2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Premuim Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased the car over a year ago and I love every minute that I get to drive it. The car has 38000 miles, but I have only put on about 2000 since I bought it. I love the shaker hood scoop, and it still turns a lot of heads for a mustang. Don't really see too many of these where I live. Performance is outstanding (Low 5 sec. to 60 mph). Bought the car with a few modifications and it just flies. Heard these engines were very reliable, and haven't had any problems yet. Engines were rated at 305 hp, but I think it's more like 320. Looking forward to keeping this one for a long time.


Best Features

The shaker hood, 32 valve V8 exhaust note, the graphics package really looks nice, and helps it stand out from other mustangs. The seats are surprisingly comfortable.


Worst Features

Interior could be better. The automatic transmission is kind of clunky,and sometimes hesitates to shift, but it is pretty good overall.

2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Premuim Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Simply an awesome automobile. This is the 6th mustang ive owned (still have an 87 gt conv). I drive this car daily and have put 90k on it in 3 years. The ONLY thing thats ever been replaced is one set of tires!! The car is occasionally raced @ the dragstrip and drives 60 miles a day on the interstate. It is as still tight as the day i bought it, no squeaks, rattles, or anything, and on top of that, its lowered. The car is a silent predator. In stock trim (mine has been tuned and a few goodies here and there) a stock C6 vette cant stand it in an 8th mile race. You have to do a little tweaking and good driving to handle him in the quarter. Whoever did their homework @ Ford on this got a raise!


Best Features

shaker hood, old style guages, stance..


Worst Features

6 speed..

Review

All in all a fun car. Had lots of fun adding bolt ons to make this baby fly. Got to love the dohc motors. Interior Seats a little tight for larger people. ( I'm 6'1" 220lbs). Other than that, its a beaut!


Best Features

Black is best. Shaker Hood (RAM air) over-all styling


Worst Features

Sell with some of the improved suspension, (increases gas mileage), and other bolt-ons coming stock

A twist your arm suggestion, would be extra cubic inches. Personally I'm a 351 person.

Review

I have been driving this car since I entered college 3 years ago. Since then I have had to replace a seal on the transmission that left me stranded away from home with my car checked in at the dealership for 2 days and it has developed all kinds of rattles and sqweeks. For some reason Ford made the seats with so much side bolstering that the passenger seat is constantly rubbing against the door, which can become quite annoying on a 300 mile drive half way across Texas. While driving long distances the road noise can be quite tiresome, but around town this usually isn't a problem. Other than that I have no complaints the car runs well, is relatively quick and turns heads.


Best Features

Throaty V8 exhaust, 5-speed manual transmission, seats really hug you in the corners, real shaker hood, retro style


Worst Features

Passenger side seat as mentioned above. Also forgot that the transmission is a little reluctant to shift into second and reverse when it is cold
