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.
love my mustang!
Cons: not very roomyI 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!
Cons: miles per gallon
Advice: car factsWOW amazing
Advice: i like thisvery good
Pros: Rear wheel drive

Advice: Get one with a V8Fun to drive and very happy with 25 mpg from a V8.
Cons: No complaints
Advice: Buy American. Stop whining and enjoy a great sports car!Had to chime in once I began reading other reviews. My red GT is great! I hear others whining about 'road noise' and 'harsh ride' and lack of performance?! This is a SPORTS CAR PEOPLE. Fit and finish is great. Interior is beautiful and functional. I added Ford Racing handling package and Hurst shifter and this car out handles all comers. Zero to sixty in about 5.2 seconds and some of you out there complain about the power?! This car is a tremendous value but NOT a Lexus or Mercedes folks. My former cars? Ferrari, MB, Porsche, Corvette, Acura.
Pros: Exhust Sound
Cons: V6 Engine
Advice: Get The GT, And Drive Other Sports Cars First.It's A Good Looking Vehicle, I Am Getting My Engine Replaced By Ford At 5,864 Miles After 8 Months Of Owning The Vehicle. My Engine Was Making A Strange Rattle Noise And Come To Find Out It Was Blown.
