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 Pony Package and the Zinc yellow color.
Cons: Having to have the entire front end replaced AFTER ONLY 180..yes 180...miles. Was told defective parts
Advice: Looks more expensive than what it is. I would prefer the V8 if I could afford it. Check them out...great car overall.Overall I enjoy the car and this is my second mustang. The Zinc Yellow Pony package stands out on the road and gets the looks. A little rough ride but not that bad.Accelerates good. Shifts smooth. After the front end had to be replaced after 180 miles it is now a quieter ride. Would like to hear from others if they had this same issue in their new 2003
Pros: the soft drink hole
Cons: its poor ability to hold the road
Advice: The only reason for buying this model would be for storing it, it might gain some value as a museum itemHad this model as a rental a few weeks ago. Worst car I have ever driven, just a 4 wheel body with a monster engine. It just looks like a sports car, believe me it is not. If Ford, having refined and developed this car over the last 40 years, is happy with it, I have little confidence in any Ford product.
Pros: Craftsmanship of the car. No detail is overlooked.
Cons: An interior assit handle for exiting the car would have been nice, since the seats sit low.
Advice: Some transmission issues have been reported in the new models try, to buy one that has more than 200 miles on it to insure the transmission has passed the break in point. You won't want to give it up to have anything repaired once you have it!This car is best described as graceful. The power of the engine and overall weight are nicely balanced by the interior comfort features and town car style handling. The first car I've owned that I look forward to getting into everyday. And you can't beat the attention it generates from everyone. Now is a good time to buy with prices below MSRP and the 2002 custom colors of Desert Sky Blue and Mountain Shadow Gray still avialable. Next year's offerings of Merlot and Hunter Green are a bit disappointing.
Cons: When using a burnt cd, dont even think about having a homeade label. it will get stuck, and is even talked about in the manual.
Advice: Check with your insurance first.''this review is after 7k miles'' Wow, what an amazing vehicle. Now this is no 80k jaguar, but its not supposed to be! i got my GT brand new for 20k. It is comfortable, FAST, head-turning, FUN, and upgradable! I got the Red-Fire which looks absolutly amazing. the MACH 460 sounds very very good, and the in dash 6 cd changer is very useful. You have to get manual, and if you dont....well.....pshh...anyway, all i can say is good things.
Pros: The Awesome Power and handling.
Cons: Lots of room in front seats, not much in back seats.
Advice: Don't buy the 6. Pay the extra money and get the 4.6 V8I have had my 2003 Black Mustang for about 3 months..It is so Awesome.I have never been a big mustang fan until one day I was getting my oil changed and I thought I would just take a Mustang GT for a test drive. All I can say is that two days after..I was the proud owner of a new 03 Mustang GT.I have had many cars in my life and I will say it is the best and most fun to drive car I have ever had for the buck. My 11 year old son is in ' Hog Heaven '.. I don't know what else to say Except ' Just drive one.. ' Then you will know what I am talking about..
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.
