Pros

Acceleration, Handling, and Braking all Performance level.
Maintenance is simple and all parts easy to reach.

Cons

Pales in comparison to other cars in the same class due to its middle-of-the-road design. With a large V6 in a car designed for a V8 it lacks power, and wasn't intended to handle like the common V6 imports.

Peppy, Light, And Flashy V6 Model — I absolutely love this car. It keeps me in the comfort of an American style sports car: roomy, with space to expand (both passenger count and engine size), while also providing a low center of gravity and light body, combined with smaller wheels to give me that rice-burner-esque handling. However, with this car being an all-rounder, it doesn't exceed at any one task, other than looking sexy. After a good bath and wax, it seems to be smiling at the camera with every little sparkle in its metallic finish paint. Other than that though, in sports car terms, it is mediocre in all departments. It can accelerate to 60MPH quickly, but easily beaten out by smaller cars with less weight, or bigger cars with more power. It also has good handling, but will be far outshined by other models such as the Nissan 350Z or even something as simple as a Honda Civic or other import. And it's not just in the import market either. If put up to the test, it would almost certainly be beaten out by new models of the Cobalt from Chevrolet, or the Pontiac G6. To round it out, it is a joy to drive. My previous car was a good condition Chevy Camaro, late 80's model. Being only a small 3.1L V6 I didn't get much of that American Muscle action you'd expect, and the heavy frame made my handling suffer, so switching from that to the 2000 Ford Mustang is an upgrade in every department, with a lighter body weight, a larger engine (3.8L V6), and a shorter body combined with lower center of gravity, it makes every drive that much more enjoyable.

Pros

Straight-line Acceleration, Looks/Style, Sound, Performance, etc. etc the basics.

Cons

Cheap interior, handling, so-so reliability, lack of synchros for reverse gearing.

55

Unrefined Muscle Car Fun — My Mustang was stock for all of a week when I first bought it so I can't comment much on that. I put on Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers which give it a borderline obnoxious 70's style rumble throughout the RPMs. As for other performance mods it responds well and gives more noticeable gains than most cars. It's handling, while not great, is predictable at least. It takes a little more attentiveness to park perfectly straight but nothing you can't get used to. The lack of synchros for the reverse gear can lead to some aggravation since no trick I've found works 100% of the time. Clutch pedal effort might be a little too much for some due to the cable clutch setup found in all Mustangs (versus hydraulic clutch standard in most cars) and the upgraded clutch in the '99 and up Mustang GTs required due to the higher power rating. The interior has some squeaks and rattles, but nothing too bothersome and you wouldn't buy a Mustang for luxury anyways. The interior looks good though which is good enough for me. Reliability is so-so. Like all cars it has it's issues. To save money, Ford used plastic Throw Out Bearings in the Clutch Assembly, which typically are lucky to last 40,000 miles. While there are temporary solutions, it's an expensive job to get professionally done and a weekend job for the do-it-yourself crowd. The drive belt tensioner isn't made well, and typically squeals. I'm on number 3 which has just started to squeal and I've only put 10,000 miles on the car.

Pros

Looks and drives great on the street as well as the track. Runs aggressive and is very stylish and clean. Well kept and the parts are very inexpensive. A sports car that can be driven to work as well as the track.

Cons

Not the car you want to drive in rainy weather. 18 mpg city 20 mpg hwy.

Its A Sports Car. High Performance Vehical Built For The Track And You Can Drive It To Work Everyday — I like it because its aggressive. Not your normal Mustang of coarse. Very stylish and handles well. But not a good car to drive in the rain. you must be careful when hitting the gas because it will get away from you.

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

Pros

It's a V8, kinda beefy and love the modern muscular look.

Cons

If you're looking for fuel efficiency don't buy a GT!

2000 Mustang Gt — Heavy foot=NO GAS, I get 10-12 mpg. She is fairly responsive, or responsive enough to at least get a few tickets with! She is a very fun car to drive and the grumble from the exhaust is music to my ears!

Cons

Love It — Great performance, great convertible top...love to ride with it down! Stylish chiseled exterior, one thing that is bad is that convertible tops tend to leak. This car is fun to drive! Gas mileage okay, but could be better! LOL

Fun and in my budget.

Cons

Ford stop making parts for it, and I have to get 2003 parts. They have to be modfied to fit.

35

Fun — I like that it wasn't expensive, but it lacked the factory horsepower to compete with cars in its class. Still lots of fun and I put it through hell and it's just started to fall apart after 110,000 miles of abuse.

Will always make the driver smile and the passengers scream

Cons

If no exterior mods you'll blend in with other mustangs

Great Car! — It was cheap. Its fast. Classic V8 Sound.... and Torque! The mod options are endless. Personally beat 350Zs, G35s, Cobalt SS, new Charger R/T, and a 4th Gen Camaro Z28....all with minor bolt ons.... not to mention its been very reliable.

2000 V6 Mustang Convertible — Fun to drive, looks great, good convertible, sound system decent for stock, sounds good with catback borla exhaust. Average build quality, but worth minor rattles for looks. Could have better seat support. Back seat very minimal. Feels good to drive and looks good in Atlantic Blue. Style bar addition and chrome magnum 500 wheels make the car sweet looking.

Easy to work on and many mods available.

Takes a bit of money to make them fast.

Great 2 Door Sports Car — Great car overall. Interior fitment is loose. Road noise level is a tad on the high side. Lots of fun to drive after some suspension and power mods. Many diy projects and places to find parts at a descent price.
