Fast But High Maintanance — I love the car I just hate ford lol but overall it has great power and handeling especially on take off fuel economy sucks but hey its a high horsepower car so what do you expect. by no means a daily driver unless you make the money to burn the gas

Pros: look, and feel of the car on the road

Cons: keeping the car maintained so it will run, everytime i fix something something else breaks

Fantastic Car — The performance is great. From the moment you turn the key and hear the growl of a great throttle note, you can tell this car has power. Acceleration is fantastic - even in 5th gear at 70 mph, plenty of extra horses to pass easily. shifts like silk - no need to fight this one. One warning - NEVER take off the traction control, unless you are on a track and want to light up the tires. Handling is great as well - sticks to corners and has the power to smoothly accelerate out of them. The same goes for hills. Makes this an extremely fun car to drive. Finally, the front bucket seats are amazing - very comfortable, even on long drives - great lateral support for sharp cornering. The back seat is nice, but front passengers will not be able to have seats fully moved back unless rear sea passengers are small or contortionists. The back legroom is about the only complaint here, but fone for relatively short distances. Overall a fantastic car.

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

Pros: Performance, handling & passenger comfort

Cons: Back seat a little cramped for adults, but not unmanageable

When I Bought It I Was A Tuner With No Appreciation For American Muscle — at first the man clutch was a little stiff but i got used to it the only complaint i have is that every redlight warrior wants to race when they see the cobra badge now i just wave them on

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

Pros: FAST and with the independent rear axle and suspension handles like mustangs don't

Cons: speed limits, wife griping about, it rain

A 'wow' Car. Highly Appreciated For What She Is. — I like the mod exhaust noise. It makes you feel like you are bringing a jet to the road. It also handles very well for city and highway speeds. But in case you want to try the machine out, you have the chance with this one. On a raceway, I did 140 mph and slowed because my mom freaked out. The previous owner did 175 mph once. It has the muzzle. True pony.

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

Pros: Power, style, head turner, sport tuning, loud roar, show car :)

Cons: Low mileage, gets the police's attention too, tires too wide for off-road/gravel driving. The high torque causes spin-out.

Good Solid All Around Daily Driver. — Decent all around car. Very good handling, reasonable acceleration and braking. Build quality was probably average for 2001 but would be below average today. The styling was quite nice on the exterior, decent on the interior. Fuel economy was about average for the performance although today's vehicles would do much better. Had some expensive repairs like ABS/TC module which cost about $1400 to fix, rear half shaft seals leaked which was another expensive fix. Other than that the car was extremely reliable

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Decent all around car for the year

Cons: Squeaks and rattles drove me crazy.  Probably typical for that era convertible.

Overall A Good Sporting Car For Looks And Driving — everything inside and out of this car is solid and not once had problems with it until the person who sold it to me gave me wrongful information knowing that something could have happened by there knowledge. really a nice car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: powerful and sharp looking. really makes you feel like your in a good spot for peoples eyes.

Cons: not good on gas usually when traveling long distances. and when you forget about the use of 91-93 oct gas only and put 87 oct in it it bogs down and there is a decrease in power.

Ultra-fast Fun — All around a great muscle car. Powerful, it hugs the road and maneuvers very well at high speeds. From a dead stop, acceleration really gets it! I love everything about this car, from its looks to its price! Worth every penny.

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

Pros: Head turner for sure, and with this motor, you can't be discreet.  All muscle, it's so fun to drive!  Excellent acceleration, handling and braking.  It hugs the road and has precision steering.  

Cons: Motor seems loud on the inside, but I love it that way!  I can't find anything wrong with this car, other than the price of gas!  Not a family car, due to backseat modifications for racing purposes.

Mustang Cobra: Domination — One of my current Mustangs is a 2001 Ford Mustang Cobra. Although I have upgraded the exhaust, suspension, and wheels, the car was already amazing stock. Any one who drives a Mustang Cobra will fall in love and be amazed at how far back in the seats you go when the throttle is maxed.

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

Pros: Engine has nice purr, even with stock exhaust.

Cons: Handling on the track could be better.
