Pros: It doesn't look like a teenager's car
Cons: 1. lack of power 2. twitchy handling on turnpikeThis 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.
none betterThis is the best i have owned ,power ,looks,comfort ,all i need and more.
I Must Have A Lemon
Pros: seat comfort, looks
Cons: reliability, bad performanceI 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.
Pros: The rumble of the engine
Cons: the small interior space

Advice: go for the XLTExcellent vehicle. Big, smooth, comfortable, safe. Does everything I need it to do. 65,000 miles with no problems. Great for road trips - can load up the family and all thier 'stuff' - arrive at our destination still on speaking terms.
Pros: Convertible top
Cons: trunk space
Advice: Don't expect great gas mileage and don't expect high performance. It's a sporty luxury vehicle. Enjoy it.Handles well, very smooth and comfortable. I use it everyday - not just on the weekends. I love driving it.
