Is a 2012 mustang gt good for a beginners first car?
Getting it for your first car would be sweet but honestly it's not a very smart idea if you're a teenager....ask any insurance company, your parents will need a second mortgage to pay them for the 6 months or less you have it in one piece.
You're first car should be a reliable beater because it will be cheap to insure but most importantly CHEAP TO FIX, it. Cause odds are you will hit something at some point while learning to drive (we all have). Not to mention it's also better if it doesn't have a ton of HP....maybe enough to join the freeway, but giving a kid any more is just asking for them to get an attitude/ego and of course get into trouble and the sad truth is you can thank tons of kids like that for making insurance on mustangs so expensive.
So in the long run, it's better if you have a less powerful car to start off.....if you have you're beater for a few years, learn what you're doing and don't get into too much trouble,Once insurance rates go down for you, THEN you can get a mustang or something w/ some power, cause hopefully by then you will be able to not only appreciate a car like that, but more importantly you will know how to handle a car like that a lot better than some kid who gets it straight out of the gate.
I know it may sorta suck but the idea of getting a beater for your first car is so when you do get a nice/faster car you can not only more easily afford it.But you can also keep it in one piece
(which is what you want to do w/ a nice car right?)
Cause as I said you can ask any insurance company if it's a good idea and they will tell you how often
1 teenager + teenage ego + powerful car - actual experience = one less mustang/kid.
....and I seriously doubt your parents want that to be you
