1996 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

Performance is fun. especially with the 5 speed.


Worst Features

Buy Cobra rims to eliminate tire wear.

1996 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe


Review

I was so excited to purchase this
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.


Best Features

Body style


Worst Features

under the hood.

Review

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.
This car has been just awesome all the
way around.


Best Features

Gas mileage is great, stereo system is great.


Worst Features

Could have used more horsepower, but I don't have a heavy foot so no big deal there.

Review

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
engine it has 90,000 and not any
problems other than regular
matienance. All together I have been
greatly suprised by this peppy little
machine.


Best Features

I love the body style, and the fun you have driving it.


Worst Features

I would like to see a wider interior space, more comfort for long trips.
