Mustang Has Been My Daily Driver for 10 Years
2006 Ford Mustang
My Mustang GT is a 2006 model with the 4.6L V8 and 5 speed transmission, so it has a little age on it. However, I bought the car used with 14,000 miles on it in 2008, and now in 2018, has almost 80,000 miles as my daily driver (Mostly commuting in the city with occasional long distance trips). The only mechanical issues I've had besides regular maintenance is the ball joint in both driver and passenger side front wheels had worn out around 65,000 miles, and was about $1,000 to replace. As far as comfort.... it's a sports car. No one is buying a 2006 mustang nowadays because it rides like a Lincoln. They're buying it to have a fun car to drive around. It may not be great in gas (15 mpg in stop and go, 24 highway nowadays), but it's been a great daily driver for me for the past 10 years.
