1993 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 from North America


More power for your Dollar!


No real problems to report... This car eats rear tires, but I guess that is to be expected in a pony car.

I've broken a total of 6 lug nuts, which is a bit puzzling to me as I have never used slicks or drag radials on this car.

Disk brakes all around would be nice in a car that can see the naughty side of 150mph stock.

General Comments:

All I can say is that I love this car! It handles well enough to give E36 M3 drivers headaches, (prior owner lowered the car and added adjustable shocks and struts) With rear-gears and exhaust the car has enough oats to spin tires from a 30 mph punch. The ride with the lowered suspension is firm, but not punishing, this car is often driven on the crater-scape that is laughably called streets in D.C..

You are breaking lug nuts because you have changed the shocks and you drive on bad streets.

You aren't a rocket scientist by trade, are you?

Experts not beginners drive rear wheel drives!


I have noticed that the paint on the roof is fading to black (or chipping) in pin-point spots within a month of purchase from the dealership.

General Comments:

I totally love my 1993 Ford Mustang. Of all the cars I have seen at used car lots, this was a no-brainer steal.

However, I should have known that beginning drivers need not apply for the driving position in this vehicle. The over-steer is totally off the charts and sent me flying off the road recently. Being young and inexperienced, I decided to take a 90 degree turn (on a back road) with this baby at about 30 miles per hour with wet tires and the rest is history. I ended up upside-down in a ditch on the other side of the road.

The funny thing is, this car runs like a dream even after the roll-over. All this talk about weak factory jobs is senseless. Mustangs were built Ford Tough!

Due to the roll-over the vehicle now has a severe dent on the rear-right corner near the trunk that is about two inches squared. Also, there is a three foot scratch along the passenger side door that shows a little bit of metal and some denting on the rear passenger wheel base. The roof sustained several four inch square dents, but no scratches.

However, none of this is noticable when driving at night.

The Mustang is all stock except for my custom sound system, which gains the envy of pedistrians on the sidewalks and makes the homies in their plain old Hondas bow down.

**Update from author---Nov. 16 2003**

I have had the car for 7 months now and haven't driven for the last 2.

After a transmission seal at 107K there was coolant leak which lead(immediately) to the engine shutting off due to a cracked head.

Now the car sits awaiting a donation to somebody while I finance another car. Have my eyes on a 91 Mustang 5.0 Automatic.

The best bang for your buck


The clutch has needed replaced. I replaced it with a Ford Motorsport unit.

The transmission has needed replaced. I replaced it with a Tremec 3550.

The starter and starter switch needed replaced.

The sunroof weather stripping needed replaced.

The hatch weather stripping needs replaced.

General Comments:

I have really enjoyed this car, but I am a Chevy person and I miss the feel of a Camaro.

Although quick, I had to make it where it is today.

The handling is awful in stock form.

The brakes are embarrassing for a "performance" vehicle.

It turns heads, but again, I had to put a lot of money in it to make it stand out from all the others.

Hello, you are wrong. these cars have a great handling, I know because I own a '92 gt and I usually drive hard and I always corner at about 40 mph. on the brakes side I agree they had to be all discs. but you can upgrade yours too for a reasonable price.
