2004 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I was excited to finally drive a Mustang, that is why
I decided to rent one for a few days. The 6 cyl
engine with the automatic tranmission is
underpowered. This car is slow and feels heavy. The
interior build quality seems very cheap. The plastic
holding the window buttons on the driver's side
door is already loose (at 14K miles!). I am 6'2" and
the height of the interior seems OK. The seats are
alright as well. The 6 disc changer stereo sounds
good. I have not tried to remove the top, because it
seemed complicated. This might be an OK car, but I
would expect much more from a Mustang in terms
of performance (even if this is an automatic one).


Best Features

I like the Mustang look.


Worst Features

More power, better quality interior. It is unacceptable to have the plastics separate at only 14K miles. The pedals are a bit uncomfortable and the instrument panel is too far to reach.

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This is my first American made sport
car and I can say I really like the
power and performance. I got the
competition orange in a convertible.
I've had numerous foriegn cars in the
past but my son talked me into buying
the SVT and I enjoy driving it.


Best Features

I love the 6 speed transmission. The competition orange looks great. I like the interior room too.


Worst Features

I like to see some lower profile wheels like PZeros and I would like to see them come out with calipers that are colored (Yellow, Red, etc)...This would add to the look...

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


Review

I have always liked the Ford Mustang.
My first and second cars were both
Mustangs. Although I am somewhat
unhappy with the 2004 (I could not
afford the GT), I have more good to say
about it than bad. I enjoy driving it
daily to and from work. Acceleration is
quick with the manual transmission and
gas mileage is still pretty good for a
V-6. The seats aren't the best, but
I'm not uncomfortable in them.


Best Features

Steering wheel cruise control buttons are handy. Two tone "retro" styling of the dash.


Worst Features

Use less plastic for the interior, it cheapens the car. Give the seats a little more style because they seem very blah.

2004 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Bought my wife a mustang after 33 years
of her yearning for one. Tried the v-
6, too slow, bought the GT w/ 5 speed.
Took a month to adjust the seats right.
Turned a 9.3/72 mph in the 1/8th out-of-
the-box and that was with an RT of
about a year. Super ride, good MPH (27)
the most fun car I've had since '71.
No problems in 10000 miles at all. Red
line is about 6300 RPM. Excellent,
comfortable car.


Best Features

Rumble from exhausts. Shifing for myself. Blowing doors off kids. Seats are comfortable when properly adjusted. Comments on paint (Crimson Red) and stripping on 40th Anniv. Edition


Worst Features

More bells and whistles, Redesign back seat for useablity. More/better cargo space. Make the phony scoop functional.

2004 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I'v had my 04 Mustang GT a little less
then a year now. I pretty much got it
as a weekend car. I have only put about
3500 miles on it so far, so I can't
really judge the build quality too
well. The interior is pretty cheap,
with large gaps in a few spots, and the
seats are not that comfortable. But it
is what it is. No one buys a Mustang
thinking its a Cadilac. You know what
kind of car your getting in to. Its a
farily inexpensive, great looking,
fast, pure American Muscle Car. Not too
many cars can touch this performance
for the price. I would not recomend
this as your only car, but as a second
car its amazing. Its all a moot point
anyway, because the new one are out now.


Best Features

I know some people bash them, but the fake hood scoop and large rear wing make this car for me.


Worst Features

Im sure the 05s will improve on everything that was missing from this one
