I absolutely love everything about this car. It looks and runs like a million dollars, especially considering that it is only a v6. This is a surprisingly fast car and is much more comfortable than other coupes in the same price range.
It is a very heavy car, rather than many of the light-weight competitors. I can really hear the difference when driving up my gravel driveway. It does not sound like the kicked-up rocks will bust a hole through the bottom, as opposed to some of our other cars.
However, I did pay much more than the $16,000 v6 price as a result of the upgrades that I wanted. For example, I paid extra for the pony package, premium package, leather seats, traction control, and aftermarket accessories. The window sticker was much closer to the price range of the GT. Yet, these upgrades are absolutely worth the extra money and make the car a real head turner. Many people have told me that it is one of the nicest Mustangs that they have ever seen, even though it is not a high performer like the Saleen or Cobra.
