Sports Feel At An Affordable Price — Basic car with all the essentials features..made strictly for 2 persons..pick up is good..powerful..very stable at high speeds..Visibility on the roads is good..seating position is low so may be a little difficult for short height person..have driven 400 miles continuosly once and my mustang did not let me down..

Fun, Reliable And Dependable Car — I never had any major mechanical issues, the paint is starting to chip and scratch. the transmission and engine are phenomenal i have driven this car hard for many miles high revs and it always gave great response when you touch the throttle, never a transmission slip or loss of power. This engine is indestructible.

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...

So Much Fun To Drive It'll Make Your Arm Hair Stand Up! — The only thing I do not like on this vehicle is the comfort of the seatbelts. If you a re a muscle car lover this car does not disappoint you. The red leather interior is captivating and the smooth 5 speed Hurst installed manual shifter is very cool.

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.

Gas Mileage. Dyno tuned im getting 18+ city and 30+ hwy. For better mileage and bang for the buck go SRT4!

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.

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. ;-)

Pros

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.

427r Roush Premium Roushcharged Stage 3 — First.. Do not buy a car like this to drive.. It's a great garage queen, but it is FAR from a good daily car. Things that went wrong: 1. Supercharger was dry, no oil added to it from new. 2. Leaked oil 3. Burned oil (since new) 4. 9mpg/15MPG 5. Clutch pedal broke off mount 6. Gauges squeaked 7. hood latch does not always catch hood correct 8. Fog light bezels melt with aftermarket non ford bulbs 9. Dealers suck (never anything they can fix) 10. Power seats didn't work 11. Cruise control broke 12. Shifter linkage broke 13. Traction Control pointless.. Things that went right: 1. It will get you laid 2. It will run 12's all day long on street tires and walk your neighbors older corvette 3. It looks like a 60's mustang 4. The noise it makes is intoxicating 5. It will burn rubber in all 5 gears 6. 0-60 is around 4.2 seconds (used ECU Tool) 7. The look on the guy's face in the Porsche when you roast him almost makes it worth the issues.. The list can actually go on.. But you get the point..
