Not Bad, Not Great Either
By GTMan on


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


Lifelong owner of sport sedans from Far East or Europe. Living out a childhood vision of owning a sports car with a great American V8. Car is engineered around the powerful engine, not much else. Unlike products from other domestic makers, the understated styling and lack of cheezy exterior add-on is quite appealing. Obviously, this is a recreational vehicle, so it does not dissappoint, great engine sound, accelaration is pretty linear, and suspension is a good compromise. Not meant to make social statement, so no complaints about ~15 to 24 mpg. Overall, not a perfect car, and not for everyone, but just a fun personal toy to have in your garage.

Best Features

Nice sounding engine, stereo system power and related features, trunk space that can hold 2 golf bags, understated retro styling, durable leather, 18 in wheels, seat warmers.

Worst Features

Retro taken too far - HVAC knobs from 80's, antenna, cheap one-piece side mirrors. Only 300 horses from 4.6 litre? Dashboard rattling. Wheels should fill wheel well. Improve rear wing. Bigger tire size, 19's with 275 mm in the rear. Anemic A/C. Cars costing $10K less has better dashboard.
