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

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.)

Young And Fun - American Classic! — This was my first and only car, I have owned it for 14 years!! I have had long work commutes over the years, and always found the car very comfortable and smooth. But enjoyed the sporty feel of driving a Mustang! Decent gas mileage, decent repair costs... Happy driving!

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.

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.

2000 Ford Mustang Convertible — Slower than it looks. Moves when I need it to, but the high mileage kills it from time to time. Body is mint, can't find many imperfections. Everyone thinks my car is brand new; it's 8 years old. Very nice car to cruise in, and I enjoy it a lot. Great drive.

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.

Pros

Fun to drive, quick acceleration with excellent traction, corners well with good tires

Cons

Too much road noise, brakes lacking, lowered suspension provides a bumpy ride on poorly maintained road surfaces

Sexy — With a 4.11 axle ratio the 4.6 liter stock engine is rather snappy without to many revs on the freeway. Fun to drive on warm days with the convertible top down. Good gas mileage for a hot rod. The lowered suspension does not lend to a very comfortable ride for long distances. the brakes on the car have need for improvement.

Pros

Very reliable, nice looking, affordable car. Purchased specifically because of a 90 round trip commute. Drove it into the ground (165K) but it still looked, handled and performed great.

Cons

Small back seat, limited storage space.

Long Galloping Mustang — Purchased it specifically to drive into the ground because of my 90 miles round trip commute. After driving it for a month or two, I noticed there were a TON of other silver Mustangs on the road. So, I decided to make some minor modifications. Added stripes on the sides, blacked out the center of the hood and the center of the rear trunk area. Also added lowering springs which really added to the looks and the handling but negatively effected the ride quality (as I used to saw, you could run over a quarter and tell if it was heads up or tails up). The Mach 360 stereo was decent enough that I didn't feel to need to modify. Gauges were easy to ready, fit and finish was very good.
