This has been the highest quality car I have ever owned - it has a nice, solid one-piece feel to it, handles well, and is fun and comfortable to drive. As I currently drive about 32 miles each way to work, I appreciate the comfort and performance from the 3.8 liter six cylinder engine, which puts out 190 hp for this year.
The look and feel of the car is great! It feels so much more solid than my other cars, and the steering has a nice "weight" to it when you turn the wheel.
It would be so nice if older people had just an inch or two more to swing their legs into the front seat - I have an aunt who can't bend her knee. It is tough to get her in the front seat. Gas mileage should be higher; I get about 23 or so mixed driving to work - my old Dart got that good 35 years ago!
Bang for the buck, you can't beat a
Mustang when it comes to performance.
Beautiful car, powerful, fun in the
straights and the corners, and almost
100,000 miles without a major problem.
Who says American cars are low quality?
Chirping 1st second and thrid gears!
more power, deeper bucket seats, more
front leg room.
I got the car in 99 just out of high
school and have driven it for 140000
miles without a single hickup just
change the oil every 3000 miles and the
thing will run great. It's still even
on the same clutch.
My favorite thing on this ccar is the
mach stereo if you like music you have
to have this system.
Just a bit more power, I guess i cant
complain though because it still was
faster than most hondas.
bought used with 7400 miles in like new
condition. now have 58000 and it has
never cost a dime in maintenance except
for routine oil & filter changes.
brakes & steering very good. heater &
air very good. ride comfort is awful.
5 speed sloppy & difficult to shift
into first when at full stop. difficult
to enter & exit. shoulder belt height
is non-adjustable and constantly pulls
out of seat back plastic loop. all in
all an inexpensive car to own and has
great looks with Cobra style wheels &
tires. Poor traction with this tire
package when streets are wet however.
four wheel disc brakes, premium sound
system, the dash.
doors are too long for compact size
parking spaces so it's hard to wiggle
in & out of the car when you can't get
the door open very far. The seat belts
are terrible (non-adjustable) and so is
the ride. make the cup holders so that
you can actually use them with a stick
The Mustang is a great deal, reliable, full of
character, fun to drive, and even sensible.
Civic, Celica and so on don't compare as a whole
package. The 99+ V6 is a bargain in every respect.
Trunk space is good compared to most small cars,
and fold through rear seats are really convenient.
Kids enjoy the rear seat. They don't need an SUV!
Adults can fit uncomfortably in the back, but who
cares about them? This car is about you, the driver.
The manual makes the car alive and gears are
flexible through hills. Highway mileage is great for
a car like this (27 or
so) but city drops pretty quickly to around 20. For
what this car costs, buy one and some snow tires!
Performs better than 95% of the cars on the road,
Costs as much as the same year econobox from
Honda etc, Driver and front passenger comfort is
tops, Great looks, great reliability.
The cupholder sucks...... the seatbelts are a little
annoying if they fall out of the clips on the seat.
The CD/Tape radio is great, but having the cd
player behind the gear shifter is awkward It should
have a MP3/cd unit on top and use the space below
as a tray for an Ipod or cell phone
