2004 Ford Mustang Convertible Premium 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first Mustang, first convertible and first V6 ! I really wanted a convertible, and it really is great ! You actually feel good sitting in and driving the car, and it is spunky enough for a sports car. Really enjoyable, the interior is really pretty, all leather. My 8 year old girl iis overjoyed, and myself being 50 I really have a great time driving it, with or without the top down. Used to have a 5 liter Capri back in the 80s, and although that had a lot more power this newer Mustang is much more comfortable to drive. Gas mileage for this V6 is pretty good !

2004 Ford Mustang Convertible Premium 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Rides like a buckboard, reasonable handling, mileage, and the Mach stereo is a beast! If you don't like a Mustang convertible, let's look at your choices. An older Cavalier, a Sebring or LeBaron that will likely have numerous issues, a costly BMW or a Porsche that is likely beyond costly for similar year and miles. It's the only choice out there under $12,000 with low miles.


Favorite Features

Top down, Mach stereo up.


Suggested Improvements

There are none. Ford did a pretty good job. Yes, the car has issues, but for the price it can't be beat. Door panels are below average. Just for looks back seat, it's a Mustang, not a Lincoln. Deeper rear end gears - like 3.55 would solve many issues, but this car isn't about speed, it's about fun!

Review

My black Mustang rides like a buckboard, the leather seats are flat, the interior door panels and console are cheap. It's a Mustang for crying out loud. It's an icon, a legend. The Mach 6 CD am-fm stereo is simply amazing. Your choices for a convertible are rather limited. A Chysler Sebring, a Pontiac that they quit making, a BMW with a price tag over two times any similar Mustang. The Mustang is the only logical choice. Smooth and easy top operation. The trunk holds what it needs too. Golf clubs, baseball bags, tennis rackets, groceries, 2 medium suitcases. No its not big, its a sports car, not a luxo boat. The people that complain about this car are ill, please see a doctor.


Favorite Features

Top down, Mach stereo UP, cruising through town to run some errands or tooling down the interstate. 22 mpg around town so far, isn't bad to me.


Suggested Improvements

I can't think a thing. I think Ford did a wonderful job. We all make trade offs, set priorities. Overall they put their best foot forward for the price in 04. If you have kids, are too big, are worried about mpg or need a smoother ride, buy a car that fits your needs. Don't speak ill of a Mustang!

2004 Ford Mustang Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

We had a choice between a few beautiful 'stangs and bought this '04 40th anniversary edition. Fully loaded with a Mach stereo system. I upgraded the air filter, plugs and oil which made a major difference. I run at least 25-28 mpg, even going 80+mph. It handles very well, drove through a wy. winter storm and stuck to the road. Gotta love my 3.9L!


Favorite Features

The way the car makes you feel like your one with it. The Mach stereo system is a blast with the top down


Suggested Improvements

Driving lights would be the only thing that would have made it complete

2004 Ford Mustang Convertible GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Too good looking to pass up, always wanted a muscle car. A blast to drive and love the burble of the exhaust. Agree with other comments that 1st is too short and 5th too tall. Gas mileage seems to vary wildly for no particular reason. from 11-17 around town. Prehistoric technology that makes me smile.


Favorite Features

Exhaust note as you wind up through the gears with the top down.


Suggested Improvements

Front seats (comfort) head restraints (a joke), interior panel fit, storage (none)pack lightly- say 1 small overnight bag. the interior although attractive and well assembled, is so poorly designed that if you are not wearing it, you're not taking it.
