1998 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car with 14,000 miles and
it has been perfect to 62,000. Amazing
handling with power. It sits much
nicer than the GM cars, and is more
economical as well. I can get 29 mpg
on straight highway driving. Town is
not nearly as good (around 18). Sweet
car, looks great, and insurance is not
that bad - just get married and turn
25! However I have the automatic and
would suggest a manual!


Best Features

Seats, the street appeal, performance


Worst Features

Sucks in snow/rain, at least 20mpg in town would be nice

1998 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe


Review

Where do I begin?
I just had to get rid of my Mustang
because I needed more room being a
musician and student, and I really
didn't want my car to get in the
middle of some war path of dents,
scratches, and high mileage. (I drive
a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport now.)
Although this car was a 6 cyl
automatic, it was still a Mustang, and
it was so much fun to drive.
The body style was awesome, and sure
it turned heads...I was
very "neurotic" about this vehicle; it
was my pride and joy. I would highly
recommend this car to any "car
obsessed" person like myself who can't
afford the high insurance on a GT. I
will own another one VERY soon.


Best Features

The first thing that comes to mind is the color, which was a deep garnet. Also, I loved the sound- great exhaust sound for a 6 cyl- (Factory headers). The 1998 was the last year Ford put headers on the 6 cyl Mustang- this one sounds better than a year 2003 6 cyl!


Worst Features

Gas. The gas mileage wasn't HORRIBLE, but what does anyone expect with a ride like this? It's not going to conserve gas like a Honda; it's a sports car.

Review

A very good handling car that is fun
to drive. Gas mileage is decent too,
around 24-28 mpg depending on the type
of driving you are doing.


Best Features

Power windows, locks, keyless entry, power seats, fold down back seats for extra cargo room if needed.

Review

A great car to drive when the weather
is nice but it does poorly snow or ice.


Worst Features

Quicker acceleration and a higher top speed so it doesn't get beat by GM pony cars.

Review

Ive had no problems what so ever with
my car, the 0 60 on this site says
9.9sec....well i can do mine in 7.9sec
stock so guess a grandpa was driving
this car when they tested it. It does
well for a 6, i have the 5 speed and
it does....cough....more than i
thought it would, lightin' em up
infront of some camaros and firebirds
makes em think I got an 8. But well
the 6 mustang can beat the 6 camaro
and firebirds anyway. But I love the
options for aftermarketing for the
mustang line.


Best Features

Performance is good even though people poke fun at the 6. Lower the car if you ever get it, lower it say...1 1/2in like i did, that thing sat like a 4x4 before i did that. only cost me 150$ too.


Worst Features

Less backseat space and more trunk for the sub youll be adding hehe otherwise im pretty happy with it
