My 2003 Yellow ZX-3
Pros: The cars handling.
Cons: Could use more power.I bought it new and it still looks and runs like new. Slightly under 60,000 miles but have never had one problem with the car. About 33mpg on the highway. Handling is awesome. Body is tight, no squeaks or rattles what so ever. Mine is a 5 speed and has a nice shifter. Actually, I have had one problem,,,the 6 disc CD player has malfunctioned on occassion. Other than that, this has been a fun, dependable, economical car to own. I have never regretted buying it.
Ford Focus wagon - little car that could
Pros: tons of space
Cons: looks too much like a mini vanHad the car for almost 7 years. Still using the OEM battery. I've changed the oil/filters and tires - nothing else. No problems. 38 MPG on the highway (if I stay under 75) 30 mpg in town. I can haul my bikes, kayak, 4 people and a lot of camping gear with no problem. Need a dresser moved - no problem. Tons of space, great gas mileage and reliable - what else is there?
Mustang Legend Lime Convertible
Cons: what is not to like? nothingoutstanding automobile, responds very well to minor changes to computer tune. thousands of aftermarket items available for this car. Ford someone hit a homerun with a 2 strike count with this retro styled beauty. If they make the legend lime color available again i would buy a new GT in a heartbeat, meanwhile i plan on upgrading my engine to match 2011 HP figures. this car is so special and such a hit with the consumer chevrolet and dodge manufactured their own retro camero and challenger, but sadly they missed the high standards set by the Mustang.
Pros: 500 HP Engine
Cons: PriceSexy car - Handles like a go cart. No issues with performance of fit and finish.
One hot ride
Pros: Comfort and response
Cons: I don't have two of themThe car is inspirational. It really gets up and goes, it is comfortable good looking and my daughter and her car seat fit easily in the back seat. It has a surprisingly large trunk for a sports car also. 2010?2011? not for what I got mine for. This may be the best find and deal on a car I ever got. To bad they are no longer around as new cars But I'll bet people can find a great used one and have a super Mustang, just not mine.
Pros: body style
Cons: little stiffvery very dependable and economical
Pros: The pipes at 5000 rpm
Cons: The seat backs don't have a quick release to enter the rear seatI bought this car for my 70th birthday in 2009, and drove from FL to NY. The handling is nearly as good as my old 325i, the ride is a lot smoother. With the V8 and the 5spd stick I watch the cars disappear in my rear view mirror. Gas milage was acceptable,(18 to 22), and there was plenty of room for luggage. It is more fun to drive than my wife's 2006 vette. Her's is an auto with paddle shift.
