Nice Reliable Car That Is A Real Eye Catcher — Great car that is easy to work on and loved by all. The five spewed gives great fuel economy even with the v8. I would have liked a stiffer chassis but it is a convertible after all. With the correct tires it was also fun to drive in the snow.

Every thing in this sport car is great.

Great Sport Car And Economic V6 — Driving this car was a dream come. Now, it is uneasy to drive it because of my spine surgeries. The car has lots of power being a 6.v and the cost of fuel is much less than a v8 you can go more miles. The drive is smooth.

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

Pros

I love this car, it was my "baby" I would love to keep her, but I just had a newborn son and I need a family car

Cons

The only negative is it can not fit a car seat.

I Love This Car — I love this car, I love the color, the sound, the feeling you get being in it and I love the premium package. This car will not let anyone down, in being reliable and won't let anyone down on expectations.

Reliable For A Responsible Driver. — I like -the price -the design -plenty of room in the front I disliked -the issue seat belts have of locking up -average miles per gallon -low acceleration when trying to pass at highway speeds (getting from 40-70) -Adults will not be comfortable in back

Pros

Fun, looks good, has enough power to have fun, sounds great, comfortable interior, back seats can be leaned forward for more trunk space

Cons

Some cheap interior plastics that rattle sometimes, seems like it takes a lot to gain just a little extra power from this car, hanging idle

Great Sporty Car — This car is certainly a blast to have and for being weak to today's standards, can still throw you back in your seat! Mostly just in 1st and 2nd gear though. This car sounds great and is fun to drive, though don't expect good gas mileage. I got 16 in the city. Many of these cars (including mine) from the New Edge line are infected with "hanging idle" and there seems to be no fix. The RPMs don't drop like they're supposed to until you're at a stop for about 3 seconds, otherwise they'll hang in the 1200-1800 RPM range, depending on your speed and such and it can be really annoying. Great car and a pleasure to have! Very comfy car to ride in. My legs don't go numb/hurt like they do in my mom's 05 Altima from longer driving sessions

Fun Car — This car was bought to cruise and turn heads while doing it. That is exactly what it did for us. Even though the back seat isn't very big it does accommodate our 13yr old son, and he of course loves it.

2003 Ford Mustang Gt — Awesome for first car or really awesome for anybody to own. These cars are cheap power and fun to drive. I have owned many Mustangs over time and never disappointed in owning. Once you go Mustang you will always want one.

Would Definitely Buy More — i loved it. only had it for a year sadly. i wouldn't mind keeping it i just would prefer a manual or something with a sport shift and 4 doors. its a great fun little car no question and for being a performance based car it doesn't really break the bank on gas mileage.
