1997 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible


Review

i bought my first 97 and on the way home with it a fool ran a stop sign at about 50mph and t boned me. i woke up to smoke from the aiar bags but i was alive. i hurt my neck a bit from the air bag impact but i was fine. i went ahead and ordered me another one with 17 miles on it. i got the sports appearance package, the mach 460 sound system (SWEET) and an alarm system with a motion sensor. the company statement was if my baby was stolen and i still had the two fobs they would give me 5k!! i still have it and at 113k it still runs great. ive replace the suspension system but can still take those turns at 60mph easy.


Best Features

sound system,alarm system


Worst Features

offer information on how to take care of the top. its 150$ just for the material on the top. mine needs it bad

1997 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible


Review

This car has been so wonderful to drive. I bought the car with 34k miles. It now has over 120k and still runs great. The only major expense has been to replace the top. I would recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

Convertible top ease of operation.


Worst Features

Better cup holders for front and add some for the back seat. Need more leg room in the back seat too.

Review

Finally, finally we have a Mustang -- the car we always wanted. Bought used in almost perfect condition in and out. Drives sweet, looks fast. Wish there was a little more power in the standard but that is what the GT model is for. New to a convertible but lovin' it. Stereo sounds awesome, came with stock tape radio but put 240 watt Pioneer cd deck in and no need to say more. Mustangs hold their value and are reliable and are just a fun ride.


Best Features

Model design, stereo, dash, electric convertible top, handling, bucket seats.


Worst Features

A little more horses (power), leg room in back seat and that is all.

1997 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible


Review

Forty years ago, I wanted a Mustang convertible! But after the late 60's, I didn't like the body style. When it changed in 1995, I was determined once again to own one. This is probably the most "FUN" car I've ever owned, and its classic lines really get the looks. The interior could've used more thoughtful designing, and the gas mileage isn't the greatest, even with a six-cylinder automatic (not my first choice, but I bought it used). I love driving it and plan to do so for awhile yet....until I can afford the retro 2005!


Best Features

Low-slung design, grill, dash and instrumentation, roomy trunk (I'm a musician and carry a lot of equipment around).


Worst Features

Interior lighting desperately needed.

Review

This car is a real head turner - and without any non-factory adjustments. Great styling, a comfortable ride, and reasonable fuel efficiency make this car a great package. The 6 cylinder is a little tame, but makes for an excellent cruiser to take on long trips - especially along the beach or other scenic areas. Once you go topless, its hard to go back!


Best Features

The electric convertible. Easy to use and fast. Great sound system, even without the Mach.


Worst Features

More comfortable seats would be nice. The basic seat is just that, basic. A more ergonomic cockpit would be welcome as well. I find myself reaching for radio and climate controls.
