May be time to say goodbye

Hello all. I've been pondering lately about possibly getting rid of my mustang πŸ˜”. I'm thinking about practicality purposes, resale value, and the overall fact that I don't want drive it everyday anymore. I don't have the money for another vehicle at the moment and am torn with what I should do... Any thoughts, concerns, or criticisms are welcomed. Click image for larger version

I made that mistake recently. Wanted a more practical car, better gas mileage, easier to keep looking nice (got so tired of the black car). Well, two months later I was back into a Mustang. Ended up costing me more because of the negative equity on trading in a brand new car that was two months old. Give it some serious thought before you do it, and take your time making your decision. Love my new Mustang though - even more than the 5.0 that I traded in.

I can only speak from my personal experience. Every time I've gotten rid of one of my Mustangs, I've regretted it.

I guess that could very well spell true for me I'd presume. I've been wanting to go back to a truck, but still want performance. Guess I'll have to save for a raptor lol.

Bruh! Kept the economy car and traded the mustang for a truck. I traded the wrong car. Never again will I choose gas mileage over speed, reliability, and looks. Im trading it into a dealer for a 2015 whenever they come out.

Awesome. You'll have to post pics of that '15 when you get it. Since 2012, I've been through six cars - on my fourth Mustang. I think I'm finally done.

I went from a mustang to an accord back to my current 13 mustang. Think about it real hard. But I understand your thought process. Good luck with whatever route you take. Your stang is a beauty btw.

You have a 3.7L, consider for a moment the fuel efficiency is almost on-par with a lot of Economy cars out there. Provided you keep your foot out of the gas.

As far as a Lightning, that would be completely opposite of what you said you wanted to do. Those things drink fuel like a fat kid on cake.

Plus in bad weather, since they aren't 4x4, that torque will have you sliding everywhere.

A 2014 V6 with stock gears, rims, and so on is still a Mustang.

My best tank to date was 28.8 mpg in Los Angeles traffic. The best I ever got out of a tiny econobox in my life was 31mpg (same traffic, real-world city/highway driving, with a manual as well). It's not a V8. So what. It still looks great, drives great, and gets econobox mpg. Manual and rear wheel drive just adds to the fun. All for 18-19K after incentives and rebates.

Go ahead. Get an econobox. It'll end in tears. It always does.

Maybe he works for Ford in management and gets two cars per year to lease. My dad got that for 30 years before he retired. We drove 4 Jaguar XJ6's from 1995-1999. Sure beats the discount for working at the Gap.

Multiple people here are ripping on the OP for wanting to trade in his mustang for fuel economy reasons. Read his post. Nowhere did he mention fuel economy as a reason. Heck, he's talking about maybe getting a Raptor.

Multiple people? Can you give us some names? Pretty sure most of us are just giving our experiences after getting rid of our mustangs. The only comment that i saw is the light green mustang dude saying "go ahead trade for an econobox." And if that hurts your feelings...lol

There's two, which is multiple in my books. As for hurting my feelings... lol indeed. Don't know what I said that would imply MY feelings were hurt, not like I contributed to this conversation at all. Was just trying to prevent the thread from derailing from the OP's question.

Speaking of which, OP, one of the things you mentioned is resale value. Considering brand new 2014s will be getting cleared out from lots to make room for the 2015s, I would say you better hang on to what you got. The other things you are talking about, like practicality and "that you don't want to drive it everyday anymore" are totally subjective. You need to give us a little more information about your situation to advise on that... what makes it impractical for your purposes? Kids? You need to haul stuff? And why don't you want to drive it every day anymore? As an unmarried 29 year old male, a Mustang couldn't fit my needs better than any other point of my life. But that answer is going to depend person-to-person.

I don't think anyone is ripping on OP but the OP is asking a question that has no right or wrong answer too. If the OP wants a truck then go get a truck and get rid of the stang. The OP indicated he doesn't have a desire to drive his stang. Okay, then get rid of the stang. What is people gonna say to make the OP feel excited about this stang again?

If dude wants a truck then go get a truck and sell the stang. Its thst easy. Sell the stang and go buy a truck.

What the hell is "practicality purpose"?


Resale value? Well the V6 mustang does not have a good resale value.


Don't want to drive it everyday anymore? Why?


You ain't got no money for another vehicle so..........Not a good position you are in.


Sell the mustang and buy a Yugo.

I do work for Ford, but in sales. Maybe I just have the "I wants", but don't have the means of getting them. I try to keep my car in "show" condition, which is difficult due to it being my daily. I'm trying to limit the usual "wear and tear" that a daily gets. Don't get me wrong, I love my car, I'm just at a crossroads of what I should do.

It is definitely difficult to always keep a car in show quality when its someone's daily driver and miles get racked up on daily basis. Its great to want things but its not always affordable to get them. If you lost the loving feeling for your stang, then so be it.

