This is a fun car to drive. Performance
is superior. Reliability has been
great. I actually own a 1998 Mustang GT
convertible with 51000 miles, so I know
of what I speak. Very comfortable for a
sports car. I still get lots of stares
and thumbs up when I drive.
Great engine in the GT. Yes, more
horses in the SVT, but the GT is plenty
for me. Comfortable seats. Love that
throaty exhaust note.
Use less plastic and more apolstery on
the door panels. My 1998 GT has black
leather; I wish the current model
offered a true black.
Great car especially when you live in
Southern California and drive with the
top down most of the year! Love the
way it handles, although I wish the GT
suspension wasn't as hard
riding...especially over country
roads. Some minor rattles, but this is
a convertible. A real plus is that the
V-8 engine uses regular fuel! That is
a big savings just in itself! Would
definitely buy another down the road!
Fun to drive
gets lots of looks
uses regular fuel
Suspension is too hard for normal
driving. Goodyear tires
that come with the car are terrible.
Mileage rating only about 18,000 miles.
Just bought new BF Goodrich tires for
$800 which is a lot of money, but rated
to about 30,000 miles.
I love all convertibles, but nothing
carries the pizzaz of a Stang
Convertible. Ours is a Redfire
Metallic with two tone leather
interior. Big V8 with a savvy 5 speed
transmission. Plenty of power, but
more importantly, it's distinctly
American and a hoot to drive. At the
Sonic, everybody, and I mean everybody,
looks at this car, not the other so-
I love the Mach 460 Stereo system.
One could always use more horsepower
and torque, right?
