2001 Ford Mustang GT V8 from North America


It's nice, but not reliable


2001 Mustang GT convertible.

It is an automatic, yet I've stalled out twice in one month. Also, the brakes sometimes make a vibrating sound (usually when I'm at low speeds), and I've gotten the brake pads checked etc, and the fuel injection cleaned out...

I have no idea what is wrong.

2001 Ford Mustang COBRA CVT 4.6L 32v from North America


You get what you paid for


The temperature gauge always HOT (56000 mls)! Dealer fixed it. So, they say. After a week the temperature still runs Hot! Went back to ford dealership twice and they cannot find what is wrong with the car. So, they say.

I finally brought the car to my friendly neighborhood mechanic. He found the faults are cracked cylinder head and block!!!

I could not believe that ford dealership did not find these faults!!!

I do NOT trust ANY FORD dealership!!!

I decided to take matters into my own hands and paid a local engine shop to rebuild the engine.

FORD will never see a dime from me, ever!

Bu the way, if you're wondering which Ford dealership... I live in Plano, Tx.

General Comments:

The car is nice looking...that's about it.

The ride is smooth only on smooth roads, otherwise... get another pair of kidneys.

Compare to my '87 Mustang GT this car is about the same in performance and handling. I prefer the '87 GT anytime!

If you must have an american muscle car I suggest buying a corvette! As the old saying goes, "You get what you paid for."

The Cobra is a much more refined car with 105 more H.P. than an 87' GT.

Clearly the reviewer doesn't own a Cobra if they're comparing the performance to an '87 Mustang GT. Even the earlier non terminator 00-01 Cobras are "tear your face off" muscle cars. They deliver blistering performance. Looks are NOT the only good thing about them. In fact, the looks don't do the performance justice.

Obviously he doesn't. I didn't even notice he said he had a Cobra until I read your comment. I thought he said he had a GT, which an 01 GT still has about 35 more horsepower than an 87, which should be noticeable. But an 01 Cobra is pushing about 315 or so horsepower, 100 more horsepower than an 87 GT, unless it has a built motor, which is another story entirely.

It's reviews like this one that make me not trust some people's reviews. Many people just wish to bash Fords/Mustangs and even the drivers sometimes. I don't have an ego problem or whatever, I mainly just like the appearance of the cars, and have ever since I was a little kid. Some people are just haters I guess LOL.

Fun when everything works right!


Coil-on-Plug Ignition Module replacement at roughly 34,500 miles.

Rear end shutter when shifting into Over drive: problem not yet addressed (it will be when or if necessary)

General Comments:

The usual suspects in Mustangs are my only complaints: so-so workmanship, seat belts tangle easily. The car is a blast though when the planets aligen just right and the car is in perfect working order...

Otherwise: I love the V8's performance and sound. Handling isn't too bad. This is a car I always wanted and I'm not totally regretting owning it.

2001 Ford Mustang GT 4.6 from North America


Love car lot's of performance for money


The rear end had problems from day one.

General Comments:

At first oil change (3000 miles) I noticed rear pinion seal leaking. Dealer replaced under warranty. At 7000 miles same problem. Again dealer replaced seal. At around 10000 miles I hear noise coming from rear end. Leaking again.Dealer has to rebuild rear end. At 15000 miles leaking again. I took the car back to dealer and told them I did not want the car. The dealer paid my car off which I was about $4000 in the hole on. And I bought a 2002 model actually cheaper than I paid for the 2001 model.

Now with 80,000 miles I have had no problems other than the amplifier going bad on the mach460 stereo.

On really cold mornings transmission is a little stubborn going into second gear. But no biggie, after a 5 minute warm up works just fine.
