A Fine Sports Car — I really like the gas mileage, the sporty ride & using it in the summertime with the top down. I love the sound system & leather interior. I especially love the looks & nice comments about it. Makes me feel proud. Fine car

Silver Bullet — This car is a very fun vehicle for the weekends for going to the beach or just hanging out with your friends. I do not consider it an every day car since its a V8. Over all if your single and dont mind the 5 speed, go for it.

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.

Not Many Problems, Check Engine Light Frustrating, Low Power On Hills — I do not drive the car much, usually my wife does. I can say that when i drive it I find it to be ok on the power on flat roads or at high RPM. but pulling hills with more than 1 person in the car you can really feel the lack of power as it slows, even with a high level of maintenance. Otherwise, wife loves it. she would buy again.

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.

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

Fun car to drive and is comfortable on long trips.  

Cons

Has a weakness in the breaking system and exhaust manifold.  Is definately not a family car due to nonextstant leg room in the rear.  For 2 people only.

Silver Bullet Is Just A Lot Of Fun. — Great little sports car for the price. Parts are easily accesable. Gets about 22 MPG average. Is comfortable on the road, even on long trips. Highway mileage has been as good as 28 MPG. Definately not a family car. Very lettle room in the back seat and if you have a good bit of cargo, you have to fill the back seat, trunk is very small.

Pros

This is a Beautiful Vehicle that I purchased with just under 3,000 Miles back in 2008.  It was in amazing condition and I have no regrets, whatsoever.   Powerful Motor and the Sonic Blue Color is definitely a Head turner.

Cons

Minimal Back Seat room that would seat at least 2 People comfortably.  Gas Mileage isn't the greatest, but isn't the worst either.

Glad I Made The Purchase — As soon as I saw this Vehicle as I drove by the Dealership, I had to stop by and at least check it out. That was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made in my Life. At least that is what I'm told.

Luv My Pony...could Of Been A Little More Driver Friendly! — I luv any Mustang...they are sleek and let still unique in their curves!They scream old school muscle and adapted well with changes over the decades (most cars now a days look basically the same).
