2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
My 06 GT 5 speed transmission AND rear end clunk so bad, I hate to drive this car! I'm a retired dealership auto technician, and cannot believe I cannot find other complaints on this particular problem. Yes, Iím very coordinated when shifting, but itís impossible to even drive this car w/out this annoying issue. It makes me hate the car. When downshifting from 3rd to 2nd, it acts as if the clutch isn't completely disengaging ... the transmission don't grind, but it makes an awful noise. Iíve never banged a gear, or been to the drag strip. Iíd be afraid the driveshaft would come through the floor! Very dissatisfied customer. This is my 4th Stang since 1994.
Looks, interior, overall design.
Better quality control. Driveline slop is totally unacceptable, and the dash rattles on smooth roads is very annoying.
