great performance and looks

Cons

Ford concurs that the battery will not hold a charge more than 2 days because it's so "intelligent.

Beware Of The '09 Mustang Gt — I've had my '09 Mustang GT for 2 months now. After not driving it for 2 days, my battery was dead. The dealer service dept. told me that it has a lot of "modules" and is an "intelligent' car, so it has to be started and left running for 30 minutes at least every other day or the battery will die. I thought this was absurd and wrote Ford customer service...also called them after they wrote back saying they concur with the dealer. Beware, if this is trueand you travel, leaving your car st the airport foe 3-4 days, you will have a dead battery. I still think it's absurd, but Ford will not help. I had to get a jump start from my cleaning lady's "not so intelligent" 18 year car. No wonder the American auto industry is in trouble.

Great Car, Few Complaints. — I love my Mustang GT. Appearance is great. Ford really hit it out of the park with the retro styling. It still gets looks wherever Ii go. So far build quality is very good. I did have a small problem with the retractable screen on my Glass roof but it was quickly fixed by the dealership. Performance is great, Nice and fast 150 before the limiter kicks in. My only complaint is that it isn't so hot in the turns. Independent rear suspension would make this a far better handling car. Interior Comfort is excellent. I recently drove it on a 3500 mile trip and was comfortable all the way. The seats are supportive and well padded. The drive position is easily adjustable to one suitable for a long trip. The cost of ownership is not bad overall. I had to put a new set of rear tires on it after 8 months but we won't talk about why i needed to do that. ;-)

Super Car - Easy To Mod And Make Faster. — Great car. Read finals reviews that really says it all about the car. Could be lighter and have better mpg but overall great car and easy to modify. A lot of mustang specific shops to provide specialized information on the car.

My 2009 Mustang Gt — It's hard to find fault with a car this freaking awesome. It looks great in Dark Candy Apple Red paint. The charcoal leather interior is comfortable and looks good. The 500watt Shaker sound system is loud and clear! Coming from driving Tauruss (Tauri?) for the last 11 years it's QUITE a nice change :-) **Update: After 3 years and nearly 50,000 miles, I love it even more!! Also, since I bought it for $6,500 under sticker, it has only lost ~$4k in value!! This car has been sooooo reliable and now I can't wait to get some summer performance rubber on it soon :-)

Pros

Loved the top down rides. Very little wind buffeting. Great ride comfort and power. I really like the looks of the car with the throw back to the original Mustangs from the 60's.

Cons

The car did develop a couple minor rattles in the interior

Super Fun !!! — 2009 Mustang California Special GT... The car was quite affordable and the features for the cost were outstanding. Little things like the changeable color interior ambient lighting, and the cluster that also could change the lighting color were nice differentiators... The power of the 4.6L 300HP V8 was great. This car was an automatic transmission. This car lacked all the new connected Multimedia; No Bluetooth, USB, etc. It was the last year without this and a major reason I sold the car. The only thing I did not like was the under hood packaging. It was functional, but looked bad with all the exposed wiring/hoses/etc... I would have kept the car if I had room for one more. All in all I Loved it...

Pros

This car can really run, i havent had any maintenace issues only thing I've had to change was the oil and windshield fluid

Cons

These cars are not good in cold weather and you have to let the engine warm up before driving, it's the purpose of it being a muscle car

Hate To See Her Go But Im Deploying Soon — I love the way this car sound, the exhaust is loud and people tell me they can here me from a distance especially when i step on it. The overdrive adds more power once you press the button but of course the engine will drink more gas. I drove a few of mustangs before but this one was very impressive and thats why I got it. It has Ford racing air intake and slp exhaust system so you have about 25-30 extra horses. I was planning to do some major upgrades this summer but I'm deploying soon so i guest not.

Fast And Fun — never had any problems with the vehicle itself and always came threw when i took long trips and always fun to drive on long straightaways. the look was always nice with being silver and cops didn't bother me because they're profiling the black ones so always a plus. car was always kept in pristine condition and all maintenance done threw the ford dealership and all tire and wheels done threw Americas tires so everything is ensured encase of any problems.

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

Best Bang For Your Buck. — Compared to some high performance cars the ride can be rough due to a solid rear axle, but that's worth looking past due to the sweetness of that 300hp 4.6 v8. I love its power, love its sound, and is very reliable. The transmission has a very positive feel. You know for sure every time you've shifted into another gear due to its firm and tight feel. Even though the handling could be better, it is easy to control in high performance situation if you have some experience driving. One of the main reason I went with a new Mustang was how many and how cheap performance upgrades are. All in all, your not going to get a better performing car in its class for the price.

Seriously, It's Mine — it's awsome, first mustang and love it. It's a 45th anniversary edition and I had to rush to buy before the uglier 2010 model hit the showrooms, JUST managed to get the last black one with a Parchment interior, sure it ain't got BMW luxury but it's raw and more fun.
