    Affordable Musclecar. — fAST, BUT NOT FAST ENOUGH. I'm thinking of supercharging it. 425 hp with a Roush-charger from a current stock 300hp. Then you add the bodykit and some nice wide Shelby wheels and you have a SERIOUS toy! Kinda loose in the snow though. Not a winter-friendly car. That's wen I miss my Explorer!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast an Fun

    Cons: Not a 2010 Camaro or 2010 Challenger

    If You're Going To Get A Mustang, It Better Be A Shelby. Period. — It's cute a good first car for a 16 year old high school student who still has daddy pay for all the repairs. The fuel efficiency for this vehicle is a joke. It is basically a truck disguised as a car. Be prepared to fork out a lot of dough for silly repairs and gas, lots and lots of gas.

    Pros: It's a nice retro throwback.

    Cons: It's a FORD. Found On Road Dead.

    I Love It. After A Few Small Modifications It's Pretty Quick, And Turns Heads In A Good Way — It's not too fast from the factory, but with a little computer tuning and a new intake it really woke up. The handling is decent but not great, at least on the roads around Chicago. The brakes are decent but fade badly at speed. Also braking in wet weather is kinda scary. Strangely it is amazing in the snow, getting me to and from work during some of the worst snow storms we had. Overall the build quality is decent for an early production new model (built 2/05 and purchased 3/05) A few minor squeaks. It had some teething problems with the rear end making noise, it would cause most gas pumps to shut off prematurely. It is on battery #3 because they keep dying for some reason,The stereo sometimes blacks out, and the smart junction box shorted out. The car looks amazing on the outside, although i always thought the rear was a little akward. Inside is kinda cheap in apperance, especially for a $30k+ car. Lots of plastic, the center console is awful close to the driver and the storage cover sometimes pokes into my side. Also the parking brake lever is in a bad position, i would have liked to see it on the passenger side like earlier models. The lower dash sticks out a bit and hits my knees, especially on long drives where i want to move around slightly. Overall the car has been good with gas mileage, although it can only run on 92 octane or higher right now because of a more aggresive tune. The car is a blast to drive. It is set up slightly more aggresively than stock with a BBK cold air intake, SLP Loudmouth exaust (kind of a rip off) and a custom computer tune from Bob Kurgan. Without the custom tune it was running 13.7 while running a little lean. We have yet to run it with the new tune but the car feels much stronger already. It handles fine on the expressways in excess of 120mph, but above that it gets a little sketchy. I've driven it to Janesville, Detroit, and far southwestern Missouri, in addition to numerous trips to run at the track in Byron IL, and back. I LOVE taking it downtown, with the straight pipes and quick revving motor it easily drowns out traffic and echoes off the buildings like a monster. It's especially fun on lower Wacker drive, where it is downright frightening. Plus it can be so loud when it revs that we have scared a few nearby people, which is way more fun than most people will ever have

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

    Pros: It's pretty quick once you fix a few little things, gets decent mileage, and looks great

    Cons: Kinda sluggish for the price. Parts are expensive. The drive by wire system sucks, as does the TCS. The brakes are a little slushy and fade at higher speeds. And it can be a hand full in heavy rain

    Smokey Finder — Rental car for our vacation in Virginia Beach. I just had to drive the new Mustang when they first came out so I reserved one with Hertz at the Norfolk Airport. I was not disappointed with the drop dead looks of this car. We drove it across the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel to friends in Maryland. On the way we stopped at a small diner in a small town for lunch. A few minutes after we sat down some other customers came in and were talking about the cool Yellow 'stang out front. The car was a dream to drive. During the drive back to Virginia Beach the next day, everything was clicking the weather was great the road was wide open and the car beckoned to me. As I rounded a slight downhill turn to the right I noticed something odd in the middle of the highway. It was Smokey and he had his radar gun trained on the grill. Busted!!! He got me for doing 70 in a 55. Cost me $75. Bottom Line - Ford hit a homerun with this one - at least the sheetmetal. I hear they have been working over the years to improve the guts.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great looks, head turner

    Cons: Performance did not match the appearance, attracted the local constabulary.

    Great — absolutely love the performance and handling.I don't like the fact that it does not come with a jack or lug nut remover. Services do not cost an arm, leg, or house. I ave never had to take it to the dealer except for routine maintenance.

    Why I Love My Car — American Quality, love it or hate it, everyone knows curves are no good friends with the car, but drifting is a solution. except on an autobahn going 150mph, but I have to get it faster ;). What is great is the new air intake system, you can hear a big roar when accelerating. I know that it is show off, but it is such a great fun.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun fun fun drifts fun

    Cons: can only refuel my car to half

    Amazing — Car is amazingly fun to drive, Amazing performance and great looks. Build quality is excellent. Cost is a huge factor since it is basically the poor mans sports car. Always turns heads and is very easy to modify as the aftermarket parts market is readily availiable.
