Great Fun - Poor Quality

2007 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I just loved the look of the 2005+ Mustangs when they came out. Finally I got a 2007 GT in 2008. Pros: Great styling inside and out. Has that great V8 muscle car sound and feel that makes it fun to drive. Cons: What is standard trim on most cars like aluminum accents and painted mirrors and such would cost many hundreds of dollars to get for the mustang as aftermarket parts. Engineering and build quality is very poor - 2005 to 2009 mustangs plagued with many problems including stalling, water leaks, suspension clunks, interior rattles, freezing e-brakes, etc. etc. Not a car for where it gets below freezing or rains a lot.
The retro look of it inside and out. Muscle car feel and very fun to drive. Makes you feel you are driving a true icon of the American Free Spirit and a testament to brute American Muscle. Surprising amount of space in trunk and fold down rear seats provide good utility for such a car.
Add painted mirrors found on even cheap cars. Get rid of poor design flaws in subsequent model years when they are found to be issues not just keep churning out more defective product year after year and leaving it up to the consumer and dealers to deal with - hopefully while still under warranty
