2010 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
The 2010 Mustang GT Premium is every bit a high quality muscle car that I expected it to be. What it didn't expect is it has also been our favorite car to take trips across the country. This car rides very comfortably and after hours on the road my back and legs are still fresh and not sore at all. The exhaust sound is a muffled roar on the inside which I like because it's not too loud, but at the same time it's rather loud if you standing near it while it drives by. I like this too because others instantly know it's a muscle car but I don't have to shout to talk to passengers. This car runs very smooth and has never given us any issues in 54,000 miles. The 5-speed manual is lots of fun and the only thing that's not perfect on this car as sometimes the shifter will get a little sticky between 2nd and 3rd gear. Other than that excellent car all around. By the way I get 24.5 MPG on long highway trips.
Traded in our family car (2015 hyundai sonata) for 2ea mustangs with this being one.
Let me say first off the v6 with the 4.0 and a 5-speed is one of the most solid setups these guys put together and it doesn't disappoint. Has great power and all but keeps up with my wife 2014 with the v6 which is supposedly updated and has about 100hp on mine... hmmm lol
Interior quality is lacking with hard plastic everywhere but it is a base model and this was bought with long range reliability in mind... and plastic won't rip or fade like leather haha.
Seats are sufficient and almost exactly what I remember in my father's setup. Front passengers German priority and the back has extremely limited room with smaller seats... adequate for 1 person to stretch across both sides lol.
Where this car shines is the exterior and performance. The outside of this car is beautiful in the super red and has more than enough giddy up to have a little fun. Turn of traction control and it gets even better without blowing through tires in the v8.
Overall they did a great job with this... Base model is really set up for the pure enthusiast that doesn't need/want many bells and whistles that over time will fail... and everything that could be improved upon has in new models... amazing job on this one ford.
