2006 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
Ive had quite a few cars since 1980, but nothing even close to this much fun. ONLY dislikes are the seats need readjusting every time kids get in/out, most of them have fuel fill issues sooner or later - mine hasn't burped gas on me since the second fill up though, and it's hard to powershift into third- it will bark'em though if you get it right. :) Ride is firm, but don't beat you up like my 85 Camaro used to, power is excellent for such a small V8, brakes are incredible. Give the exhaust note a "A+" too. Drive by wire can be quirky, but recalibrating just requires turning key on, waiting for lights to go out, floor it, release, shutoff key. Test drive a GT stick - dare ya not to buy it.
1) Exhaust sounds perfect inside. 2) Feel / layout of controls. 3) Ability to actually lay rubber in a new car with a posi. :) 4) Looks 5) Price=minivan range fun, affordable, and American made.
1) Performance/economy switch for drive by wire throttle. 2) Separate pawl for upper seat latch so readjusting not required. Tip/slide van type seats would be great for those with kids. 3) Bigger gas fill tube - no spills. 4) Inside trunk release button.
