    2003 Ford Mustang

    Pros: It doesn't look like a teenager's car

    Cons: 1. lack of power 2. twitchy handling on turnpike

    This is a 2003 Mustang GT convertible, and after 7 years, I still like it. It is not particularly fast, nor does it handle all that well, but there is just something likable about it. It has been reliable across 72000 miles of driving. Other than regular maintenance, I've only replaced a clutch (and that was on warranty - pilot bearing went and they replaced whole clutch). It is slower than the Z28 I had, handles less well than my old corvette, but it keeps me from feeling like an old man when I drive it.

    2003 Ford Focus

    NICE 03 ZX-3

    Pros: Handling

    Bought it new, very dependable car. I have always liked it.Good build quality. Very comfortable, handles great. Quiet on the highway. Not overly powerful car but gas mileage is 32 mpg on the hwy. Mine is a 5-Speed and has a nice, tight shifter. Possibly the best car I ever owned.

    2003 Ford Mustang

    I Must Have A Lemon

    Pros: seat comfort, looks

    Cons: reliability, bad performance

    I bought my car new in 2003, and still have it seven years later because I couldn't afford to buy another car after. It started having problems right away. Thankfully the first problem with the front wheel was fixed under warranty. Though it was never 'like new' again. The problems kept coming, such as two replaced transmissions right after the warranty was up. It needs new brake pads every time I turn around, even though I use lifetime warranty aftermarket pads (at least they're free to replace). I've replaced the alternator, fan and motor, spark plug wires (twice), exhaust (twice) and manifolds, just to name the things off the top of my head. That said, I know lots of people with the same model mustang who have never had any problems and love their cars. A word of advice, be very careful driving in the rain.

    2005 Ford Mustang

    love my mustang!

    Pros: sporty

    Cons: not very roomy

    I have a pretty basic version of the 05 mustang. 5 speed and nothing spectacular except the stripe down the middle, makes it look sporty! But it's SO much fun to drive! It's my only vehicle...if I had an SUV too it would be great. Haven't had any major problems with it and an overall good experience. If I ever can afford it I'll get another one...GT with custom paint and a glass roof...but for now...i love my mustang!
