Absolutely Love It! - My last 'Stang was a '96 GT. My V-6 is faster, and more fun to drive than that car was, though I loved it as well. Acceleration is excellent. More than enough to get me into or out of trouble. I took it on a mountain road, and it cornered great great. Always predictable. IRS will be nice, but I went fast enough to have some fun. I'm not Jeff Gordon. If you're looking for a fun to drive dependable car with plenty of power, and allot of looks, and comments, you'll love this car! Ya, the GT hauled, but I'm getting 29-33 MPG with my V-6. How fast do I need to go? Back seats are ok for 5'9, and under. Don't like Ford's Sync, but it was hardly a deal breaker. I love this car!!

Suggestions: Sync system is Not very intuitive Console storage is not generous

Fun Car - I haven't had a "fun" car in 30 years due to family & company car requirements. My 2014 basic 6cyl manual is a totally fun "toy". I use the Mustang for daily cummute & weekend erands. The car gets an amazing 25.5MPG & the attention the Mustang gets at the gas station is surprising. The 6 speed manual is more fun the longer you own the car.

Stock doesn't get any better - I made the mistake of test driving the GT after owning an older V6 mustang. Night and day difference in terms of performance. Without trying you can get your pulse up in just a sec. Not just a straight line car though. Very tight and handles great through the turns. Wasn't looking for the premium package, but the refinement was quite nice. Very comfortable leather seats and nice materials throughout. Gave what I thought was a long shot offer to the dealer and they accepted without even countering. Very pleased with several thousand off MSRP with one of the first 2014s out of the factory. Great fun to drive, plus I can still get around 25 mpg on the highway. Looking forward to driving more.

Suggestions: The seat belt mechanism is going to break. Neat idea, but poor quality material. The height of the cup holder interferes with shifting. Being slightly recessed would be perfect. I'm a little bit techy and I still find the controls for the Sync a little confusing. Probably won't use it much actually. I know a lot of people love it, but I'm not a fan. Getting anything in and out of the back seat is a rough process with the electronic seats. Slow and have to find driving position every time. Clutch is a little bit notchy to me. If I'm not really paying attention I will miss gears. Can't just slam through gears effortlessly. Placement of iPod and USB for me is not convenient.

V6 Auto base model - One reviewer said he was looking at Ford because they didn't take government money. I admit that was a consideration for me. I went looking for a Fusion but found they were pricey. I will have to drive the mini van in the snow but that's a necessary compromise in the Midwest. I have 1500 miles on my Mustang now, I'm getting 23 mpg so far (the same as my 08 Grand Prix) and this car makes me smile every time I look at it. You can modify a 'stang but I think mine looks great as is. I'm glad I didn't get a boring car. Bucket List! PS-I do have the auto tran but that wasn't an option for the review. Cost-under 22K. I get the feeling you can get an even better deal if you bargain better than me.

Suggestions: The door makes a fairly clunky sound when you close it rather than a smooth "snick" but you probably need to spend and extra 20k and get a BMW for that.

'14 GT, no options - After taking my time and driving all manner of "budget" performance cars, I've purchased a brand new '14 GT, $0 in options. No auto trans, no apps, no nothing. V8 with 3 pedals. Bluetooth would've been nice, but not for $1500. You can do better for way less. Cloth seats are great, sound is decent from stock radio. Stock radio reads data MP3 CDs, so if you're thinking of going stock radio don't be deterred because it lacks the USB input. Standard HID headlights and LED tail lights are awesome. The car handles bumps and turns well with stock suspension. If you need a 4 seat car, forget this. The back 2 are for insurance discounts, dogs, and paraplegics.

Suggestions: The passenger seat could ride a bit higher. Shorter passengers have complained that they cannot see over the dash; the passenger seat doesn't adjust upwards. A telescoping steering wheel would be great. Automatic windshield wipers are another thing that could sweeten the deal. Overall, I'd say that my base car checks all of the boxes for a daily driver muscle car that can pull bonus track duty. It's fun, attractive, and it looks great. If you are considering buying one, go drive it and see what you think. I believe that you will be pleasantly surprised.

wow - Wanted something fun to drive without pretentiousness just good old fashion American muscle. Initially picked Ford because they didn't take the government handout and glad I did. This mustang GT with the trackpack and reverse sensors in race red color is simply outstanding. If I drive it the consciences way to maximize mileage I can achieve the advertised mpg....but with this fantastic motor I just can't resist the power, exhaust note and the fun. Sure the interior is just so-so and the radio it's mediocre but the exterior styling and powertrain are awesome. Thank you Ford.

Suggestions: Radio, interior

2014 Mustang Convertible - Wow ! Driving a 2014 V6 Convertible around Central Florida is FUN ! There are compromises - V6 for regular gas, automatic tranny more practical when I4 is a parking lot. BUT - this car hugs the road, loves curves, accelerates & brakes smoothly. I enjoy the handling as much as my wife appreciates the smooth ride. Still learning to use the SYNC, but I'm getting there.

Suggestions: Suggestions - give me 2 cars for the price of 1. That's about it so far.
