I bought this car while in college, with little money to fix it. Thankfully, the fixing was very minor, and very routine! Due to very neglected coolant, most of my cooling system has been replaced! Aside from that, knock on wood, this car has been very reliable! Only the O2 sensors needed replacing thanks to our government and its emission policies! The engine, after 220,000 kms runs just as strong as it did when I purchased the car! The interior needs attention, but that is purely cosmetic. Aside from a top replacement, some paint and 2 sets of tires (lead foot), I have had no problems to worry about! now that it is my toy and only sees the road for about 5-10k per year, I can start adding the mods! If you want a Budget Rocket, look at the older 5.0 liter mustangs for sure! Easy to work on, and fun to drive!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
