1989 Ford Mustang LX 2.3L 88 horsepower from North America
A great first car
There is a power steering leak, but nothing that can be easily fixed. There is a rip in the vinyl seats I have, but I can get that fixed. There also might be a radiator leak, but other than that really no complaints.
This car when it shifts from reverse to drive takes a while, but it's an old car so its expected. It handles A lot better than my wifes Toyota Camry, I feel. It also handles really well in corners and it is very easy to commute in. The gas pedal is firm, and it accelerates powerfully with it being a 4 cylinder. They seats are very comfortable, and the air conditioning works really well. This car also gets really good gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have same one, what ever you say that's right, I got with per tank (55liters) gas 485km, I just change fuel filter will see how much will be different than before I got, but I feel car getting faster, I recommended everyone every year change fuel filter... by the way they put it fuel filter so bad location under the car front side of the gas tank, if anybody want change so easy it will take 30 minutes. little bit gas run out, but not strong. just make new filter ready to put into the hose. first take out exit hose (going to engine side) after from gas tank hose. good luck...

A mustang is not a mustang if it doesn't have a v8!

A dummy isn't a dummy unless he needs to make his balls bigger by saying go V8.
The mustang 2.3 N/A is the best engine for both gas mileage and reliability. I had one with 300000 miles and it was never rebuilt... still had cross hatching on the cylinder walls when I took it out XD.

Parents loved these cars, not enough power to hurt their kids or anybody else. And the kids liked it because it looked sporty.
They sold like gold on the used car market to parents. I sold mine used the day after I posted the ad for list price.
