2000 Ford Mustang GT Convertible 4.6 Liter from North America


Decent car with lower quality than I expected


The dashboard has rattled since the day I purchased it. The window had a large cut taken out of it, which the dealership replaced for me. The seat belts would lock at random times, the dealership fixed this as well, unfortunately I already had the windows tinted, and they would not cover the cost of the tinting ($25 more out of my pocket).

Since then, the passenger side actuator has gone out, the door will no longer automatically lock. The fuel injector became dirty clogged even though I changed the filter ever 15,000 miles. A bearing tore up and trashed the rear end differential ($1300 to fix it, the differential, and have the right axel replaced). The driver's door is not properly aligned, and the window on the door has broken free of the clasps that hold it in place twice. Ford chose to use cheap glue, instead of screws on their windows, in order to pass the cost on to the consumer.

General Comments:

This car has had a few problems, with the differential being my main concern, other than that I am fairly satisfied with the quality, although it is not quite what I had expected from Ford.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 1999 Ford Mustang GT. Chrome Yellow, (also referred to as Canary Yellow), it's a hardtop. There is minimal aftermarket engine work done to her. She has roughly 86,000 miles on her. She is in perfect condition inside and out, I'm OCD about my cars and more specifically my engine. I have a stripped U-Joint I think, but I was going to clarify it with other owners who might be able to better diagnose the situation. There is a bit of slack from the time the engine picks up to the time the wheels catch. Not much, but I can notice it. Like a delayed reaction I suppose. Also when I put her in overdrive sometimes there is a slight jerk like the engine was having to catch up to the axles. What do you think?

You have an automatic transmission. It's not like a manual where everything is direct, it's all hydraulic servos/bands/clutches, etc. So when you hit the throttle the power goes through the torque converter and through all the servos before going to the rear-end.

Great engine, convertible, beautiful body style, need I say more?


The latches for the roof were a little difficult to get into place occasionally.

General Comments:

I bought this 2000 Mustang GT convertible soon after I wrecked my 1999 Mustang GT coupe. The coupe was of course faster, but the convertible experience was well worth the.x seconds added to my 0-60 time. This car is extremely fast, handles great, and is well worth any dinero you shell out for it. I am currently looking for a 2004 SVT Cobra convertible (Can you say SUPERCHARGED). :) Furthermore, I have to say that the 1999-2004 body style is more appealing at the moment than the incoming 2005 model.

I recenty bought a 2000 Mustang GT convertible. Its just simply amazing. The 5-speed is fast and smooth. I have Flowmaster super 40's ordered. Other than that those are the only mods so far. Great car.

2000 Ford Mustang 3.8L V 6 from North America


I've only had the car two months, and already major repairs. But I blame the previous owner


Currently at the dealership getting the rear end rebuilt.

Getting the transmission yoke replaced.

Sometimes the idle will peg at 1200 RPM.

General Comments:

This car is definitely fun to drive. Very fast for a V6, and will get faster after I install the computer chip and the Mack dual exhaust on my wish list.

It's a bit tight on the interior for my 6'3" frame.

Yeah, well most people buy mustangs because they like the power... so buying from a previous owner probably means he's done a fair share of stuff that will result in money loss...

I'm not really sure if I want to buy a used mustang... but on the other hand it would be a lot cheaper in the beginning.. kinda like a gamble even if you know your cars..
