2005 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


After a woefully disappointing
experience owning a 2000 Focus, I
purchased a 2002 Celica. It was
everything a Toyota should be. It was
reliable, great handling, uncomfortable
and loud (road noise). I had no problems
with it other than my aching back. On a
whim, I test drove the Mustang,
expecting it to be a piece of crap. I
was caught off guard. It drove better
than any car I had ever driven. The v6
was extremely powerful, and the 5 speed
automatic converted me from stick and I've
always hated automatics. After having
the car for just a week, I can't comment
on reliability with authority, however,
by the 1 week point I already had beefs
with the Focus. I hear no noises and the
car feels solid.

Best Features

The v6 is vastly improved over the v6 in the 2002 Mustang that I test drove. It's smooth and powerful. As a bonus,the new 6 REALLY sounds like a v8.

Worst Features

The availability of stick shift v6's is very limited. One of those would probably be a riot to drive. The only ones I could find in my area were Deluxe (stripped) models in non-metallic colors.
