Still in love with this car.

I love this car, but I know that it has its issues. Like every ford, the interior is not top-notch like you would see with an import vehicle. I owned a 2000 ford focus in high school and the interior dash panel, where the tiles are to adjust the temperature and radio are exactly the same. You maybe would expect it to be a little bit different considering the trim of my vehicle. My car is 11 years old, and the Florida sun is starting to wear on it. However, if you keep this car in the garage, I would say that the convertible top would stay well preserved. The Florida sun and rain is harsh. The top is made from vinyl, but when I decide to replace my top, I will go with canvas. Vinyl is what the vehicle came with. All that being said, I am in love with this car. I love starting the engine and hearing the roar, I love having the top down and the way she looks. When I first bought this car, I could not stop looking in my driveway. Although my car is 11 years old, some people think that my car is brand new. The color is white with a cream convertible top. I find that this car is very reliable. I always keep up with the oil changes, and knock on wood, she has never left me stranded. She is a gas hog, that is for sure, but she is fast. I am still in love with this car after three years, and I do not regret my decision at all.

My red mustang was AMAZING at 17! Now I'm 27, and it's time for a new vehicle...

I loved my car when I first got it! And I still do to a degree. Unfortunately, the material used for the seats is extremely poor quality. Even plain water leaves horrible stains. Overall, the seats aren't very comfortable. Also, over time I have encountered a lot of problems with the vehicle. Every time I turn my wheel now, my mustang makes a horrible loud grinding sound but no one can tell me what it is! Air bags are under a recall. But despite all of those problems, I will never forget how awesome it was to get a mustang as my first car. It's old now, but I will always have a soft spot in my fear for my first car!

Ford Mustang consumer review.

My car handles very well. I love taking it on winding curvy mountain roads, it handles smooth. I love the heated seats and convertible top. The only real issue with it is that it seems to go through turn signal bulbs every three months. It is annoying having to replace the them especially the back ones. To get to the bulb, you pretty much have to break these plastic screws. The trunk is also a bit small. I keep a lot of things in my trunk so I wish it were a little bigger for storage. Other than that it has been an amazing and reliable car.
