2008 Ford Mustang Convertible GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car. I have the 5 speed automatic and it performs without trouble. Sure the gas mileage isn't that great, but really, who would expect that from a muscle car? The only trouble is the really noisy top latches. The rattle like crazy with the top up. At first, no rattles, but as the weeks went by, the latches were rattling like crazy. Ford replaced them and they were fine for a while, now they are rattling again.


Best Features

Power, sound, ride


Worst Features

Better interior materials, better engineering for the top. My 1962 Ford Thunderbird doesn't rattle and it's 46 years old!

Review

I work downtown Los Angeles and park at the country club with all sorts of exotic cars, let alone your M6s, S8s etc., but the valet guys favor my car. The people from GAS (Pimp my ride) spruced it up with 20 inch Boss wheels, Bassani exhaust, cold air in- take, computer chip and Eibach lowered suspension. In all I've spent an extra 10k on extras and it was well worth it. This care simply can't sit still and it's made to gun it with a mighty roar. I'd only wish I would have used the 1,200 bucks for the stereo and gotten an after-market system.

Needs better interior material.

Review

This is a great car! I love how it handles, I have the automatic and it shifts smoothly and no real hesitation in regards to power. I get an average of 19 mpg around town and got 25 mpg up in the mountains! The V-8 is powerful and easy to control, the exhaust note is fantastic! The California package is a good package for the money, much better than the lame Shelby package ( not the 500).


Best Features

Engine, body style, stereo, transmission, wheels, CA package, everything!


Worst Features

Better quality plastics. Why no protection for the radiator at the bottom of the grille? A bit of cowl shake causes the top to creak a bit more than I would like it too.

Review

Just purchased this car 2 weeks ago to relieve my mid-life crisis. I was smiling all the way home, driving it with the top down. This car is all I expected and more. Probably not the most comfortable ride for some (it's not a Lexus), but this is more of a sports car and I do like the feel of the road coupled with the 5 speed manual transmission. Amazing pickup, very easy to go way over the speed limit, seems to always want to go faster, gas mileage not bad for a GT. Leather buckets are comfy. Have always had good luck with Fords, I'm hoping this one will also be as reliable.


Best Features

The retro-looking dash, very comfortable interior, excellent sound system even with the top down(Shaker 500), sound of the exhaust, and acceleration. It appears to be a solidly-built car. Windveil Blue exterior color looks great with the black top/charcoal interior. As a bonus, made in the USA!


Worst Features

Exterior temp readout.
