2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
As a senior owner who bought and kept a disappointing Infiniti G35 Coupe for only two months, this Mustang is much more than I expected. Excellent, sporty ride, quiet (when you want it to be), and great handling. Very responsive powertrain and a bargain for less than $30k. Redfire metallic with parchment leather is a striking combination.
Very comfortable driver's seat, versatile air conditioning vents and an attractive dash arrangement with optional interior upgrade. Exhaust sound is worth the price of admission! Trunk is surprisingly roomy, especially with fold down seat backs.
Headrests are canted forward too much, Homelink, outside temp and compass would be nice. Make automatic climate control available along with satellite radio. None of these are necessary but only add to the excellent value in Ford's best effort in a long time.
