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

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


Review

Thos is an awesome car to own and
drive. Shes very dependable and corners
very well. I love this Special Edition
Mustang and it is the 3rd Mustang I
have owned. I am surprised that I get
28 miles to the gallon with cruise set.
When i need the power, its there with
no hesitation. I have had a little
trouble with the air conditioning
system but the dealer repiared it after
several trips. I am very happy with
this Mustang. I love it!!!


Best Features

The 6 CD changer, the handling and the performance


Worst Features

I recommend more horsepower. This 4.6 is strong enough but I believe more base horsepower will make it stronger. Maybe a change is some ground effects will improve the looks of it more. Its still a beautiful car.

Review

I haven't had this much fun driving
since my 1973 Mach I. Still a new car,
I'm learning that I like it more each
day. Much quicker than my '68 289
coupe, suspension is firm, though a
little squirrely in the corners, but
you can learn to adapt. Driver's seat
puts my right leg to sleep on any drive
longer than an hour. Great sound, both
from the exhaust pipes or awesome sound
system. I just look for reasons to
drive this baby.


Best Features

Just enough power vs. fuel economy. 6- CD stereo. Most of all...the LOOK (and the looks you get)


Worst Features

A more comfortable seat would be my only suggestion.

Review

I have been wanting a Mustang since
1986. Finally I could afford one. The
acceleration and handling are okay.
The styling and and sound of the
exhaust are awesome, but...the car has
been back to the dealer 4 times in
three months with engine problems. All
is supposedly fixed, but no so.
Unfortunately, this was a case of of
fantasy being much better than
reality. Back to a Honda I guess.


Best Features

Sound system, sound of exhaust


Worst Features

Stronger engine, get rid of A/C compressor noises, engine ticking under acceleration of any kind, wind noise in cabin at highway speeds, transmission noises.
