1996 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Coupe


Review

Wonderful car to own. I have had several Mustangs in the past 8 years. I have had V-8's and 1; V-6. All have been a pleasure to own. If you are looking for a V-6 spend the extra money for the extra HP you will happy that you did. The back seat is for looks basically, handling is wonderful, & speed is great!


Best Features

Speed, handling, styling.


Worst Features

Glove box larger. Owners manual and registration that is about all you will get in there.

1996 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible


Review

I love my green Mustang with tan top. When I bought the car it was lowered in the front, dual exhast and cobra R wheels. This car is extremely fun to drive and when the top's off, wow on a nice night it's great. But I must say that the gas mileage is pretty bad, I feel like I'm always at the gas station. But other then that I plan on buying a 1998 GT convertible that's how much I like them.


Best Features

Top down, and lowered in the front.


Worst Features

Gas mileage.

Review

The 1996 Ford Mustang GTR® has started up every time I have ever turned the key. I have had very little trouble finding parts for repairs (when necessary) as well as performance parts. I also think the ride quality is superior to previous years and the power is much improved with the 4.6L. Although the car lacks rwhp in its factory trim it makes up for it with torque. Also it is a solid car and hooks very well. The GT is ready for modifications in hp, which is truly the hallmark of a mustang, affording the opportunity for personalization.


Best Features

The Hydro-boosted 4 wheel disc brakes. The quality of construction. 4.6L SOHC engine and T-45 transmission. Visibility of interments and road


Worst Features

5.4L SOHC engine. Relocation of gear/shifter towards the rear of vehicle. Lower and widen body. Hard top convertible. Factory headers

1996 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Coupe


Review

This car has always been good to me. I have had only minor problems related to oxygen sensors. Good transportation and the mileage is not too bad, 19-22.


Best Features

Quick car that is fun to drive. Good room for driver. I am 6'2" and fit nicely. But with the seat back it cramps anyone behind you in this car.


Worst Features

More power, which you get with newer models.
