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


Review

BEWARE of the 2002-2003 GT Mustang Deluxe....it has an engine problem that the engineers "are still working on" it idles VERY rough unless you have the air conditioner on- then it settles down. Since you can't drive in the winter with the air on..it is a problem.The service dept. says it is with all standard GT's of those years. It is building up carbon...so take it in!!!!!!!!! They are replacing sensors and such,,,but to no avail! Mine is not the only one!!!BEWARE!!!!!you will hate it. it is junk. I bought it at invoice and am upset down by 10,000. They do not hold ANY value...BEWARE!!


Best Features

IT looks good, buy runs terrible!!! Mach 1000 stereo is the only way to go.


Worst Features

don't sell until the problems are fixed. Ford knew of the problem when I bought mine, there should be a law against selling models with known problems in the service dept.

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


Review

I bought this car as a "fun" car. I find it a pleasure to drive, especially with the top down. The V6 is one of the best in it's class and has plenty of pep.If you want to race, buy the GT.Yes it has inadequate storage, that's not what it's built for! It's built for pleasure, not hauling the family.For the price,I don't think you can find a better looking, more reliable convertible.People might immediately shout Sebring.My answer, buy a Sebring if you LOVE your service mangager, because you'll be seeing alot of him.Been there, done that!Ford has done a good job of putting all of the essential options into an affordable package.


Best Features

Sound and reliable. Plenty of pep. Great sound system. Looks good, handles well. Fun to drive!


Worst Features

My only complaint are the seats. They haven't changed since 1984 (or maybe earlier?). They definitely could be more comfortable. They're not UNcomfortable, they just could be better.

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


Review

Bought a 2002 V6 auto a week ago w/just under 25K miles, and it's awesome! I didn't need a car that goes 0-60 in 4 seconds, but this car still passes plenty of "sporty" cars without much effort. Plus, it's fun to drive and looks good, too. I usually buy imports, and just hope that F.O.R.D. doesn't really stand for Fix Or Repair Daily! So far, it hasn't missed a beat. Smooth ride, and not bad on gas.


Best Features

Smooth shifts, passing power, driving position.


Worst Features

The view out the windshield shows a lot of hood - could stand to be redesigned. Also, suspension doesn't handle crossing train tracks all that well. Other than that, it's a great car.

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


Review

I bought this car for the V-8 power and excitement. The leather and power was just to show off for the girls. It leaks in the car wash. It's noisy as all (blank) due to the flowmasters. It has cowl shake. The rear suspension is crap, but it puts the power down, and that's the point. It's loud and proud, it's fast, and it eats the lunch of most challengers, especially those snippy hondas. If I wanted nice, I would've gotten an Acura.


Best Features

4.6 V-8 with flowmasters.


Worst Features

Please God re-do the interior. Either slam the suspension to go all out sport or do it comfortable like your mom's taurus, in between just gets annoying. More colors.
