2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt 4.6L (281) SOHC from North America
Overwhelming, Rapid, Worth every penny. Ohh, and NEVER LET YOUR KID(S) DRIVE IT!
Three problems, and not mechanical. Just cosmetic, the "aluminum" on the dash looks nice, but when tapped, it feels fake. Tires are expensive, and the Transmission is only a 5 speed.
This is the second best car I have ever owned, (2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (First best car) ). The performance is well over the $30,000 price tag. It feels like you're doing 50MPH when holding at 120. It doesn't handle the way I would LIKE, but then again, the car was not actually created for cornering. The seats are very comfortable, and support my back very well, and the sound system is ear piercing. Even though, if you owned a car like this and you listen to the radio, you should get a different car. The exhaust system is OVERWHELMING! When I was a kid and I went to go see 'Bullitt' I always dreamed of having a Mustang just like that. Now I have one. Tires are a once every two month thing. The rims are very smooth, the Woodland Green body is so astonishing. I understand for about 10 grand more I could have got a Shelby, but I have always wanted to become as close to Steve McQueen as possible. This has helped me accomplish that. Braking is great, Acceleration is very fast. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I'll try to answer them accordingly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

When you take a sharp turn without braking (not recommended on regular roads) the axle makes a snapping noise. This is because whatever the left rear wheel does, the right rear wheel has to do. These cars were not meant to be abused with cornering. The weight distribution spread out over the car leads me to believe that this car was engineered to go in a straight line. I did not buy this car to turn. People tend to point this out a lot mainly because it is one of a very low count of things wrong with the car. To me, this fault is cosmetic. If this was my daily driver, maybe I'd complain about it. So, long story short. You really have to sit and wait for it to happen, in order to notice it.
