Does my piece-o-***** 1999 Ford Mustang V-6 qualify for "Cash for Clunkers" program?

Official Kelly Blue Book says that it is rated at 20 city MPG and 27 hwy MPG (which is complete bool****, I've never gotten more than 20 MPG even on an open highway)

Statistics:

Bought new in 1999
300 miles complete rack n' pinion failure
1200 miles weather stripping popped out and damaged car roof
11,000 both door handles break
37,000 miles fuel pump failure
42,000 miles transmission replaced
54,000 miles driver door handle broke
88,000 miles window motor failure
96,000 fuel pump failure

*minor repairs too numerous to state
** Always repaited with "genuine" Ford parts

I figure Ford should give me some sort of a rebate for selling me junk.

your car doesn't qualify, it would have to get 18 or worse...but it's to late anyway, they already ran out of money..

My soninlaw has a 07 with the v6 and he's getting 25 mpg around town and 30 on trips.. and it's as fast as the old 5.0's and early 4.6's...

For a second there, sterling, I thought you were grating on about your ex-girlfriend....



Anyway, I'm a Chevy Girl, so pretty much anything that I say is going to be derogatory toward Ford products. Why the eff didn't you buy Chevy?!!!

No. I don't believe all those problems were Ford's fault. I suspect that if you look in the mirror you will see the problem, but I don't expect you to ever admit it...

Idk, but you should have done some research before buying your car. The v6 mustangs have a bad reliability record. The v8's on the other hand, blow 99% of cars on the road out of the water and according to JD power and consumer reports have an excellent reliability and repair record. Also, if you are being honest and you have never gotten more then 20mpg on highway driving, you either need to let a mechanic know so your car can be tested or you have to go to a driving class. If you go to car and driver and look at there back issues, I believe its either April of 1999 or May of 1999 they did an article on a 1998 v6 mustang and got an average mpg of 23.8. They got 26.7 on the highway and 20.8 in the city. So unless your cars broken, its because of the way you drive that you are not getting the listed MPG.
