1998 Ford Mustang regular V6 3.8 Liter from North America
All show and no go!
Serpentine belt had to be replaced twice before 64,000 miles were put on the car.
Cruise control was replaced free because of recall.
CD player stopped ejecting the CD.
The air conditioning doesn't stay cold when I'm stopped at a light.
Driver's side window motor replaced at 60,000 miles.
Driver's side door lock actuator replaced at 64,000 miles.
The 1998 V6 Mustang is plain too slow. Anybody who says this car is quick is absolutely telling a big fib.
The seats are very uncomfortable because they tilt back at a poor angle. In other words, you have to spend all your energy holding yourself upright while driving. Adjusting the seats does not fix the problem.
The turn signal lever was cheaply made as well as the headlight light knob which pulls off when it gets cold outside.
The interior dash looks bare bones, every expense was spared.
I only get 14 mpg for city driving.
The car has too many rattles and other vibration sounds I can't identify. Actually, I don't even want to know where they come from.
Drives terrible in the rain and snow. I've gotten stuck in two inches of snow.
This car has gone through more tires than I can count, and I don't race it or drive hard.
Even on a nice sunny day, it rides and sounds like a John Deer lawn mower.
Riding over a small hole in the road makes this car want to crack in half. This car always had a horrible suspension, and I bought it brand new in 1998 for about $20,000.
I should have bought the Nissan Maxima instead. I almost did.
The only positive thing that can be said about the 1998 V6 Mustang is that it is a nice looking car from the outside. Looks can be deceiving and they are!
I would not take a chance and buy another Mustang.
Hasta La Vista, Mustang!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I believe my 1998 mustang has held up very very well, it has 170,000 miles on it and is still driving like a brand new car! I am very pleased with it!!!

I'm at 180k miles, still runs like brand new. The suspension is perfect, would burn any stock 4 cylinder, and 10000 miles later still don't need new tires, and maybe yours is slow cause it's auto.
