It's a quick, nimble reliable car that I'd recommend to anyone
The transmission went out at 144,xxx miles, but that can be expected for a car that's 30+ years old.
The front seats are very low in stature, so the head rests come up to my neck, and I'm only 5'10".
13" wheels from the factory seem a little small, especially when driving down the freeway. Fitting later model Mustang wheels with correct spacing helps to solve this issue.
It is very fun, and has plenty of torque, which is needed to quickly jaunt around town without having to really lay into the gas. It's an easy car to drive when in a hurry, and it handles great, which can be partially attributed to its small size and weight of well under 3000 lbs.
The rear seats fold down so nice and flat. The cargo space is generous when choosing the hatchback version.
Parts can be harder to find, except for engine components, which are everywhere for a 5.0 Ford engine.
I am happy with the base model, as it provides all the amenities I need without being under equipped.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
