2010 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible

I had a VERY late night run in the GT convertible, after a long week attempting to write. It was about 70 degrees and threatening rain. And dark. And I was aimed for the interstate. But if this was going to be my only crack at this Mustang for a while, I was going to make the most of it. Top down, windows up, heat on, fan on high. Glorious summer evening air blowing my hair around.

This engine is best off the line and at low speed, in terms of the good low-down roar. It sounds superb and throaty. But once you're in fifth at 80 mph, there are no more big blasts of power. That must be one lonnngggg gear.

Hey. How about the sewn-in seat stripes? Really nice touch.

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.
