I bought this Stang in January of 2004 and have had no problems whatsoever. Tires wear fast, but with a car that looks like a Mustang, who cares? I love this car. I put Cobra rims on and have had no extreme tire wear since. Also with the installed Flowmaster dual exhaust it always gets confused for a GT. I would reccomend this car to anyone who likes to drop the hammer once in awhile and hear the exhaust scream.
I bought this car new with 8 miles on
it. @ 50 miles the tie-rod broke and it
cost me $70.00 for a alignment (non
warrenty) now the car has 118,324 miles
on it and it has well over $6k in

vehicle back in 1996. It was so much
fun to drive and very comfortable.
When the car hit 47,000 miles things
went sour. The head gaskets blew and
the car was out of commission for 2+
months while waiting for a new engine
to replace the damaged lower block. A
few months after that, the car was
recalled for this problem. Right after
that the a/c line broke. I had all the
repairs made at the dealer. Then most
recently, the engine blew again! I
could not believe it. This will make
the 3rd engine and it only has 108,000
miles. Based on my experience, this car
is THE money pit.
I bought my Stang new in 96, only had
one problem with it so far. Replaced
fuel pump under warranty at 1500 mi. No
abnormal wear and tear on any parts.
Changed front pads at 108,000 mi. and
still had 3/8 in. of lining left, still
have a 1/2 in. of lining on the rear.

I have had this car almost 2 years, it
was purchased for a work vehicle
because we got a good deal. I love the
great gas mileage and the performance,
but again there is the tire issue. But
luckily I have had great luck with the

problems other than regular

greatly suprised by this peppy little
I love the body style, and the fun you
have driving it.
I would like to see a wider interior
space, more comfort for long trips.
