I have owned many Mustangs from a 66GT, 85GT, 93LX, 99GT and a 91 GT that I traded on this car. This is far and away a better designed and assembled car. The automatic transmission in this car is the best shifting overdrive Ford transmission yet. It accelerates and shifts very fast for a stock car yet is smooth when driving normally. The power top is quiet and goes up and down quickly. The controls are laid out well and everything is within the drivers reach. The stereo is the Shaker and sounds okay (speaker placement is difficult in a convertible) but could be improved with the upgrade to the 1000. The fit and finish is the best I've seen from Ford. No matter where you go people stare.
The exterior and interior styling are my favorite features.
Better stereo (my Mach 460 in my 99 sounded better than this Shaker 500), larger wheel and tire package (width not diameter). Cheaper price? if they can offer cash back now why not just lower the price across the board and offer the savings on the sticker with no discounts?
This is a great car to cruise in, to commute in, and to have fun being "bad" in. The power and the sound of the throaty exhaust will always put a smile on your face. Therapists should have very little business from owners of this vehicle. It looks great, handles surprisingly well, and has power to spare. My only regret is that I did not buy this car a year ago!
The handling, the engine (power, power, power), the comfort of the front seats, and the great sound of the exhaust system.
I wish the review mirror was self-dimming and included a compass. Also, would like to have audio controls on the steering wheel. Additionally, the quality of some of the plastic should be upgraded.
Big bang for the buck. Roomy enough for two and space for luggage. Great styling inside and out. Constantly get positive comments on redfire color and 20" wheels and tires. Great handling and breaking. Acceleration is great and lays rubber on command. Great rumble from dual exhausts--may upgrade to Ford racing exhaust. Worth every penny of $31,000 price tag!
The car is fun to drive and very comfortable during distance driving. I've owned it 2 months and still can't get the smile off my face. The only negative is the interior. The plastic is cheap but the overall car makes up for it. The car is a head-turner.
The 2006 Mustang must have been built with cost the most important item. It has no under hood light, foot well lights or daytime running lamps. Small items to be sure but should not add to the total cost. The five speed transmission does not shift smoothly. Was told by the dealership that nothing could be done.
Plenty of power, convertible top operates very smoothly and the brakes are top notch. Fit and finish are fine. It is a pleasure to drive.
Put in the small stuff that a vehicle of this cost and type should have.
