This car has been an absolute dream to own and drive. For a woman who has always loved Mustangs, this is possibly a perfect match. The handling is great for cruising, it really hugs the curves. All 300 horses, given the room to run, performs wonderfully. For people who love to listen to tunes, the system can't be beat.
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.
