Mustang vs. Children

So, the Mrs. is 4 months pregnant and reality is starting to set in. I've been window shopping 4-Door vehicles and it's making me sick to my stomach. My last 3 cars have all been mustangs. It's been well over 10yrs since I rolled in anything that's not a Mustang. So, you can imagine my hesitation/unwillingness to easily part ways.

Now everything I'm willing to tolerate as my daily driver is more than I would like to spend a month and I'm not willing to emasculate my daily driving experience to the point of depression. Yes, somewhat selfish. But I'm serious and at the end of the day a happy home is the most important. Plus the Mrs. is a banker and spending more on a car switch that I've been in a little over a year is ridiculous spending to her.

So here is the real question for the Mustang owning parents. At what age is it not practical to have your child in the back seat in a car seat. I understand it can be cramped getting in and out, but that's something I can deal with. I'm a firefighter on 24 shifts, so having to get my kid in and out on a daily basis will never be an issue. So when people talk about how unpractical it is, does that have to do with it being the main family car, or just being annoyed by the lack of backseat space as the child gets older. We are a two vehicle family with the Mrs. in a 2012 Camry

Preach to me!!!!!!

I have a 5 year old that fits in my 98 just fine with a booster seat. Pass seat is pulled up some but its not crazy. I would say a kid can sit in the back of even a SN95 style car for awhile. S197s have more room.

Why not just use the Camry when you need to take the kids places? My mom and dad did this before I could drive. He had/has an 02 GT and my mom had/has an 03 Explorer. It worked out just fine. They had two kids including me. Whenever my dad needed to take both my sister and I somewhere, he took the Explorer. If my mom needed to drive somewhere she drove the Mustang.

I think a kid would be perfectly fine in the back till he's about 12, then he/she might start complaining. I'd say the biggest headache is going to be the car seat stages, crawling back there to set it up and putting the kiddo in every time could get old quickly.

No kids

Greetings,

Congratulations on your new addition!

There are some fantastic 4 door cars. Mustangs they are not, but fun to drive definitely.

Give a Mazdaspeed 3 a try. For a little hatch it is a beast. I sold mine to get into the 5.0 and I miss her quite a bit. Speed 6 is fun too and quite rare.

There are larger performance sedans too: Chevy SS, Pontiac G8, Taurus SHO, etc.

Or you could go the ultimate opposite direction and opt for a VW TDI wagon and join the hypermiler brigade.

Good luck,

G

I'm not sure this is an answer you'll be looking for, but my 2011 Mustang purchase was made from it's previous owner having to trade it in after only 2K miles he put on it. I contacted him after purchasing it from that local Ford dealership, as he told the sales staff he wanted to make sure the Mustang "was in good hands". He told me he had to sell it, as the wife was completely upset with having to crawl into the back seat area to fasten/unfasten the child into the child seat. So after only a few months of ownership, he went back to the dealer and traded it in on a Ford Explorer.

I've stayed in touch with him, meeting him, his wife, and daughter at a local Hooters when they host a Saturday car show. She's happy with the Explorer, and while he likes it too, he misses the Mustang.

So the problem is? You have two cars it doesn't make sense if both are the same. My two are a Tacoma and a Stang

I will say I had the New Fusion for a week the 4cyl ecoboost and really liked it, but it's a "normal" car

I have three kids 14,10, and 9. When we do family events we take my wifes flex. I use the mustang for a dd and to get my kids to and from all the diffrrent sporting practices there in. I freaked out when my wife first got pregnant and sold my 93lx 5.0 coupe and bought a suburban. my wife had a great car that was four door it's that I let fear and tunnel vision get to me. The stang will work out fine as long as you have one family vehicle.

You have a Camry. Isn't that enough? If you have to take the kids somewhere use that.

Lol. I have 2 kids, a 4yr old and a 3yr old!.. When ever we go somewhere now, we flip a coin to see what car we take!.. Moms '06 GT, or dads modded '04 GT!.. Lol. People who say Mustangs are not practical, just don't know what's what!..

You don't need to go with the coupe. Could always go with the
sedan.

I think one of the worst things going on in today's society is the bow down to the norm. The traditional path is old and played. The truth is any family is fine with two cars and one being a Mustang. Like others have said switch with her if it is ever a problem and you need the bigger car to take kids around.

When we lose ourselves to being parents it kills everything. I think it makes you a worse parent and a worse spouse. You are three things: yourself, a husband and a father (soon). Make no mistake about it for you and those around you to be happy you need to maintain all three aspects. Keep the car forever. By the time it is even a concern it will be paid for... then buy a DD if it is really a big deal.

Either way be true to yourself without taking from the others in your family and you will be fine. And when that kid comes love it and have a blast... but stay a husband too. Take the wife on dates in the stang at least once a month.

... Confucius says lol

Do you want to always tell your kid about the nice Mustang you had but had to get rid of it because of them? Believe me, you will, I used to hear other people doing that all the time. When that kid gets a few years older, they will think your car is the coolest thing if you still have it.

Good decision! You will thank yourself years from now. If I had a nickel for every time someone sees my '79 T/A and says "I used to have one of these" or tells me about a family member or friend that "used to have one". Don't be one of those "used to have" people.

Check out this clip from Love the Beast. He talks about cheating your children out of their father by losing your passion for life if you give up what you love for other people.

Eric Bana Jeremy Clarkson Jay Leno Dr. Phill on Cars - YouTube

I'll never give up my cars just for a second set of doors to get people in and out of. My dad got rid of the cars he loved that happened to be coupes when my sister and I were born and he's missed the cars ever since. I can tell he wishes he still had them and although he may say he doesn't regret it, I know he does.

Cute. My 2 year old rides in the back but it won't last long cause my girl is tall so the seat is as back as both passengers can ride comfortable. The majority of the time we take her Saturn.

Honestly, even when my 5'3 wife rides with us she has room. That booster is bulky too, honestly the way she is situated in that car I'm thinking of just ditching the booster because when she sits on just the seat the belt goes right where it is supposed to. I'd need to make sure she'd be safe like that though. Would give her a ton more legroom.
