Great car...had mine for 6 years, bought it when it had a little over 100k needless to say i added another 150 k on it. Engine is extremely reliable as long as you maintain regular oil changes.
Only bad side of this car is weather!!! be very careful in the rain and snow, do not drive over 30 miles an hour in the rain and park it when it snows.
I really miss my car. Someone just hit and ran me in a head on collision. It looked like a small fender bender but after the mechanic looked at it they said the bar the transmission is attached to really bent. Making this car totaled. I am so sad. I loved it. Bought it new and drove it for 10 years. Would have lasted forever had this not happened. And it was beautiful. I like it much better than the newer models. Sad, sad, day for me.
One button convertible, steering was impeccable, exterior design, when top was down I could load a huge couch into my car, I brought ten pieces of patio furniture piled on my car with no problem, color (yellow), easy to clean, quality paint
Radio button print wore off, rearview mirror kept falling off, after 100,000 miles the car would shake when braking at 60 mph, ragtop got a little rusty in areas.
At least the car look good. My wife
bought this car before we were married
and as soon as she could she pawned it
off on me. It doesn't handle well. My
road to work is twisty and I had always
enjoyed seeing what my car can do on
it. The mustang handles like a brick.
On the inside, the seats are not very
good on the lower back and the
seatbelts tend to turn in such a way
that when you close the door the buckle
jams the door and cuts into the
paneling. All in all I have not
enjoyed this car.
When I purchased my mustang in 1997 I
was told by many people that I would
not be happy owning a Ford. Of course
they said 'found on roadside dead'
etc. I loved the way the car drove
and I six years later still love it.
So far the only things I have had to
do in six years is change the oil, the
tires and the battery. NOTHING has
broken, the radio, A/C and top all
still work fine as well. Yes, there
is some leaking now. Also surpising
is my gas milage. Its a 6cyl manual
so it should get good milage. It gets
GREAT milage. 32 highway 25 city. I
could not be happier.
Good gas milage.
Great sporty Driving.
Reasonable but not overwelming power.
Heating/AC controls are not as good as
other cars. I have never really liked
them, not sure why. I figure many 2
doors have this problem, but the doors
are quite long, bad it tight parking.
