2010 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible 4.0 V6 from North America
Looks better than the 90's version and handles better - but if I buy it would be a V8
Auto shifter would not locate Park all the time - therefore would not start back up as the car would be in reverse. Only way to start car would be to manually rock the car back and forth from the outside and get someone else to start it.
Rubber seal slightly loose around passenger window (convertible).
This was a hire car from Hertz, and apart from the above mentioned the car was a joy to drive for two weeks. The handling and performance for a 4.0L V6 was good. Only once did I notice the back end slightly twitch on hard cornering - but generally very planted.
My comparison would be to a '99 Z28 I owned - which of course had better performance, but not that much worse fuel economy. Handling wise the Mustang I have to say was probably better.
If you do buy the V6 though - upgrading the brakes are a must. Although they feel firm, they don't brake as well as you would expect from a pony car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

That's great on a new car!! I'd be looking at a Toyota if I had to rock my Mustang back and forth with someone else to get it to start every day!!
