2004 GT DD

I'm thinking about getting an 04 GT 5spd to use as my daily driver, I'm just wondering how reliable these cars really are and do you really get upper 20's for fuel mileage if you are nice to them? Any info is much appreciated

That's pretty impressive, how many miles are on your car? Do you have many problems with it?

Yea its at a dealer, I would think this time of year in Wisconsin I could get a pretty good deal, we are getting 6-8 inches of snow tomorrow. It's about an hour from me so I'll go up there Saturday to look at it. Thank you very much for all the info

I'm not sure what's been done to it, I can see that it has magnaflow exhaust, well at least the tips. Other than that I'm not sure

Re: 2004 GT DD

The 2v GT's are great cars and can get decent mpgs if driven "lightly" lol.
Reliability wise I haven't heard about too many major issues with them. The plastic upper intake has been known to crack but that's about it. Again it really depends on the history of the car...how has it been treated for the past 70k miles, how many mods were done etc....

Though I noticed you are in Wisconsin also...a dd 5spd v8 can get interesting in the snow/ice. I think we are just about done with the nasty stuff so picking one up now wouldn't be bad, but driving during a typcial WI winter could be a pita.

Where in WI are you located...north, south?

Yea slippery roads and a rwd v8 don't exactly mix, I have a car that I'm driving now and would continue to drive to work and when the roads are slippery. I'm in south eastern wi, about 25 minutes south of Milwaukee. I also have a very nice fox, I just sold my truck and I'm looking for a car that gets decent fuel mileage and is still fun to drive, I just happened to hear that these cars are reliable and get good fuel mileage

Also wondering how the 96-97 GT's are? Reliability and fuel mileage, my girlfriends mom works at a dealer that has two of them so I can get them at a good price, just need to know if they are as good as the 99+ they both have around 75k miles on them

Re: 2004 GT DD

Oh cool...I used to live in Milwaukee for a couple years, went to Marquette

Well if you have a vehicle for the nasty weather than I'd be all for a GT for dd in the nice weather. My buddy gets 22-25 easily with his 01 5spd on the highway.

The 96-98 4.6L 2v's were non PI engines..they don't have the refined intakes, cams, and exhaust manifolds that the 99-04 2v's have.

So the overall hp/tq output is significantly different than the 99-04.

96-98 2v: 215-225hp/285-290tq
vs

99-04 2v: 260 hp/300tq

So if you can pick up a 99-04 GT with fair miles in decent shape for a good price I'd say jump on it.
