Purchased this car in 1996 and used as daily driver for 4 years. Demoted to second car and added some performance goodies; mileage went from 19 to 24 and 0-60 went from high 6 seconds to mid 5 seconds (when I can get traction). Keep in mind that those figures are with 150,000+ miles on the car, and not a bit of trouble other than normal maintenance. Not a machine for the timid or new driver, and not the fastest thing on the road, but if you’re looking for a cheap way to add some fun to your daily commute, a 5.0 Mustang is a great place to start. They are fun stock, and really come to life with a little extra attention on a weekend or two.
I bought this car brand new in 93. It
has excellent performance(as you know),
gets great gas mileage for its class,
and is very dependable. I have 119000
miles with only normal tune-ups done
and it will still run low 12's in the
quarter mile. I know people that have
over 300,000 miles with no major
problems. These cars are great.
I love my 4 cylinder Mustang. Never
thought I would say it. After years of
payments and outrageous gas mileage
from my trucks, I sold my Silverado and
bought my cousin's 93 Mustang. Has
been a great car. Very economical and
reliable. Even fun to drive. Just wish
the ride wasn't so rough....even after
replacing the shocks and struts.
