2001 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
What a great car. The car will do whatever you ask of it, from pushing it hard to weekly commuting. Bought used at 22K miles and selling it at 64K miles over 2.5 yrs. Seems to have above average resale value. Had thermostat fail which almost caused a melt down, but didn't do any damage. Overall, a fairly expensive vehicle to own/operate. Repair parts, brake pads/rotors, tires seem expensive due to low availability and more performance oriented design. Insurance wasnt bad but could be with questionable record. Questionable usage during winter, didnt have many problems driving in Michigan but certainly need to pick your battles and find alternate transportation/stay home a few days.
