Best car ever
"300 hp is just enough to have fun but not enough to wipeout. The car is super reliable and if driven properly can get a solid 17 average with mostly city driving. I love this car so much and I’m never selling it"

Obviously isn’t a family car but is very practical. I have helped friends move, I’ve fit bikes in the back with the rear seats folded down.

Most bang for your buck
"Have two currently, different years, knock on wood no problems in the nine years of ownership. They are both V8's, and we have modified both. They are one of the easiest to access parts for to do whatever you want them too. They are both set up for road course. As far as daily driving, they are decent on fuel consumption, I average 22 around town and up to 30 mpg highway, and I run super for fuel, and I have a standard transmission in both, with different rear end gears and tunes."

Leather on the door panels on the 2005 is starting to peel, otherwise interior is nice, clean and functional, not cheap looking

Granted mine has been lowered and added too, but it's sleek and reminds me of the early 70's body

Back seat is worthless, really a two seater for most purposes. Rear seat does not fold down for more trunk space.

Great value if you don't mind a higher mileage vehicle.

Convertible
"Where do I start. Fast and yet economical...it gets better gas mileage than my 1972 Datsun 510 (which had a 4 cylinder engine). Recognizable anywhere and there are so many "customizing" items for sale, so you can make it your own. The V-6 engine has been around for decades and is very reliable and strong. I love the convertible part."

Very Retro and yet modern.

Super stylish and so easily recognizable. The 2005-2009 have the best style of all the new Mustangs as they resemble most their forbearers style....especially the round headlights.

Fast and yet I get 20-26 mpg.

The convertible can carry anything. Has a big trunk for a muscle car and 4 seats.

My vehicle has needed only 2 repairs in the 6 years that I have owned it. I have had over 35 cars since 1972, but this one I have owned the longest and like the most.

Good Car
"Mileage is a little high but the car performs great! No over heating, AC is good. Ride is as expected for a performance car. A few of the interior pieces need to be replaced as well as a Brake job performed. Suspect oil needs to be changed. Spare tire equipment was missing"

"No problems Suburban Ford even gave me a warranty I took the car in for second opinion and the car appeared to be sound. The price was right and I am pleased car fax was right on target."

"I bought it for a reliable vehicle for school and the sport style of it. I use it for going back and fourth to school. The GT Premium was a nice touch with the red interior and silver exterior. My advise is to use KBB and Carfax to get the best price. "

"Great car, the 2005 mustang GT. Make sure you like the stick shift and you can handle it before you buy a manual :-) My pass seat has a rattling noise when nobody is sitting on it. It drives me crazy...I could not hear it during test drive because I never drove alone. All in all nice fun car, worth the money and the noise is fabulous , buy it!!"

"Made a Great choice in vehicles. Limited edition vehicle, and the Carfax was right on. Salesmen are a Different story. They lied right to my Face, did not know what they were talking about. Between My Knowledge of Vehicles, and the Carfax, I know more than the Whole Auto dealership Did. Thanks Again "
