    5.0 If You Need To Ask....you Wouldn't Understand — What can I say bout her....its my 1st car i love it Mustang is the predilect sportscar for many people and ist meant for performance but as far as my stang performance...is isnt what it used to be in the old times the factory 225 HP are now...200 if lucky...it stills accelerate pretty rough and I serviced the brakes so it brake really good, bad for my burnouts thougt it still has that 22 year old suspension so handling isnt that good but its quite fair the car runs very smootly got a very intact interior all funcional except for A/C because I eliminated it.... these generation fo mustang are gettig very difficult to find and are getting expensive for that reason but its rare to fing one that is in a good shape gas milleage...well with a proper tune up every 3000 miles...is as good as any daily dirver and you will have a hell of a good time driving this car

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

    Pros: Its the legendary 5.0 is there any other reason?

    Cons: speed tickets...

    5.0 — Performance is alright. It's a bit underpowered for a 5.0 V8. The Brakes really could be better. Rear drums are a joke. Handling is great in a straight line... Build quality: It's solid but not to refined. Appearance: Interior looks rather dated, exterior is boxlike. It's a foxbody though, what can you expect. Cost of ownership has so far been rather low. Have only spent $105 since purchasing it. Fun factor: Sounds great when your punching it. Lots of torque.

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

    Pros: Power

    Cons: Brakes and handling

    Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

    Stellar By uvedicusmartin

    Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012

    Overall this car is a beast for the price and for what it is, 300 HP for a V6 you can't beat it, or the price. Ford has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them. Read More
