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.
