One Of The Best I've Owned — I bought a black 2002 V6 Mustang. I had bought a new 2008 Dodge Avenger since I had good luck with a 89 Dodge Daytona for 16 years. The first new car I ever bought and it was worst. AFTER OVER $3,000 dollars in repairs and two fires that was it. I said I'm going backwards, No more new cars. My Mustang is much more better built inside and out. If people don't like the interior they outta look at a 2008 Dodge Avenger. Lol The Mustang seems to be easy to change things out. The oil pan is the only thing I see as a pain. I hadn't had to change it. The motor has to be lifted to change the gasket. Besides that I love the car. Remember, You are buying an older car. That doesn't mean that's bad. Find out what was already done if you can. The rear engine seals do leak and people do have trouble with the sending unit. Mine was replaced and I calibrated the gauge myself and now it's better keeping track of gas. As for going up hills, I have no idea why some people said on here no power uphill. That's one thing I appreciate, Because my 2008 Avenger was terrible going uphill. This flies uphill. One more thing, People reading these reviews are not reading about the car being new. These cars have probably been through two or three owners. Remember some people that bought the car used and it's already 10 or more years old do not know if it's been abused,etc. So they give bad ratings. I was fortunate to buy from a second owner and it had been garaged in the winter and had all receipts for work done. ALWAYS check Carfax. I think you can run the VIN number through a Ford dealership and see what has been done IF they even used a dealership. UPDATE: 1 year later : I still love the car. No problems.

Cons

Too stiff a ride for an everyday car.

Modified Mustang Gt — This car is extremely fun to drive....with traction control OFF. My car is a Mustang GT with some modifications, mostly to the appearance. The mechanical mods are, Flowmaster exhaust, cold air intake, a K&N air filter, slotted and drilled brakes and a short throw shifter. Pretty basic. But I never said I was finished. Soon to come are headers, a performance X pipe and a supercharger. The ride is pretty stiff as you could imagine and that would have to be the only complaint I have about my car, but the power more than makes up for it. With today's gas prices it costs me about 54 bucks to fill it up from 1/4 full. So again that's 54 dollars for 3/4 of a tank. NOT cheap. With the amount of driving that I do, 3/4 of a tank will last about a week. I would probably get better gas mileage if I toned downed my driving. But it's a Mustang. I currently get 20 mpg in the city and about 25 on the highway with the mods on the car. Like I said I could get 22-23 mpg in the city if I slowed down but that's what my other car is for. Over all it is a fun car to drive and I haven't had any problems at all, knock on wood. Many people think fords are crap along with other makes but my philosophy is that if you take care of your car it will last forever, no matter what it is.

Its Awesome — This mustang gt is really fun to drive! The maintenance is pretty easy, things are easy to fix on your own and are relatively cheap if not able to fix by self. Has a cold air intake and U/D pullies.

Great Car! — Amazing acceleration, decent brakes, and great handling. This is my second mustang and I love it! I had a '97 Camaro and a '02 Z28 Camaro and neither came close to my GT's performance. Gas mileage (city) is not great, but highway is okay. Black leather interior is nice.

Love It! My First Muscle Car...if You Can Still Call It A Muscle Car. — LOVE THIS CAR! Not to pleased with the fact that Ford only squeezed 270 out of a 4.6L, but that's where we tuners get to play right? She's good off the start, and keeps hauling until 5th. Haven't had to many problems, only replaced brakes and turned rotors. Had an electrical issue, but cleaning the contacts and buying one of those anti oxidation kits fixed that up right quick. She looks good, would like to put new paint, and definitely need to replace the headlights. She drinks gas, so if your an eco kind of person, not for you. Eats tires too if you give her the throttle pretty hard, but be gentle, and you can keep a pair of rears on pretty long. So far, this stang has a K&N CAI, and the exhaust has been replaced, but I don't much about it other than it has a H pipe, resonators and such that aren't stock. Next on the list is an Edelbrock throttle body, some headers, and finally a tune once she's decked out....until I find a twin screw for her!
