2002 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)
After owning a True Blue / Graphite
interior convertible for 6 months, we
haven't had any problems or trips to
the dealer for repairs. Performance
could be better, especially since other
brands are getting over 250HP from
smaller V6 motors (my 11-year-old
Accord is faster). However, since this
is a relatively economical model, we
don't expect as much. We just drove
800 miles on a recent trip, and it ran
smooth and strong on the freeway. It
was really great winding through wine
country in central CA with the top
down, warm sun, beautiful ride.
Drop top, higher resale than similar
competitors (Camaro, Firebird, Spyder),
very attractive finish that stands out.
Faster top-up action, trunk is almost
useless (too small), more performance
from the large 3.8L V6.
