    Serisouly considering a v6, and i know the hate will ensue, but i understand that it is not fast. It does get better mpg than my current car.

    Any opinions on this car, im looking at the 5sp so that it will be at least somewhat fun to drive...how are the ford manual trans? I know the autos arent very good, but dont know about the manual

    thanks

    why?
    I currently have a cougar, and its been incredibly reliable the 5 yrs ive owned it. the auto trans went at 120k, and that is the sole thing that has gone wrong. Nothing else, its never let me down

    Cheap, horrible build quality, shitty interior, and it's the V6 model. Only reason to buy a Mustang is for the V8.

    Just going strictly bolt-ons will make it a relatively fun daily driver.

    If you're buying used, go Cobra or go home.

    If you're worried about mpg, buy a Prius or Corolla. Why would you buy a Mustang if you're not interested in speed or power?

    If you want both mpg and speed, buy a sportbike.
