2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Have been the only owner of this car and it has given me the most pleasure of any vehicle I've owned. It's fun when the sheer power puts you back in your seat. Only take her out on weekends since my other car's a hybrid.


Favorite Features

Power, handling. It's just a sexy machine


Suggested Improvements

Interior could use an update but other than that It's almost perfect

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Great car to drive. Unreal power. Miles ahead of the '98 Cobra I had before this one. K&N cold air kit, Bassani cat-back exhaust and a Predator computer tune really improved the already good power.


Favorite Features

Engine and the Mystichrome paint.


Suggested Improvements

The interior could use updating. More power.

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

From when you first step on the gas pedal till your rational mind lets off the throttle the power never ends. But be careful, the tires will go up in smoke just as easily because of the amazing amount of torque. The handling is superb and smooth because of the independent rear suspension. The seats provide great lateral support and have adjustable thigh and side bolstering. Great V-8 Supercharged power. The best Mustang ever that can compete with vehicles that cost thousands of dollars more. Driving the Cobra puts a smile on my face every time I drive it or just look at it.


Favorite Features

The DOHC Supercharged V-8 torque and horsepower and six-speed Tremec transmission. What else can you say...390 underrated ponies under the hood. Even though the Cobra is a little nose heavy, it is amazingly neutral in the handling department.


Suggested Improvements

The paint and fit & finish could be better. The interior has not changed a lot since 1994, but still isn't that bad. All in all, SVT & Ford has built a great car.

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I have owned several mustangs, the last of which was a 1999 GT which I heavily modified. That car (the GT) was faster than my current Cobra but do not fool yourself. John Colletti and SVT have a winner here. The old Mustang goes out on a high note. If you want a kick in the pants mustang with factory perfection and reliability, this is the car. As far as the editor rating on this car (6.7), the editor is an idiot. You cannot touch the attitude or performance and be able to take your (small) kids along for anywhere near the cost.


Favorite Features

The engine baby. It looks as good as it runs. The builder signatures are a nice touch. THe SVT emblems and features add as well.


Suggested Improvements

AFS wheels in CA offers replica wheels which are 10.5" wide rather than the stock 9". I added those to the rear with 315/35/17 tires and they look bada**. Also, SLP has a killer cat-back exhaust whick is quiet around town but sounds full open at throttle.

Review

Rear bumper and wheel housing weak. Electric windows squeak. Interior not well insulated - road & engine smell strong.


Favorite Features

Very Fast & Very Fun.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the build quality. Improve the handling. Keep increasing the horses....to out- perform Chevy.
