Fun car to drive. No major problems
since purchase. Has to many squeeks for
a car with 33K miles. The 5 speed
tranny can be cumbersome and sometimes
produces a clanking sound. The cabin is
very noisy and a lot of heat comes up
from the center console by the parking
break. Terrible seating position and
unacceptable adjustment for head rests
(I'm 5'10 and the headrest does not
reach my head. The plastic interior is
kind of cheesy and has sharp edges.
Exhaust sounds great and its an
eyecatcher in red but I wouldn't buy
Nice body style and decent power on the
top end, OK handling
Needs better seating and headrests,
better interior finish, smoother
transmission, reverse gear sync, more
bottom end power ,gripping cup holders,
better cabin insulation for noise and
transmission heat. Cut down the amount
of wind in the face when the top is
down. Add fold down rear seats.
I've had this great car for a year and
3 months now. It was two years old
with 32k miles and I have since added
another 22k miles. I have experienced
absolutely no problems and the car
runs great. A couple months back, I
got into a car accident but the car
proved to be incredibly resilient. The
car has never given me any reason to
feel unsafe, even at very high speeds
(upwards of 130 mph).
Convertible top, the compliments I
recieve from complete strangers, the
raw power, handling and reliability.
Please Ford, can you make the seats go
back a little further, especially the
passenger seat. On a long trip, I like
to let someone else take over the
driving, and sleep but the seat barely
goes down at all. Also, at times, the
cupholders interfere with the stick
I have owned my Mustang convertible for
two and a half trouble-free years. This
is a well made car for its level of
vehicle. I owned Cadillacs previously
and while this isn't a Caddy, it is
exactly what I wanted...a fun
convertible with lots of power! I have
found the Ford brand to be high quality
and the dealership to be very good.
Would highly recommend this car!
convertible top, speed and handling
make cup holders deeper so that drinks
don't interfere with shifting into
second gear, allow for the rear seats
to fold down so that there is more
trunk space if needed
I bought this car for my wife in 2000.
The next day went out and put 2 stage
flows on it to make it rumble. It
guzzles gas, is a little sluggish on
the bottom, but once it gets going it
is fairly fast. My Ford F150 has more
torque and is quicker off the bottom.
Overall, it is fun to drive, but is
very loud (ragtop)and the tranny has
already gone out. Thank god it was
under warranty. It has been a fun car,
but it rattles a lot and feels loose
with only 27,000 miles. I won't buy
Its a stang !
Buy a real sportscar, not a musclecar
that falls apart. My next car will not
be American made.
I bought this car used with 3200 miles
on it. Saved about $5k over a new
one. The car has been ok since I've
owned it, I have a couple problems with
it though. First is the throwout
bearing noise which Ford refuses to
admit to hearing. Second is a rear
chassis squeak that they of course
cannot hear neither. I rarely drive
the car now so these nuances are not
that big of a deal. I just installed
Steeda Sport Springs and I can't
believe the improvement. Ford should
have put these on from the start!
Otherwise, I love the exhaust note and
5 speed, 17" wheels, v8. hard to keep
under 100mph :-P
Fix the damn throwout bearing noise!
Install better springs and lower these
cars where they SHOULD be.
