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

Review

Has very peppy accelleration, good braking if not great, handles like it's on rails, has fiberglass Deck-lid and hood and rear spoiler, 16" aluminum wheels. I did install a dual exhaust system with dual catalyst 2" pipes and my gas mileage went up by 3-MPG city and almost 7-mpg hwy. No joke it made a big difference, with the factory style headers it has always been dependable, never let us down.. and at 26-28 mpg hwy. I'm a happy camper, And I would for sure buy another one when this one is worn out. Great little sporty car!

Favorite Features

Steering, handling, braking, and pick- up/acceleration. styling inside and out. and easy to service with rear wheel drive I do about 65% of my own service at home, Oil/Filter etc.

Suggested Improvements

With the 5-spd. manual transmission I find that 1st. gear is very low, it winds up to 3000-RPM very quickly, this needs addressed, as well as 5th. gear a very tall over drive, either a 6-spd would be better or a higher ratio 1st. gear.
