2000 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car 10 months ago at 57,000 miles and have since put on 12,000 miles.
I have had no problems with this car since I got it and have done all the regular preventative maintenance and oil changes on date.
A rod just broke out of nowhere and now I need to replace the engine.
There are only 69,000 miles on this vehicle.
This is rediculous.
I will not buy another Ford again.
I thought of this car as an A+ hands down, and then got blindsided by this incident.
Not happy about it and very disappointed.

Review

Bought my Stang new in 2000, would have loved the GT but fell in love with the Gold V6 with the 5 speed.
The color still gets compliments today.
Have 67K on it, and until yesterday have only had to replace tires, a battery, front brakes,bad window/lock switch and a fuel line which rotted out .
Yesterday the clutch blew.
I cant even be upset about it.
The maintenance on this car has been next to nothing.
I love the performance, still has a lot of kick!
One bad paint spot on the roof and not happy with the fog on the headlights.
Great car and will be buying another when this one decides to go to heaven


Best Features

Gold paint, responsive 5 speed, favorite body styling till the 2012 came out but feel guilty admiring them I love this one so much.


Worst Features

The foggy headlights and the way water pools in the spoiler after giving her a bath

2000 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Coupe


Review

I've owned my 2000 Mustang GT for only 9 months, and I've already put it for sale.....
how can I write a favorable review of it if I don't even wish to keep it?
Yet, the car really is terrific - it just doesn't stir my soul!
Mine has 75,000 miles on it (bought it with 65,000), and it has been nothing but pleasure to own.
I bought it and immediately lowered it with H&R springs (the wheel gap on 99-04 Mustangs is HIDEOUS), and put a Pro5.0 shifter in it.
If I was keeping it, I'd put a set of Flowmasters and 4.10 gears on it.
I love the fact that you have a bread and butter V8 in here that anyone can repair (if needed) that still has performance that'll whollop many cars on the road.


Best Features

- High revving V8 engine - this Ford SOHC 4.6 engine appears in hundreds of thousands of other Fords and Lincolns..... and it's good! - excellent clutch action; not too heavy, and not too light - wonderful shifting transmission - nice interior - super dependable. In 9 months and 10,000 miles, not a single problem with it. - easy to work on.... this technology has been around for years - anyone can work on this car (if needed) - tons of aftermarket parts for it - gets lots of looks and compliments


Worst Features

After driving this car for a while, I've never liked the suspension. It is firm (I added lowering springs, and I like that), but you can certainly feel the flex in the chassis. Handling doesn't quicken the pulse as I expected it would. I love the tossability of other cars, and this car seems like its 80% of the way there, but the remaining 20% is lacking. The rear axle almost seems disconnected from the front of the car. I'm sure there are aftermarket parts that would tighten things up, but should you have to do that? The Mach 460 stereo is only mediocre.

Review

I have owned my mustang for about 8 years. I purchased it used in 2004 with about 98k on the odometer. Today I am proud to announce I broke the acclaimed 250k mark!!!! The car still runs strong and I'm about to have the transmission serviced for the first time tomorrow at the Ford dealership (my friend recommended I do it, I kept topping off fluid every once in a while, nothing major, no leaks). The car still runs strong, shifts great, smooth ride. Added cold air intake, dual exhaust to give it a better sound and thats about it! Full synthetic oil changes at about 3,500 miles. City & Hwy miles... I love this car!!!!


Best Features

It's been great, since it's been paid off for a couple of years now, I'm enjoying the financial return of owning the car outright! I love this vehicle and it's solid built transmission and engine.


Worst Features

The seats are becoming uncomfortable, I'm guessing because it's been sat in for 250k miles... I'm sure with any car with this much riding it would need a new interior, I'll look into it, probably when they fall out ;).

Review

I've owned my 2000 Mustang GT for 4+ years now. Car now has 155K on her and she's still running strong. The only major failures I've had was the Intake Manifold coolant line busting & heater core leaking(major pain to fix). I've really driven this car hard, but always maintained it, and she is still going strong. Please stop listing to idiots bash a car because they 1. they neglect it. and 2. they give a bad rap because of normal Maintenance items they have to replace(rotors/pads/air filters/fuel filters/plugs). On a different note, after a few basic mods, these cars will run with the feared LS1 Camaro's.


Best Features

Things to Love: 1. Exhaust Note(especially with L/T headers) 2. Body Styling 3. Handling(very decent for an American car) 4. Plenty of power to have some fun and play with the competition. 5. Interior Design is Very decent and does look nice. 6. Factory Mach 460 sound system is great! 7. Extremely reliable & very easily modifiable.


Worst Features

Things that should be fixed: 1. Have 3.73 Rear Diff gears from factory. 2. Fog Lights that don't fog. 3. Sun Roof would be nice option. 4. Get rid of those worthless rear seats. 5. dash cluster & some interior features could use some spicing up(thank god for aftermarket) 6. The stock shifter is like driving a semi, a shorter throw would be nice(yay for aftermarket) 7. would have been nice to see a little more power to compete hand & hand with the 5.7L LS1. Sure their is the Cobra, but even the 4v DOHC should have been making more then 320HP.
