2008 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

First and last FORD I'll never buy a Ford again! I agree with everything the editor said in his review about the mustang, it's a really nice car for the first 5,000 miles or so. Check out the TSB service bulletins for the mustang before you buy one! Many problems, engine misfire, water leaks by the buckets from dashboard, auto tranny failures,can't fill gas tank,and Ford is the worst at fixing the problems. They give it the sunshine treatment for the expensive problems until your warranty is up. I have replaced the trans, a/c comp, alternator, 3-batteries, power steering pump, and more!


Best Features

It would be a really cool car if Honda, or Toyota had built it. The All-American Sports car is 65% made in Mexico and China.


Worst Features

GET another auto maker to build it! RE-THINK MUSTANG

2008 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Ford got the Bulllitt Mustang right in so many ways: I love the low-key, retro styling cues throughout. No stripes, no fins, no flames, and very little chrome. Slick shifter, engine pulls hard, and has a satisfying muscle car exhaust note. I owned an '86 GT and this thing handles like it's from another planet. You can actually throw it around curves without the rear end breaking loose at the slightest tap on the gas. Excellent seats and very comfortable on a couple of 300 mile road trips. I'd like another 200+ HP or so, as the car does run out of power before I'd like, but I couldn't afford the Shelby GT 500. I rarely get to drive it that hard, so it's a mild criticism.


Best Features

Bullitt package extras well worth it. Front seats are spot on for a 6'/200 lb. guy. Engine and shifter just beg you to drive it hard. My two kids fit in the back seats. Ipod jack in the console is nice. Sound great. Understated styling works for a 40 year old.


Worst Features

The two cupholders in the center console are a joke. If you actually put a drink in them, it blocks the shifter. Needs a telescopic steering wheel. The car arrived from the factory with a malfunctioning stereo and an annoying squeak from somewhere in the back when driving over bumpy roads.

2008 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This car is an absolute blast to drive. Who ever said American car companies don't build cars people want? I will line up any Toyota, Honda, Nissan, etc. against this baby. For the price it can't be beat. First off the torque is unbelievable. HP is immediately available. No need to wind this baby up. You won't want to play the excellent 500 watt Shaker stereo radio as the exhaust note is the best sound you will ever hear. I test drove 20 different cars but when I got in this one I knew I was going to have to purchase it. Very easy to have fun driving around town and you will get 17-24 mpg on 87 octane. Fill the tank with 91 octane and hold onto your seat.


Best Features

Favorite feature is the awesome torque and HP of this free breathing engine. The exhaust note is just right. Not to loud but powerful enough to say it means business.


Worst Features

It would have been nice if the console between the seats was a little more useable but I guess that is the price you pay to drive a sweet machine like this one.

2008 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I love to drive this car. It's my first muscle car (after owning 335 horsepower Audi A8, 231 horsepower VW Touareg and 400 horsepower BMW 7 series) and I have to say that I'm really impressed. I knew not to expect much from the interior (comparing to the German cars I've owned), but I never expected the car to be so fun, so fast and so...drivable.


Best Features

Acceleration and handling (but only with the performance kit - suspensions and TCS, and manual transmission), engine and exhaust rumble, shaker 1000 blast.


Worst Features

Brakes, a big low, sunroof, audio controls on the wheel, better use of space on the central console

Review

I am 19 years old and own my dream car. Evertime I look at it in the parking lot I think what a cool car, then realize it's mine. Magazines complain about the handling, but the stock tires are rock hard since Ford expects people to actually drive the car unlike other manufacturers (this means they last longer). For the price you simply can't beat the performance you get back in return. As far as the interior, I think the design is brilliant and very clean looking, but most peoples complaints are the materials being on the harder side. Even though Ford sells 130K of these a year, people still smile and wave when you drive by.


Best Features

18" wheels. Stock exhaust reminds you what you're driving.


Worst Features
