#1399 of 1524 Nothing wrong with my GT

Almost a year now, since I bought my loaded GT Premium w/ manual. Still get the same kick as the first time. No problems.
Pony's are sprouting up everywhere, but GT's remain relatively rare, esp. w/ manual (why would anyone get an auto trans, unless female?). See a lot of 18" wheels, round spokes, (I have the 17" solid aluminum wheels), and too many add-on chrome wheels, as if the ignorant couldn't leave well enough alone.
I honestly believe this is most car money can buy, so ... uh ... stop your belly-aching. If you can't stand the heat, don't go into the kitchen. If you can't handle 300 HP w/ a manual, get a Honda.

I have had some problems (steering and front suspension noises) with my '04 MUSTANG GT PREMIUM,only has 13,000 miles on it now, they fixed steering noise after 3 visits to dealer with an up-dated part(s),you would think by '04 they would have had "the bugs out"of the past model MUSTANG, NOT!! THE ONLY REASON I bought (and keep) a FORD is because nobody else makes the MUSTANG! I love MUSTANGS, so I put up with the "little" problems...sorry to hear of folks who have had (serious) problems with theirs..

Good Luck, I have the same issues with my 2006. Plus many others. The car has been in the shop for over 50 days since I bought it last October. I tried the lemon law stuff, but it just went to arbitration and all I got was a little better warranty. For a car that I was so excited when I bought it, I hate it with a passion. I pray everyday that I go down the road that something catastrphic happens to it. I have been to 3 different dealerships, local area managers, district service managers and heaven only knows how many FORD CUSTOMER I DONT CARE PEOPLE.
Such a pretty car and such a freaking LEMON!

My 2005 Mustang V6 coupe (automatic) has been having transmission problems since the day I bought it last May. It intermittently will not engage into drive, and sometimes slips out of gear while I am driving, acting as if in neutral. (the car will rev up, but goes no where) It is an intermittent problem, so the mechanics at dealerships have not been able to have the car act this way for them. I currently have a "flight simulator" in my car to record computer codes from the car when it does this. I'm running out of warranty miles, so I'm getting worried, What have you figured out with your Stang?
