Pros

Great car, especially in Socal weather. Despite its age it can handle multi-thousand mile road trips without any problem. Easy to find replacement pieces as well as the 3.8L V6 was produced for a lot of different Fords of the time.

Cons

Not a great family car... I can fit 4 people (exceptionally 5) in there but the rear seats are not very comfortable for adults.

Great Car, Fun To Drive And Easy To Maintain — Great car for all situations. Handles short commutes as well as long road trip. The convertible top is a joy to use as it is fully automatic. Good performance after 16 years of service. Looks really great for the rear.

My Awesomesupercooltotallyradical Car!!! — Would like to have better cup holders. There so close to the shift knob. If they could of put tray tables in the car I'd be a fat fat fat man. A neon sign in the window would be awesome so you could tell other drivers how bad their driving skills are.

Great Little Pony — Gotta say the 98 mustang is a great lil pony car. A true mustang all the way. Would for sure buy and cruse another one again. The performance and handling are great. You can feel the sports car in these pony cars.

Great Car! — I Thought it was an amazing car overall just wasn't the type of car i'm used to driving and wasn't really too great for being a family car. Just wasn't all that i was hoping to accomplish when I bought it

Pros

I've owned three cars in my lifetime ... a 1982 Pontiac J2000, a 1987 Buick Somerset (my little Cadillac) and a 1998 Ford Mustang GT.  I loved my Buick, but I have to say that the Mustang has been the best car ever.

Cons

Cons?  What cons?  It's black. It's a convertible.  Need I say more?

It's The Ktzmeow! — It's been the best car ever!!! It's 16 years old and has over 90,000 miles on it. All I ever had to change were the fluids, tires, brakes and battery. She's getting old and a little "rickety", but she's still the best!
