For the present generation, the Ford Mustang is the ideal comeback from the golden ages of classic cars. The muscular appeal of the iconic Mustang is here in 2008 to take your breath away with its sheer power and class. Ford Mustang has always been a name to reckon with, and every other model assert why exactly it is so.
Among rear wheel driven coupes, the 2008 Ford Mustang V6 Deluxe Convertible is a pretty good car in all aspects. It performs great on road tests, and delivers for every day travel. For customers seeking a mix of fun and comfort, the 2008 Ford Mustang V6 Deluxe Convertible is ideal. The chassis is all new and the low stance is macho and wonderful. What is pleasant is that the car is absolutely affordable for the average customer who wants the Ford Mustang name but cannot splurge. Of course, some compromises have been made, but there are certain optional packages like prep, color, Safety & security and Appearance, which the willing customer could benefit from.
For a great ride in the open air, the For Mustang offers the best. This impressive new 210 hp convertible is fun and performs well in the city and on the highways, with miles-per-gallon output of 17 and 26 respectively. Tremec manual transmission (5 speed) with Overdrive is excellent. The power vented front and rear disc brakes are impressive. The car comes with rack and Pinion gears, with a tilt steering column as well. The suspension consists of good shock absorbers and a stabilizer bar. What is worth mentioning is the safety features. The Mustang designers have kept the customer’s security in mind while providing good airbags, crash sensors, an engine security system with SecuriLock anti-theft, pretensioners and locking retractors as well.
As for styling and comfort, the car offers a Power Soft Top for the convertible, a reasonably good sound system with CD player and radio, some really good lighting and illuminated keyless entry and comfortable seats. The exterior halogen lighting is good, as are the 16 inch painted alloy wheels. Tinted glass, sunvisors and power windows are some other features. In all, the mustang is a neat car for the modern generation.