After almost 4 years of owning my stang and I still push a little chubby every time I look at it. I absolutely love driving it, feeling the acceleration and hearing the exhaust as the car takes off.

Clearly your a person who gets board very easy with cars and looses interest quicker than many people change underwear. Lmao. Nothing wrong with that if that's your thing and how you like to roll. 6 cars in two years. Thats a different car every 6 months. Ha ha ha ha

This is exactly what I want to do. Driving a mustang in NY winters isn't exactly fun.. I get stressed out even driving her in the rain lol. I want to buy a beater truck for bad weather/ daily driving to save racking miles on the mustang. It must be hard though to get up for work and look at the mustang then a pos truck and say "ill drive the truck today." lol

I'm with you guys. My Mustang is my only car and I live in Michigan. You can imagine how that goes in winter. I never thought of myself as a truck kind of guy, but for some odd reason recently I've had a thing for really old Ford pickups. I'm talking 1970s model F-series. Man those look good. This one, for example.

I've always loved my Mustangs and I want to constantly drive them, but I'm a bit more practical than that. So when I got to the point that I wanted to keep the mileage low on my Mustang and couldn't afford another car, I did what every smart-thinking, fast-driving, muscle-car-loving male would do.

I got married.

BAM. Instant second car!

I'm in the same boat as you... my mustang has not been very happy the past few winters here on LI... not to mention the roads when it rains aren't very good.... I remember about a month/month and a half back we got so much rain in a downpour I was scared to take the Mustang on the Southern state because I was scared I would drown it. I took a truck instead and at some dips and hills on the SS my mustang would have had water up to its head lights.... definitely will be purchasing a pick up in the next year or two and turbo/SC'ing the 'stang... a nice RAM1500 or F150 would be nice for NY winters

Yea bro last winter was a rough one here on the island.. not to mention the potholes we had to deal with after. I had a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee before I bought the mustang and it was awesome in the snow. Had I not wanted extra mod money so badly for the mustang, I would have kept it lol. I definitely regret selling it now.

That's what my wife wants to know

Well, in 2012 I traded my 05 Mustang v6 and my F-150 for a Honda Pilot for my wife (her first brand new vehicle ever - and she was 34) and I decided on something cheap and economical - a new Honda Civic. Well, that lasted for 800 miles, and then I traded the Civic for a 2010 v6 premium (grabber blue). Had that one for 5 months or so then decided that I wanted a GT. Got an 07 GT manual - black. Drove that for about 6 months and then decided that I wanted a 14 GT premium - also black. After driving that for a few months, I gave up trying to keep it looking nice. I was so sick and tired of spending a couple of hours on it only to have it looking like hell a few days later. Then, the $600 a month car payment started bothering me too. I should have just traded it in on a different color, but I decided to get something cheaper and more economical (sound familiar?), so I got a 14 Honda Accord. Really nice car, but I really missed driving a Mustang. So, I traded that for a base v6 Race Red. Just got that three weeks ago this coming up Friday. No more trading (it's actually 5 Mustangs, not 4 since 2012). I'm paying it off this month and not worrying about car payments any longer. I've wasted a lot of money since 2012, I'm done.

My advice to the OP, sell your car outright or take it to a place like Carmax and sell it to them. Hopefully you won't be upside down on the car. Then buy a beater car/truck and then save up and buy a garage queen.


If my Mustang had any sort of potential collectibility I may consider parking it and driving something else. However, my car has no chance of ever being collectible, therefore, I drive it everyday.

I just don't understand why people buy a low end version of a popular car and then won't drive it because it's hurting the resale value, mileage or whatever. It's a Mustang and not a special one at that. Drive it and enjoy it. If you don't like, get something else that you do.

Just like sakib, grabberblue and mikeygaga have said I want to get a used car/truck. It's really just to stop racking up miles on my mustang even though it's only nearly 8 months old. Honestly I wasn't even looking for a mustang to buy, I was in the market for a truck or econocar but I'm happy to say I got the mustang. I'm not worried about snow since it doesn't even snow here in south Texas haha but when it and IF it rains it sometimes gets flooded not good conditions to be driving in my mustang. The OP can look for a good used car if he doesn't want his mustang as a daily driver. Like someone else said earlier I wouldn't trade in the mustang since 2015's are on the way. Do some hard thinking, in the end it's your decision and your vehicle.

I am not adverse to putting miles on my 13 GT, but I don't drive it in NW Ohio winters period unless the roads are completely dry, and no salt dust on them; which means never until the spring rains wash the roads clean. I also don't drive it in the rain, unless I get caught, and when I do I power wash the underbody. I was taught that by a Boss Lady I worked for that had a Lotus with lots of miles and looked brand new. That is the point, at 250K miles I want it looking still new and not rotting underneath
