2004 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I was excited to finally drive a Mustang, that is why
I decided to rent one for a few days. The 6 cyl
engine with the automatic tranmission is
underpowered. This car is slow and feels heavy. The
interior build quality seems very cheap. The plastic
holding the window buttons on the driver's side
door is already loose (at 14K miles!). I am 6'2" and
the height of the interior seems OK. The seats are
alright as well. The 6 disc changer stereo sounds
good. I have not tried to remove the top, because it
seemed complicated. This might be an OK car, but I
would expect much more from a Mustang in terms
of performance (even if this is an automatic one).
I like the Mustang look.
More power, better quality interior. It is
unacceptable to have the plastics separate at only
14K miles. The pedals are a bit uncomfortable and
the instrument panel is too far to reach.
