1992 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 from North America
You get your bang for your buck!
I bought the car at 100,000 miles and Overall, I had to replace both head gaskets, which run a little over a hundred a piece.
New radiator at 103,000 miles.
The power window motors are a bit shaky, very expensive to fix.
Small tear in driver side seat.
Replaced both fan belt and timing belt.
Ford built one of the best and most affordable and reliable high performance engines when they created fox body mustangs.
The 5.0 motor can take tons of punishment before breaking down.
However, the transmissions can tend to have problems if they are beat on.
Great car for racing and summertime, terrible for winters. Don't even try to drive these in the snow... they won't go anywhere and the salt will rust them out very quickly.
Peformance is great, body is a bit fragile.
Overall, worth every penny... you get your bang for your buck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Always wanted a 5.0, but I have a '92 with the 2.3 and my first car was an '82 with the straight six. I really beat that one to death, and it always held up. It was really slow, but I cornered the hell outa it! This '92 is overall a better car, but it's a coupe and I liked the hatch look better. This 4 banger is quicker than that six was too. That car had a C6 trans too which was an odd combo. Couldn't find a replacement engine in which the bellhousing would fit the trans! Thanks for the chat. Later!

I too own 1992 Mustang 5.0 it's a great car I've beating Camaros to Novas, and I run pretty hard. It still runs like a champ, but the only problem I see is gas mileage, but its worth it.
