I bought an 06 mustang pony package with 104,000 miles today. I plan on changing the oil to 5w30 Valvoline full synthetic and a motorcraft oil filter. Also changing the coolant tomorrow and inspecting the trans and re diff fluid. She runs good and is a lot of fun. She has aftermarket wheels but thats the only thing that's been changed. I do plan on buying new tires soon as these are going on 6 years old. I paid $4200 for her and drove her 2 hours home. Very happy with her. Fun little car!!

Looks good! If it's a manual, or auto, I caution you on messing with those fluids. I've messed up both with fluid changes at over 70k miles.

Nice looker. I would imagine the 4.0 engine? Fairly reliable car and cheap to own and maintain/repair.

I'd not mess with the fluid. I had a T56 that I had the fluid changed in at 77K miles. It never shifted right again. Not BAD, but it was like buttah! before. After, for the next 70K miles it was just...notchy. Not that super slick T56 experience we all loved. Not near as bad as my 370Z or anything, but not excellent either.

Sharp car! Probably better with the 4.0 on a 15 year old pony car, the v8's typically get the snot beat out of them.

I worked at a ford dealership in 2005. Your supposition is not accurate based on my experiences.

Very nice, congrats!
It's a good feeling isn't it?
The tires are 6 yrs old but, what condition are they in & ~ how many miles on them)?

It doesnt matter. They need replaced.

You don’t need to buy tires just because they’re 6 years old unless they are cracking. https://www.michelinman.com/howLongTireLast.html
