Me personally, I can appreciate the stang for a nicely engineered car and see that they did their homework with it, but because I've had nothing but problems with past Fords, it just leaves a sour taste in my mouth so that I can't possibly ever justify dropping a bucket load of money on buying one.

I agree. Stangs are good cars for their price and everything. But I seems like their always broke/ really expensive to fix. Not sayin ours are ANY better. But at least we can fit 5/6 people in our cars COMFORTABLY (that word looks wrong) and at least every girl in the world doesn't have an imp. I would take my car over a GT any day. Buttt, the stangs can sound sooooo sexy. Which I love bout them.

I agree with you, My first car was a 99 Stang GT. I wouldn't say I miss it but I did enjoy it, haha. Room wise? You can only fit 3 MAX if you're a big guy like me. I got my Impala and I wouldn't trade it for a Stang.

Anyone From The NYC Area? Lets Meet Up.

My sister had a 2005 mustang and when we all tried to pile into it. It was HORRIBLE. lol. But as I've said, they are really good cars. I think its more of a personal preference though.

^^ That's exactly what it boils down to, and a lot has to do what you grew up with. If you've never had any Ford problems, you probably like them. I've had a lot, so my opinion isn't worth anything because it will always be biased against Ford.

I can't say much, I grew up on a farm so we had all kinds. Fords, dodges, chevys and John deeres. Lol. But I was always more of a Chevy fan. Never had anything but problems with dodge, ford not so bad but still worse than any Chevy we had.

Depends on your definition of old. Lol. Like we said though, the impala is an old person car.

yeah, I got rid of mine to get into a young persons type car.....

I was also at the ford dealer today, test driving a 2013 s h o, they had every type of mustang under the sun..... not a single 1 visually excited me. I will say, the prices are very competitive for the amount of HP and performance that you get.

I liked it, same powerplant as my MKS Ecoboost. For some reason I have this vision in my head of an all black s h o, with black perma- chrome rims, dark tint, and white calipers. I dont think I am really going to do it , they are a lot of money new. Maybe used in 18 months. Another reason I actually drove it was because I got a coupon in the mail, as a Lincoln owner, a loyalty program, where if I test drove any 2013 model, I got a gift certificate for Maui Jim sunglasses of my choosing up to $269.00.
