A decent car for the money

In my plucky mind, I think that when buying this vehicle , you get a lot of car in relation to the amount of money you have to spend on it including service, maintenance, insurance, etc. It has almost everything you would desire in a sporty car. From fancy stereo systems to vividl colorful leather interiors, this car will meet your demands. The styling is also very well thought through and accomplished. The bodywork is not too "look at me" ostentatious, but is sportily subtle and not to extravagant concerning the attention factor. The engine pulls vary smoothly through all the gears even on an automatic transmission. Although the motor might be a tad too underpowered it provides still right amounts of torque to deliver that sports car feeling. In all, the '05 Mustang is a very good buy. I hope this review will be useful and I hope I made your decision to buy or not buy this car easier.

Style, Speed, and "Sure footed"

My first Mustang was a '67 so, when Ford unveiled this 40th anniversary retro look - I bought my first new car. Mine had every option from the neon color changeable dash lights to the chrome lug nut covers on the pony alloy wheels in the premium V6 sports package. This car hugged the road in sharp curves, accelerated quickly & easily and steered with a light, yet responsive touch. A dream to drive, to ride in and to own. The leather interior and door striping added elegance, but that low, muscle car growl really gives the power punch! In town driving of 19 mpg and 22+ on hwy makes this car affordable to drive. Can't touch this baby for a comparable package of affordable, reliable, power, style, and fun.

I got my mineral grey 05 Mustang about 4 1/2 years ago. It had 35k when I got it. It the automatic, and though it's the six banger, with a sweet duel exhaust it sounds amazing. I have some nice rims, wide rubber, hood pins, hood scoop, boss 302 rear black out kit, gold stripes across the hood, roof and trunk and rear wing. I drive the car constantly, I now have 96 K miles. I am the president of a mustang club, so I show it all the time, race it (mid 15s, 89mph), and even now, whenever I get gas, I still amost always have people comment on how nice a car it, or thinking that it is still nearly new. Gas mileage is very good, but I have a lead foot. I have had normal stuff needing changed, tie rod, battery, brakes, tires. But never major stuff. The styling is awesome. I grew up in the 60's and it is almost reliving my childhood. I see all the great lines from 60's stangs all over the car. I never, even after all this time, am tires yet of the looks. I know allot of people think the interior is cheap, but I also got one of those 400.oo woodgrain interior kits. Tottally kicks up the dash and eliminates the black cheap plastic look. But the dash too reminds me of the 67-68 dash. The dash cover and the long hood take me back. THe car is fun to drive, and with traction control, antilock brakes, and winterforce snows..( I live by Cleveland) I have never, ever had a scary moment int he winters. We just had over 100 inches of snow this winter, and I have driven this car for four winters. I drive the car concientiously...I know what it's good at in back weather, and what it bad at, Just use commen sense. Most of you just commute by yourself from point A to point B. The thought of spending countless thousands on some car (good as it may be) that is boring, ugly, or just anohther forgettable applience is stupid. Why not have unforgettable looks, classic style, descent gas mileage, Fun drive, enough bulk for it to feel safter than allot of smaller cars, and something you can modify sensibly for cheap. Plus the insurance and overall reliablility is cost affective too. I wholeheartedlly recommend any 05 up stang...!!!!

I bought my Mustang in April of 2007 and it has been the best car we have ever had. Other than oil changes, one new battery and a small part that cracked on the thermostat, this car has never let us down. Not only does it look great and we get compliments on it all the time, it is a comfortable ride, and even the 6 cylinders have enough power to get you where you want to go in a hurry. I would recommend this car to anyone. I am a fan of the 2005-2009 body style however. I don't like the new look they came out with for the rear end in 2010, but I would not hesitate to get another Mustang.

I have read some of the reviews on the 2005 Mustang V6 Premium. Gladly , I have not experienced the problems that a couple of drivers have referred to. Not had to take in for warranty work once. All mechanical / electrical systems fine. Power train / Motor, fine. Reliability through +30K miles has been a customers dream. The Shaker 500 stereo systems completely rocks. Cleans up great and has beautiful, deep shine. Still draws lots of compliments. If I could, I would stash this one away for 40 years, then take it to the auction to pad my retirement. Never grows weary on the eyes.

Everywhere I drive I see Mustangs! These are great little cars! The power is amazing for a six cylinder! Pretty decent gas mileage too, on average I get 25mpg, on the hwy close to 30mpg. This is a very solid feeling car, really tight steering, awesome handling! Love the 3 way seat adjusting feature. It is definitely a singles' car, backseat's pretty tight. One other feature I really like is the back seat folds down, really comes in handy sometimes. Great road trip car, smooth riding.

Great Car

by from Gulfport, MS on September 12, 2010

2008 is a Great car. My 2005 mustang v6 had to have a new transmission at 60,00 miles then had electrical problems sold it at 120,000 miles. But I have to say I loved to drive it.
