2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This is my second Mustang. My first Cobra. I am in love with this car. It is a head turner and a blast to drive. I would recommend this car for the most bang for the buck.


Best Features

I love the power in this car. It is a total joy to drive.


Worst Features

Better shocks in the rear. Too much wheel hop.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The best car in the market at the price they sell for. A sports car with 390 HP for less than $35,000.00, WOW. Very fun to drive. This car attracts attention everywhere I go. Yes, it turns a lot of heads in town. The Eaton supercharger sounds really nice when you punch it. That's what this car was made for. And finally, a Mustang has to be the most upgrade friendly car in the market.


Best Features

Supercharger, embroidered Cobra on suede seats w/ Italian leather. Terminator package i.e. hood, spoiler. Strong & loud motor.


Worst Features

None. It's an SVT. SVT cars spoil the driver.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

It's a lot of fun to drive, GREAT performance, and I didn't buy it for fuel economy. The seats are comfortable, and have lumbar support, and adjustments to the sides of the seating surface and the back rest, but don't try to get an adult in the back seat for a long trip, car seats don't fit well either.


Best Features

Supercharged V-8, 6 disc CD player.


Worst Features

They did, built the 2005.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I thought some long term appraisal was in order. Engine, clutch, transmission, drivetrain all holding up well considering my driving. Clutch is still stiff but my g/f doesn't complain a bit. It's somewhat unrefined but you can get decent gas mileage if you choose. It rides decent especially at 70, the seats are tight, they got better but they hold you in the corners. You can idle around town all day; just a regular car so it seems. It's a Mustang people with a great engine, pretty good drivetrain. You want to go fast cheap? This is it. You want old big engine performance? You got it with especially with a few mods. Get 26 mpg on highway or see the gas gauge go down. Your choice. I like choices.


Best Features

What can I say -- #1 is the engine, get a smaller pulley, k&n, exhaust, you have about 440 rear wheel hp docile as can be. Garage guys can get much more, you better buy some better tires though.


Worst Features

A better shifter, a bit wider driver seat, refinement on the IRS and/or a choice. A lighter aluminum or carbon fiber hood. Better tires. A CD player with mp3 capability.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Has had some performance upgrades to bring horsepower to 600+ rwhp. Car is a show stopper in looks and seems indestructible in terms of reliability. It is an awesome experience to drive.


Best Features

Car is zinc yellow with chrome Bullitt wheels and is just gorgeous. Nothing I don't like about it.


Worst Features

Solid axle - no independent rear suspension. A good strong automatic would help make the car more controllable during hard acceleration.
