No Title — Wont handle turns at speed very well, doesnt launch very well. Would do alot better with different rear end gears. Would like to have to 5 speed out of a mustang out in. better wheels, tires, and lower stiffer suspension would be great. and gov. delete. along with some motor work would make this car a blast to drive. pretty comfortable interior. and love the sunroof.

Good Car To Get From A-b — I like the fact that the Gas mileage is good, gets up around 18mpg, going to put a performance chip in it so it hopefully gets about 22mpg. Has good horsepower as well, but being a light car, the automatic transmission creates high RPM's when accelrating causing wheel spin in the rain. Also if wet it slides if you need to brake to hard. A deer ran in front of me when it was foggy out and i wa doing about 30-35mph uphill and slammed the brakes because it came so close and the car slid about 10ft uphill.

Great Car To Have, And Play With, And Surprise Others With. — performance. just needs better rear gears for better get up and go. but then you wouldnt have the gas mileage it gets now n then. build quality. pretty good. no major complaints. usual rattles from the aging. appearance. defintely recognizable. cost of ownership. quite abit lately. everything needing changing lately. electronicly. fun factor. i like it. unexpected looks, and attempts to race it from other import cars.

Good Car For The Money If You Are Looking For Something — Nice feel to this car. Good acceleration. Decent handling. An overall pleasure to drive. We take this on long trips for the gas mileage. It gets better than 30 mpg while cruising around 75. Very few repairs done other than regular maintenance. The old V8 still starts right up every time.

Sleeper — its a really fun car and is a sleeper to say the least.this is my second one and i will probably own this car thill it hits the scrap yard...i would like to find another one in not so perfect condition so i can build it to be a track car because i do not want to destroy the value of this car because it will probably be worth money some day to a serious ford collector.

was fun to drive, good economical performance

Was A Great Car To Drive, Very Enjoyable. Missed On A Regular Basis. — The 4.6l engine was awesome in this car. Plenty of power. Car was comfortable, got great mileage, especially on the highway. It even got around good in the snow if you knew what you were doing, I drove it through 4 pa winters without ever buying snow tires. Was fairly reliable, had to replace the catalytic converter and the computer once. Tires lasted forever on it.

_ — Had her since she was born, all 65K miles belong to me, ordered it from Ford in 1993. Added a new engine in 2008, now its a Jasper with more ponies under the hood. The orignal engine blew up in 2007. Took awhile to fix but this car is fun to drive in the summer
