2008 Ford Mustang Convertible V6 Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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.

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


Review

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.

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


Review

Bought first week in 2009. Been a great toy car. Never had any serious problems. When back to the dealer for a loose driver's mirror and a buzzing noise in the transmission (which I fixed myself, a loose trans inspection plate). Some performance and handling mods have been done, but it's basically all stock.


Best Features

The exhaust note is awesome. The 5sp. manual's pull with the 3:73 gears. The understated looks.


Worst Features

Ford has already addressed them all.

2008 Ford Mustang Convertible V6 Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've always wondered how people come to hate a car company, Ford usually being top of the list of most hated. Now I know. First there's a problem with the pedal assembly that prevented the driver from being able to depress the clutch properly and shift the transmission. "Car is out of warranty (by 1,000 miles and a few months) it's going to cost $xxx" More recently the interior is literally falling apart, the pleather insert on the door panels is peeling off. "Car has 38k miles, nothing we can do, outside of the warranty, it'll cost $xxx" Even called Ford's customer service line, same response. We'll be selling this as we don't want to be on the hook for even bigger, costlier problems later.


Best Features

It used to be that it's a Ford, an American company. Now I'll look for imports built in the U.S.

Review

This car is a great value and Ford did a wonderful job merging classic design into a modern world.
I get around 20mpg (18 if I rod around) in the city and up to 26 on the hwy.
I think that the dark blue version is the best color and while my car has a grey interior and black top, I think that the best color combo is the dk blue with tan interior/top.
Nevertheless, I get comments on my car all the time - this car is great for meeting people!!
LOL!!
I upgraded the lousy tires that Ford ships with the car - I went from being able to take a 45 mph corner at 55 to 80++!!
If you test one and question it's performance I would suggest checking on the tires . . .


Best Features

Without question the Shaker 500 stereo is my most favorite feature - it truly is Awesome! It sounds great and blows away anyone who hears it. I can't believe that there is a more powerful version!! Something else I was impressed with was when we had a snow storm in Portland that shut the city down I found out that I could easily get around in my Mustang. I drove past SUVs that had slid into the ditch and could go up hill without a problem - in a Mustang!! The car is so well balanced that I could go anywhere without worry in a car that I figured I would have to park.


Worst Features

Okay, so the reason I'm writing is because I think the electronic nanny (also know as traction control) is dangerous. While it is impressive when it is slick, it is SCARY when it is dry. In the Portland metro area we have plenty of 45mph roads that you may need to pull onto. You can't just ease onto these roads - especially in rush hour! So, when you step on the gas and expect to pull into traffic and the electronic nanny cuts the power it can be a terrifying experience!! I shut it off every time I get in the car. It should be something that defaults to OFF - I HATE that you have to turn it off instead of having to turn it on. This is a major safety flaw that I hope is corrected.
