Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA 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.

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"

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

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"

Any vehicle not included in "Zone A", or "Zone B" is not included in the safety recall. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Ford mailed interim letters informing owners that parts are not yet available on July 15, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available.
