2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
After searching all the competitors out there, including the German and Japanse cars, how could anyone not consider a Mustang? I bought a GT convertible. Wow, for the money this car has no peer. Right out of the box the power and handling of this car are fantastic. To think I can get add-on accessories to boost this performance to even higher levels without breaking the bank is even better. Top down driving is fun. Your passengers in the back may ask you to roll up the windows on the freeway, but in the front seats the wind is manageable. The family loves the car and want to take it everywhere. Four seats. Great stereo with excellent bass response. Very comfortable seats (I'm over 6') too.
Power and handling. Front seat leg room. Stereo. Price!
It would be nice to be able to order this car and pick it up at the factory (such as with the Corvette). Ford needs to force the dealerships to set up a priority system for specialty Mustangs, such as the Shelby, without the price gouging. I almost walked from Ford because of this practice.
