2002 Ford Mustang LX 3.8L from North America
A dream car turned into a night terror!
I took the car in for a mild interior rattle and when I got it back the whole interior rattled severely.
The horn broke.
The right panel bends out when the window is rolled down.
A very loud squeak comes out of the windows when they get rolled down.
My windows rattle when I drive on the freeway.
The engine almost dies randomly even when it is out of gear.
When I try to put the car in 5th gear the gear sounds like it grinds and I can't put the car in 5th gear.
The car broke down at 10,300 miles and I almost got plowed by a truck. It has been in the shop for just over a week.
Up to 7,000 miles everything was fine until these random things started happening. I often found myself yelling at a certain Ford dealership who could never fix anything even if I told them the problem.
This car is junk, if you want a good car don't get the very bottom of the line. The only mustang I would ever drive again is the Cobra or Saleen.
I used to love Fords and especially Mustangs ever since I was a kid, but this car has truly changed my perspective. I will never drive another Ford vehicle as long as I live. I never want to put up with the random problems and the terrible customer service ever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
