Cant beat this car for 20,000 dollars.
It may not be the fastest but it
faster then any other car for the
price. Why buy a prelude with 200
horse for more money then a mustang gt
cost. (by the way I beat a prelude
with my stock v6 stang, so take that
rear wheel drive is so much better
then front and great stock sound
system. (mach 460 6 cd in dash
More horse power is about all it needs
and if you want that buy a gt.
Have had continuos problems with wind
noise and the 3.8 engine causes
vibrations while stopped at
intersections. I have been told that it
has to do with stiff motor mounts and
is only a problem with the 3.8 liter
Over all, I am not a happy Mustang
This car is in my top 3 of cars I have ever owned. Didn't want to pay the extra insurance or worse gas mileage so I went for the 3.8 V6. I was worried it would be a wimp, not a chance. Rivals the power I have in my V8 Grand Marquis! Handled great on corners. Got 26 MPG consistently! Sold at 78k and never had a repair!
Power, hyper green color, style was a head turner, 26 MPG
God-awful in the winter! This was the only reason I got rid of it!
I bought the car used in 2005 when I started college w/a lot of miles already (now 177k). The car was an absolute blast to drive for the1st couple years. Even though it was a V6, the manual tranny gave it some gusto. Sadly after 2-3 years of owning it, I started noticing a ticking sound, which turned out to be a major exhaust leak, & eventually I had both exhaust pipes completely break off from the engine block. Then a couple years later, the major blow out came--I now have a blown piston rod, & the cost of the repairs is more than the car's value. Also had a headlight & all power features go out. So sad to see it go. I would've bought another if it wasn't for the major mechanical setbacks
Sporty handling; fun with manual
transmission (but was really hard to drive at 1st because the clutch is not hydraulic); attractive two-toned interior
Too many exhaust problems (was told this was a chronic problem with the '01 model); not built to last for someone with a lead foot
I got a 2001 Ford Mustang from a private owner. The previous owner didn't take care of it. Radio was broken so I had to replace it, she didnt do oil change for 4,000 miles left it. I bought the car at 156,577 miles. now has 159,000 everything is working fine. I love this one cuz of leather seats and its good fun to drive with windows down!
