Great Vehicle
"The Mustang GT has been fun and reliable. It handles spirited driving and cruising with ease. It is all black with the black-out package so it isn't flashy, which is what we wanted. My wife sums it up by saying that every time she starts it, the car makes her smile."

Fun car, great for two. Not for gas mileage, but for FUN
"This car is great for singles and young couples, not for when you have kids. It’s powerful, the V8 growl is like no other, and pretty confortable... as long as you’re in the front! Being a thirsty car, you should not be concerned about gas mileage with this car, that’s not why you buy it. "

Looks great but the performance could be better
"The car looks great and the leather interior with heated and cooled seats looks sharp. The Shaker Pro sounds system is great. Gas mileage is probably the best for a muscle car. The performance could be better though. If you hit the pedal from a slow speed / dead start, the acceleration is satisfying but when you accelerate from a steady speed, there's a noticeable lag in the Ecoboost engine before it kicks in. Overall, if you want a cool looking muscle car with a decent gas mileage, the Ford Mustang Ecoboost is for you."

Heated and cooled leather seats look excellent and work great. Best part about the car to be honest.

The back seats are pretty lacking, even for a coupe. It's a pain to let someone get in those seats.
Cost

For a muscle car, it probably has the best gas mileage. Obviously, it's not a Camry so you'll have to visit the gas station more often. Ford dealerships are pretty cold, inattentive, but they get the job done when under warranty.

Ecoboost Convertible
"The Ecoboost version has plenty of power above 2000 rpm when the turbo kicks in, but from idle to that rpm it’s a bit of a dog. I average 22 mpg combined city and hwy however using the recommended premium gas adds up dollar wise. On the plus side it is a very good looking car and I get compliments on it all the time. The ride is nice and firm, something you would expect from a sports car."
Interior

Lots of standard luxury features you wouldn’t expect for a car in this class. Just be careful on what you use to clean the gauge lenses. Mine has a slight haze on them from the car wash people using something like Windex on them.

Ecoboost premium Auto/Convertible
"I enjoy driving my Mustang convertible. Plenty of pep and good few economy. The cooled and heated seats, along with the remote start is a great plus. I owned a 1968 Ford Mustang back in high school. This was is like driving a Cadillac compared to the old one. Don't get me wrong, the 68 was a 302, 4 barrel, 4 speed. Fun car also, but 8 track wouldn't stay working, on cold days very little heat produced for the heater core, still wish I owned it for the investment. The 2017 convertible, which I opted for because I gave up my Harley for 4 wheels instead of 2, I don't heal as quick as I used to. But overall I get a lot of positive comments on the look of the iconic Mustang. "
Interior

3.0

Interior could be more plush, arm rest on both the door and middle isle needs to be more plush/padded. The window buttons should be moved back a few inches so you don't have to reach so far, I'm 5'8". Arm rest moved up or made to slide forward. The difference between a hard top and a convertible is the sound proofing. Probably not much they can do about that other than to go to a hard top convertible, which would be really cool in a Mustang. BMW's and other luxury car brands have them, why not a Mustang?

Cost is ok, but for the number one American selling sportscar, they depreciate in value quickly.

Fun to Drive
"Mustangs have long been good, solid vehicles; and this car is no exception. This GT Premium model is very fun to drive, and I like the heavy feel of the 5.0L V8 on the road. Truly "Grand Touring." Ford keeps making their vehicles safer and more refined every year. The HID headlamps illuminate the road well at night. The driving-mode paddle switch on the GT Premium includes options for Sport+ and Snow/Wet. I feel safer driving with the latter on while on wet pavement. Of course, my Mustang has virtually no leg room in the rear seat, as I put the front seats nearly all the way back. If I needed to haul people, I would have bought something else, or I would use my F-150 SuperCrew (why not?). The exhaust note seems overly loud to me, but that is part of the Mustang persona. In sum, the Mustang is my fun-to-drive runabout."
Interior

5.0

The bucket seats are very comfortable, and the interior-lighting choices on the Premium models are fun to experiment with and use.
Exterior

5.0

The low profile of this car, as well as the rest of the design, is a delight to look at. In the 2017 model, I like where the fog lights are mounted: close to the road in the air dam below the front bumper. That is the best place for them.
Performance

5.0

As to acceleration, the 5.0L double-overhead-cam V8 is a screamer. It has so much power that the driver is well-advised to be careful with it. The handling is like the car is glued to the road, or as we old-timers say, "it rides like it is on rails."
Family

3.0

Well, that depends on the size of the family, does it not? Personally, I like a 4-door vehicle for ease of access to the back seat.
Cost

4.0

Mustang V8s seem pricey to me. However, I bought it, and I am delighted with the gas mileage I get with the 2017 GT: over 19 mpg in town and over 22 mpg for mostly-highway driving. This car has a 6-speed transmission with a 3:15 rear axle ratio; I expect later models with the 10-speed transmission do a little better.
