2000 Ford Mustang from North America
Ol' reliable Stang
Not a thing.
I bought this car new and have not experienced a single problem in 3 years.
Other than regular oil changes, no other repairs have been required.
It is surprisingly good on gas.
I drive it in the winter with winter tires and some weight in the rear and it handles snow and ice adequately.
With no additional rust protection the exterior looks new when washed.
I just wanted to express my great experience with this vehicle after reading all the negative comments.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with the positive comments about the Mustang.
I bought a 2000 Mustang (V6) used, with 29000 mis, in 2003, and the only problem I had with it was a squeak in the dashboard that was present only periodically when driving on the highway.
The car didn't hesitate when starting in temperatures below 0, got pretty good gas mileage on the highway (25+mpg), and was the most fun, comfortable car I've ever driven.
Unfortunately, the rear wheel drive poses a problem on ice (I did have 50lbs of sand in the rear of the vehicle, and it still slipped like crazy) ; I made the mistake of driving 60-65 over a patch of ice on the highway, and totaled the vehicle : (
With snow tires, the vehicle handled OK in the snow; I did have to be more cautious in the rain, but the car takes turns excellently when it's dry and the brakes were as good at decelerating as the car was at accelerating.
If I had the money, I'd definitely buy this same car, or upgrade to the 2005 model. Driving this car was like a dream.
