2008 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


If you want a mean sounding, torque pounding, rumbling V8 with a 5 speed (like I did), with modern day comfort, the Mustang GT is it. Leather seats are comfortable. I installed 3.73 gears, lowered the car 1.5 inches with Ford racing springs and added the FRPP GTA axleback mufflers that come on the Bullitt Mustang. The car is set up the way it should be and with the mods, still under $26K. The GT is raw and the ride is a little on the rough side but it's so much fine to drive. Gas mileage for me is around 20 overall. If you want quiet and refined look elsewhere. If you want a solid fun RWD V8 at a great price with unlimited aftermarket support, get the GT. No regrets at all!

Best Features

RWD, V8 sound, torque, power, aftermarket, comfortable leather seats

Worst Features

My only gripe is that many of the 5 speeds have a 2nd-3rd gear grind when the car is cold (overnight). There is a recall for this. For now I go to neutral then 3rd the first 2 or 3 times. And anything in the cupholders gets in the way of shifting.
