I purchased this car in 2000 brand new. It had only 2.5 mi. on it when I test drove it. I have had other Mustangs in the past and this one is much better driving in inclement weather than the rest. I also believe it is the best built of all the past Mustangs. Throttle response in this one even today after 50,000 miles is incredible. Transmission is still a sure hook and the car has never let me down when it comes time to start it. I have even driven it in eight inches of snow and it got me home driving eleven miles. No problems with this car at all.
I like the cruise control and the five speed shifter. The exhaust sound just screams MUSTANG! For a sport car the ride is very surprising and quiet, until you crank up the impressive stock Mach stereo system.
More horsepower and acceleration in stock form, and bigger wheels and tires from the factory. The window in mine hasn't died yet but, it is already tired. How about a more masculine horn? How about mandatory hood scoops that make a statement as stock form? How about a six speed in GT?
this has been a great car thus far. no
problems. it is a blast to be able to
drop the hammer at crusing speed when
some slow putz in front of you can't
seem to get out of 2nd gear on the
hiway. and they know you are
unimpressed with their driving when
they hear the uproarious thunder of the
4.6L v-8 as you stretch the 260 horses
for all they're worth. or course, with
the current gas prices, and my
predilection for lead-footedness, it
has been an expensive love affair. i
average, with my driving an hour the
work on mostly hiways, 17mpg. i have
squeezed 27 mpg, but i don't like
looks are great. but i do have the
bullet style rims and the 2001 fake
scooped hood. i bought it that way
from the dealership. acceleration is
fun, fun, fun!
seat comfort can be a lot better.
handling can be better, (just buy the
bullet suspension kit, about $300) and
how about the cup in the first holder
not being crushed by 1st-2nd shifts?
