Pros

The GT mustang is very fast and a joy to ride. Takes corners like a pro, and accelerates fast!

Cons

It's a sports car, so it's smaller on the inside. The trunk is pretty good size with plenty of room to store luggage for 2.

Very Reliable And Fun Car — This is one of the greatest sports cars produced in USA. The GT mustang with 4.6l v8 is very fast off the start and has plenty of room to go on the top end. Aftermarket exhaust makes this car sound great. I have no complaints. Would purchase 5 more of these cars. Nice cars!

I Love It — Was my first car fel, in love at first sight. I really want to make it a powerful grand tourer and I'm even gonna bag it eventually. Not your typical horsepower hungry mustang more of a cruiser and looker in my opinion.

Great First Mustang — When i bought this car i was looking for something affordable yet fun. I had just sold an H2 so gas mileage was a factor as well. After searching the market I was not happy with what I found for the $12-14 price range until I found this mustang. All in all it has a little bit of everything; the sporty mustang look, decent highway fuel efficiency, and is easy on the wallet.

Very Nice Mustang Gt — Everything is nice about this car. The only draw back is a v8 engine likes gas. This is a very sharp car with a nearly perfect interior that looks like it rolled off the factory floor. The outside is in fine shape also.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great looking car, handles very well, and if driven right gets great gas mileage for a sports car!

Cons

The power is a bit disappointing (to be expected, it's only a V6), and the seats start to feel kinda hard if you're going anywhere long distance.

Head Turner — Overall with a couple appearance mods this car looks fantastic! The ride is very comfortable for the most part, but starts to feel a little stiff if you drive anywhere long distance (3+ hours). I use it as a daily driver and for fun on the weekends and if I'm driving nice I can get about 22 city and 28-30 highway using regular gas. There is little road noise but it is noticeable if the inside of the cabin is quiet. The acceleration is what you would expect from a V6 sports car, my dads 2007 impala can match it. The handling and braking however are steps above most cars, and I always felt very in control no matter what speed I was driving. Meitenance cost for me was low because I know what I'm doing and just do it myself, I could see it getting expensive if you hire everything out though. Overall it's a blast to own and drive!

Pros

The car looks great. The ride is firm as it was built by Shelby for Hertz as a "rent a racer" anniversary special edition car for rent

Cons

For folks that enjoy sports car this is the one. It does not bill itself as a plush riding Caddy.

Great Looking Car That Is Fun To Drive And Own — The car was built by Shelby to give a better than average acceleration, braking and handling. It met and exceeded my expectations. The car is very safe and a lot of fun to drive and a great show car that always gets thumbs up.

It's a mustang. The classic retro style coupled with a powerful v8 cannot be matched

Gas mileage, uncomfortable for long trips

Classic Muscle Car Looks And Performance — The Mustang GT's classic muscle car looks and supreme powerful performance quickly outweigh any of the cons. The car is a thrill for drivers of all age, old and young. The car has surprisingly good gas mileage IF you can control your lead foot, and this car begs you to have a lead foot. Any fuel mileage woes are quickly corrected as soon as you get the common "Hey, nice car" in the parking lots.
