2006 Ford Mustang Review
Don_Blue says:
Cheap to insure, cheap to fill up, decent fuel economy and decent performance many upgrades available and a very recognized car all over. Fun and dose not break the bank. Very reliable and even averaged over 19 miles per gallon in the city. All around great car and summer toy. Go for GT if power is needed.

2006 Ford Mustang Review
RickyLouie says:
Overall if you wanna have fun you drive something like this. With my experience currently owning one as a daily driver its probably even a little much for that. Both peppy and pretty its both a conversation piece and fantastic ride. Do I regret getting it? Absolutely not, this car is by far the most fun and attractive car Ive owned, as a 22 year old bachelor we make a perfect pair. Love this car.

Back Seats Ranked 1996 Cadillac Eldorado better.
"The vehicle is a lot larger interior wise than the mustang and therefore had the capability to spend a little time on the passengers instead of focusing mostly on the driver and engine."
Would Buy Ranked 1996 Cadillac Eldorado worse.
"Honestly being the two polar cars that they are their both coupes, and if taken car of are both very attractive. I would take the Mustang over the Eldorado simply based on the fact that the construction of the Mustang is light-years simpler than the Eldorado. That being said, the Eldorado is luxury based vs the Mustangs performance based construction which to me spells reliability. The Mustang wins for being a sturdy, fun, and reliable rider even if the comfort takes a hit to make it so."

Very Reliable And Fun Car — This is one of the greatest sports cars produced in USA. The GT mustang with 4.6l v8 is very fast off the start and has plenty of room to go on the top end. Aftermarket exhaust makes this car sound great. I have no complaints. Would purchase 5 more of these cars. Nice cars!

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

Pros: The GT mustang is very fast and a joy to ride. Takes corners like a pro, and accelerates fast!

Cons: It's a sports car, so it's smaller on the inside. The trunk is pretty good size with plenty of room to store luggage for 2.

Great Sexy Car — Enjoy the ride and excitement behind the wheel. Car handles very well and is fun to drive. It has great acceleration! Gas mileage is good too! Love the roomy trunk for transporting items. Back seats fold down also! Love it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the color!   Seats are comfortable.  Body style is awesome

Cons: It does have blind spots, especally if your short.  Rear wheel drive no so good in the ice.

I Love It — Was my first car fel, in love at first sight. I really want to make it a powerful grand tourer and I'm even gonna bag it eventually. Not your typical horsepower hungry mustang more of a cruiser and looker in my opinion.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great good on gas and is quick

Cons: Doesn't have independent rear axel not low enough cheap interior

Great First Mustang — When i bought this car i was looking for something affordable yet fun. I had just sold an H2 so gas mileage was a factor as well. After searching the market I was not happy with what I found for the $12-14 price range until I found this mustang. All in all it has a little bit of everything; the sporty mustang look, decent highway fuel efficiency, and is easy on the wallet.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage for a V6 and very affordable

Cons: Not as much horsepower as one would like in a Mustahng

Very Nice Mustang Gt — Everything is nice about this car. The only draw back is a v8 engine likes gas. This is a very sharp car with a nearly perfect interior that looks like it rolled off the factory floor. The outside is in fine shape also.

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

Pros: Fast car

Cons: Gas mileage is not great.  I also own a Porsche Boxster, which is not as fast, but get a bit better gas mileage

Head Turner — Overall with a couple appearance mods this car looks fantastic! The ride is very comfortable for the most part, but starts to feel a little stiff if you drive anywhere long distance (3+ hours). I use it as a daily driver and for fun on the weekends and if I'm driving nice I can get about 22 city and 28-30 highway using regular gas. There is little road noise but it is noticeable if the inside of the cabin is quiet. The acceleration is what you would expect from a V6 sports car, my dads 2007 impala can match it. The handling and braking however are steps above most cars, and I always felt very in control no matter what speed I was driving. Meitenance cost for me was low because I know what I'm doing and just do it myself, I could see it getting expensive if you hire everything out though. Overall it's a blast to own and drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking car, handles very well, and if driven right gets great gas mileage for a sports car!

Cons: The power is a bit disappointing (to be expected, it's only a V6), and the seats start to feel kinda hard if you're going anywhere long distance.

Great Looking Car That Is Fun To Drive And Own — The car was built by Shelby to give a better than average acceleration, braking and handling. It met and exceeded my expectations. The car is very safe and a lot of fun to drive and a great show car that always gets thumbs up.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car looks great. The ride is firm as it was built by Shelby for Hertz as a "rent a racer" anniversary special edition car for rent

Cons: For folks that enjoy sports car this is the one. It does not bill itself as a plush riding Caddy.
