2009 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
I can't believe a car that is this much fun to drive can be bought for this price. Plenty of power, great exhaust note (compare it to the weak sound of a 380Z), comfortable GT500 seats, aggressive exterior styling, and with amenities like the super smooth Tremec 5 speed, the light touch hydraulic clutch, and the 500 watt Shaker stereo this car is a dream. No wonder Ford is not looking for Govt. bailout money like GM and Chrysler.
Gobs of HP and Torque. Exhaust sound blows away other cars. Handling is nimble and tight. The brakes are out of this world. Multi-colored dash gauges are a nice touch. GT500 seats are great. Imagine being able to use 87 or 91 Octane and still be able to draw 315 HP/330 ft-lbs. of torque.
The center console could be more usable for small items. Better inside lighting at night. The long doors are hard to get used to in parking spots and tight garages.
