The Mustang is a great deal, reliable, full of
character, fun to drive, and even sensible.
Civic, Celica and so on don't compare as a whole
package. The 99+ V6 is a bargain in every respect.
Trunk space is good compared to most small cars,
and fold through rear seats are really convenient.
Kids enjoy the rear seat. They don't need an SUV!
Adults can fit uncomfortably in the back, but who
cares about them? This car is about you, the driver.
The manual makes the car alive and gears are
flexible through hills. Highway mileage is great for
a car like this (27 or
so) but city drops pretty quickly to around 20. For
what this car costs, buy one and some snow tires!
Performs better than 95% of the cars on the road,
Costs as much as the same year econobox from
Honda etc, Driver and front passenger comfort is
tops, Great looks, great reliability.
The cupholder sucks...... the seatbelts are a little
annoying if they fall out of the clips on the seat.
The CD/Tape radio is great, but having the cd
player behind the gear shifter is awkward It should
have a MP3/cd unit on top and use the space below
as a tray for an Ipod or cell phone
