1980 Ford Mustang Ghia 2.8 V6 from UK and Ireland
Fun to drive, compact, and fairly economical
Nothing major went wrong on this car in the time I had it. The only thing I had done to it was servicing.
The only thing I can think of is having to replace tail-light bulbs rather a lot. They seemed to blow out quite frequently.
Alloy wheels suffered from surface corrosion.
One of the better cars I have owned.
Great fun to drive being a sporty rear wheel drive car. It drove similar to a Capri. In fact the 2.8 V6 fitted to my car was a German-built engine and was the same as fitted to the Capri.
Fairly economical on fuel. 26mpg.
Compact dimensions make the Mustang an ideal American car for the UK.
I also loved the fact that my Mustang was a hatchback coupe - it made it that much more practical.
Whilst quick it was no muscle car, being more like a cut-price European GT.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
