2006 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Bought mine used 20k on it and have added a SCT tuner with Ford CAI and Flow master mufflers.I get 19.5 mpg in town and 24.5 mpg highway on regular 87 octane gas with normal driving. No major mechanical issues to report and have taken several long road trips in it with good comfort. The mustang GT offers great bang for the buck performance and decent fuel economy. The car is easy to work on for all the do it your self guys and gals. Would I buy a mustang again you betcha...


Best Features

Shaker 500 rocks when tuned the 4.6 produces smooth power with a sweet sound....


Worst Features

Ford addressed that in 2011 with the introduction of the 5.0 motor and 6 speed transmission.

2006 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my preowned 06 a few weeks back and am very glad I did. Screaming Yellow, car had some upgrades from previous owner (Airaid air filter system, Flowmaster exaust) It's about 360 horses of extreme fun. Although the car had 51K on it, Honda dealer included 3 year 36K bumper to bumper waurranty, and I plan to get the best out of those 36,000 miles. At 45 it was a mid-life crisis the wife even agreed with. LOL


Best Features

Body Styling, and power.

2006 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I drive 50 miles each way to work and traded my 01 accord for a 06 mustand in 2008. Well 80k miles later the engine starts having this knocking noise and significant loss of power and not because I don't take care of my car as I changed my oil every 3K miles and keep it very well maintained. After Ford looked at the car they quoted me $4,100 to fix what they called a cam phaser issue (pumps oil to the top end of the motor). Needless to say I pulled the car from Ford and took to a performance shop, who said it needed a new motor for $4,800. Well thats great but this is not my toy its my daily driver. Long story short before you buy research cam phasers this appears to be an issue in many Ford

2006 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This car is just awesome. The 4.6L V8 makes the car, and the stock exhaust has a nice rumble to it that screams when you mash the pedal to the floor. I've had the car for 2 years and have about 52,000 miles on her with zero problems. For the price, you really can't beat it either (16300 in 2009 with 33k miles). Its faster, better looking, and really just more of a car than any used BMW/mercedes within its pricing segment. The only comparable competitor in the used car market this years Mustang has is in the 350z, which handles better but lacks in practicality. And on top of that, the Z doesn't sound as good as the 8 and after test driving could be a nightmare as a daily driver


Best Features

Stereo system is awesome but CD changer bugs out once in a blue moon, the steering wheel and gauge cluster are nice, seats are extremely comfortable. By far the best of all though is being able to outperform cars that cost twice the price of mine. And watching their faces drop as I roar past em =D


Worst Features

Tranny fluid needs to be changed unlike keeping it in their for life like manual states. Interior is cheap but thats to make price lower. The 2011 premium has a nicer interior than most luxury cars I've sat in, and way higher performance (5.0 is practically equal to M3 in performance) but ata price
