2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
This my fourth Mustang in 5 years. I just traded in my 2005 for a 2006. These new models ride better, are quieter, and look like a Mustang should. I get stares and compliments all the time. The engine is strong especially in third and fourth gears in the higher rpm range. The car handles well with the almost 50/50 weight distribution. The only problem I have had is with rattles. My 2005 was in the shop three times for this problem. My 2006 has a small rattle. Even so I would still highly recommend the new GT to anyone.
Styling is excellent. The Shaker 500 is a very capable stereo. My 18" polished bullet style wheels rock! Interior upgrade package is well worth the money. Seats are very comfortable.
Better materials on the inside that do not scratch so easy. Fix the rattles! Maybe consider a 3.73 axle. Other than that Ford has done a great job!
