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


Review

The car was ok until it hit 1800 miles. Then a fuel injector problem caused it to shut off while driving at highway speed. A couple of months later, there was a huge puddle of transmission fluid on the garage floor thanks to a faulty rear transmission seal. So I get that fixed only to have the battery go dead a few weeks later. As of this date, the battery has gone dead 5 times and the problem is still not fixed. The dealership has replaced the alternator on one visit. On another visit they replaced the radio and the amplifiers for the MACH 460 sound system. On the 3 other visits they say "can't duplicate concern". Ford = Fix Or Repair Daily.


Favorite Features

The exterior design is nice, although it can't compare to the new generation.

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


Review

I drive the Mustang very little because I want to keep it really nice. It is redfire with the light parchment interior and top. The quality of the interior is not up to par with the imports, but for the price, the performance is a bargain. The car reminds me of my 1969 Ford Torino GT, which is a good thing. The difference is that the Mustang actually handles well. I think the Mustang is a great car for anyone who appreciates American v-8 power. It feels like the days of old, but with refinement.


Favorite Features

Number one feature, of course is the performance. Numbers two and three are the performance.


Suggested Improvements

The new stangs are said to be greatly improved in every way. I'll take their word for it but I also think the 04 convertible looks better than the 05. If I could improve one area on mine, I would add a few horsepower and torque numbers. After all, too much is never enough.

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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