My 2001 Cobra is a total POS!
By Eric Westermeyer on


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


First of all, do not buy a 2001 SVT
Ford Mustang Cobra. The car has a bad
knock/ping. The ping has been there
since day one and Ford will not fix
it. They put out an official statement
that says pinging is normal. My car
dynoed below Ford's acceptable HP and
torque figures and has been in the
shop for over 30 days of unscheduled
maintenance in a year and a half. The
transmission was replaced at 3,000
miles. The list goes on and on. Myself
and my family will never buy a Ford
product again. This includes any
company that Ford owns, such as Mazda,
Jaguar, etc. Ford, you sold me the
worst car that I have ever owned and
you do not honor warranties.

Best Features

I just love how my car pings under light acceleration on premium fuel. And if you get into the throttle at all, it pings even worse. Using the air conditioning is out of the question.

Worst Features

Ha Ha...how about fix the "normal" pinging 2001 Cobras. You will lose customers over this issue!
