Ford recaptures a classic
By someothersteve on
2012 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I purchased this car in early June as primarily a commuter car that could double as a fun car for the weekends. I haven't been disappointed. The V6 Mustang Premium automatic is a very comfortable car. You can drive it for performance or economy. In my commute I usually get 28-31 MPG. If I turn on the AC or hit the gas hard, mileage will drop to the mid 20s. Ergonomics are good. I have no issues reaching any controls from the driverís seat. The car has some nice touches, too, like rear seat headrests that fold down to improve visibility. For the wrench turners, you can get to all parts of the engine without busting a knuckle. It makes up for the missing spare tire and slow downshifts.
Favorite things include
- Fun to drive factor
- Designed for the wrench-turning car nut
- Classic styling
- Have a locking gas cap or internal release for the hatch that covers the opening. Gas is not getting cheaper.
- Optional spare tire. I know Ford was trying for weight savings, but thatís ridiculous.
- Quicker downshifts in the automatic transmission
