Fun Toy — I love mustangs and will buy another one in the future. This is my second one I've owned and have noticed through the years that ford is making these with better and better handling and power. The 289 block also has been the base of a very reliable engine and comes capable to withstand high rpms.

Mustang — Love the car, purchased new in Dec 2004, traded a Tahoe for it. Love the styling so retro, takes ma back to when I was a kid. Easy to modify and personalize the Mustang to mirror your style!! I have plans to pass down to my daughter at 16.

Best Looking Mustang Since The 1967 Fastback — performance is good for a v6, fun to drive and unlimited customizing options. with this generation, Mustang is BACK!!! Ford hit the nail on the head with this model. most fun i have had driving since i was a teenager.

Great car to take out during the spring or summer where you can ride with the top down or drive it in parades

Plenty of room just not enough if you have a baby in car seat

The Perfect Summer Car For A Passionate Car Enthusiast — I loved everything about this car and while I see some people driving their ponies in the winter I couldn't imagine letting mine touch the salt covered roads. Perfect vehicle for the summertime and it really appeals to everyone's tastes

Outstanding Vehicle — Best bang for your buck. The v6 has plenty of power and the 5 speed is a blast to drive. I have driven cars with higher horsepower but for the price of a v6 you can't go wrong. Just loved this car.

Great Car To Drive — the only thing that ford should have done was dual the v-6 out. They could have put headers and maybe a clean air dam with working hood scoupes to match.I would liked to see a pony package on it too.

Pros

It's a muscle car.  What else do you need to know?

Cons

The gas tank has a faulty design that causes fuel pumps to detect it's full and stop fueling when it's not full.  Happens more in the cold months and on rainy, humid days.

The 05 Stang — I've had this car for going on 10 years now. It's a ton of fun to drive and an incredibly fast production car. Even though the speedometer only goes to 150, I can tell you it goes faster on a straight-away!

Good Value — Acceleration is excellent and car bakes and handles great. Fair gas mileage and maintenance and repair cost are low for this type on car. Tires are in good condition and all power options work perfectly. Alloy wheel are also in good condition.
