V6 Mustang or v6 Eclipse?

I'm 17, almost 18 years old and I'm looking for a new car. I can't decide between a mustang ( '05-'09 ) body style, or an eclipse, with the newest body style. It can't be a V8 mustang, because I don't pull enough money in to pay for insurance. The v6 mustang, has 210hp, while the eclipse has 265hp. I currently own a 2000 eclipse, and I love it, but I can't decide between these two. The eclipse comes with a 10 in. Rockford fosgate sub and stereo, and nice seats, but with the mustang, it has so many options to be customized. I also, don't have any experience with rwd. Only front wheel drive, as that's my 2000 eclipse now, and the newer body style also. Which car should I go for..?

I realize. I'm also looking for people that can give me problems that mustangs are notorious for having. The good and bad about mustangs. If people looks at the specs of each car, they can tell me what they would recommend.

I'd need to know a bit more before I gave you an answer. Cost, milage, auto/manual? Are you going to be moding if you get one?

Not looking at any specific mustangs or eclipse's. But either one would be automatic, and yes, I would be putting mods on either car, both under the hood, and outside appearance.

Mustang all the way...this seriously is my unbiased choice. You'll get a lot more respect and admiration for a mustang than an eclipse any day of the week. And also the aftermarket is much much much larger for the mustang than the eclipse. And you can't beat the look of an s197 mustang compared to an eclipse honestly.

Is rwd a lot different from front wheel drive as far as rain and snow? I'm honestly afraid I'm going to wreck it in the rain because of my dad telling me how fwd is safer because the weight of the engine is on the driving tires. Is it THAT much of a difference in rwd?

It is but you are not going to crash in rain. That is silly. You will have to be more cautious in snow though

Have you called your insurance agent, to see what the difference in insuring either one? Your on a limited budget, get the cheaper car and years down the road, you can get a new Mustang.

I've also done some research, is it true that '07 mustangs don't have a rear sway bar, ABS, or Traction control?

I'll definitely have to check on that, that's a good idea.

Who is telling you this? Abs is pretty standard on cars my 05 premium has tcs and not sure about the sway bar. It isn't really needed for the v6 in stock form so I don't think it has one

I thought the same thing. " why wouldn't a fairly recent car NOT have ABS or TC? " but as soon as I google it, there have been many sites that suggested it didn't come with it. Click image for larger version

I will say that my base 07 v6 didn't have a tcs button. But alas a mustang will be no problem in rain without tcs anyways as I have driven in many rain storms with bald tires

I know that I will be careful, I've just had both my 2 accidents in the rain in my fwd eclipse, and that's what makes me skeptical. I'm thinking, " if it's this easy to hydroplane in a fwd, imagine a rwd car! " I'm also 17 & not the brightest kid, and love to show off when it comes to cars ( which I have a feeling a lot of mustang owners love to do, because cmon... It's a mustang )

Hydroplanning isn't really a big deal to be honest just let off gas until you make contact with pavement. A Toyota coralla will hydroplane if it's tires aren't adequate.

But if you have had two,accidents And like to show off as you say why not buy a safe commuter car?

I mean, I know I could probably handle either car, mine or a mustang, if I just take it slow. I've always loved mustangs, so I'd figure putting sandbags in the back would maybe weigh the back down. I'm just probably overthinking a lot of this, but just taking caution.

It does not really matter weather FWD or RWD

Hydroplaning is not caused by much of anything except what tires are on the car weather it is front wheel drive or rear wheel drive.
Whatever you get you need to put on some good tires.

To answer your question.
If you want a car to just drive around and have transportation the Eclipse is just fine.
If your looking for a car to love and enjoy a lot more it is the Mustang you would be happier with. A Mustang is a Mustang, Anything else is just transportation.

If I had to choose between an 05-09 v6 mustang or a 4th Gen eclipse with the 3.8 mivec, I would choose the Eclipse every time. It's a nicer car with a much, much better engine.

