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

Review

Transmission problems, grind 1-2 shift and 3-4 shift when cold. CD's sticking in 6 disc player. Water leaks around windows(convertable). Premature carpet wear around accelerator pedal. Poor traction under hard acceleration (wheel hop). It seems that Ford chose to put a light duty transmission behind a 320 HP engine. Overall poor quality for a vehicle costing close to 35,000.00 dollars. Very little dealer support in addressing the problems. Traded it in for a 50th Anniversary Vette. I'll rate that after I drive it for a while.

Best Features

Engine performance. The high reving dual overhead cam 4.6 sounds and performs great. The audio, Mach 460, sounds great also although sometimes the cd's stick in the player. Corners well and is a blast to drive.

Worst Features

Impove the rear end traction (IRS) and upgrade some of the interior amenities. Install a wear pad along side of the accelerator pedal so that the carpet will outlast the car payments. Beef up the transmission.
