2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

All around, the best of all pre-2005 Mustangs. 320hp but it can be short-shifted at 2000 rpms and can start off in 2nd without lugging; can skip gears. Excellent throttle response at all engine speeds. Ride is good, not harsh. Get 25-26 on hwy. Traction control is helpful; it is easy to spin the tires, especially on wet roads. I have one as my daily driver; it is less common than the standard GT; 60 more HP, better steering, larger brakes from the Cobra, subframe connectors, better (Tokiko) shocks. Noise is a little high, but not bad on the highway. Get the 5 speed manual; it's the only way to go! Will probably hold value better than all but the Cobra models.


Best Features

320HP; great V8 sound; manual transmission. Can short-shift at 2K rpm; no need to wind out the motor. This car still accelerates RAPIDLY in 3rd gear. Great passing power. Not as common as the GT. Good brakes, excellent mileage (25-26) for the power.


Worst Features

Smoother idle (common complaint); less-dark interior.

2004 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have always been a huge Mustang junkie. I vowed to one day own one when my daughters were big enough to actually enjoy the ride. And finally the day came. I got one. And I couldn't say enough great things about it. I love this car. I love the body style. The factory stereo is awesome. I have done a few minor adjustments to the appearance (cosmetic things like adding decals and window scoops) and also modified the exhaust. And even though it’s a v6 it looks and sounds like a v8. I get compliments all the time on how incredible the car looks. It is absolutely beautiful!


Best Features

Love the body style, stereo, and interior.


Worst Features

Like everyone else I would have to agree a slightly larger back seat would be great.

2004 Ford Mustang 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this vehicle for a little over a month and I must say that it is a keeper. SO fun to drive and the gas mileage isn't bad either. I am so heavy on the pedal that I can make a econocar get bad gas mileage. The Mustang likes to be pushed. And the 5 speed is fun!


Best Features

The color! The stereo is great for a factory stereo. My 6 banger is peppy and fun to drive. The pony package is a must! It just makes the car look better. The cloth seats are very comfy.


Worst Features

Bigger back seat. Longer standard warranty.

2004 Ford Mustang Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

With the rush to get the new 2005 Mustangs, smart buyers bought the 2004 models at tremendous savings. The convertibles were well built cars with no leftover kinks from prior years. The performance for the 3.9L 6 cylinder is more than adequate and if you don't constantly 'floor it' the gas mileage is outstanding. We were able to obtain 25+ mpg combined city/highway on a 3900 mile vacation. Incredible! If you are in the market for a used nice looking sports car convertible, do not hesitate to buy a LOW mileage adult driven model. The price should be right with everyone else wanting the 'new' styles. No disappointments, and with gas so high, you can basically have it all with this model.


Best Features

Easy to operate convertible top. No leaks and the wind noise is minimal. Handling is superb with the Goodyear Eagles. The 6 CD Mach 1 music system is the best! The fuel economy was already noted as excellent. The 'Pony Package' is really something to look for. Just delightful cosmetic upgrades.


Worst Features

None. Unbelievable 'bang for the buck'. No need for complaints at the price this car can be obtained for. No trips to the Ford dealer other than oil changes.
