1995 Ford Mustang 2-door coupe 3.8L V6 from North America
Good (not great) car
Head gaskets replaced at 91,000 miles.
Rebuilt rear-end at 150,000 miles.
OEM paint flaked off gray primer near right-side roof pillar because of inadequate factory prep; repaired at a local body shop and looks as good as new.
MAF sensor went bad in first 20,000 miles. Replaced and no problems since.
Driver's side window regulator bad at new car delivery. Replaced under warranty by the dealer.
Right-side window regulator adhesive gave way at 75,000 miles; repaired at a local glass shop. No problems since.
OEM radiator replaced at 130,000 miles.
Bought new, garaged its whole life, still looks brand-new.
Driver's position could use more legroom.
Base radio has good fidelity, but the control buttons are too small.
Fast enough once it gets going, and a good interstate driver with high MPG for its class and engine.
Comfortable base seats, but the headrests are way too low.
Smooth-shifting transmission, but there's a noticeable shift into O/D at minimal engagement speed (45 mph).
Excellent stopping power, dust-free operation of OEM disc brake pads. OEM pads still on the car.
Quiet cabin for its class.
Outstanding A/C system with 38-degree F output at the vents with OEM 134a fill at 19 years of age. No problems whatsoever.
Still have the OEM alternator, water pump, P/S pump, starter motor on car.
Burns no oil; 5w-30 natural used exclusively with 3,000 mile oil/filter changes since I bought the car.
Added 16" OEM "waffle wheels" that came standard with 5.0L V-8, plus 225x55R Turanza Serenity tires at 110,000 miles. The car now has the stance and look of a 1995 V-8; much improved aesthetics.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
