1999 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Convertible 2dr Convertible


Review

I have owned this car for roughly 2
years now, and I have to admit that is
is the biggest POS I have ever owned.
Let's list the problems that I have had
in 2 years of ownership: Broken piston
in conv top, leaking top, engine had to
be replaced at 22,000 miles, car spits
coolant like it's Old Faithful, fog
lights shorted out, piston rings went
on new engine after 12k miles, rear
knuckle had to be replaced, CD player
does not work... The list goes on.
Don't get me wrong, the car is a blast
to drive, but I think the service
manager at the dealer drove the car
more than I did.


Best Features

Torque, torque and more torque. Independant rear is a revelation. Gets more attention than Pam Anderson in a bikini.


Worst Features

Reliability is horrendous. The interior was designed by Fisher Price. The car's chassis is from the 70's. Remeber the ugly vinyl seats in your mom's 1970's Crown Vic? Apparently Ford had some left over and used it all over the car

Review

I got my cobra in July of 99 and
haven't ever looked back. It handles
great, has the perfect sound, and more
then enough power to put those "other
muscle" cars in their place. I've put
42000 miles on it and havent had a
single problem from it.


Best Features

Tons of horsepower to start with and its easy to get a whole lot more.


Worst Features

Might as well be a two seater...

Review

I purchased a 1999 Cobra and I have
had nothing but problems with it. Now
cars can have problems, but neither
the Dealer nor the manufacturer are
willing to deal with the car. It's
headed for arbitration with a total of
12 problems including:

powerstearing failure (while driving)
Brake failure (while driving)
mulitple interior things breaking
A/C fails the first time it is used
Recalled 3 times.

And that is just the beginning....


Best Features

Acceleration, and looks


Worst Features

SERVICE, it's a 33K car, enginear it correctly,service it like one, look at Lexus and BMW, take a few notes and get it right.
