1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Litre 302 from North America
Legendary promise that falls short
With the promise of great looks and legendary performance, I thought the Ford Mustang would be a cool car. Wrong!
First week I owned it a valve broke and it ran and sounded like crap.
In two months the distributer gear broke and I had to get the pieces out of the engine.
Brakes failed at less than 50000.
Transmission leaked and shifted at too high rpms.
Ford 5.0 was very sluggish for an 8 cylinder. Could only beat small engine cars.
Nice looks but it started rusting behind the rear wheels. From then on I call Mustangs "Rustangs".
Rear suspension flimsy even after replacing springs and shocks.
Rear tires wore quickly.
Not very reliable.
Swallows gas like a drunk swallows booze.
Next time I will get a Camaro. My 1980 Chevette was much more reliable. In my opinion the "Rustang" is not a real sports car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yet another person who thinks just b/c it's a mustang it must be a super car. They are not well performers in factory form, anyone who know mustangs know that. Take the effort and do a lil work to it.

The 1995 only came with 215hp from the factory. It was the lowest since the mid 80's gt.
The car has a lot of potential with minimal work. If you can turn a wrench there is easily another 50hp for less than $300 waiting.
I own one as well.
