2007 Ford Mustang GT California Special

If you need "cheap" speed, there are few better choices than the Mustang. Yes, it's got a telephone pole out back for a rear end but, it's better at turning than GM's old F-bodies and for me at least, it's far more comfortable than a Nissan 350z. I did consider the 350z but, I'm a big guy (6'2" and well north of 200lbs) and foundd the Nissan too small once the door was closed. The Mustang is nothing like my Raptor in terms of interior room but, the sound track from the V8 with flowmasters outback makes all other audio entertainment a non-factor. This chassis was designed for a 300hp V8 but, it really could use more power. Torque is there but, mostly at the mid to high end of the RPM range and it could use a sixth gear on the highway. Of course, these are all things that Ford addressed in the 2011 Mustang which is the same chassis with new body work and a much better and more efficient V8. While I look forward to an independent rear suspension in 2014, I hope they don't screw up everything they've gotten right in this car since 2005.

Hottest car I've owned

by from NE Missouri on August 2, 2012

OK, this isn't a Lamborghini but it doesn't cost near as much either. However it's a great car. Powerful, sporty and comfortble for a small car. I get positive comments on it frequently. I was fortunate to find a five year old car with only 30k miles on cars.com. It's a 2007 Mustang GT California Special with chin spolier and rear fascia, two tone leather seats and 18" polished aluminum wheels original to the CS edition. A lot of car for the money.

I've had my 07 now for almost 3 years and have had only one mechanical issue with the hand brake locking up on an ice cold winter morning. Other than that I get around 24 mpg work and back and have gotten up to 28 mpg on longer road trips. I love the styling of the S197 mustang and for day-today use the V6 provides ample torque and power. My only complaints are: 1. Hard materials used on the centre console bruises the outside of my knee on long trips. 2. The live axle in the back can make for scary moments on bumpy highway on- and off-ramps.

The mustang is not the best performing car, it's not the fastest, or the craziest design.... But an icon doesn't have to be. The mustang is what the owner wants it to be... a daily driver, a weekend racer, or a show car, and it will do each of those well. This new platform is the best yet. The handling is respectful for a solid axle, power is the best it's ever been, and styling is again, iconic. Inside, the technology of the SYNC system makes the experience of driving even more convenient. I own a 08' GT California Special, bought new 3/08, and I still have people approach me with questions and comments. I'm sure the style of these cars will never grow old. Is a Mustang. It's something ya gotta experience.

This is my second mustang. The v6 is powerful and the styling is why I bought the car. Seats are comfortable for long drives. I always get looks and thumbs up. Most people don't know the difference between it and the GT model. It handles great and inspires confidence in the wet.

We bought our 2007 Ford Mustang after test driving it, and are delighted with the purchase.The car performs well. It is zippy and spiffy. The vehicle is solid and rides smoothly, turns on a dime, and makes a person come alive. Interior is pleasant, exterior is fire red. A magnificent vehicle.

I have owned several Mustangs, mostly vintage, one Fox body. This Mustang GT has the style of the vintage Mustangs I have owned combined with above average performance in every category. It is not the best handling, braking, or accelerating. What it is, is very good at all of these combined with an acceptable entry price. The biggest drawback I have found to date is the car is heavy, almost 3400 lbs. Compared to my '89 Mustang at 2850 lbs, it is very noticeable. The performance in stock trip is impressive, but won't set any records. Most enthusiests complaints would be addressed with a couple of Ford Racing packages, FR1 & FR3. Ford already has a car on the lot so equipped, the Shelby GT (not GT500) sporting an extra 25 horsepower and better handling.

Ok I've owned nothing but trucks since i was 15, this is the first car I've bought. I had owned 2 fords before this and vowed never to buy a ford again. Anyways, This car gets me everywhere I need to go just faster than anything else. I own the V6 and I am slightly disappointed with the gas mileage (only seeing 19-23 around town) But the power is more than I'll ever need. I'm 6'4 and fit perfectly in it and can travel for a long time before having to get out and stretch. I haven't had any problems with it other than a squeaky belt that was fixed under warranty great car for the money.
