as many 30 days to get it back with same each time we cant find the major leak. I have come to the conculsion that it is leaking from the weld in the body. Back to body problems the Mustang stripe has come off 2 times. I finally got tired of the dealer being so blind to the problem. I called a lemon law lawyer, so now I have a pending lawsuite against Ford. For all my trouble


Favorite Features

I like the color red with black leather int.I has a v6 plenty of power the car has been really good engine trouble free wise. I love the retro style a lot. I got rid of the factory tires bad quailty and now the stang drives and handles perfect. I truly like this car a lot.


Suggested Improvements

Top is hard to close, poor paint quailty, Ford just needs to work on making quailty car body decisions like parts, paint, stripes.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent all round fun to drive car. Our V6 is equiped with the optional Pony package. This really helps out in the handling dept with added rear anti- sway bar, ABS,and 17" alloy rims. Take one for a drive. You'll love it.


Favorite Features

Convertible top, decent 210 HP V6 engine.


Suggested Improvements

Can alway use more power and better gas mileage.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've always wanted a retro style Mustang and now that I've got it, I couldn't be happier. Excellent handling and enough power in the V6 that you don't need to drop the extra for the V8. Seat belts are tight, but that adds to the sports car/power feel. I have people stop me almost every day to compliment my car. Wouldn't have gotten it without the Pony package. Just adds exactly what is needed to make this one incredible machine!


Favorite Features

Shaker 500 stereo with speed volume. With the top down, you don't lose your stereo's performance.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk release inside the car, not just on the keychain. Rain pouring in from the weather stripping is common to all convertibles, just wish they could come up with a fix for that!

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Once owned 68 Firebird convertible and recently turned 40 and couldn't resist. This is a nice and fun reproduction of the original. I bought the Pony Package V6 convertible in Windveil Blue and am very happy with it. A good value vehicle for the money.


Favorite Features

Nice body lines, good handling, easy to use top, Shaker 500 is one of the best sounding factory stereos I've heard.


Suggested Improvements

Weatherstripping around top of door mirror doesn't always close right when door is shut against side post of windshield. Dual exhaust on V6 model would improve performance and sales.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My mother has a 6 banger '04. My '06 pony package is far superior in every category (not taking into account fuel). Yeah, I have a lead foot. With a GT I would be in jail as speeding is way too easy with the Pony. The handling is nice for such a heavy car but for the money you can't beat it. Be ready for some road noise, but get the Shaker sound system and you'll never notice it. I've only put 5000 miles on it but haven't had a single problem other than the frequent compliments.


Favorite Features

Traction Control - without it you'll just sit and spin. Tight steering makes you feel like you're behind the wheel of a real sportscar.


Suggested Improvements

A upgrade on the interior. Chrome colored plastic looks cheap next to leather seats.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This V6 is surprisingly fast. I am sorry it's not the GT but price was prohibitive. Mainly use this on weekends when top down driving is the most fun. I like the fact that the V6 exhaust has a pleasant sound although I'm told switching to the right side GT muffler will improve the sound. Won't sound like a V8 but a more throaty sound none the less. I'm considering it but my selling dealer says a different muffler could void the engine warranty. I don't buy that but I'm afraid to take the chance. Maybe after the warranty expires.


Favorite Features

The pony package is my favorite feature. The bigger wheels and tires were worth the price. Also like the interior upgrade options like the changing color dash lights.


Suggested Improvements

I wish Ford would have put locks on the console lid and glove box. Can't leave it parked with the top down with anything of value in the storage areas. I don't mean jewelry, but stuff like your registration or other papers.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

When I first test drove this car I was truly amazed at the way it performed. I had been driving SUVs for many years and the thought of a rear-wheel drive car was unrealistic. It handles extremely well, it's sharp looking (I'm always getting compliments on it) and it truly is fun to drive. I am completely sold!


Favorite Features

The overall style of the car.


Suggested Improvements

I have the convertible model and the seat belts are extremely tight, I would work on their comfort. Also, when it rains the roof does not leak, however, if you open the windows water pours in; a grove along the roof line would be extremely helpful. A little more room in the back seat.
