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
Pros: The 3rd row seating
Cons: Not being able to see the mileage and trip mileage at the same time.
Advice: Go with the V8 model.I really like to V8 model. It drives very smooth and the steering is great. This vehicles handles just like a car. Easy manuevering (sp?) into spots.
Cons: Could use a bit more power going up hills here in Atlanta
Advice: Test drive in both traffic and open road conditions.Just took delivery and have less than 1500 miles. Atlanta traffic was killing my 99 Grand Marquis and went to a more practical car. Best move I have made. Very nimble, quick in and out of traffic. Brakes very solid.
Pros: Performance, Features and Towing Capacity
Cons: Sloping cargo area with third seat down
Advice: Avoid the 3rd seat unless you need it.This LTD version came with all the options and is performing flawlessly since driving it out of the dealership. Great power with the V8 and rides very comfortably. Lots of human engineering went into this new design. The only drawback being the sloping cargo floor when the third seat is down. Rolling objects will fall out when the hatch is opened.
Pros: size of the interior and the 6 way power seats
Cons: My truck is perfect and sound
Advice: Go with the 4 door crew cab it's worth the small price for the extra roomI test drove this truck up and down the highway with good take off speed for a truck of its size and weight. This truck is solid and quiet. The captain seats are must on the crew cab. They are firm but comfortable. There is alot of storage space inside the cab with a good size space behind the rear seat. Ford did a great job combining the look and feel of a big truck while still making it a comfortable ride on long trips.
Pros: safety record
Cons: size of the rear seat
Advice: It claims to get 32 freeway miles per gallon. It's realy about 25.The focus wagon handles well however it is very light and has trouble in the wind. Also it only seats five if the ones in the back seat are very, very, small.
Pros: the look of the vehicle
Cons: The seats
Advice: get true bucket seatsThis vehicle is uncomfortable to sit in. The seats, unless they are truly bucket seats are uncomfortable.
