2007 Ford Mustang for firrst car??

Ok my dad knows this dude that owns a car lot and the dude that owns it goes to ford sales and he said he could get me one for about $10,000
My dad said that would be a good car for me, wut do you all think??

What about gas, maintenence, reliablity, power, ride comfort???

Would i enjoy this car?? we test drove one and we really liked it and thought it rode a little rough, maybe it was just that car, or the tires it had one it

Oh there is SOO much wrong information here from these other uninformed, biased people! Ok, here we go.
-Mustangs are just as reliable as any other car if you properly maintain them.
-Mustangs are not huge gas hogs, considering the performance you get in return. If you want 35 miles per gallon, buy a Focus. If you are redlining the car constantly from stoplight to stoplight, yes you will go through a lot of gas.
-Getting into a Mustang will NOT automatically jack up your insurance rates. When I was 21, I went from an Escort (4 cylinder) to a Mustang GT (V8) and my rates went DOWN. Why, you ask? Because I had a clean record. Your record matters way more than the car.
-If the one you drove felt rough, it may have been a GT, which has a little bit stiffer springs, or the tires were hard. Mine doesn't ride rough at all.
-Don't worry about long term reliability. My 1998 is past 135,000 miles and has never leaked, blown an engine or transmission, or anything like that. I got 30 miles per gallon once on a long highway trip. With mixed city and highway driving, I get 24 mpg all the time. Not exactly a gas hog.

personally would not buy the car. It seems like a good car, but overall the qualities of negativity are greater than positive.
Mustangs in general take a lot of gas. Not as much as hummers, but they do take quite a bit.
Maintenance would primarily concern the seats. If they're leather, you'd have to get seat covers or take great care of them and clean them regularly no matter what. And with the horse power of the car, you'd also have to take care of the tires.
The reliability is just like any other car; will get you from A to B.
It has great power but once again it boils down to gas. More power means more gas.
The ride comfort is pretty decent. Not a super spacious vehicle, but still comfortable.
Overall, for me it would be a no. there are many more cars out there that would fit your needs. Many cars can get you from A to B without wasting gas and still being comfortable.
It is up to you, though. Good luck.

Make sure it's not a GT a 300 horsepower V8 is way too powerful for a first car. The regular Mustang has 210 horsepower and that should be more than enough for any teenager.

with the gas prices, it's gonna be really hard to maintain a mustang, unless it's like 4 cylinders or 2 which i don't think there is.

It's pretty much perfect. May not be the safest thing, but certainly the performance and reliability will be fine. They get about 20-25 mpg.

if you want to pay 3k a year or more on insurance go ahead... sports cars don't have cheap insurance... especially for first time drivers...

You should not have that as your first car. It is too expensive.

If it is your first car, your insurance will be through the roof. But other than that, why not get it?
