1999 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Convertible 2dr Convertible


Review

I have owned this car for roughly 2 years now, and I have to admit that is is the biggest POS I have ever owned. Let's list the problems that I have had in 2 years of ownership: Broken piston in conv top, leaking top, engine had to be replaced at 22,000 miles, car spits coolant like it's Old Faithful, fog lights shorted out, piston rings went on new engine after 12k miles, rear knuckle had to be replaced, CD player does not work... The list goes on. Don't get me wrong, the car is a blast to drive, but I think the service manager at the dealer drove the car more than I did.


Favorite Features

Torque, torque and more torque. Independant rear is a revelation. Gets more attention than Pam Anderson in a bikini.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability is horrendous. The interior was designed by Fisher Price. The car's chassis is from the 70's. Remeber the ugly vinyl seats in your mom's 1970's Crown Vic? Apparently Ford had some left over and used it all over the car

Review

I got my cobra in July of 99 and haven't ever looked back. It handles great, has the perfect sound, and more then enough power to put those "other muscle" cars in their place. I've put 42000 miles on it and havent had a single problem from it.


Favorite Features

Tons of horsepower to start with and its easy to get a whole lot more.


Suggested Improvements

Might as well be a two seater...

Review

I purchased a 1999 Cobra and I have had nothing but problems with it. Now cars can have problems, but neither the Dealer nor the manufacturer are willing to deal with the car. It's headed for arbitration with a total of 12 problems including: powerstearing failure (while driving) Brake failure (while driving) mulitple interior things breaking A/C fails the first time it is used Recalled 3 times. And that is just the beginning....


Favorite Features

Acceleration, and looks


Suggested Improvements

SERVICE, it's a 33K car, enginear it correctly,service it like one, look at Lexus and BMW, take a few notes and get it right.
