2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I just bought a 2006 GT Conv with 13000 miles. I've had it two days and already love it. My other vehicle is a Mazda CX-9 (for the family). This one is fun for me and I can still haul the family for fun trips. With the GT (V8), I'm surprised that I'm averaging 20-23 mpg--not bad considering the 300 horses and irresitible urge to nail it and nail it and well you get the point. Buy this vehicle. If $ are tight, I recommend an 06 or 07--great bargains out there. I personally chose a used GT instead of a new V6. I would have considered a used 05, but I never get a car its first year in production--no idea if there's any real basis in that- -just my personal hangup.
Performance, looks, seating capacity of 4 when considering the looks, and performance stereo
Slightly better interior quality. While it looks good, it does have a bit of a "plasticy" feel....but who cares
