"I bought this car new & it has held up fairly well even though it is not garaged. After 5 1/2 yrs I did have leaks above the passenger side window & rear seat well. Both were repaired for $80 each. I've been amazed how many people have commented on the styling & look of this car. I wanted a 5 speed manual with a back seat, and the Mustang was one of the only cars with those features. However the cute back seat has gotten too small for my pre-teen children."
"The only down sides are the head restraints. Newer models have taken this into account and Ford has put higher restraints in the auto. This car is NO I said NO good in snow or ice. Too much HP and so it las little traction.
I bought this car new and it has been garaged for it's life. Absolutely mint condition."
"Just as the Title says... The best vehicle ever!!! The mustang is probably the best bang for your buck you can get out there! Reliable and packing some extreme horsepower!!! Great ride! Will not be disappointed!!!!"
"Bought 03 mustang well under it's value, because of new body style. However, it has same performance capabilities, and has better handling than a newer mustang. With very little investment (exhaust and intake upgrades) it can out perform most other sports cars for far less money."
"I bought my 96 Mystic cobra new with the intentions of keeping it original. Now 11 years later and after showing it for a few years there are over 64 first place and best of show trophys in the garage. The only issue with the car was the drivers seat switch failing. I had the cooling system upgrade done just to be safe.
The car has 14,000 car show miles on it now and it's still like new."
"At 100k miles this car has earned my respect, as I have only replaced the battery and tires. It has never broken down! Ford really did a great job on this one. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a stylish and dependable car. My manual tranny gets between 26 and 30 mpg at all times. I just love it..."
