1990 Ford Mustang Coupe LX 5.0 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

A better braking set up

Review

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.


Favorite Features

5.0, 5 speed, ease of finding parts, the aftermarket parts that are available


Suggested Improvements

Review

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 to drive.


Favorite Features

Power and looks.


Suggested Improvements

Large turning circle due to oversized wheels/tires. Poor reliability and durability.
