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


Review

I love the ford Mustangs. I have had three different ones ranging from the 5.0 to the 2003. I can't keep from just looking at it and wanting to drive. I love the torque and the smoothness in the way it handles. I have had so may other sports cars want to race and my 'stang has never let me down. If you're looking for a car to look sweet in this is the one to have. I would recommend if you haven't driven a standard you need to learn. They have so much more power and the rumble it makes is too sweet.


Best Features

The favorite thing about the car is the whole thing, not one thing do I not like about it, from the black leather interor and the rubber on the tires. It's all sweet.


Worst Features

None that i know of.

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


Review

The re-issue of the Mach 1 Mustang is an excellent performance value for the money. This car has a tremendous amount of low end torque and easily runs the quarter mile in high 13 second range without any modifications, just as from the factory. The Mach has a distinctive muscle car exhaust note that is reminiscent of big block cars from the 60's. One drawback is the interior, which could have been done up with better quality. Fuel tank is relatively small (15 gallons) and requires frequent re-filling , especially if the car is driven hard.


Best Features

Functional ram air hood scoop, 32 valve double overhead cam engine, body striping


Worst Features

Wider rear tires

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


Review

This car has standard bad traits of "performance" cars that are normally forgivable - poor gas mileage, high insurance premiums, etc. Even the severely minimalist interior (ie., cheap and uninspired) was explained away as being for the "serious" performance enthusiast. Three years after purchase, I'm still waiting for my car to perform. It has no power in first gear - which is fairly important in city driving as you often don't get a chance to shift up before you're cut off. Gunning it to get high rpms looks kind of stupid in heavy traffic. This vehicle has also developed some suspicious rattles during its limited 4700 miles, including weird A/C noises. Maybe it's a lemon.


Best Features

Suspension, handling & braking are fantastic - cornering in this car is a thrill. Nice stereo. Shaker hood. Exterior styling (although you have to be gentle with the black accents).


Worst Features

Remember that hp at 5600rpm isn't all that important if you never get to 5600 rpm. Spend a little time & money on a better interior. Better pipes! 4.9L should make some noise. And there was no excuse not to put a 6 speed in a car with a $29k MSRP - Example: Nissan 350Z.

Review

Great car! Not new to Mustangs but
this is the best so far. Interior is
getting old on design but is still
great. Exterior on the Mach 1 is just
awesome. Great performance. Great
bang for the buck overall! Excellent
engine. Awesome brakes! The seats
are the best in a Mustang yet. Highly
recommend this car for the muscle car
lover.


Best Features

Shaker hood, 32V V-8 engine, great brakes.
