This is a 2001 GT convertible, 5 speed that I purchased new at the end of the model year. Currently have 8000 miles on the car with no real problems. All driving has been commuting in Phoenix area and MPG is 18-20. Haven't taken any extended trips yet but expect highway mileage to be better. Fuel tank size kind of limits range but it would probably be a major task to re size it on a design this old.
Fun to drive with the 5 speed. Good looking, gets lots of compliments on the black on black color. Has a good sound although could be a little louder. For a convertible it is quiet due to the good quality lined top. Mach 460 sound system is nice.
Seats could be more comfortable. The traction control sometimes seems to 'intrude' prematurely but there is an override switch. Fit and finish is only average, some rough and unfinished bits here and there. But, for the price, a good value.
