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


Review

VA 41 yo 6'3 240lb MWM. I bought my new
torch red, 5spd Mustang in April for 13K
(newsp ad). It looks great, is
comfortable and handles well for the
money. Wind out the trany and get to 60
in about 7 secs. The tough attitude of
it's appearance/color seems to yield me
the right of way with other drivers, who
don't cut me off and let me merge in
traffic. Gas mileage was Ok but got
much better once I put the tires at 40
PSI, although a slightly rougher feeling
ride. The only problems have been that
the drivers seat belt was twisted at the
anchor, the repeat button only works for
MP3's, and the headrest doesn't adjust
to my height. The dealer fixed the 1st
problem, the others are standard.


Best Features

Appearance, Performance, Comfort, Gas Mileage (sports car), American Made.


Worst Features

Higher Adjustment for Headrest, Repeat Button for CD's, Larger (hidden) Change Holder, Roof Mounted Sunglass Holder.

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


Review

well, i've had this vehicle for 3months
now as a used vehicle 2003 with 30,000
miles. it's a beautiful car, has
adequate power, very nice ride, but i'm
now having to question the mechanical
dependability since i've had to put
this vehicle in the shop twice. first,
the fuel pump had to be replaced after
i noticed a "service engine soon"
light. 2 weeks later, another "service
engine soon" light. now, it's the
computer system that has to be
replaced. one more major repair, and
the vehicle goes back. thank goodness,
it's still under factory warranty!!


Best Features

cd player, sporty look, and the aerodynamics.


Worst Features

a little more power, more dependability, and then it will be a great car!

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


Review

I bought a brand new 04 V6 5 speed
Mustang as an alternative to a used car
because the price was right. It is a
very sharp car. Discounts and a new
body style on the horizon made this a
favorable deal. Wife thinks it's fun to
drive too - so much so that she
offered me her Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd.
in exchange. The novelty of the manula
transmission only lasted a week or two
and she wanted the Jeep back. for the
money - the Mustang is a car you can be
proud of as opposed to just another
econobox. I think it will resale easier
too.


Best Features

Timeless good looks- I know this is subjective but I really like the looks of this car and it's torch red paint. Also: Good handling. V6 power and fuel economy are good. A/C cools car very well.


Worst Features

Larger wheels / wider tires, better material for seat upholstery. standard traction lock differential, Slightly lower ratio rear end gears. Ford should also finish the dual exhaust on this car- it is dual up to the rear muffler and then becomes a single. It could use some exhaust sound

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


Review

I was the proud owner of the first '65
Fastback Mustang in San Bernardino
county in 1965. Said car was then
modified for SCCA track racing. This
2003 Mustang coupe was purchased as a
last vehicle type thing (70 years old)
just for fun and nostalgia. It's a fun
drive, fairly economical and we can get
six suitcases/handbags in the truck.
It's not going to win any races for me
but it is responsive and comfortable.


Worst Features

Door paneling needs to have tighter tolerances and suspension could use a little work. 15" wheels are a much better configuration for the street.

Review

That's all I can say--WOW! This car is
a dream come true for me.I read other
reviews and was concerned about two
things--a "rough" drive and the seats
being comfortable. She's a smooth
ride, and the seats are the more
comfortable than any other car I've had
or been in. This car has a lot of "get
up and go" for a 6 cylinder, and I'm
impressed at how fast it responds. My
only concern is the cost to insure this
car--I couldn't find a quote below $90
a month, and I have an excellent
driving record. Otherwise, this car is
a dream come true!


Best Features

The power!


Worst Features

A bit more room in the backseat would be great. It's a little difficult to get in the back if you are taller.
