2006 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Previous mustang owner (1980) and have had a serious stalking issue with this car since Ford introduced the '05 model. I don't care too much for the look of the 09-11 models, and recently found an '06 and bought it from the original owner. He drove it a lot (70k miles), but took good care of it and she looks sweet. So much fun to drive and decent gas mileage too.


Best Features

Leather seats, Shaker 500 system, 5- Speed Manual!, corners well, exhaust sound, Decent trunk size, Just an overall fun car to drive!


Worst Features

Telescoping Steering Wheel

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I drive a lot of miles, at least 150/day. I just had the water pump replaced at 166,000 miles and decided it was time to do the rest of the maintenance that I have neglected for the last 5 years. I changed the oil regularly with Mobil 1 and changed the brakes when necessary. Other than that everything has always worked perfectly. I replaced the spark plugs at 140,000 miles just because. The originals still looked good, just needed a gap adjustment.


Best Features

Looks great Plenty of Performance Really fun going the the S curves at full throttle (Thanks Traction Control) 6 CD/MP3 player


Worst Features

Looks like 2011 fixes them. Dual Exhaust and Cold Air Intake system is all I would add to the 2006.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Standard 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased this Horsey in memory of my dad, Max M. Kruger a design engineer and an original member of the Mustang design team under Lee Iaccoca at Ford. Compared to my 2 previous '73 Mach I joys, this Steed is more stealthy, has greater visibility and obviously more technologically refined. Had only one real issue with her. The trip meter occasionally zero's itself even after extensive dealer repairs and tech help from Ford. Yes a few rattles. Also needed a new battery due to Florida heat. Got a set of General Ulimax HP tires and they are the best I ever owned. I'm not sure which I like better, watching my wife drive off in her, me driving us, or just looking at her. Max Lives!


Best Features

Looks, Rides better than all previous Mustangs. Beautiful eclectic design taking most elements from 66'-68' era and blending with a more progressive and respectful styling. The V6 engine puts out more HP than the V8 289 and 302 CID engines of the late 60's & handles much better and stops on a dime.


Worst Features

Ford has addressed my hopeful improvements with a smaller, more powerful and fuel efficient V6. The 2011 also sports dual exhaust and a very cool front end and original 60's upward sloping quarter panel. I really enjoy the '05-'07 rear end and the rear spoiler on the '06 Fix all the rattles.

2006 Ford Mustang V6 Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Dash board rattles, dealer couldn't fix it, filed lemon law got $2000 from Ford. Brake pads & rotors went at 12,000 miles witch is unheard of, $600- $800 job. Replaced bat after 3 yrs which is norm. Replaced fuel filter which is recommended. Rear brake bulbs have been replaced about 4 times (easy to do yourself though) other then that nothing major has gone wrong. I drive 12,000 a year, some highway road trips and still drives great.


Best Features

The body and look. The handling, the pick up when you hit the gas on the highway. The nice black on black design. Radio sounds is pretty good. The new traction control (found on 2005 and up) it really kicks in when you need it. Sharp turn, wet/ slippery road.


Worst Features

Needs better cup holder placement, radio controls on wheel, lock gas door, gas/trunk release, dual exhaust. How can they put a dul on there fusion but not there v6 mustang? Just to set it apart from there v8. Since there is no other big difference. Bigger back seat an less trunk space. Brighter head lights
