2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)
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
Power!!! Looks, parking lot
compliments, sounds killer with a good
exhaust, cheap to make crazy power.
