Awesome, Sweet, Love This Car! — It gets the looks and comments wherever I go. Literally, I can't go out for one day in our small city and not get some comment about how the car looks, what a great color it is, etc. One day a group of school boys, waiting for the light to change so they could cross the street, caught sight of this Mustang and simultaneously dropped to their knees with arms outstretched bowing in "worship". Too funny!

Love the looks, comfort and ride. This is the first Mustang V6 MotorTrend calls a musclecar.
They're correct!

Cons

Not for big families. Back seat leg room is compromised.

My Wife Loves It — Who cares what the back seats are like, I'm never going to sit in them. Could do with a better shifter but the power is over the top as is the comfort and handling. Excellent for long long drives, just eats up the miles and you arrive relaxed.

To Call This Car Awesome Is Not An Exaggeration! — This car has performance specs similar to sports cars costing 3 to 4 times more. The rumble made by the extra pipes coming out the side greatly enhance the audible experience. I have had many sports cars and this is easily my favorite of all time.

OMG.  The most incredible vehicle ever made.  The faster, the better it sticks to the road.  One mean sounding SOB.

Cons

Can't find a one.

Superb, Incredible Vehicle! — A must to drive. Nothing handles like a Boss 302 Laguna Seca. I own a Kona Blue Boss 302 and it drives just as well. Love them country, winding roads. Definitely a head turner with a sweet, sweet rumble that talks to you,

Very Fun Car To Drive — I've enjoyed having this car very much. There are tons of cool after market mods you can buy for this car. I installed just about every mod available with the exception of adding a turbo charger. This year reminds me a lot of the 67 - 69 model.

Pros

This car is easy to handle and fun to drive

Cons

I should have bought a V8. I spent over $10,000 in modifications to get my car to look, sound and handle the way it does.

Awesome Car! — This is an awesome car to drive. It looks awesome and runs great! I spend about 4 hours a month cleaning and hand buffing my car to get an awesome mirror like shine. The only modification that I have not put on this car is a turbo. This is the baddest V6 mustang I have ever driven!

I love this car! Looks good, drives good, handles good. Comfortable once you get inside.
Coyote engine WHOA!

Do not have any cons other than the leg room in the back seats but it's a sports car not a family car LOL.

Great Car! Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — I love the way this car handles. After installing the Barton shifter from American Muscle I love the way it drives and when the tune is changed I love to hear it running idle. This car is awesome and has GREAT power which comes from the nice Coyote V8

Awesome Car!! — I really enjoy this car. It runs smooth and handles the road well. The only complaint I have is during winter, but my car still runs alright. This is my only car so I have to drive in the snow and it did very well.
