Great car but squeaks and groans
By David on


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


For the money this has to be the best performance car available today. This is my second Mustang and when it comes to performance it really screams while delivering great fuel mileage from regular gas. It handles very good and actually is very comfortable on long trips. It does have a fault however. The gearshift lever vibrates and resonates when accelerating which takes away from the otherwise pleasant experience. It also has periodic squeaks and rattles from the front that just can not be found. Drives me crazy and the dealer can not find or even agree that the sounds exist. Ford needs to fix this, my 88 Mustang had none of this noise and it was on a worse platform?

Best Features

Performance and gas mileage are beyond expectations. She runs at 5 seconds to 60 and returns over 22 MPG for all around driving, up to 28 on the hwy.

Worst Features

Better interior quality. Fix the resonance rattles and squeaks and isolate the gear shift better so it does not rattle when under load.
