1999 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible


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.

Best Features

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

Worst Features

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
