2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I have owned many Mustangs from a 66GT, 85GT, 93LX, 99GT and a 91 GT that I traded on this car. This is far and away a better designed and assembled car. The automatic transmission in this car is the best shifting overdrive Ford transmission yet. It accelerates and shifts very fast for a stock car yet is smooth when driving normally. The power top is quiet and goes up and down quickly. The controls are laid out well and everything is within the drivers reach. The stereo is the Shaker and sounds okay (speaker placement is difficult in a convertible) but could be improved with the upgrade to the 1000. The fit and finish is the best I've seen from Ford. No matter where you go people stare.
The exterior and interior styling are my favorite features.
Better stereo (my Mach 460 in my 99 sounded better than this Shaker 500), larger wheel and tire package (width not diameter). Cheaper price? if they can offer cash back now why not just lower the price across the board and offer the savings on the sticker with no discounts?
