Fun, well made and economical

2008 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
This is a fun car to drive. It is well made and has much trunk space too. Most of all it is very economical for a 300hp V8. I am averaging 27 to 29 mpg at average speed of 62-65. If you want to burn the gas tromp on it and it will run and still get 22 to 23mpg. The manual works well, some mechanical noise from 1st to 2nd gear though. One rattle in the dash on right in right hand turns. Bought it $500 over cost and then deducted the Loyalty rebate of $2000 and the additional incentive of $2000 and it is practically a steal! MSRP was $31,430 and out the door for $25,330.
Body style and seats. Sound system, steering, acceleration. Fuel economy big time, and build quaity. Solid structure mostly and the big trunk with folding rear seats is a bonus. Many aftermarket goodies available too. Very good meats on the wheels too, the BF Goodrich tires are fab.
A temperature display. Put some insulation in this ride, although it would add to the bottom line. Turn up the stereo it is a good one anyway!
