Great car...had mine for 6 years, bought it when it had a little over 100k needless to say i added another 150 k on it. Engine is extremely reliable as long as you maintain regular oil changes.
Only bad side of this car is weather!!! be very careful in the rain and snow, do not drive over 30 miles an hour in the rain and park it when it snows.
I'm 63 yrs young and I've had a lot of different cars in my life. My last car got totaled so I went looking for a muscle car. I'm tired of 4s and 6s. I loked around for about 2 months. I found my perfect car, a 1998 mustang gt convertible. I've had it for about 9 months, and had a blast in it. It had 120,000 miles on it, and I haven't had a bit of trouble with it. All my old friends ask me about gas mileage, I tell them I could care less. I give them a ride in it with the top down and they want to buy one. Of course they have to glue their tupee's on a little better. I have trouble judging distances on parking so this is a great fit for me. I will have no other car than a mustang!!
I purchased a 1998 GT as a project car to keep and tinker with. Needless to say this will be a good challenge for me. There a few things to repair and customize. Above all the engine is rumbling like a champ. LOVE! the engine and exhaust sound. Black and tan interior match very well and replacement parts are fair in price. I plan on doing some upgrades to the engines. Even as a used car, a GT 4.6L has a lot of power and will give incredible speeds. Parents beware, you should not buy your teenager such a powerful car. Buy they aa base mustang V6/V4.
At least the car look good. My wife
bought this car before we were married
and as soon as she could she pawned it
off on me. It doesn't handle well. My
road to work is twisty and I had always
enjoyed seeing what my car can do on
it. The mustang handles like a brick.
On the inside, the seats are not very
good on the lower back and the
seatbelts tend to turn in such a way
that when you close the door the buckle
jams the door and cuts into the
paneling. All in all I have not
enjoyed this car.
When I purchased my mustang in 1997 I
was told by many people that I would
not be happy owning a Ford. Of course
they said 'found on roadside dead'
etc. I loved the way the car drove
and I six years later still love it.
So far the only things I have had to
do in six years is change the oil, the
tires and the battery. NOTHING has
broken, the radio, A/C and top all
still work fine as well. Yes, there
is some leaking now. Also surpising
is my gas milage. Its a 6cyl manual
so it should get good milage. It gets
GREAT milage. 32 highway 25 city. I
could not be happier.
