2002 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I finally don't need a family car and bought an 02 GT with 100K miles at age 50. It needed a little TLC. I added a radio, new COP's, a gear shift knob, + more. I love this car. I get better than 27mpg on the highway and 23-24 combined. The engine is smooth and has a higher power-to-weight ratio than any car or truck I have had. It took me a couple of months to tame this Pony. I changed the real seals, bearings, left axle, and c-clips. One c-clip broke and ground up inside the left axle causing that bearing to fail. The car is definitely a sports car. I have a Flowmaster catback and Nexen 3000 tires with Bullet rims. Other drivers taunt me on the road. I just smile and enjoy.


Favorite Features

Great looks, great stereo, great sound, nice looking interior, dependable engine, easy to modify.


Suggested Improvements

Add space between the stereo volume knob and the bezel.

Review

This is such a cool car! A perfect blend of everything. Great styling, very reliable, comfy, big sound system, cool wheels, high modding potential, and it is quite quick. With the new Borla exhaust I added it now has incredible muscle car sound! For my first car I would have it no other way.


Favorite Features

Sound system, cool wheels, cool looking hood scoop.


Suggested Improvements

No improvements it is awesome.

2002 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Simple put i'v wanted this car since i was ten years ole. A couple months before i was old enough to drive i finally bought her. I got a 2002 mustang gt 5 speed manuel. It's a beatiful shade of red that goes perfectly with the edgy body style it boosts. I bought her with 62,000 miles. In the 4 months I had her i already dropped 3 grand into her with tasteful modifications. i put slp headers, bassani cat back which sounds awesome. tint in the back and chrome salean 5 star lug wheels. Also a couple other chrome accesories and looks sick as hell. Car turns heads everywhere i go. I get so much attention for it and i love her. sound system sounds good and performance is great. Great car.

2002 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I previously owned a 02 6cyl mustang and bought an 02 8 cyl mustang with the 5-speed transmission about a year after selling my 6 cyl. I got it when it had around 100,000 miles and have performed only routine maintenance in 10,000 miles. I was told it had the clutch replaced right before I bought it. I would recommend getting the 8cyl if you have the opportunity as it has been much more fun to drive. The trim was better shape than I would have expected for 100,000 miles. No leaks or rattles however my steering wheel and gear shifter were badly worn. I'm not sure if this was from the previous owner or if this is common. Mach 460 Stereo has great sound. Driver's seat is also comfortable.


Favorite Features

Great fun to drive and I liked the looks. It had aftermarket Flowmaster exhausts when I bought it, which I didn't originally like but would now highly recommend. The sound really adds to the experience of driving the car. Premium version was well optioned with leather and nice wheels.


Suggested Improvements

The only issue I have with the car is the transmission. I changed the fluid but it is hard to shift into every gear except 5th and sometimes will momentarily not go into a gear. I wasn't really expecting perfect from a 100,000 mile car and this hasn't caused me any big problems.

Review

I bought this car new in '02 at a dealership where I worked as a tech. I have put 192k miles on this car with regular maintenance and a few performance tweaks. I still get 25 mpg with a 3.73 rear end gear and a five speed manual. The engine is as strong as when it was new. The only parts that failed outside of normal wear was the 6CD changer (twice) and the brake hydroboost unit which was still under warranty at the time. It has always been a solid, predictable performer. This is a sports car. It rides, handles, and acts like a sports car. It is not a dragster or a luxury boat. Long trips will hurt passengers.


Favorite Features

Clean, simple cockpit that is user- friendly. The interior is very tough. Very tight car.


Suggested Improvements

Ford finally wised up and offered lower-ratio rear-end gearing to take advantage of the Triton engine's higher rev-range. Tweaking the programming to squeeze out a few more ponies would have been nice. Perhaps a tighter short-throw shifter.
