2005 Mustang GT??

Any of you out there own this new beast? If so, how about a review. I'd
like to hear some pros and con from real drivers (don't trust magazines with
the advertising dollars thrown their way their likely to say anything).

Thanks,
Jack

I've got one. I love it. It's got a 'thunk' from the rear end when touching the
gas pedal at low speeds in 2nd or 3rd. I complained when I first bought the car
and the transmission was replaced. Sound is still there. Dealer said it was
'normal'. Will have a different dealer look at it when I take it in for the 5000
mile service.

Also, the gas tank was replaced due to a design problem which allowed gas to
only trickle into the tank.

I'm keeping my eyes out for a manual GT in the Wash. DC area to compare with
mine, as far as the noise from the rear end goes.

What does 'twin turboed' mean? (FYI, I'm a new Mustang owner.) Also, would those
kind of modifications void the warranty?

I got one and I LOVE it! Great car, great styling, and fast as he!!!

If you want more information from owners, check out AllFordMustang.Com and
TheMustangSource.Com. Great sites with loads of information, both the good
and the ugly.

Re: 2005 Mustang GT??

I've got the V6 convertible and love it but there are a few quality control
issues:

Press down in the drivers well and it goes up and down and sounds like a pop
can.
The panels directly over the roof hinges are bruised already and need
replacing
Squeeks from a variety of places (dash, roof, back seat)
Anti-lock flutter at times for no reason - not even close to locking up
Manual transmission clunks in 1st and 2nd
....

I'm at about 1800 km on this brand new car. Seeing as none of this is
engine or suspension related, the GT experience should be similar. Ah, who
am I kidding, aside for its good looks its a pile of shit. Cost me $32K
Canadian - should have just kept the older Mustang GT. Wait till the
problems are resolved with this car first - it is definitely a first year
car.

Ciao,
MT

Yes.

It rocks my world, and has gotten me laid.

No problems other than the gas tank shutoff glitch. They fixed it and
all is good. The Shaker 1000 even plays the grotty old generic CD-RWs I
use and reuse.

Although one of the fog lamps burned out the other day.
