This is my third SHO so I guess you could say im partial to them. My first was a 93 5spd, then i got a 93 Auto, and now i have a 95 Auto with 165k. The SHO is my car to take out on nice summer days. The yamaha motor is amazing and was well ahead of its time. I love the sound it makes too. Mine is fully loaded with Leather, JBL sound, moonroof, key less entry with keypad, etc. I haven't had any major problems with any of my SHO's although i have had to do the normal repairs. What really surprises me is the handling. Once you drive the car it doesn't feel so big. Its very nimble for its size.

The SHO comes with a love/hate relationship. My '95 SHO has been a great car until my stupidity spun a rod bearing. The car is capable of beating supercars with a few modifications. The car takes very well to boost. On a stock motor with a Vortech T-trim supercharger, I produced 460hp. This car is not a great car for someone who does not have the knowledge, willingness to learn nor money to maintain it. Many of these cars have been beaten and show problems because of it (as with the case of my '92 SHO). On the flip- side, it has honed my skills quite well. This is definitely an enthusiasts car. Somehow I got hooked many years ago and I still have my SHO's, but have a Civic now too.

The car has been very reliable with only minor troubles since I bought it; cam sensor, starter and heater door control. Parts are not hard to find if you use the internet for your searches. Some dealers still have plenty of parts. The Yamaha engine is fantastic, simply the best in any vehicle I've had to date. Keep up with the maintenance and the car will last a long time.

The car is expensive to maintain, but
then again, the '95s are now 9 years
old. With well over 100,000 miles,
the only major problems I've had are
the starters going out. I'm on my
third one. I'll be looking to replace
the show in a year or two, and will be
sad to see it go. I'll most likely be
moving towards the up and coming
imports that are looking good these
days. Thank goodness they still put
stick shifts in their mid-size cars.
I love the styling. It's 9 years old
and stands out from the newer cars
that have similar performance.

I agree with all enthusiasm expressed
for the SHO's performance. However,
watch out. My '95 held up admirably
until 2002. Then I got socked with
numerous expensive repairs, over $1000
each. The Yamaha engine is bullet-
proof, but the Ford parts gave me
significant trouble. I broke down
twice in two months.
