2010 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible

I couldn't help but feel a bit like Charlie Brown as I climbed into our Mustang GT convertible just in time to see big fat raindrops starting to fall from the sky. The clouds didn't fully clear until I turned in the keys. When you don't have the wind in your face and V-8 growl in your ears, it's hard to see why anyone would pay $38,715 for this car. It shudders over bumps much more than the coupe and, in the wet, was bouncing its tail all over the place.

That's not to say I didn't have fun. The snick-snick shifter, eager V-8, and quick turn-in are all present and accounted for, as is the swell interior. To me though, the incredible value proposition of a Mustang GT starts to fade when you cut off the roof and add lots of wimpy options like leather seating. Of course, I'd probably have an entirely different perspective had the sun been shining...

I'd wager that the Ford Mustang Convertible is the perfect car, and I do mean that. This review outlined that there are better cars to drive for cheaper, but none that do are big enough (Mini Cooper Convertible) and none that are bigger are cool enough (Chrysler Sebring). This car is even a viable replacement for the family sedan. My mother drives one and she, my dad, and I just took a 9 hour road trip. Mind you, I'm 6 foot and my dad's 5'11" and I could sit behind him easily, although I preferred to sit behind my 5'6" mom. I am not flexible, so clearly the seats are big enough for those older than 12. It also swallowed enough luggage and supplies for a full week, including wedding clothes. It is, in short, a perfect balance of everything. And anyone who's ever driven convertibles should know to check the windshield header. This review was bogus.
This is the first review in which so many "problems" have been found with the 2010 Mustang. Personally I think you guys took your frustration with the weather and what not on the review. As for the convertible handles....please...anyone who's ever driven a Mustang Convertible knows excatly where things are. In worst case scenerio Ford does provide a drivers manual. Lame review in my opinion. Next time try not to bash the car because of a bad mood.
