1993 Ford Mustang LX Hatchback 2.3L CID from North America
Great car and well worth the money spent on it
The problems I have had with this car haven't really been that major. First thing that went wrong was the hinge on the driver's side door decided that it wanted to break followed by the door handle freezing. I got the car in January so I blame most of that on the cold, snow and ice.
Secondly, the car started shaking really bad at idle and had no pickup. After changing a couple things with the fuel injectors and regulator valve, and realizing that wasn't the problem, I changed out the ignition system the coils plugs and ignition mod, and that fixed that problem.
And lastly, the shaking of the engine cause the tailpipe to disconnect itself from the muffler so a new muffler and tailpipe is the only other fix that the car needed.
For a smaller engine model of the model of the mustang, the car seriously still has some pickup to it and takes some pretty high speeds.
The interior and dash setup is very nice everything is right there where you can reach it even while driving.
Seats are extremely comfortable and versatile.
My only complaint would be that I installed a CD player into the dash and I can't stick a CD into the deck because the shifter is in the way.
That's nothing ford could have expected though since CD players weren't around when the car was made.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

About the CD player. My brother had the same problem. However the problem was easily remedied by pushing the brake, putting the car into reverse, and then putting the CD in.

CD players may not have been available from the factory in 1993 but aftermarket CD players were most certainly available in 1993.
Of course, Ford does not care whether you have a problem with an aftermarket stereo, in fact, it seems they have designed the dash of most of their late model vehicles to make it difficult to install an aftermarket stereo by incorporating the heat/ac controls, etc into the radio bezel, thereby forcing you to buy their overpriced, crappy factory stereos!
