Love or regret the stang?

M trying to sell or trade my lifted truck for a 03/04 Mach 1 and it seems that everyone

---------- Post added at 01:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:26 PM ----------

Is telling me that I'm going to regret giving up my truck for a stang.....an I only see it as a win win. Better gas mileage( if used properly lol.... Won't be at first of course ha) but also I never use the bed of the truck, also I've never towed anything with it since I've had it. It is also a crew cab but NO ONE is ever in my truck except for me and my girlfriend.

Are you guys happy with your mustang being your daily drivers?(those of you who bought your stang as a dd)

I would like to keep my truck since its paid off, but in order to buy the mustang, the truck must go. And besides I think I wouldn't want to drive my truck after I had my mustang haha

Re: Love or regret the stang?

I've never had a truck, I've always been a car guy. If you don't tow, offroad, or use the bed for anything, you probably won't miss it. Otherwise, I'd second guess it.

As for me, had it almost two weeks, 1100 miles, had 7 when I drove it off the lot. That should say a lot.

Sounds familiar. Mine's at almost 800, had 15 off the lot (a good 1/3 of that my wife and I put on it). It's getting a whole bunch more this coming weekend.

Honestly OP i love it so f@&*ing much. Ive had mine for 10 months as a DD and have way too much fun driving it. From the endless daily looks from people to the "oh sht" from the fart cans at red lights when i embarrass them in front of their girlfriends. The drive is just plain fun, it handles like a glove, looks damn good and hauls ***. What more can you want!? Hope this gives you an idea from this first time stang and former truck owner.

I traded a 2009 Tacoma for my Mustang and don't regret it for a minute. My husband called it my grocery getter anyway so now I bring my groceries home faster and cooler. Replace one getter for another

I regret it because how much my wife hates it. She's made my life miserable since I brought it home "its too loud" "there's not enough room" "it's the most uncomfortable car ever made" "the windows are too high, the seats are too low"

I told her before we got together that I wanted a mustang and when it worked out that I could get one I did.

I'm regretting buying it because it's made my life so stressful sometimes I don't even want to look at the car..

That's to bad when I first told my hubby I wanted to trade the Taco for a stang he was not as receptive as I had hoped but he was so happy I was not going back into a classic VW he just kept quiet. LOL my little 71 super vert almost killed him LOL

---------- Post added at 03:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:53 PM ----------

Kinda felt bad too because he liked the Taco but he LOVES the Mustang. So alls good in Georgia

I don't know about the last '05-09 iteration, but this one is none of those things. It's more comfortable than my '10 Malibu I traded it, the windows are just right... the car isn't that tall, how can they be tall? Seat height is comparable to my Malibu. It doesn't swallow you like a sports car or F-body Camaro. The rear does lack room, the front is perfectly fine. She sounds rather unreasonable.

Yea I think it's way more comfortable. I think it's more comfortable than my dads Volvo ! She just hates mustangs. And she says the back seats are not even usable but my 6 ft 3" brother rode in the back for 30 minutes and said it ease t that bad.

I've never ridden in the back lol. Never will not in my mustang!

Re: Love or regret the stang?

My sister rode in the back one day. It's a pain getting back there but she said the rear seats are actually some of the most comfortable she's sat in.

I do kinda regret getting rid of my truck. I never really needed to use a truck till I got my mustang. Wife doesn't care but she gets aggravated when I tell her I should have kept the truck and mustangs are money Pitts so that doesn't help either. I love my mustang but sometimes I do just wanna drive a normal vehicle and not worry about putting money into something cause in the end it just is t good enough,fast enough,etc