For those fwd haters, an 05-09 v6 mustang is so pathetic that there are generally new threads popping up asking how to do a burnout or a donut because these cars can't break traction. The eclipse might be wrong wheel drive but it can at least smoke the tires through the first two gears and should also trap around 100 mph in the 1320. That's as good or better than a 2v 4.6 will usually manage.

My advice would be to drive both and then make a decision. That mustang will in all likelihood be slower than your already slow 3rd gen with the added bonus of having most likely a worse interior.

The 4th gen eclipse doesn't get the respect it deserves since the Evo ... eclipsed it. Imo, it's likely the better car of the two.

I'll throw out that Ford's will be easy to get parts for...the Mitsubishi sales in the US have pretty much stopped (something to consider)

If being honest is trolling then sure, I am one...

As far as praising the mustang ... why? It's the boat anchor v6. We're it the gt or 3.7 then then no, I wouldn't recommend the eclipse.


Edit -

Strange mud does have a point. Mitsubishi may be pulling out from the US market as their sales have tanked. I don't think parts will be a problem but lack of dealerships and distribution is certainly something to consider.

It could be the damn 5.8 trinity and you'd still find a way to bash the mustang. I know the 4.0 sucks but literally man you've never posted a positive thing about the mustang on here that I've seen yet

This is true, that V6 in the 05-10 mustang is terrible. I drove a friends 06 V6 convertible, yikes. Ford really, really screwed over people during that gen. (Granted I was use to my Coyote, but c'mon.)

I haven't driven an eclipse, so I can't comment on those.

Save up and get anything BUT a 4.0 haha...

I can confirm the base model 4.0's did NOT get a rear sway bar (Pony Package did come with one though).

No you can't really compare a 4.0 to a gt or to a 5.0 but the 4.0 is by no means a boat. With the right mods it will run in the mid 14s not to shabby for a boat of a 4.0..Compare that with the time of some of the muscle cars of the 60-70-80s as you'll see lot of them run in the 14s also .............. 09 v6 bbk cai,bama tuned ,s/d coil taylor thunder volt 8.2 wires .strut tower brace .koni str struts kyb shocks,gt front and rear sways bars.

I'd go mustang. Not only because I'm mustang fan, but because I think you would have more choices in mods. But either way you'll have a fun car.

Go back and read what he is asking ----------

He did say>
Quote:
I'm 17, almost 18 years old and I'm looking for a new car. I can't decide between a mustang ( '05-'09 ) body style, or an eclipse, with the newest body style. It can't be a V8 mustang, because I don't pull enough money in to pay for insurance.
Apparently he is on a tight budget. He needs to get what he can afford to buy, He also is thinking of insurance and probably maintenance.

I'm thinking he will have way more fun owning a Mustang then a boring ,ugly Eclipse even if some of you think the Eclipse is faster. Who cares about that when your on a tight budget and are young enough to enjoy your car. Not everybody races or does a burnout at every stoplight. He can drive the V6 older Mustang until he gets to making more $$$$ and trade up someday. It will still be worth more then the Eclipse in two or three years unless he screws it up.

He can mod the Mustang to look like he wants it to look and as far as being fast, It will be fast enough and good looking enough to go pick up a girl without being laughed at by driving an old ladies car.

You can never ever go wrong having a Mustang.
Of course I'm a Mustang fan and love them all. 4 Cyl. -V6, V8, A straight 6, Manual or automatic it does not matter as long as it's a Mustang. Coupe or Vert.

Being an American Icon for fifty years must account for something.

I think both cars are fine for him. The V6 less power is the way to go after all he did say two accidents. Get good tires and be safe what ever you decide to do.

That's kind of apples to oranges to what the op is looking at as he is considering a pre 2011 mustang v6 and a fourth generation eclipse not a third generation.

In all reality if you put bias aside the eclipse he is looking at is faster and gets better mpg then the mustang he is considering. Now if he wants a mustang then by all means get one. But going off performance for me it would be no contest.
