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.
My favorite features are no cup holders. Why do you need those in a muscle car that huals? the bucket seats are awesome as well
My car is a dark green, 1990 Mustang
5.0 LX. The engine was built by Budd
Moore Racing, and it looks and sounds
very nice. About one month after I
bought my car, my transmission started
messing up. When the transmission went
bad, I had Greenville Transmission
Clinic in SC rebuild it. All in all,
it cost me $1,411.30. Now the AOD has
been rebuilt w/ a high-performance
rebuild kit, new torque converter. Now
I love driving my green coupe around
town barking gears (I have spun my
wheels when shifting around 40 mph).
HP: 300+ (not had it dynotested yet)
Mileage: under 70k
Weight: around 2800k I think
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.
5.0, 5 speed, ease of finding parts,
the aftermarket parts that are available
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
Power and looks.
