If You Get A Chance To Get One, Get It! — Amazing performance and acceleration. LOVE the V8 engine. Very low traction though, easy to spin out. Intake manifolds on this model have a lot of problems, like with mine. GREAT sporty look! Not great mileage, but not as bad as you would think, expensive parts. SUPER FUN car to drive.

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

Pros: Convertible V8, do i need to say more?

Cons: high maintenance costs

I Love My Car And I Would Never Trade It For Anything End Of Story. — My review?? Well I've barely ever had to take it to the garage for repairs and when I have its been the usual stuff. I hate when other people touch my car. Gas mileage isnt a factor. But as far as. being great on gas, shes alright. But im not complaining about that. Interior needs some love and thats my next step. Shes really funn to drive. Shes got an auto tranny but might change to stick. bottom line idc if you dont like my car shes my baby and im driving it and you never will so no need for this (;

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

Pros: mustangs are my passion.

Cons: its not yours (;

Sn95 Mustangs — Car has decent power for the price these cars cost. I love driving it gas milage isnt to bad for being a V8 but thats the price you pay when you have one. Turned heads with the loud exhaust and black bullit rims.

Pros: cheap,powerful, looks amazing, easily moded

Cons: Everybody has one

Power Ranked 2012 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"Everything !! My 1997 had the 3.8L V6, my 2012 has the 5.0L V8....the difference is like a musket vs a semi-auto rifle..the tech is from 2 different eras & you can see it & feel it when you drive the two mustangs , 0-60 4.5 seconds in the 2012 pony in the 1997 it felt like it took a hour in comparison "
Would Buy Ranked 2012 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible RWD better.
"Yes ....actually I bought one & I love her "
