2003 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car in June 05 with 12k miles. Now has 115K miles. Mildly modded with CAI, exhaust, short shifter, MACH1 shocks, Ford C-Springs, white face gauges. Only repairs are front brake calipers (self-inflicted SCCA racing casualty) and alternator and battery...and four sets of tires. Consistently gets 25-26 mpg on highway. I want to get a new car but can't find anything that I like better than this one.


Favorite Features

Low-end V8 exhaust grumble. Goes happily in any direction that I point it.


Suggested Improvements

As nice as the systems are, don't use proprietary stereo components. I was able to add an Aux Jack to my MACH1000 but it took a computer/electronic geek to do it.

2003 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The V8 has plenty of pop and you get good gas mileage(Depending on how hard you want to drive it). It's the best car for your buck. 05 will be coming out next year and hope it lives up to the Mustang standards.


Favorite Features

I love the power that this car puts out.


Suggested Improvements

Needs to lower it and billet shift

2003 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Fun to drive. Handling is crisp and responsive. Power is unbelievably raw. Shifting is a tricky with the location of the overdrive. Visability is superb. Would have been great if there had been a hatch like my 74 Mach I. Drivers power seat takes a lot of adjustment to get it in a position that feels comfortable. When tilting the front of the seat up it lifts the entire seat. 6 CD stereo is dynamite, as is the throaty groan from the exhaust.


Favorite Features

Exhaust tones, the power of the 4.6, responsiveness of the steering, 6 Disc CD player with Mach sound, the looks, the traction control even on wet pavement, 4 wheel ABS.


Suggested Improvements

gated shifter, better power seat, functional scoop, color code center hood, scoop, and rear wing in a flat black.

2003 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Lots of fun for your dollar. The fit and finish are questionable, the seating position is too high, the seats themselves are absurdly uncomforable. On the plus side, the handling is good, and the mileage is respectable for a V-8. The combination of V-8 Power, plus a five-speed manual and rear wheel drive can't be beaten, especially given the price. If you like an old-school ride with modern reliability and amenities this car is for you. One word of advice: drive a Mach 1 before signing on the line. The Mach 1 addresses nearly every gripe I have with the GT.


Favorite Features

V-8, rear drive, 5 speed manual. In-dash 6-disc changer is cool too. Great styling.


Suggested Improvements

Resale value is terrible, interior materials and ergonomics are terrible. Seats and seating position are wrong for a sporty coupe. How about some stereo controls on the steering wheel?
