Good For Bachelor Or Bachelorette With No Kids. — Fun daily driver, good in the corners, loves freeway speeds, easy driver, good visibility, good ride comfort, very controllable, seats are wonderful. Not very fast off the line, gets a little squirrely when wet, not much room for more than two grown ups. Overall a great car.

Fun To Drive — I was looking for a sportier car, I couldn't see out of the new Camaros, and the new Challengers were to heavy, I settled for the Mustang. The car was great fun, sounded great, and was quick enough. I learned a lot about working on cars from the aftermarket community and making a few modifications.

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.

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.

Cons

Where to start

TheManInDboX

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..

Nice Looking Fast Chip Foose Edition Mustang — Great car. Fun to Drive. Very Clean. Still has warranty. Nice looking 20" foose rims. 5 speed manual shifts like a dream. The exhuast sounds just like a 60's Hot Rod car. with a great rumble. The shaker hood is awsume.

powerful, great pick up, sexy.

Sound Of The Car. — I dislike the exhaust that is stock on the car, it really muffles the sound of the car, but throwing on an after market modification will intensify the sound, and it'll sound as powerful as it looks. its a gorgeous car and definitely holds to value of American Muscle.
