Cons: noisy plastic dash(taking it in for fix)
Advice: get oneI bought the GT premium with the 5-speed. I drove this car from Michigan to Florida and back. It's a blast to drive on freeways with moderate traffic. Manual trans sucks in heavy traffic, but wouldn't trade for auto. Great for weaving in and out of traffic, handled heavy rain and wet roads well. No problem with door seals, but plastic interior is a little creaky. Road noise is loud but great sound system makes up for it.
Pros: 6cd in dash / trac-loc - great for rain and snow
Cons: ride height
Advice: Find the color you want and want buy itThis is my 5th mustang... and best yet. More comfortable, more power. Wish Ford would lower the car by about 2'. Sound systems is more like an aftermarket product than Original equipment.
Pros: All out Performance & Handling
Cons: The Sluggish Stick Shifter
Advice: JUST DO IT!!! You won't regret it!I've been a Crysler,Dodge & Plymouth fan most of my life, I've always liked the looks of the Mustang but that was as far as it went till my ex-wife purchased a 1996 model and let me drive it. I then rented a 2001 6cyl convertable to drive to a Family Reunion and I was sold, a few weeks later I purchased my 2002 Ford Mustang GT Premuim Edition and you don't allow enough room here to tell you how much I 'LOVE' this car. Looks,Comfort,Handling,Performance are unequaled in any previsely owned vehical. And to think I almost purchased a PT Crusier,and if it wasn't for the sneaky underhanded behind the back tactics of Sarasota Chrysler I would have made a 'BIG' mistake, for that I thank them. And to Autoway Ford,Bradenton Fl. I Thank You,for a truly pleasant experience and the 'BEST CAR I'VE EVER OWED!' pmm
Cons: Interior Room
