1997 Ford Mustang Coupe GT 2dr Coupe


Review

If you keep up with the maintenance this car is great. Perfect for the performance-minded looking for a new toy. Overall good car.


Favorite Features

Stock power is nice. Potential power is very nice


Suggested Improvements

Improvements you can make yourself, if you own this car, are some PI parts for your NPI4.6, and a nice cobra bumper/wheels. You'll be in heaven.

1997 Ford Mustang Coupe GT 2dr Coupe


Review

I love this car! Handles great, pretty good acceleration and beautiful exterior! Big trunk small opening though. Front seats very comfortable, rear seats lack leg room. I love to fire it up and listen to it growl, sounds awesome when you step on it and it screams. Lots of after market parts make this a fun father son project! Go American muscle!


Favorite Features

Quick, light weight, good handling awesome track car!

Review

This car has been my nice weather car since I bought it back in 97. The performance is what you'd expect from a Mustang and fuel economy was actually good. I put a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust and Hypertech power programmer on the car and is much faster than stock. The reliability has been good except for some minor brake and radiator problems. Probably spent around $600 in repairs since owning it. I really like the styling on the interior and the front seats are pretty comfortable. the manual trans has been good and no problems, just replaced clutch once. Overall very satisfied with my purchase and hope the 06 Mustang I'm buying this spring will be just as good a car as this one.


Favorite Features

The engine of course. Fast sprints to 60, awesome donuts in parking lots and very reliable engine as well. The radio is decent for being stock. i like driving the 5 speed, it's a lot of fun. Flowmaster exhaust, a fairly cheap upgrade, makes car rumble really nicely.


Suggested Improvements

Not much negative comments to say. The brakes seem to wear a little fast but that's basically it.

Review

Mustang is a great car to work on. Upgrading performance is easy and very inexpensive. Eibach 2" lowering springs made it able to handle any turn at 60 miles per hour, for only $375 installed. The sound on these mustangs are unmistakeable, with a cheap 2 chamber flow master exhaust. Free up the ponies and let them ride. Its a sin to have a stock Mustang GT. Better all around compared to my 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor. Wish I still had the Mustang.


Favorite Features

Performance.


Suggested Improvements

None. For the price range.

Review

Lot's of fun to drive! A great sports car feel for the customer on a budget. Poor leg and head room for back seat passengers.


Favorite Features

0-60 is always a thrill in the mustang. Ford gives you all of the features you need to be happy as you drive.


Suggested Improvements

MORE REAR SEAT ROOM!!! 6 inches more would be great.
