This car is and has been reliable for many years, and me being as lead-footed as I am, is saying a lot. The only thing I have had to replace on my Mustang is the battery and tires, and that is after 6 years!! This car is great for someone who needs a reliable form of transportation and is looking for a little fun while they are at it.

This is my 3rd Mustang. I still have the first two, I just can't let them go. The 2002 convertible is my Parade car, it gets so many compliments I just keep showing it. Reliability is fantastic, although there are two routine maintenance items. Oil changes every 3k and rear tires. I know a little less throttle would reduce this item. My 2000 mustang (daily driver) has over 165,000 and it feels like it is running as strong as it was when I got it 8 years ago. It loves the interstate on and off ramps, just eats them up. I have had great performance out of mine, and I recommend them to you. I recommend the leather interior, because it is so easy to maintain.

A few issues

by from Iowa City on June 5, 2012

Bought this when 8 years old. Sensor for EGR was replaced. AT indicator (red marker on shifter) sticks, but trans is reliable. Seat belts don't recoil. Otherwise this is a fun car.

Great Weekend Car!

My wife let me purchase my 2002 Premium GT as a weekend toy in 2005, with 24,000 miles on the clock. Although it only sees about 2,000 miles a year, it is a blast to drive! We usually pick the Mustang to drive to local wineries around Indiana, and always find ourselves (or atleast I find myself) searching out the nearest two-lane roads to get us there. Anyone looking for a tight, noise free car should look further. It is not a pure sports car, but more a great Grand Tourer. I don't think I will ever sell it!

This has been an excellent car for the money and very reliable too.I think the 4.6 liters were pretty much perfected by 02.I've had my gt for about 5 yrs now and bought the car with 50,000 miles.The engine burns no oil and I have driven the car very agressively for 5yrs.This model has amazing torque for everyday driving and more than enough horsepower when you need it.20 mpg in town and 26mpg on the hwy going75mph.The reliability of this car is very good especially for a domestic.Comfort is good enough for every day use.

The 4.6 liter 260hp and 302lb-ft of torque is great for the 2002 mustang gt. the 0-60 times on a 4speed automatic is a 5.8 and quarter mile on Falken ziek 512 245/45/17 stock times is 14.5 seconds It it a great performing car all around. Cornoring and Accleration is excellient but brakes could be a little nicer when wet. but buying a 10 dollor stainless lines quickly make this performance a dream excellient car in and out and has tons of potintel.
