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


Review

Well, after owning 3 Stangs prior to this one I had high expectations. It's best described as a love-hate relationship. I love the car, the power and the road respect you get from simply owning a Cobra but I HATE to drive it. The seat is a little too bolstered (I am only a 6', 190lb guy), the clutch is so stiff it gives my leg an occasional cramp and the shifter is clunky and difficult to reach. It's a shame, so much effort went into performance which was way overdue...but didn't put any effort into the ergonomics. Is it too much to ask for power and comfort? Oh, and the paint sucks. Already had in in the paint booth 3 times fixing factory crap.I guess so. Hope they do better in 2007


Best Features

Power!!! Looks, parking lot compliments, sounds killer with a good exhaust, cheap to make crazy power.


Worst Features

Tranny, clutch, seat, warranty and paint.

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


Review

Best performance bang for the buck! I recently dyno'ed the car and it put out 398 horsepower to the wheels, which equates to about 460 at the flywheel! Ford underrates the power of these cars! - Great power - Good handling - Great engine - Backseats - Good amount of trunk space (seats fold down) Where else can you get a car with well over 400 horsepower for under $34K?


Best Features

Engine. Good seats. Lots of trunk space.


Worst Features

Interior needs some "dressing up"

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


Review

Great value for the money. This car will give 'Vette owners, including the Z06ers, nightmares, if they don't know how to drive their car-and there are many of those out there. Priced about 15k less than a Z06 too. Overall build quality, fit and finish of ugly plastic could be better. Next generation should improve in these areas.


Best Features

Great power/handling combination. Good standard sound system. Subtle looks-no garish graphics or 3 foot high spoiler on the back. Driver's seat can be adjusted to fit anyone comfortably.


Worst Features

SVT/Ford need to fix this MAJOR problem: engine cuts off during braking/downshifting causing loss of power to steering and braking (Deadly)
