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


Review

All this car has gave me is troubles.
I thought a Cobra can be floored once
an awhile? But all it did was crack
the head, gasket leak, and throttle
body defects. I had to take it back to
the dealer which gladely fixed it but
for me to come back. I would say it
has kick ass power, but lacks the
quality I paid for it.

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


Review

The Cobra is a high performance sports
car, but, when driven sanely, is a nice
ride, very reliable, and a lot of fun.
I drive 120 miles/day commuting. I
have not had a single problem with this
car, which I have owned for over a year
now.

The car is docile and easy to drive,
but when you need the power and
handling, its there for the asking. (I
get a consistent 20.5 mpg. Premium
fuel is required.)

I did get new tires at 25,000 miles, as
the OEM were wearing fast and not good
in the rain. I had a '91 5.0 LS
Convertible that was equally reliable
for the 135,000 miles that I drove it.


Best Features

Performance, handling, sound system.

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


Review

After having owned numerous Mustangs
dating back to a classic 1965, the 2001
Cobra is the best Mustang Ford has ever
made. With 320 hp it is a blast to
drive and the independent rear
suspension is great for handling and
ride quality.


Best Features

My favorite thing is just driving the car. What fun, and it keeps you feeling young. You got to own one to appreciate it.


Worst Features

A lower rear-end gear ratio (3.55 or 3.73) would be good. And more horsepower would be great (I never can get enough), however it would definately be over kill for the average consumer.

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


Review

I traded in my 99 Cobra for the 01 & I
am happy with the results. The seats
feel so much better than my 99 Cobra
and they look great with the Cobra on
the suede part. The power is there, but
quality in fit & finish leaves a lot to
be desired. Rattling & wind noises are
just a standard option with Ford
products to date. The 2001 Cobra
definitely has the power, but lacks the
suspension & drivetrain of a true
performance car.


Best Features

Engine Performance & Seats


Worst Features

Do away with the 4x4 option (lower the car by 1-1.5 inches), Stronger Half- Shafts, Higher Gear Ratio as an option (3.37-4.30), T-56 Six-Speed Transmission. I know it looks like the 2003 Cobra has most of these, but no thanks to the $5,000 Dealer mark-up. ZO6 here I come.
