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.
