Good for a single person or younger driver but not a good family car.

I have a five speed manual transmission Ford Mustang. It is a reliable car if you keep up with your scheduled maintenance suggested in the owner's manual. The disadvantages for me (a single mom whom does car pool, etc.. ) Is the fact that there are only four seat belts so if you have more people than that you have to drive a larger vehicle (which requires you getting less mpg) or take two cars to maintain seating legally. I also find the car feels very small in the back seat so if you have legs larger than that of a small child, you cannot sit without your legs in the seat ahead of you and your head may very well touch the roof. This car has a pretty good accelerating rate for an older model vehicle and gets fair gas mileage as well.

It gets very good gas mileage. Most mustangs do. The newer models. After 2000.

I love that when my car messes up, it is easy to have it fixed. Mustangs are really easy cars to fix, most people say. I have a convertible and love the way it is designed. I have had it for 5 years and only small things have needs to be fixed. It is very comfortable and a reliable car. The ac is not amazing and the tires need to be rotated though. And I have had a problem with the gas cap causing the check engine light to come on and it is apparently the most common. But that is about it!

When buying this car make sure to keep in mind that its a 2 door.

My vehicle is a 2003 mustang 3. 8 liter v6 with a clean new paint job, cobra rims, and a custom built exhaust. The car in general is a well get around car, reliable if taken care of properly, good on gas on freeways, steering is ok and the power is definitely there. I can do doughnuts and burnouts in it so that's cool. Strongly recommended for a student in high school or college. Car insurance is very affordable as well.
