2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

We bought the car new and 8 hours
later, I had my first speeding ticket.
What a fun car to drive...with a radar
detector. Interior fit and finish is
lacking and the convertible top allows
any and all outside noise to enter,
but that's where the Mach stero system
shines. It drowns out all the outside
noise while you put the car through
it's paces. The V8 provides plenty of
zip. We had a 6 cylinder version of
the 1996 Mustang for 4 years and it
struggled to get out of it's own way.
In my opinion, the 6 cylinder version
of this car is a big waste of your
money. Be sure to include an extra
$250 for a good radar detector.


Best Features

By far this car shines with the top down on a sunny day and the stereo turned way up.


Worst Features

Better interior fittings.

2001 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've owned a 2001 Mustang Convertible
for about a year now and I must say it
is a vast improvement over the boring
Front-wheel drive sedan I owned
before. The power with the V6 is
adequate, though not stellar--but a
few aftermarket performance parts can
solve that problem. The car is also
surprisingly sturdy, handling a
collison with a toyota pick up with
minimal damage. By far its best
attribute is its agility.


Best Features

agility, aftermarket potential


Worst Features

a better interior, more power for the base V6

2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The 2001 Ford Mustang is a very fun car
to drive. The 3.8L sedan provides a
great balance between power and fuel
economy. Handling is great, comfort,
although tight for large/tall people, is
good. Very nice design inside and out.

The only complaint is that the interior
is a little heavy on the plastic. The
inside of the door feels a little "soft"
due to the plastic. Overall, however,
super car. No regrets with the purchase.


Best Features

Interior design (dash especially), gray interior, exterior design (hood, rear spoiler), etc.


Worst Features

"Beef up" the interior to make it heftier.

2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I wanted a convertible. I read the V-8
was a more reliable engine so I went
with that. After rebate and dealer
discounts, the Mustang was $2k LESS
than a comparably equipped Miata. I
feel safer in a larger car. I can pass
other cars on the freeway quite easily
now. Love driving with the top down
and the exhaust sounds great. Not the
best looking inside or out. And not
the most reliable compared to
Japanese. But thousands of $$ cheaper,
so figured that would offset.


Best Features

Acceleration! The torque (302 lb.- feet) is awesome! The top down ride is like flying (almost). Handling is very good and so is sudden braking (which I've done a little bit).


Worst Features

The leather seats, though nice looking and retro, are uncomfortable over long periods. I replaced the drivers seat with a race seat which is actually an improvement. Interior is dull. I spiced it up a bit with some after market gizmos. Lose the plastic/fake hood & side scoops.

2001 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The Cora Convertible offers superior
acceleration with reasonable economy-21
miles per gallon average. Has
outstanding ride and handling
characteristics. No other convertible
offers this much power and value.
Reliability has been superior over the
first 27000 miles. No mechanical
problems. Just start it and drive with
a big smile on your face as you listen
to the rumble of that DOHC V8 turn into
a snarl as you approach 7000 RPM!
