Definitely keep the stang. You will miss it everyday you don't have it and hate yourself every time you step into whatever excuse of a car your replaced it with. I have been on multiple road trips in the back of an s197 with no problems. And I'm talking 7-8 hour rides. Why take the fun out of something that you do everyday?

I have two kids, one is 3 and one is 5 months. We picked up a Taurus x Awd for my wife b4 our first was born. It's a great car but lacks in the area of leg room with car seats. So when my wife was pregnant the second time we bought me a 03 excursion 7.3l powerstroke. Now this this is a family vehicle! Tons of space for everyone including out two English mastiffs. Like Jon al said, you will miss it everyday. So I would try to make it work and buy a family friendly vehicle. My mustang is about my only get away when I need time for myself.

Yeah a lot of ppl do this or find a good used G8 or even a Charger. There is also the SHO Taurus which is a BIG full size twin turbo awd monster of a sedan.

The main reason we bought a 2013 Mustang is because my wife wanted a car that would fit our family of 3. So instead of the 2013 427 convertible Vette, we bought the Mustang. My nephews are 14 & 16. They both fit in the back of the Mustang.

Keep your Mustang & don't worry about your child. It'll be the car that you give them when they're old enough to drive. And that will make you the coolest dad in the world!

My kid is getting a nice car to drive to HS as long as she's a good kid and is respectful of the things she is given. That's another 10-11 years away but still. Not nice as in a BMW or a Mercedes unless she wants to find a cheaper E36 or E46 328i or something and fix it up for a few years before she gets her license. I'm talking like just a nice car not along the lines of the 1987 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight I had in HS in the late 90s lol. I'd love her to get into a sports car but also don't think ANYONE'S first car should be fast. I got my 91GT at 19 yrs old with mods and I almost killed myself more than a few times because I was a dip**** and a half even after a few years of driving experience.

My parents made me get a truck.. So glad they did. If I had a mustang that thing would have been torn to **** lol. Trucks are much harder to hurt. Was a good decision on my parents part.

So the wife isn't allowed a fun car? Lol. I drive a Focus everyday so my wife can drive her GT. I'd much rather her drive something nice than me. I get my fix bringing the playtoys out. We will be adding an suv to the fleet in the next year and it's her choice what to drive.

although the trucks MAY take a hit better than a car they do tend to harm passengers more. If you look at crash studies occupants don't tend to do well in trucks. If you are talking about going in the woods/fields the 1st time my kid gets stuck off road in his car is the day he learns how to call a wrecker and how much it costs.

Eh, yeah trucks... I had a small truck too, a Bronco II but that was more of a lifted car haha. I would love to get my kid into something like a 4.2L swapped 01-04 Mustang V6 for a first "nice" car that I did all the bolt ons and costmetics to with her over the course of her 15th and 16th years but I have a feeling finding a nice New Edge in 10 years is going to be a trick and a half, especially a V6. I suppose a V8 with a set of 2.73s in it would be slow enough lol.

I had a v6 f150 sxt... Had plenty of fun in it but it could only go 95 lmao. Several times I fell in holes with my front end.. Would cracked my bumper in a stang and tore it up... Bumper did it's job in the truck and my friends pushed my front end out of the huge hole while I hit the gas and barely got her outta it.

Maybe different car seats fit better I take my son on rides all the time and his seat fits fine. We have an Eddie Bauer it's not crazy huge but it fits and the wife sits in passenger seat and I can see fine.

Is that a Britax? Looks just like the one I used for my kid up until she needed a booster. Best reviewed carseat we could find and it was built like a tank.

And like I said in a previous post and got called an idiot or whatever, THAT sort of seat is not going to fit into a Mustang, period. Unless you fold the seat forward and leave it forward or something. And if that is the case, the person doing it should be pulled over and arrested since that seatback is going to be shot directly onto the child's head when the airbag goes off.

yes its Britax, and I agree with you 100% there is no SAFE way to put this kind of rear view seat in a SN stang!! this thing takes up the whole seat in my 4 door truck with the front seat moved up a couple notches, that's why I posted it to prove you right!!

Yes this seat is a tank! lol and 400$ one at that :/

Yeah those things aren't cheap... thankfully my mother bought our Britax and gave it to us at the baby shower. But comparing a Britax to a $50 Wal Mart special and you can see why they cost so much. I still have it in the attic which might be a good thing because the wife is freaking out because she's like 3 days late... Ruh roh.

I don't think there are any man, i'd love to see pics of what you put in there. I've seen someone load a matress on top of the car but never one with a baby seat
