'97 Cobra not even missed
By Eric on
2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
Coming from a '97 Cobra that literally shook itself apart over each bump or road ripple and had one problem after another. So it was a pleasant surprise to see there's at least as much if not more power, the ride quality is 1000% better, and it sounds almost as good as the Cobra. Cobra sounded big and mean with a lot of rumbles, GT sounds big and clean without much of that V8 rumbling which I miss a bit - close, but not quite the same. Build quality I have yet to determine as I'm only into day 3 and haven't really hit any nasty bumps where things start to come loose. So far it seems very well built, no rattles or loose parts yet.
Shifter is sweet and easy. Miles to go before empty and average MPG readout is very useful with this kind of gas guzzler.
Any cup, can, or bottle of gatorade in the cup holder interferes with the stick shift. The door side pockets are impossible to get anything out of while driving. The parking brake is at an awkward angle to pull quickly. Wider tires on the premium GT
