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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

I love the power that this car puts out.


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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?
