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

Review

I wanted a convertible. I read the V-8 was a more reliable engine so I went with that. After rebate and dealer discounts, the Mustang was $2k LESS than a comparably equipped Miata. I feel safer in a larger car. I can pass other cars on the freeway quite easily now. Love driving with the top down and the exhaust sounds great. Not the best looking inside or out. And not the most reliable compared to Japanese. But thousands of $$ cheaper, so figured that would offset.

Best Features

Acceleration! The torque (302 lb.- feet) is awesome! The top down ride is like flying (almost). Handling is very good and so is sudden braking (which I've done a little bit).

Worst Features

The leather seats, though nice looking and retro, are uncomfortable over long periods. I replaced the drivers seat with a race seat which is actually an improvement. Interior is dull. I spiced it up a bit with some after market gizmos. Lose the plastic/fake hood & side scoops.
