2004 Ford Mustang Coupe GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I have been wanting a Mustang since
1986. Finally I could afford one. The
acceleration and handling are okay.
The styling and and sound of the
exhaust are awesome, but...the car has
been back to the dealer 4 times in
three months with engine problems. All
is supposedly fixed, but no so.
Unfortunately, this was a case of of
fantasy being much better than
reality. Back to a Honda I guess.


Best Features

Sound system, sound of exhaust


Worst Features

Stronger engine, get rid of A/C compressor noises, engine ticking under acceleration of any kind, wind noise in cabin at highway speeds, transmission noises.

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


Review

My wife wanted this pretty red
Mustang. We needed a car that gets
good gas mileage, and after seeing on
the "sticker" that the V-6 was
estimated to get 19 city/26 highway, we
felt as though this was a good purchase
for us. Well, it gets 11 mpg in town.
The dealer did troubleshooting on the
car, and informed me that it was
getting 15 mpg in town, and 25 on the
highway. So, the Ford Factory Rep
suggested that he fill the tank, drive
it for 20 miles or so, then refill the
tank and determine the mileage. He got
almost 12 miles to the gallon! Thus
far, Ford Motor Company refuses to do
anything else.


Best Features

Looks


Worst Features

Have Toyota or Honda build the drivetrain!

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.

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


Review

I've had several
new Porschs, Bmw's. Vintage Jags,
Masarati, This mustang
will be my teenage daughters first car
in 3 years I love this lil' car
it is fun to drive, the rag top is a
good rush and it's for cheap for what
you get the bang for the buck is good.
It's
smooth on the highway-I have the 6 cyl
(so my daugher doesn't have over the
top HP) it cruizes at 80+ smooth and
easy. I read the editors negative
comments on the interior finish -and
really disagree --it's fine.


Best Features

Windows & top quick, Air nice and cold, extra 12v in box handy for cell phone ,seperate truck clicker-pop open nice touch, in dash 6cd really ez


Worst Features

Little knob that releases seat to get into the back seat -flimsy and placed badly, power seat controls better placed on side not in front, "sound" of exhaust seems odd (whimpie?) re-tune
