Toy — Great looking sports car with adequate power and handling. Reliability and performance for the money is tops in the field. New styling more like the older models, leaner and lower profile. With a few moderate add on's, performance can be greatly increased.

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

2008 Custom Gt — This car is very fun to drive, the brakes work well and the car handles nice around curves, however it could use a little upgreading of the suspension. the car has a nice sound to it when you hit the gas.

Fast, great acceleration, looks amazing and fun to drive.

Not so great on gas, not much room for passengers in the back, minimal trunk space.

Sporty Whip That Loves To Be Seen — This car is a head-turner! Fun to drive and looks amazing. However, if a long commute is on your plate, this is not the car for you. The gas mileage leaves something to be desired - but you're not likely buying a Mustang if you're worried about mpg.

Its a Mustang, enough said.

Cons

Space. It has no practicality other than getting someone from Point A to Point B.

Dream Car. — I've owned this car for at least 4 years and every time I drive it, I remember being in high school and waiting to be able to say I own one. Haven't had a single problem with it other than normal wear and tear. I love every bit of aside from the cargo/space issue.

Pros

Very deep rumbling exhaust note, like new paint, sunroof and saleen rear deck lid that compliments the fish tail spoiler

Cons

5 speed rather a 6 speed. The 4.6 L rather than the 5.0 L

The Stang — Overall, it is an amazing car to drive and feels awesome with the roar of the V8. Definitely a car that will turn heads with the H.I.D kits in the headlight and tail lights. The Cervinis hood gives it a very mean look.

Pros

One of the most dependable cars we've ever owned.  Nice features for a mid-priced car.  The Pony Package gave the car that little extra boost of awesome for the V6:) Nicely appointed. Plenty of room in trunk even with top down.

Cons

Backseat was definitely functional, but it was cramped.  Had a design flaw that caused buckling on the gear shift knob.  I'm assuming this was due to heat during the summer.  It was a bit irritating since it was directly on top of the shifter.

Love The Mustang! — "Babycakes" did everything we hoped she would for our daughter's time through college. She was super dependable and was able to maintain her overall appearance even though she was parked outside the majority of time for a 4 year period. We took her for regular maintenance checkup and had her fully detailed every 6 months. We had to have the door panels reattached and we had the driver's seat re-dyed due to wear. Other than that, she was a dream!

Stylish Car Gets Looks — The convertible was so much fun. I took this on a few day trips, and with top down, it was just freedom! So much fun. Sits low to the ground so it was difficult to get in and out of, but once your in this car, you're not going to want to get out. Fun, fun, fun, driver.

Ultimate Sleeper — I love the simple, unassuming look of this car....it is incredibly fast, but doesn't look it, yet somehow, it DOES look fast in its own way.....this isn't a family car, it has all the power you could ever want but doesn't scream "hey, look at me!!!"

Pros

Easy car to drive, enough power to get you through traffic, fairly comfortable.

Cons

A mustang with only 220hp, while other v6's of the same time had close to 250 to 275 hp.  Not much room to put anything.

Love It — It is a two door sports car. Don't expect a family hauler with the back seats. Trunk is small and can't hold much. It is fun to drive and I get lots of compliments on it. Mustangs are easy to upgrade.

Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012
