2002 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

a nice over all car. . Somewhat Sparten interior
compared to lot of cars, esp from the East.
Dated would be a good word. handles well
enough for most people. And under power for
me, though once at freeway speeds, with a
concious effort on the gas you will go.


Best Features

style, feel, an american classic. this is a very good looking car to a lot of people even those woho dont like Am. cars. And good priceing even for faster GT.


Worst Features

heavy thottle pressure. too much time on auto shifts, plus noisey ato trans. not anywhere enough cubbie holes

2002 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

You cannot get more fun in a car for
under $25K. Sticks to the road, just
enough torque to feel racy, and a great
sound system, with a muscular, punchy
styling. This car is solid and
remains tight. One exception: squeeky
windows that the dealer fixed. But not
a single other problem since October
01. Essentially, Ford focused on the
things a buyer like me wants, so there
may be some paint runs under the trunk,
but who cares? Do I wish it had about
40 more horsepower? Yes, its not quite
as fast as its looks suggest, but that
is being picky. Buy the GT for a few
grand more if that is your concern.
Overall, a surprisingly great buy.


Best Features

Sound system, definitely, which is one of the best I have heard. The styling. General tight feel of the entire car.


Worst Features

More power is always good. There should be a feature that lowers all the windows just before the top goes down, then seals them. The speed sensitive volume is good, but seems to go up the same amount, whether the top is down or not, which is odd.

2002 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

BEWARE of the 2002-2003 GT Mustang
Deluxe....it has an engine problem that
the engineers "are still working on" it
idles VERY rough unless you have the
air conditioner on- then it settles
down. Since you can't drive in the
winter with the air on..it is a
problem.The service dept. says it is
with all standard GT's of those years.
It is building up carbon...so take it
in!!!!!!!!! They are replacing sensors
and such,,,but to no avail! Mine is not
the only one!!!BEWARE!!!!!you will hate
it. it is junk. I bought it at invoice
and am upset down by 10,000. They do
not hold ANY value...BEWARE!!


Best Features

IT looks good, buy runs terrible!!! Mach 1000 stereo is the only way to go.


Worst Features

don't sell until the problems are fixed. Ford knew of the problem when I bought mine, there should be a law against selling models with known problems in the service dept.

Review

I bought this car as a "fun" car. I
find it a pleasure to drive, especially
with the top down. The V6 is one of
the best in it's class and has plenty
of pep.If you want to race, buy the
GT.Yes it has inadequate storage,
that's not what it's built for! It's
built for pleasure, not hauling the
family.For the price,I don't think
you can find a better looking, more
reliable convertible.People might
immediately shout Sebring.My answer,
buy a Sebring if you LOVE your service
mangager, because you'll be seeing alot
of him.Been there, done that!Ford
has done a good job of putting all of
the essential options into an
affordable package.


Best Features

Sound and reliable. Plenty of pep. Great sound system. Looks good, handles well. Fun to drive!


Worst Features

My only complaint are the seats. They haven't changed since 1984 (or maybe earlier?). They definitely could be more comfortable. They're not UNcomfortable, they just could be better.
