2006 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


I am a Ford/Lincoln Mercury Tech for 38 years. I have owned three Lincoln Mercury MK-VIII 's and compared to this Mustang, Ford missed the mark . The handling is not near as good compared to the MK-VIII. I have taken curves on a every day basis at high speeds and the Mustang will feel loose in the rear end. This is due to the live axle. The Mustang is a fun car and quick, but would have better handling with an independent suspension. But all in all this is a very fun car to drive for a 58 year old young man. Note - the Mustang will pass just about everything except a GAS STATION.

Best Features

Exterior design, low wind noise with top up/down at speed, able to keep conversation with top down. Great!

Worst Features

Understand why live rear axle , but next time independent suspension? If you can over come high torque issues.
