2007 Ford Mustang 4.0 V6 from North America
Grinning like a teenager
Nothing. Air bag recall.
Disclaimer: this report is a bit biased. I have been a Mustang enthusiast since I had a 67 fastback, 30 years ago.
Our last car was a 98 GT, loved it, but this one is so much better. Granted, the GT performed better, but other than raw horsepower, this one is better in every aspect.
The styling is on point! I feel like I'm sixteen again. Great job Ford on getting the retro right. It has all the advantages of a modern vehicle, with the style of the sixties muscle car.
It's got the Pony Package, love the seats. They are a vast improvement over the 98 (terrible seats). The sound system rocks, figuratively and literally. You can see and feel the bass shake the door panels.
We were hesitant about buying the V6, until we test drove it. It leaps forward from a stop, and acceleration is more than adequate. Takes a little practice to make a smooth, slow start. No trouble beating 90% of the other cars out of a stoplight. Mileage is satisfactory at about 26 highway.
I love the five speed automatic. Shifts are timely and solid. Hate that there is no dipstick, doesn't fare with my Type A personality.
Steering and handling are excellent. Don't care too much for the stock tires though. We are looking forward to upgrading those.
You can pick up chicks with a car like this!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you need "practice" to "make a slow, smooth start" with an automatic, then something is wrong with your idle speed!

It's obvious that you have never driven one.

Update. Had the car four years now and 86k total miles. Had one issue with the left rear brake. Had to replace the rotor. The last winter was hard on everything. The struts are shot as a result and will need to be replaced soon. We replaced the crappy Pirelli tires with premium Coopers. That has been a great upgrade. Great car, we are still enjoying it and have plans to keep it for many more years.

Obvious? I have owned and, uh, driven a 2012 Mustang GT automatic which has much more torque than your V6. Didn't need any "practice" to drive it smoothly, either.

Yours was a 2012, we are talking about 2007. Many drivetrain updates and revisions between the two. So yes, technically it's obvious that you have never driven one.

Oh, you're so right. The 2007 Mustang GT did not have the benefit of all those "drivetrain updates and revisions", so nobody, not just incompetent drivers, was able to drive off from a stop in one slowly and smoothly without lots of practice. It wasn't due to driver's lack of skill. Ford's engineers designed the automatic transmission that way for reasons no one will ever know, not even you.
