2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
This car is just awesome. The 4.6L V8 makes the car, and the stock exhaust has a nice rumble to it that screams when you mash the pedal to the floor. I've had the car for 2 years and have about 52,000 miles on her with zero problems. For the price, you really can't beat it either (16300 in 2009 with 33k miles). Its faster, better looking, and really just more of a car than any used BMW/mercedes within its pricing segment. The only comparable competitor in the used car market this years Mustang has is in the 350z, which handles better but lacks in practicality. And on top of that, the Z doesn't sound as good as the 8 and after test driving could be a nightmare as a daily driver
Stereo system is awesome but CD changer bugs out once in a blue moon, the steering wheel and gauge cluster are nice, seats are extremely comfortable. By far the best of all though is being able to outperform cars that cost twice the price of mine. And watching their faces drop as I roar past em =D
Tranny fluid needs to be changed unlike keeping it in their for life like manual states. Interior is cheap but thats to make price lower. The 2011 premium has a nicer interior than most luxury cars I've sat in, and way higher performance (5.0 is practically equal to M3 in performance) but ata price
