2008 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 2dr Coupe (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my Mustang new with a manual transmission and the V6, the idea was for fun but not a gas guzzler and it paid off. Of all the coupes that were available that year this one was the best all around that I found. I can put two golf bags in the back or enough luggage for a road trip. It's really built for two but my son is fine in a front facing car seat in the back. I'm not racing it but like to punch the gas on occasion and it's had plenty of get up and go. The only major mechanical issue I have had was the diaphragm spring on the clutch pressure plate broke which was a manufacturing defect. With 117k miles on it I still feel like I could jump in and drive across the country and not worry about braking down.

Great auto hugely appreciated! Rides beautifully, problem free (none since its purchase in 2008), source of many inquiries such as to "when are you going to sell it," and remains the source of numerous complimentary comments.

My car has relatively low mileage for an '08 and a new top. It looks great on the street or parked. I have to be "good" on the road, or I get marked because the car looks like "trouble brewing". It can rumble in a purring way, or take off when the path is clear. Either way, it has always been fun to drive, especially with the top down. Only problem was the long wait to have the Takata airbag replaced. Ford should have been more supportive.
