2002 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car used in 2006 with only 24,xxx miles on it. Now there are 92,xxx and it is still amazing. I have only had one issue besides the routine things (oil change, brakes, etc) and that was the alternator. I had bought the extended warranty thus even that was covered. I chose this car for its 5 star crash rating, the powerful engine (use to have a 4 cylinder), nice under hood layout, and, of course, looks. It is a mustang after all. Only issues I have with the car is the poor gas mileage and the not so smooth ride.


Best Features

Love the performance, I can do whatever I want on the highway with no issues and pull any hill I need to. Sound system is great! The front passengers have all the room they need. Handles well in good weather.


Worst Features

Rear wheel drive poor in rain / snow / ice. You can feel every bump in the road (but that's what you get with a sports vehicle).

2002 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My husband bought this car for me to replace my tired Mazda 626. The 626 was very well-equipped, so the Mustang falls short on a number of "extras". The biggest problem is the hard ride. It's fine on smooth pavement, but who has that to drive on any more? The clutch is also extremely tricky. I am accustomed to driving various vehicles with standard transmissions, but mastering this one is very difficult. My spouse has the same problem. I love the look of the car, but have had to equip the driver's seat with a hospital-quality wheelchair seat cushion to avoid having a splitting pain in my neck when driving.


Best Features

Styling. Handling. Power.


Worst Features

Better, more comfortable seats. Better suspension.

2002 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I own a 2002 ford convertible mustang which I bought in 2007 april but since then I've never enjoyed my ride. This car is full of vibrations. I took to many good local dealers but they couldnt fix it and finally wanted to go to the Tulsa Ford showroom but these people, even though they do not have any work, doesn't bother to look at my car. This is the experience I had with a FORD vehicle.

Review

Driving the Mustang is fun. I usually get 24-29 mpg; lower for strictly city driving. Other than regular maintance I am at about 160,000 miles and recently had my first car incident with a u-joint replaced. I added a sun roof when I made the purchase and am passing it down to my son!


Best Features

Looks good!

2002 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car new in 2002 and have not had any major problem since. The engine check light came on at 30000 miles, I took it to the dealer and they replaced a sensor at no cost since it was still under warranty. I now have 90000 miles on it. It runs fine with basic maintenance such as oil changes, air filter and I change my fuel filter every 20000 miles. The car doesn't handle well in wet weather. Otherwise it drives very smooth and very reliable with very little repair cost (still on original battery, alternator, clutch, AC). I would buy another Mustang.


Best Features

Nice exterior and interior.


Worst Features

Use better material for seats.
