Pros

Takes me back to when parts were made of metal and easier to work on. A durable car and proven to still run over 200,000. Durability was a big concern. I had a terrible new 2008 Dodge Avenger. I said I'm going backwards and this car has given me peace of mind.  I had a Dodge Daytona for 16 years and it was great. I don't trust ANY new American car.

Cons

Check to make sure a common problem with some MUSTANGS "  Rear main seal" doesn't leak .  Check for rear bearing leaks. This will happen for older cars. Mine is over 10 years old so what do you expect.  Make sure it shifts good. This is a car that some may abuse. Ask for repair receipts.  Check your intake manifolds for leaks near the lower part where it goes down. Mine leaked. Like I said the car is older. But once the kinks are out you have a car that will last better than the plastic crap on the road. I have had MANY CARS for over 35 years and we work on our own. No bull here.  Also if you live where it snows put two large bags of tube sand in the trunk, Right in the middle of the trunk. I bought Bridgestone tires with a bigger, Deeper tread. Or buy snow tires Bridgestone blizzack tires. I've read people love them. One important thing:SHUT OFF TRACTION CONTROL. That is only for if you are driving in RAIN. You're tires will NOT MOVE when stuck if it's on.  I know from experience. I am a woman and I do fine.

Durable Car, Just Make Sure To Check For Leaks. — See above comments in pro's and con's. I am confident that this car will last. Make sure you find out what has been replaced. That will save you trouble because there are common things that go. But those things once replaced you will have a durable car. Rear end is light and I suggest two bags of tube sand from Lowes for the snow. Remember, You are buying an older car, Nothing is perfect sometimes. Unless you get all the receipts. If they have done dealership repairs, Take your VIN number to a dealership to do a search on what repairs have been done. I love this car. Tricky in the winter if you don't know the tricks of winter driving.

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.

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.

Great Car For A School Kid Or Military Person — The car has run great for me. It needs breaks and alittle interior work but, ultimately the car is great and is perfect for a school car or for cruising on the weekends. A really fun car. If you are looking for a reliable car that will last you awhile...this is your car

Great Reliable Car That's Fun To Drive And Won't Burn A Hole In Your Pocket — good reliable car with decent power and many options for performance/styling upgrades 0-60 in about 5.5-6 secs 14.5 on the 1/4 mile and she looks bad ass with some 18'' chrome 5 stars :D Havn't heard or seen any kind of major repairs... mechanically sound.

A Beautiful And Great Reliable Car. — I like this car due to the style, easy handling, sport looking. The things I dislike is the interior are made with mainly plastic. Maybe now a day, all the cars are created same way. I like it very much.
