My FORD- "fix or repair daily"
By msnurse on

Vehicle

1996 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe

Review

Overall, I thought I had made a great purchase until I passed 30k--when the warranty was no longer valid. At 32k the transmission blew apart --thanks to a defective converter (By the way, I don't drive like a maniac--and really take good care of my cars). Needless to say, I was out almost $2k. I have just been informed that my engine needs to be rebuilt at only 100k miles. After speaking with other Ford owners, this is a common problem. Very frustrating. I have been VERY disappointed with the repair costs and problems. This car is going to the junk yard this week. Can promise you that my next car will be anything but a Ford.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive when it actually ran-- which seems to not be often

Suggested Improvements

New engine design, new transmission design, new design team.... Better warranty. More complete service.
