Just Another Mustang! — I am not a Ford person and this just became another Ford problem for the owner. Although the car looks amazing, the engine was such a hassle like many other Fords.

Pros

Incredible straight line speed, out-of-this-world fun factor, makes great noises, will still return 26mpg on the freeway, great sound system, cool factor

Cons

Suspension will rattle your fillings loose over rough pavement, live axle makes for less than predictable handling

American Muscle At Its Best — A 1997 Mustang GT Coupe in Black, 5 speed Manual. 4.6L Ford Racing Crate V8 Engine. Flowmaster Catback, Eibach Springs, Shelby Shift Knob, White Face Gauges, MAC Intake, MSD Ignition, Drilled and Slotted Rotors all around, Pro 5.0 Shifter. A great car that's easy to love. It made wonderful sounds whether at full throttle or just burbling around town. Rough around the edges; material quality was only sub-par, but it is a Mustang. Solid Axle makes for interesting handling, but it still went around corners with some of the very best. Incredible straight line speed. Back seats are rendered completely useless, much better for a bag or a very small child. Trunk isn't much better as it's completely taken up by 4 amplifiers and the sub woofers for the Mach 460 Sound system, which happens to be one of the best stock systems available. Rattled, clanged, squeaked, and rumbled it's way down side streets, through allies, and into neighborhoods. A wonderful car that is dearly missed.

Pros

Black and looked good and it was a MANUAL!

Cons

SLOW

25

Slow — Car was very slow as it was a V6 and at the time I owned it little to no performance parts were out. If it had been a GT or SVT Cobra I might still own it.

Pros

Easy to drive, fully automatic, pretty good mileage for being 10 years old, near perfect interior

Cons

Could have better gas mileage, and could use a paint job

35

It's Not A New Gt Mustang, And Its Paintjob Isn't Perfect, But I Still Love It. — Overall it's a pretty good car, it drives smoothly for the most part, its body is in pretty good shape. However the previous owner put a few dents and scratches in it so it could use a paintjob, but the previous owner also installed an alarm system and a stereo system which were left in the car at the time I bought it. It also shakes a little between 55 and 60 miles per hour, but other than that acceleration is very smooth.

Pros

i like that it is very cheap to maintain

Cons

i hate that my mom gets the oil changed every 3 months when she drives to atlanta 3-4 days a week

25

It Really Is Built Ford Tough — its ok in the preformance area. it could have some more power and torque but hey, thats what the gts are for. its pretty reasonable for a sports car that are presumed to be owned mostly by girls. the car is very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation
