A True American Hot Rod
By Phil Purdin on
Vehicle2003 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
ReviewIt was the end of the year (2003) and I
needed a new car. I went shopping
without any particular model in mind and
ended up with this Mustang GT Coupe. At
age 55 I must say this is the most fun
I've had for decades. I've been driving
those 4-cylinder, gas-saving imports for
way too long. The Mustang is sheer fun
with great performance. The mileage is
as good as my wife's Grand Cherokee
straight six, when I keep my foot out of
it. It cruises beautifully in the
75-80mph range which makes it tough out
here in California with so many 55mph
Best FeaturesI love the body style and painted wheels with low-profile tires. The overall handling response is really tight and gives the driver a real sense of security in quick maneuvering. The stick shift, V8 combo is pure excitement.
Worst FeaturesA six-speed tranny would have been a good addition. A little too much lag between 4th & 5th.
