"I bought this car as my first car in August of 2013. I bought it with 118,000 miles on it and its almost at 129,000 miles. Its has made a very good first car, decent gas mileage, doesn't look too bad. I recently moved to Washington state and drove the thing all the way from St. Louis, Missouri without any issue. My only problem is that these 99 Mustangs are known for electrical issues and mine has succumb to these problems multiple times. If you are like me and like Mustangs or want a good looking, reliable vehicle, then this car will do, but just be warned that there could be some wiring issues in your near future."
Pros: "I would love to restore it if it took me 4 years."
Cons: "It is worth just as much as u put in it."

"A guy has had it 3 years and keep it inside and it will have to be reconditioned with new hoses, Brakes, and put on new top that they have. Has to have new tail light and has to be painted also. No rust that I can see."
"looks like a streched pre puberty mustand. only thing that it has that is mustangish is the tail lights. At 60 - 65 mph it shakes and is hard to steer. shifting is horrible and drives like a light tank. do not like the seating or styling. doesnt like to start or stop. worst thing ever"
Cons: "Getting up there in age, but everything works!"

"I'm moving to Utah and can't take my GT convertible with me, so must say goodbye, but will offer it to the next lucky person who loves a GT convertible that has been well cared for.... 90% of the 178K mileage have been freeway miles, still got a great kick and loves to go fast. Body and finish are excellent, starting to burn a little oil, but all in all a great value and a lot of fun to drive!"
"I am an original owner of this car. It is my 2nd car an has been great. Replaced a few minor things throughout the years. It has been garage kept so the original paint is in great shape and so is the top. Great weekend car with the top down. It's a little rough ride but it is a 20yrs old."
"Excellent value used car for daily transit for seven years. Have made multiple road trips.Very comfortable and responsive driving. Only quirk is the design of vehicle make for a wide turning radius, not really a problem just a mention."
"This car was bought knew in 2003,and has never seen snow. It has had a life of ease.IT has ben very well maintained and not misused.IT has had a few glitches, but nothing serious. We enjoy taking it for Sunday drives but it does not ride like a caddie."
"The Mustang is like brand new , with Boss Graphics , Wood trim, a Supercharger never been race just gives a nice driving car. You couldn't replace it for less than 45,000 it has the regional wheels with new tires and Cobra wheel and tires with less than 6 thousand on them."
Pros: "great look great handle alot of power cheap price"
Cons: "simple inside not much trunk or back seat space"

"this is my 3rd car and by far the best car i have had..the fact that its a 2002 and its now 2014 this car still stands out and makes heads turn..alot of power under the hood so im able to keep up and most of the time pass the newer cars on the road...the handle on this car is great plus its easy to add on with your own style without spending to much..a true sports car..also its very easy to get parts for this car and easy to add your own custom style.....But the downside is the inside of the car is pretty simple plus the gas burns faster then most cars the back seat and trunk space really isnt that good...but i give this car a 10 out of 10 because for me the biggest downside is the inside style is simple but i can always add on parts to make it much better so its not really a big deal"
Cons: "small gas tank, lower gas mileage, small cab"

"Fun to drive, stylish and sporty, and very reliable. No major repairs have been needed since owning this car. I have been very happy with it. Though, it's basically a two seat car with some back seat storage area. Good luck trying to fit people back there. And I have to fill up on gas often, since it's a small gas tank and gets not-great gas mileage relative to other small cars. I would recommend this car for younger singles or couples without kids, as it's fun to drive. But don't expect your friends to be happy if you shove them in the back seat. It's not an ideal car if you're going on road trips often."
"This is a sweet little number that will not disappoint. It has classic Mustang Cobra styling and an engine that will move the car ahead quickly. It is easy to control. The seat fits like a glove. The car hugs the highway and moves easily through changes in road elelevation. Heads turn when this car drives by. The Mustang Cobra is impressive, fun, and dependable."
"This car is very fun! It is also very reliable. I have never had any big issues with this car. The handling of this car makes you feel like you're in a race at all times. The overdrive is useful, and you can turn it off, if you ever feel the need to. All around love this car. But, convertibles are not very practical for every day use."
Cons: "Steering, Stereo/Speaker System, Common Tick"

"I got this as my first car as a bargain because it didn't run, the alternator wire just needed soldered back on, ran pretty good with only a minor tick, notorious in the 4.6L V8 I am going to adjust the valves soon so it doesn't tick anymore. Overall a very good car. Fast, Reliable, the turning kind of sucks, but if you buy an older muscle car that is a given. Really love it, factory electric green with aftermarket tires and exhaust. Pretty fun car. I am always asked whether I like mustangs or Camaros and my response is always: "depends on the generation" and 99-04 I like the mustangs better. better sound, better price, better look and an overall better muscle car. The only complaints I have are the turning obviously, and the speaker quality, if you get one of these I highly recommend an aftermarket sub woofer or speakers."
