I've had my Mustang for a few years now. It's one of the most reliable vechiles I own. The performance is incredible. If you plan on getting a Mustang a 5.0 or a 4.6 or even the old 3.8 just plan on having money for a few things (tires and clutches.) I only put about 7,000 miles since I bought it and I'm due for a second set of rubbers and a new clutch.

I bought my mustang with over 100,000
miles on it, and it has been a great
car. When something does break, it is
easy to work on and parts are easy to
find. When looking for a Mustang to
buy, go with the 5 speed, 5.0 litre
coupe. The automatic has problems, as
does the convertible's top.

I had a nice 5.0 Mustang... except the
automatic transmission failed at 50,000
miles. Dealership told me it was out of
warranty, so I was out of luck.
$1500.00 later, I had a rebuilt
transmission. Except for that and a
problem with stalling (TFI ignition
module) and problems with the fuel pump
kicking out (impact switch in trunk)
and problems with leaking headlight
housings (common for Ford products) and
a few other problems, the car was great
