2003 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
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.
V-8, rear drive, 5 speed manual.
In-dash 6-disc changer is cool too.
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?
