Used Ford Mustang: In Depth


USED FORD MUSTANG OWNER REVIEWS

2007 Ford Mustang

I love this car. I had a 1967 Mustang back in the early 70s and always wanted another one. But this car is twice the car my 67 was. It's reliable, fun to drive, gets great gas mileage (up to 31 mpg on the highway), and basically trouble free. The only money I've spent in 7 years is on tires and oil changes. I did opt for the V6 with gas mileage in mind because I drive it every day. But the V6 has plenty of power for what I need. I'd buy another one.

MODEL OVERVIEW

In the early 1960s the Mustang was an instant hit, capturing the imagination of car enthusiasts throughout the nation. Upon its entrance as one of the first muscle cars in America, the public clamor for the pony car was so intense that one Texas driver reportedly slept in his Mustang at the dealership overnight to be sure it wasn’t sold from under him while the check cleared. It has made over 3,200 appearances on both film and television giving it one of the most prolific theatrical careers of any vehicle—it is this kind of frenzied history that makes the Ford Mustang the iconic American muscle car that it is today. Both lovers of speed and design can agree that the Mustang packs a punch. This real-life Hot Wheel’s athletic and eye-catching design is ever present in the newer models, so if you are looking for a car to turn heads, you will with the Mustang.

The last time the Mustang was significantly revised was in 2005. Ford switched out the long-in-the-tooth frame for the better-engineered DEW98 platform shared with the Thunderbird and Lincoln LS. The design pays homage to Shelby's 1967 design with round headlights, a big grille, vintage-styled tail lights and even the triangular rear windows. Engine choices in the GT version are powerful whether you are looking at the V6 or the 4.6-liter, all-aluminum V8 sports with three valves per cylinder.

The Mustang is the only original pony car to maintain an uninterrupted production cycle for over five decades (though the 80s era Mustang is nothing to brag about). Now entering its fifth generation, the Mustang of the past few years intentionally recalls the design of the first-generation Mustang. Its engines are powerful enough to burn rubber, especially the Shelby GT500 model with a supercharged 5.8-liter. Modern engineering has made the new Mustang safer than the pre-airbag days muscle cars. As you search for your dream car, ask yourself if you can afford to look for one with upgrades like exterior sports detailing, RECARO seats that feature Alcantara suede, and a Shaker Audio System with HD Radio technology. With an MSRP starting at $22,510 for 2014, the Mustang just might be the go-to vehicle for the street racer or highway cruiser in you.

SAFETY

You will be happy to know that the Ford Mustang offers more than flash and power. This car will appeal to the safety-conscious as well. Available safety features include dual front airbags, Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Lower Anchors and Tether Anchors for Children (LATCH), the electronic stability controls, SOS Post-Crash Alert System, and a passive anti-theft system. These features have helped the Mustang coupe earn 4 out of 5 stars for overall crash protection from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as well as “Good” ratings for frontal-, side-, and rear-impact protection from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

NOTEWORTHY ABOUT THE FORD MUSTANG

Most recently the 2015 Ford Mustang won Best Production Car at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show as well as nods from the recent past for “Best of the Year” Driver’s Choice Award from MotorWeek (2012), the Forbes list of Fastest Cars Under $50,000 (2012), inclusion on Ward’s 10 Best Engines list (2012), and the JD Power Most Dependable Car in Its Class (2011).

You guys are great.  My son and his father went to a car auction. And using CARFAX reports, my son found his dream car.  It was a silver convertable Ford Mustang.  Thank you CARFAX.
