2005 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Bought with 7k miles, now at 26k, no major problems, just the same tail lamp keeps burning out. All-city driving yields terrible gas mileage, but cruising on hwy at 70mph, I get 28mpg easy. Installed AirAid conical air filter which made huge difference in throttle response, power and exhaust note. In 2nd gear at 3000 rpm, watch out! Very fast. Full-size luggage can fit in trunk, something most convertibles can't boast. Stereo is amazingly powerful, even on hwy w/roof down. Brakes could be better. Bumpy roads reveal rattles and looseness mainly in windows & roof. But for combo of V8 power, stick-shift control, topless motoring, mega- style and storage space, there's no competition at all.

Best Features

Power, styling, Shaker 500 sound, vast aftermarket

Worst Features

Stereo head unit very buggy w/downright stupid programming. Steering wheel lacks support at 2 and 10 o'clock positions.
