First off, I would like to say this is a nice car, with issues. The car was bought in Wisconsin at a local dealership, It had never seen winter, so it was in nice shape. When I bought the car, it had a crack on the hood, where the latch was. The dealership repaired the hood, free of charge, and replaced a couple of other broken parts on the car. Then I moved to Texas and, a couple of months later, I noticed that the crack had returned. So I called the local dealership and they said this was a common thing for that year Mustang, and the hood had to be replaced. The estimate was $1250. I called my Ford dealership, back in Wisconsin, and they said they would put up $250 for the bill. So, I ended up paying out of my own pocket to have it fixed.
Then I started hearing this loud clucking sound every time I drove over a bump. I looked under the car to see what it was. I discovered that the balancer at the front of the drive shaft had broken and was freely spinning on the drive shaft. When I went to the Ford dealership to get the parts, I was told this was also common in Mustangs of that year.
Like most cars with 60,000 miles, the tie rods went bad and had to be replaced.
Leather seats need to be replaced.
Needs a new Convertible top.
Overall, the Mustang has been a great car. It's very fun to drive and it gets looks when the top is rolled down. I finally figured out why my company offered so many different types of super chargers for this car. Because of it's lack of power, when it really counts, out on cruise night. I even tested the safety features, myself, this last February, in a near fatal (for the car, that is) collision, Everything worked as the Ford engineers intended, and I walked away unharmed. I would recommend this car to any young person looking for an attractive ride. All it needs is some engine tuning and nice rims.
