Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The power of the V-8 in urban traffic.
Cons: Seeing who gets to drive, me, the wife or our boys!
Advice: Buy from a small town dealer, less hassle.Call it a mid life crisis car...it sure is fun to drive, even with a family in tow. Now the argument is who gets to drive it, when! The look is great and the performance outstanding. It is a blast to drive and with the top down and the sun in your face and wind in your hair (even if it is showing shades of grey) it a car for all ages!
Pros: POWER, SPEED.....
Cons: Is this a real question?
Advice: Don't think. It is a sports car. Your wife is not suppose to like it.Everyone says the sound of the mustang GT V8 is why you should fall in love with this car. The sound is amazing. However, every bit of noise = POWER. This car gets out of it's own way. I never thought I would own a red sports car (3 small kids with #4 on the way). I now own the Tourch Red GT. Arrest Me Red? Arrest me, beat me with a night stick then through me in jail. For $25K you can not go wrong.
Pros: Power and torque, 6-speed overdrive manual, power and torque.
Cons: Hard on gas, no sunroof or moonroof for coupe, no premium stereo with both cassette and CD, no heated seats or power passenger's side seat.
Advice: If going for a 2003 V8 sports car that has power and is good on gas, check the Corvette ZO6 instead!I have thoroughly checked the SVT Mustang Cobra coupe and convertible. While they may have power and torque, they can be improved on gas mileage. It is by reducing one OHC and 16 valves. It has worked for GM! Also, the coupe needs a sunroof or moonroof. Both need a premium stereo with both cassette and CD. And they need heated seats and a power passenger's side seat. True, another positive feature for this is its 6-speed overdrive manual. However, for a 2003 V8 sports car, I have to recommend the Corvette ZO6 instead.
Pros: my custom glasspack exhaust system, LOUD!!!
Cons: I LOVE EVERYTHING!
Advice: Black is very hard to keep clean!!!!Love at first sight, passion at first drive! when i took this new gt out in a test drive i fell in love and i just had to get it, it by far is the most beautiful and fastest car i have ever owned. great bang for the buck! i definantly recomend you buy one!
Advice: get stickfun
Pros: The exterior styling. Turns a lot of heads.
Cons: The seats could be a little more comfortable. Not enough lateral control for those hard corners.
Advice: if your looking for raw power make sure you look at the Cobra SVT's before making your final decisionI have owned a 2002 GT with the premium package since April '02. The vehicle is incredible. The 4.6l had outstanding torque and the suspension handles every bit of it. It's a very smooth ride and the cabin in the hardtops is very sound-proof. When you need that extra power to get up to speed on the on-ramps or just want to pass that long semi-trailer, this car will impress just about anyone.
Pros: Looks, seats, handling and acceleration.
Cons: Gas mileage sucks, but I will save money elsewhere to compensate
Advice: Haul azz to your closiest dealer and purchase one.Drove it on 9/14/02 at about 3pm. Bought the car on 9/14/02 at about 3:15pm. This car is just awesome. I owned a 91 GT and a 97 Cobra Coupe before this car. I've only had the car for about 5 days. I don't plan on driving this car like the typical 17 year old idiot, though I was one about 18 years ago. Once I break this rocket in, I'll explore a little bit, but I plan on taking care of this car. I purchased this vehicle on the Z-plan from ford for $31,052. Ford then took an additional $2500 bucks off cause I actually wanted a silver one. Black worked just fine!!! Hated to get rid of the 97 Cobra, but this car is something else. If this car was made in germany, it would cost $60000 grand. If you want a performance car and want to have some money afterwards, look no further. This car rocks!!!!!
