Default Slow 0 - 60 on my Mustang GT

Hello guys

I bought recently a '06 mustang GT convertible Auto Premium Edition (Stock). It Had been fully serviced and in very good condition.

I was expecting 0-60 in around 5.5 seconds.. All I am getting is in 6.5 Seconds . Is it normal on stock GT's..??

i have never done a 0-60 time on my car so im not sure about it maybe some other people will post what there cars run. 6.5 secs does sound kinda high but weather plays a big factor with a cars time and plus the vert does weigh a lil more.......

also keep the top up, do not try to race with the top down!! it will kill you big time.

You probably just need to take those non-aerodynamic mudflaps off for a better 0-60.
