Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

An acknowledged icon among American sports cars, the Mustang continues to generate a lot of buzz among the media and enthusiasts. Our tests show this version of the Mustang is a major upgrade over the previous model in terms of style, comfort, and performance. With this redesign, Ford reached into the vehicle's early history for styling influences, as the interior and exterior are reminiscent of early Mustangs.

We tested a GT coupe with a 300-hp, 4.6-liter V8 and a five-speed manual transmission. The base model has a 210-hp, 4.0-liter V6 with a five-speed manual or an optional five-speed automatic. Despite the use of a solid rear axle the Mustang is agile and capable, but the ride is stiff and jostling at low speeds. As is typical of many coupes, rear seating is tight and rear access is difficult. Overall, the Mustang remains true to its formula as a quick, stylish and affordable car. Side airbags are standard.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2005 Ford Mustang owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Body Integrity

Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.

What Owners Say

Air or water leaks

"Severe leaks in convertable top leaks around rear window"

Anonymous, CA (2005 Ford Mustang 4.0-L V6)

"The passenger side door developed a leak several years ago. Two dealerships insisted it was a blocked cowl, a common problem with these cars but someone finally figured out it was a problem with the pillar behind the door frame and loose seals"

Anonymous, FL (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Since the month after this car dropped out of the warranty period, the drain that allows water to pass through the cowl area has blocked. This caused water to pool inside the cowl. One year when I put the car into winter storage (unheated garage), the water in the cowl froze and broke apart the wiper assembly and wiper motor. After that was fixed, each year the wiper plug corrodes and has to be cleaned or repaired. Also, the laying water caused a hole to rust on the firewall side of the cowl"

Anonymous, PA (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Coolant leak around thermostat."

Anonymous, SC (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.0-L V6)

"It leaks around the seals that latch top to windshield by sides of car, caused by heavy water pressure - ie washing the car or heavy rain."

Anonymous, NJ (2005 Ford Mustang Premium 4.0-L V6)

"convertible roof leaked"

Anonymous, FL (2005 Ford Mustang 4.0-L V6)

"Water leak in front passenger"

Anonymous, MO (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"When it rains, water leaks into the cabin through a rust hole in the cowl, below the windshield wiper motor, and into the passenger side, pouring directly over the fuse box. Vehicle can only be driven in fair weather, and is 100 percent garaged for the past 10 years. It is a very good looking piece of furniture. Also, filling it with gasoline is a pain...the fuel dispenser spout must be held upside down while filling with fuel due to a defect in a safety feature built into the gasoline tank."

Anonymous, PA (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Back windows on both sides at different times, opened and then would not reclose. When repaired they did not reclose tightly causing water to leak into the car during rain."

Anonymous, (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Water leaks into passenger side compartment from frequently obstructed windshield drain"

Anonymous, OH (2005 Ford Mustang Unsure 4.0-L V6)
Seals and/or weather-stripping

"Some of the weather striping has come off around the passenger side windows"

Anonymous, CA (2005 Ford Mustang 4.0-L V6)

"Wasn't diagnosed for several years but water was coming out the speaker in the door panel. Finally attributed to damaged/leaky pillar and deal seals and replaced, costing several hundred dollars each time"

Anonymous, FL (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Leaks at the window seals caused the interior door covering to peel off."

Robert M., OK (2005 Ford Mustang 4.0-L V6)

"when the doors open/close, the window automatically snaps down/up a half inch in order to seal the top of the window with the a- and b-beam and roof; when the battery dies or is not hooked up, the window gets stuck under the seal and the seal becomes very unstable and leaky once it has to be ripped open. Owners are not warned or told this, so if you are like me and store the car yearly with no battery, I learned to leave the window down a half inch before storing the car for winter. Also when I open the trunk after it rains, water leaks from the trunk lid into the middle of the trunk. The car is like a sieve. It will be a fairweather classic soon."

Anonymous, PA (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)
Squeaks or rattles

"Rattle inside passenger door"

Anonymous, TX (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.6-L V8)

"The RPM gauge seems to work most of the time. The speedometer only works on occasion. The fuel gauge and temperature gauge don't work at all"

Shanon L., CA (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.0-L V6)

"Instrument Cluster is not working (gas gauge, speedometer, RPM). Estimate cost to fix - $1200 range"

Paul S., ON (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"The temperature gauge no longer works"

Bryan R., NY (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.0-L V6)

"The analog gauges have all quit working (or are intermittent) in the last year"

Anonymous, MI (2005 Ford Mustang GT 4.6-L V8)

"Tachometer sometimes does not work. The problem is intermittent. The temperature gauge does not show the proper temperature. When the engine is completely cold, the gauge needle starts in the middle. When the car is up to normal operating temperature, the gauge appears as if the car is overheating. Thankfully the gauge is just a display for the driver/operator and the ECU of the car is getting the correct/real water temp because otherwise the engine would shut down on me every time the car"

Anonymous, TX (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.0-L V6)
Difficult to fill up gas tank

"The saddle-bag tank (half on each side of the car) causes back-pressure when filling the tank that fools many modern environmentally-friendly gas pumps into thinking the tank is full even though it is only half full."

Anonymous, CA (2005 Ford Mustang Deluxe 4.6-L V8)
Engine computer

"Check engine light is always on. Ford dealer can't seem to fix it and said go ahead and drive it"
