Which car should I buy? A 2002 Camaro, or a 2004 Mustang?

I'm having trouble deciding which one to buy. On one hand, the Camaro is $2000 cheaper than the Mustang. But the Mustang looks a bit nicer, and is newer with fewer miles. Here is a link to both the Mustang and Camaro:

I would get the Mustang, Maybe put some nice sporty rims on it in the Future and it will look a lot sportier and cooler
or get the Camaro now and with the extra $2000 you'll save put some nice sporty chrome rims on it and possibly still save some money to do other little things to it
Personally I would get the Mustang

You should reevaluate your options. Since you are already looking at the "Pony Car" category I would say you should look into a nice looking 84 Camaro or an older Mustang II these cars are much cheaper and are safer due to the massive amounts of steal used to make their very large bodies. Also you can find that many Camaros have a four or six cylinder engine which is much more cost efficient then the large V8 you are dreaming of. Good luck in your search!

Scrap American cars and buy a European car or Australian car. They're much better.

The Vauxall Monaro or VXR8 are very good alternatives, along with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z4.

They do handling much better but mught be slower in a straight line.

Look at

www.topgear.com/uk

for more information from an excellent, independant motor magazine.

keep shopping if you can.

Personally i think mustangs are far to common.
Camaros are too but mustangs far more.
Do you really just wanna be another car in the crowd?
you could do a lot more with a GM vehicle

If I were buying, I wouldn't waste my money on a V6 Mustang. V8 are definitely the way to go. But you may not care about that kind of stuff. So I'd say go with the Mustang because it has under 100,000 miles.

I wouldn't buy either. Both cars are too much money for the mileage they have on them. Plus, they are both 6 cylinder engines. If you must choose between the two....I would buy an older corvette. What the hell.

The two thousand you spend will be recovered, in the long run, in repairs that the lower miles Mustang won't need. If you like the car more, buy it.

Remember, whatever miles you drive the car, they will be added to the current miles at resale time. That is, at 15,000 miles per year, four years from now, the Camaro will have 190K, the Mustang will have 160K. How much difference in value will these cars have then? Five hundred? A thousand?

Get the Mustang.

BUT, don't buy either without a title history in hand and an inspection from a good mechanic.

Buy what you like the most, but be careful. Look before you leap.

BTW, if the Camaro had the same miles as the Mustang, I would still pick the Mustang. The visibility is way better, and Ford reliability is marginally better.
