2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

What can I say.. Ford finally made the no-frills GT we've always wanted. The emphasis is on under-stated looks, torque and exclusiveity. Spend 5 grand on a supercharger and you've got yourself the ultimate sleeper. Vette owners beware...


Favorite Features

Exahaust note, SVO Intake, red brake calipers.


Suggested Improvements

With the exhast and intake mods, I think even Ford was a little disapointed that it made only 15 more horses than the stock GT. That said, the torque is signficantly more stout than the GT and there is an obvious seat-of-the-pants difference between the two.

2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Love the RWD and V-8 power. Don't get the V-6. I like the firm leather seats. Headroom is poor, but expected in a Mustang. Averaged 18-20 MPG over last two years on mixed HWY/city use. Good sound system in the GT. No major problems with the car in the first 36K miles other than the CD player jamming discs. Dealer fixed w/ no problems.


Favorite Features

260 HP, 6-CD sound system, leather


Suggested Improvements

Lose the hood scoupe, it decreases visibility and doesn't look that great.

2001 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

2 words....Adrenaline Rush. This is the most fun car I have ever driven. A combination of class and power.


Favorite Features

Speed sensitive steering/suspension. Ability to turn traction control off. Suede/Leather seats w/ the Cobra emblem embroidered and the 6 CD changer in dash.


Suggested Improvements

Car should come stock with a stainless steel exhaust. Early cobras had that feature.

2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

We bought the car new and 8 hours later, I had my first speeding ticket. What a fun car to drive...with a radar detector. Interior fit and finish is lacking and the convertible top allows any and all outside noise to enter, but that's where the Mach stero system shines. It drowns out all the outside noise while you put the car through it's paces. The V8 provides plenty of zip. We had a 6 cylinder version of the 1996 Mustang for 4 years and it struggled to get out of it's own way. In my opinion, the 6 cylinder version of this car is a big waste of your money. Be sure to include an extra $250 for a good radar detector.


Favorite Features

By far this car shines with the top down on a sunny day and the stereo turned way up.


Suggested Improvements

Better interior fittings.

2001 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've owned a 2001 Mustang Convertible for about a year now and I must say it is a vast improvement over the boring Front-wheel drive sedan I owned before. The power with the V6 is adequate, though not stellar--but a few aftermarket performance parts can solve that problem. The car is also surprisingly sturdy, handling a collison with a toyota pick up with minimal damage. By far its best attribute is its agility.


Favorite Features

agility, aftermarket potential


Suggested Improvements

a better interior, more power for the base V6
