2008 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
Purchased this 2008 Bullitt in January 2009 at Ford employee pricing plus $2000 rebate. The exhaust note on this car is incredible- every time I start it I feel like an 8 year old who just stole the keys to the Batmobile. Edmund's review of this car lauds the shifter, they weren't kidding- incredibly smooth. Fantastic seats, great appearance. Fuel economy is poor in town given the low gearing but I've averaged 25+ at steady 75 mph on the highway.
Powertrain. Sleeper appearance. Folding rear seats passes the bicycle test w/ rear wheel removed (the new Camero doesn't).
Given the nature of this car and its cost it's hard to really complain. Some of the subframe workmanship is rough though.
