This is my 3rd Stang, having previously owned an 86GT Hatch and an 86LX Cnvt. Bought the 99 with 11,000 miles in 2001. Currently has 145,000. This is a great car. Have had almost no mechanical problems. Great style and performance. Great exhaust sounds. Mach 460 radio/CD is great too. Convertible top works well. Tends to eat brakes. Headlight covers do fog over. Don't hit a bump in the middle of a turn or you'll find yourself in the next lane.
I bought my Mustang GT back in May of 01 and had the car till Feb of 08. This car was very well taken care of and I drove the car pretty crazy. The only reason I kept it running so well is because my uncle is a mechanic so most of the problem were fixed by him. I pumped regular gas in it but always used 10-30 oil. When it got to 75,000 miles I started using 10-30 high mileage mobil oil fully synthetic. That was the best oil I used. My car never leaked any oil because I always replaced any gaskets or seals that needed replacing. Changed all the normal wear & tear stuff. Always kept the car original except for the flowmasters. When I ran a smog check it had better results than a brand new Mustang
Handles great, convertible top
A little more power, better intake mainfold. That one that came with it had to get replaced. Better coil sensors, little bit more room in the inside
Overall this is a great car, but I
would recomend having another car for
the winter. The car has an extremely
responsive throttle, making the car
very quick. There are many affordable
aftermarket upgrades for this car. My
catalytic converters became stopped up.
And I've heard other other mustangs
having the same problem. Othe than that
I havent had anyproblems with the car.
If you buy a sports car that has a v8
engine you shouldnt expect to get great
gas mileage. I got about 14 miles in
the city and 18 on the highway(220),
but I was accelerating a lot so if you
dry the car easier you could probally
get about 250 miles on a full tank.
Excellent value for the money. Great
straight-line performance but handling
is fairly poor. Car sits too high and
handling suffers from lack of
independent suspension during hard
driving. Surprisingly good
reliability; owned one for over 3.5-
years and hexperienced only one
problem (convertible top motor died,
but replaced under warranty).
Great punch from smallish V8.
Awesome, loud exhaust sound.
