Value for money
By Modred on
2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
When my BMW Z3 M Coupe was destroyed in a fire, I decided to go with the Mustang because the insurance money almost covered the entire cost. My last Mustang was a '91 and obviously, the 2007 is vastly better. The ride is comfortable and fun and the engine delivers. Donīt go expecting true sports-car performance though. The Stang drives like an American car, despite Ford's best efforts. Engine response remains slightly sluggish and handling is a bit wobbly. That said, you wonīt find better performance or looks for a comparable price anywhere, so some compromise is in order.
It looks amazing. And with the optional Shaker 1000, it also sounds brilliant. And again, value for money is unbeatable, especially in the EU, where the Stang costs less than a European car with half the power.
Interior build quality is shoddy with too much cheap plastic. Rear seats are only viable if the people in the front are short. Cup holder is awkward with stick-shift, no optional ashtray or lighter either.
