Recently traded my 2009 Mustang GT (sadly, with no pedestrian kills to its credit) for a 2017 Ecoboost convertible. Wasn’t really planning on this but got a great deal on trade-in and got the wife’s blessing - in convertible form. Very impressed thus far - so much more solid even as a convertible, handling exponentially better (thanks IRS!!! - now I’m down to 2 solid axles in the garage, both on an XJ), and the power is good (about the same as the 4.6) even if the sound is not glorious V8 music. Not everyone in the family was in favor of it, but those opposed did not have the financial clout to put up much of a fight.
