Awesome in Theory

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


The GT is an awesome design. IMO, it's the sexiest car on the road. It seems well built, very solid, and decently comfy. Interior layout could be more ergonomic, and needs a storage tray. Engine has lots of grunt, but the car seems too heavy to be truly fast. Still, plenty of fun to drive. However, while it's a cool ride, it seems very prone to manufacturer's defects in the drive train. Over the past 2 months, it's been in the shop for nearly 30 days, and both the transmission and rear end assembly have needed replacement. Car is entirely too new to have so many problems. I plan on sending the GT back, and I won't be getting another.

Best Features

Exterior design, torquey engine

Worst Features

Less-clunky shifter, usable cupholders, telescoping steering wheel, single DIN stereo to make room for storage tray, and most importantly a reliable drive train.
