1995 Ford Mustang V6 4.0 liter from North America
Reliable, fairly sporty
Had to get it realigned twice within three months. This is probably due to abusive driving.
The plastic coating around the stereo is peeling off. This is purely cosmetic, however.
This car is fairly fun to drive, but the car seems a bit heavy and the suspension is not so great. This is by no means a sports car, even if it does look like one.
I spun out in the rain once, and have noticed it slips around in the rain a lot.
The non-GT V6 is more considered a girl's version of the Mustang.
Acceleration is smooth but going past 3,000 rpm it pointless, as it seems to quickly taper off.
The max speed is around 110 mph.
It is quite comfortable and I took an 8 hour trip with very little pain. I am also 6'4" and sitting in this car gets some getting used to.
Shifting with a cup in the cup holder is difficult because your elbow and the cup fight for space.
I averaged about 25-28 mpg.
It proved to be very reliable, despite my doubts about Ford. I bought it from my neighbor, who bought it new and never had any problems with it except the rubber on the cup holder breaking.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I think that V-6s are not to be considered for a Mustang.
Once it was known as a Corvette enemy (never had a V-6 as far as I remember), but nowadays its just another sporty city car for a reasonable price.
I think that Ford should think about taking it up to the golden days with a muscled engine even for basic versions.

Most reliable car I ever had. My mustang, a 5 speed, has over 190,000 on it, no kidding, never had any serious problems except that I had to get the water pump ($150) replaced at around 125,000 miles and a tensioner pulley ($25) twice. My driving is a little abusive, but still it never seems to let me down. I recently made a Houston, Tx to Chicago, IL, and back trip on it. Except for a little stiff clutch, no other problems till date. I am a little attached to it so I had been waiting for it to die, to get rid of it, which never seems to happen!!! It gives a decent gas mileage of 22 - 25 on fwy. But believe me, it is a nightmare to drive when it snows which I encounter only when I drive up north.

Agree with the original reviewer. V6 mustang = girls car.

What does your 94 or 95 Mustang V6 temperature pointer point to when running at the correct temperature? Which letter in Normal does it point to?

Well if YOU knew YOUR history you would know that it was not a carbed V6 it was an I6.
