2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

All around, the best of all pre-2005 Mustangs. 320hp but it can be short-shifted at 2000 rpms and can start off in 2nd without lugging; can skip gears. Excellent throttle response at all engine speeds. Ride is good, not harsh. Get 25-26 on hwy. Traction control is helpful; it is easy to spin the tires, especially on wet roads. I have one as my daily driver; it is less common than the standard GT; 60 more HP, better steering, larger brakes from the Cobra, subframe connectors, better (Tokiko) shocks. Noise is a little high, but not bad on the highway. Get the 5 speed manual; it's the only way to go! Will probably hold value better than all but the Cobra models.


Best Features

320HP; great V8 sound; manual transmission. Can short-shift at 2K rpm; no need to wind out the motor. This car still accelerates RAPIDLY in 3rd gear. Great passing power. Not as common as the GT. Good brakes, excellent mileage (25-26) for the power.


Worst Features

Smoother idle (common complaint); less-dark interior.

2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great car. Fun to drive and show. Great handling and appearance. I have had newer Mustangs before but this one is like driving on a cloud. I am in a wheelchair and the accessibility of the car is great. I can easily transfer and place the wheelchair behind the seat. Easily adaptable to hand controls. Would recommed this car to anyone. Love It!


Best Features

The comfort of the interior and the shake of the shaker as you cruise.


Worst Features

Great the way it is!

2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

What a fun car. Who needs a $50,000 Vette or a Cobra. For the money and the power, you can't go wrong.


Best Features

The Shaker Hood Scoop!


Worst Features

None!

2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This car is a blast from the past. Certainly not a German car inside. However, when the Audi S4 or BMW M3 pull up next to you at a light, fear nothing! Nice 60's muscle car sound.


Best Features

Head snapping standard power, shaker hood scoop, overall performance, Mach 460 stereo


Worst Features

Get rid of rattles in the interior. Need a little more back seat legroom.

2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

You know now that I think about it the car is not all that great I hate it. This new type of Mustang is a mok of the old 1968 and 1969 mustang boss hoss and 302. After seeing what the old mustangs look like I think when the spring of 2005 ends I'm returning it for a Dodge turbo Neon.


Best Features

none its like a toy point blank. my old trans am was faster theis new mustang and better on gas also.


Worst Features

If you are goijng to make a reborn of a old classic make look like a real classic with some chrome on it. Its looks like a cheap match box car.
