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.


Best Features

260 HP, 6-CD sound system, leather


Worst Features

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

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


Review

The 2001 Ford Mustang is a very fun car
to drive. The 3.8L sedan provides a
great balance between power and fuel
economy. Handling is great, comfort,
although tight for large/tall people, is
good. Very nice design inside and out.

The only complaint is that the interior
is a little heavy on the plastic. The
inside of the door feels a little "soft"
due to the plastic. Overall, however,
super car. No regrets with the purchase.


Best Features

Interior design (dash especially), gray interior, exterior design (hood, rear spoiler), etc.


Worst Features

"Beef up" the interior to make it heftier.

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


Review

I leased the GT, the ending up with it
over a Chevy Z-28 in a decision of
economics (The Z-28 was $5K more).
Having traded in a 1997 V-6. I had
some expectations. I expected the 4.6
litre V8 to perform better than the
Chevy V6, but I really had to rev it
up because the low-end torque wasn't
there, which in turn exposed the
laziness of the 4-speed automatic when
commanded to downshift (even
manually!). Overall, the GT was a good
American muscle car, but lacked some
of the really hard-core attributes,
road-handling felt soft and and
sometimes not sure-footed when pressed
hard. Casual drivers would get a kick
out of it.


Best Features

The Mach 460 stereo with in-dash 6-CD changer was a highlight, and the while the hood and side scoops were annoyingly fake, they looked great on the Mineral Grey color that snapped my attention away from all other cars on the lot. (I had one of the first with this color in the area.)


Worst Features

Bigger gages. Better yet, gages that moved when things happened. The voltmeter and oil gauge never moved when the car was running. The interior needed more sportiness, and a sunroof option. Most of all, the transmission needs to be more responsive and the V8 needs more low-end torque.

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


Review

I've had the Mustang for almost 3 years
and I have enjoyed it. I have read
reviews in consumer magazines that I
think are too crtitcal. If you buy a
Mustang that is what you are looking
for, not a Toyota, BMW or Saab. I
haven't been disappointed with its
performance. Unfortunately, like so
many US manufactured vehicles, I have
had mechanical problems in the first 3
years. The engine mounts were lose when
I picked it up, the fuel pump died and
the battery lost its charge. The
problems were covered under the
warranty including the tow to the
dealership for repairs. It didn't turn
out to be that big an problem for me
because I have a truck too.


Best Features

8 cylinders and 260 horse power at a reasonable price and with good gas mileage.


Worst Features

The clutch is stiff.

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


Review

This was my first Ford product. I was
lured in by the 0% financing and its
great looks. I always drive V-8's and
demand rear-wheel drive. The Mustang
had everything I was looking for. I
did have some fit and finish issues and
I wish the interior didn't have so much
plastic! I sold it after 2 years due
to a job relocation. I was barely able
to pay off my lien! The depreciation
was unbelievable. I paid $25K new and
sold it for $17K two years later! Oh
yeah.....dealing with Ford Motor Credit
is a nightmare! Buyer beware!


Best Features

Throaty V-8....awesome stereo.....enough power to keep you more than happy!


Worst Features

Improve the fit and finish! Don't deal with Ford Motor Credit!
