Pros

Nice power, with decent fuel economy. Definitely not a family car, but that's ok, my kids are grown.

Cons

Red, cant stand red.

Fun — Have no dislikes. Car is lots of fun, and economical also. I like the safety of how well it handles, and accelerates, as well as the economy. Easy to modify, parts readily available, and reasonable costs to upkeep make it an all around good car.

Great Alround Car — Great fun to drive, tons of power! •Performance - acceleration -10, braking - 10, handling -10 •Build Quality - 10 squeaks/rattles none with over 125k miles on it! •Appearance - both interior and exterior styling are fine with me. could use more cup holders but the fixed that with later year models. •Cost of Ownership - gas mileage- its not a hybrid, but is good on highway driving, maintenance- low cost, parts are easy to find and fix! •Fun Factor - Very fun to drive!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

It's a Mustang!!  I think Ford did a nice job with the curves on this series.  It looks and sounds great - although I still needed to do some 'tweaking'!  Having had a '96 Coupe prior to this, the handling was vastly improved with the GT.

Cons

Seat rail length could have been longer (I'm 6'2").  Stiffer cornering - it still suffers from some under steer.  More power - this car should have been beefier in the pony-plant, something I'm rectifying now!

Love This Car! — Significant look and handling improvements over previous models. Power is a little lacking - could have used another 50 horses. Drives well, corners well, brakes well. Front seats could use more rail to go back further with no rear-seat passengers. The rear spoiler adds needed rear aesthetics.

Pros

It looks great, sounds great, fun to drive. It is always fun to get in and drive around. The teenagers I have do not want me to part with it.

Cons

We've maintained it well. It had some squeaks and they were lose bolts in the chassie. Got those tightened up and now no squeaks. Burns the amount of oil you would expect from a car with this many miles, but not a issue.

A Very Fun To Drive Car. — With five speed transmission the acceleration is great. The custom exhaust system makes it all that more fun to drive. Braking is great with four disc brakes. Handles great. Feels very smooth at highway speeds. The car is always a thrill to drive.

My Mustang — I love my car even though it doesn't preform the best or look pretty right now. Its fun to drive most of the time. It only has the V6 in it so its affordable to drive. The body is shot and i hope to re-do it soon.

Not A Practical Car But Its A Blast!!!! — This is my everyday driver with many mods to make it a little more fun, In my opinion you have to make these cars a part of your personality so what you add to it just makes them more enjoyable to the owner. Not everyone may agree but its your baby enjoy it!!!!!

Great Year Mustang — This is a very nice car. I have headers and a true dual exhaust on it. Also installed a cold air intake. I get 29 MPG and the sound of a GT. Very fast. I leave all 1999-2004 models in the dust.

96 Base Mustang, 4.6 Swapped, Yes Its Fast — The car is a base model 96. Came as a V6 car. A complete V8 swap was done by myself, from engine to rear end. The engine is a 2003 4.6 V8 from a Lincoln Town Car. Engine mods so far are slim, Cold air intake, shorty ceramic ford racing headers, BBK X pipe. It handles like a dream due to the strut tower brace borrowed from a 96 GT, Also a K member brace from a 02 GT vert. The front end really holds together well. Mods for this summer include eibach drop coils over Tokico blue shocks with 4way adjustable caster camber plates. Subframe braces and solid control arms to stiffen up the rear end of the car. A new engine will be used from a 03 Roush stage 2 mustang with a stage 2 clutch and flywheel to help handle the 150-200 hp Nitrous shot, not sure which way i'm going yet.
