1997 Ford Mustang GT Coupe RWDReview

American Muscle At Its Best — A 1997 Mustang GT Coupe in Black, 5 speed Manual. 4.6L Ford Racing Crate V8 Engine. Flowmaster Catback, Eibach Springs, Shelby Shift Knob, White Face Gauges, MAC Intake, MSD Ignition, Drilled and Slotted Rotors all around, Pro 5.0 Shifter. A great car that's easy to love. It made wonderful sounds whether at full throttle or just burbling around town. Rough around the edges; material quality was only sub-par, but it is a Mustang. Solid Axle makes for interesting handling, but it still went around corners with some of the very best. Incredible straight line speed. Back seats are rendered completely useless, much better for a bag or a very small child. Trunk isn't much better as it's completely taken up by 4 amplifiers and the sub woofers for the Mach 460 Sound system, which happens to be one of the best stock systems available. Rattled, clanged, squeaked, and rumbled it's way down side streets, through allies, and into neighborhoods. A wonderful car that is dearly missed.

Pros: Incredible straight line speed, out-of-this-world fun factor, makes great noises, will still return 26mpg on the freeway, great sound system, cool factor

Cons: Suspension will rattle your fillings loose over rough pavement, live axle makes for less than predictable handling

As Long As You Take Care Of This Beast It Will Never Fail To Smoke Some One Next To You. — I bought this car with 125k miles. There is no leaks except for rear differential which is an easy fix. I have put on a MAC H pipe custom exhaust with out catylatic converters and it sounds like a cobra. Since it sounds like a cobra why not make it look like on with the cobra front end, suspension, brakes, emblems, and decals. Every person asks me if this is a cobra and I say in ways. This car may sound tough but it is slow. Yeah so what if you can floor it at 20 mph in first gear and the tires will smoke. I was going 120 mph and shifted into 5th and the cars front end sank faster than weights in water. So this car has been a great to me with 185k miles and still no leaks. I fixed the rear differential and only replaced a clutch and a key phob. This car is reliable, sick, and the coolest car to be made.

Owner for 2 years, 7 months

Miles Driven per Year:50,000

Pros: Reliable, Looks, Modifications you can perform, and the price of everything from the mods to the car its all cheap

Cons: GAS MILEAGE!! paint, light rear end, and the leather interior goes bad along with the console

Slow — Car was very slow as it was a V6 and at the time I owned it little to no performance parts were out. If it had been a GT or SVT Cobra I might still own it.

Pros: Black and looked good and it was a MANUAL!

Cons: SLOW

Excellent Entry-level V8 Power, Beautiful Styling, A Nice First Sports Car. — I bought a used 1997 mustang GT when I turned 17, it was black with a mustang svt cobra front end and hood on it. I modified all the piping including exhaust to up the power to the 300 mark (from 285). An excellent car but too many people have one.

Pros: Excellent acceleration, the styling and exhaust note got a lot of looks around town.

Cons: cheap looking interior (didn't have the leather package either), a fair weather performer only, easily matched or beaten by cheaper turbo imports.

It's Not A New Gt Mustang, And Its Paintjob Isn't Perfect, But I Still Love It. — Overall it's a pretty good car, it drives smoothly for the most part, its body is in pretty good shape. However the previous owner put a few dents and scratches in it so it could use a paintjob, but the previous owner also installed an alarm system and a stereo system which were left in the car at the time I bought it. It also shakes a little between 55 and 60 miles per hour, but other than that acceleration is very smooth.

Pros: Easy to drive, fully automatic, pretty good mileage for being 10 years old, near perfect interior

Cons: Could have better gas mileage, and could use a paint job

Great Car In The Looks Aspect, The Performance Is Great —

This car is probably the best thing I have driven. Performance on this car even though it is a V6 is great still very peppy and there is an underlying growl from the exhaust that will exhilarate anyone and make them think that they actually are driving a V8. As mentioned performance is great from either the automatic trans but I have noticed its more fun to drive in the manual trans version plus quicker acceleration and probable better gas mileage. Even though my car's build quality is low since I have had to repair a few things from the steering column to the starter and now the cooling fan these cars in better condition are great and very reliable. Appearance is great from the aftermarket goodies you can add on to this car from racing stripes to Dual Exhaust conversions if you have the v6. Gas Mileage varies on how well maintained the engine is I think it gets 19-21 city and close to 30 highway its very good for the V6 the V8 with the economy nowadays is a little expensive. Overall great car to drive for some real fun on a moist/rainy day slam on the gas either in a parking lot or from a cross street great tire spinning fun :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The color of the car, the stance of the car, the car's appearance, the performance of the car, the amount of aftermarkets goodies for this car and if you have the V6 version of this car don't beat yourself up it is great to drive

Cons: Most of things that I hate aren't even the cars fault it personal needs from the cars since I got it in bad shape, overall I enjoy the car.
