V6 Mustang for first car?

Hey guys, Im 15 and working on saving for my first car (Probably summer of next year) and I really like Mustangs. Now first off, Im not some rich kid who is getting a brand new car from his parents, Im buying it myself, and paying for the gas. I am looking at 1999-2003 Mustang's with the 3.8L (Basic Model) My question is, if this car is under my parents insurance with me as a driver how much will the insurance go up? Also, is this a good first car? Im not a crazy driver like alot of teens, I am acually really cautious when driving. Thanks!

How much are you looking to buy a v6 for? Save another grand and get a GT man. GT's aren't too expensive anymore. Also put the car in ur parents name and have them put it on their insurance. Makes things way cheaper. I bought my first car and I bought my second car, my mustang. Got my GT a year ago for $4900 with 84k from the original owner. So you can find a good deal on a GT. They're worth it.

For full coverage on my stang, I pay $85

Im only spending around $3000. When you say put the car in my parents name do you mean list them as the primary drivers and me as part time or whatever Geico is calling it now?

You can get a GT with a few miles on it for close to that price. I mean put the title of the car in ur parents name. Then have them add the car to their insurance so that the car itself is insured. That way anyone driving the car is insured. You won't be insured specifically, but if you are driving the car you will be insured. That's how I did it in high school. I got in a fender bender too and everything was covered including my medical bills.

I wouldn't suggest getting a GT at the age of 15.... just stick with a v6 for now, learn how to drive better, and upgrade in a couple years. I had an 05 V6 till last month when I upgraded to a 13 GT

It's like learning to ride a street bike on a 1000.. Some can some can't.. Learned to drive with a 5.0L, learned to ride on a 600..

It's all about respect and paying attention and having respect for the machine.

Problem with a Fox 5.0L as a first car is they don't turn or stop as well as they go.. Again.. All about respect..

i agree on not getting a GT as a first car....i've had both v6 and v8 mustangs and well...i know that if i had my GT when i was younger i would of done alot more dumb stuff, and wound of in big trouble or dead. Start with a sixxer and one day go for the bigger power...heck i love the v6's so much i even sold my GT for a better condition sixxer, and couldn't be happier.

Now OP i will say that as far as reliable cars go they are great...easy to work on, and give you the great look of a mustang with the insurance and gas mileage of a v6. If you have any detailed questions feel free to pm me

FWIW I pay 70 per month for liability and uninsured motorist on my 01 gt. All under my name and being 18. As for fuel economy, I was able to pull off 27.7 MPG when I first got it. Realistically I get around 22. Back on topic though, a v6 is a great first car. Look at it this way, at least your first car won't be a $750 Nissan like mine was.

I got my gt for $3100. You just have to be willing to look and haggle. Insurance is $110 with it in my parents name and on their insurance plan.

You have to be realistic. If your responsible and won't be stupid then get the gt. if your going to be an idiot get a sixxer. I got a gt but I know that I'm responsible enough to handle it. They do have a lot more go than they do stop, but just don't be dumb. As far as gas goes it isn't that big of a difference as long as you don't have a lead foot, but even then you could still get awful mpg in a v6.

People think with more power equal more danger but I remember losing control the first time I drove my v6 and I wasn't do anything wrong. A v6 doesn't have the extra things a v8 has. Whatever car you get you must be responsible. Also gas mpg if that is your biggest concern look for a daily driver. I like my v6 looks good,decent power and has okay gas.

Insurance depends on the area. I don't have any speeding tickets or claims yet mine is higher then yours. Also mpg depends on a lot of factors but number one is the driver and then the second to me is auto or manual. Auto are lower, while in a manual you can get a bit more plus more power

Ill agree that area is a factor, but which insurance company is a bigger factor. Only insurance that was remotely reasonable was geico. All the others for me were 150+. Don't know why there is a huge difference. As for mpg, manuals usually get better fuel economy.

I have a V6 for my first car and I love it. Better for your first car to be a bit safer, considering myths about a first car. Lol. Plus it's just cheaper that way. Especially at your age. Upgrade to a V8 later. Stick with a V6 for now and just mod it up.

I'm 19, my first car was an 02 V6. Had it for a year ten finally stepped up to a GT. Had that for two years now. I regret ever buyin a v6. Horrible first car. If you like mustangs, you won't like a v6. Extremely slow and not as good on gas as they should be. Take extra time to save and get a gt. that's my advice.

And my insurance was cheaper for my 01 GT than for my 02 V6. I was on my parents plan though

I would have to disagree with that. But I have an 05 V6, so I guess my situation is a little different. Lol. But my dad had an earlier V6 and it didn't seem slow at all, and gas seemed fine to me.

I was very disappointed driving my sisters v6, felt like it had alot less power than my little grand am gt did (first car) and it was rated at like 30 less hp. I guess I'm just used to my full bolt on roaring gt, it has spoiled me haha

What made you happier with a slower car? Besides mpg... that's not what mustangs are about though

Maybe I had a bum car or something. Mine had 60k miles on it and totally stock show room condition when I bought it. Everything went down hill from there though. Lots of replacement parts were bought. Had so many problems

You'll pretty much have the slowest car on the street with a V6. Gettin out run by civics all day. Do you want that? Lol don't think about taking it to a car show, I got a lot of s**t when I did.

I had to replace a lot in mine but because my car went through heck and back with the previous owner and sat at the dealership for years, on top of being a test car. Yet it still runs amazing. So did my dads. And I was in a car crew with nothing but tuners, and a lot of them liked my car. It just depends on the car, I guess.

lol depends what you mean by slower...on a straight sure, but put you and me on a road course or back road and we'll see if you can keep up to me it just sounds like you got made fun of and couldn't handle it lol

Idk, I took my sisters on a back road and floored it, didn't even chirp the tires and it took forever to even get to 60. Just seemed disappointing to me. But to each's own.

your sister is also in stock trim, but what's nice about a NE v6 is how the weight is displaced on the car. Makes a really nice corner carver with little work You don't need to chirp the tires to have a respectable car, but that might just be an age difference

after tracking both my GT and v6 i'll say that with the same mods my GT would not be able to keep up with my v6 on corners, but come the straights my GT would pull away. Really depends on what you want in the car...

I suppose that's true, as far as the car goes it's not a bad vehicle, just not near as fun IMO. It's just a preference. I like roaring straight line muscle cars.

I like going in the turns fast too. I set up my v6 for corners. Now all I need is to save up and buy a procharger

I'm 17 and my first car was my 06 gt which I love. The only reason I got it was because I'm very responsible! I love having all that power. I would not want to downgrade to a v6 because of how much less hp it is. Also my friends know not to mess with me because they know they can't win. If you have a chance to get a decent gt, do it you will love it!

Just went creepin in the v6 section and saw this. My first car was an 02 v6 manny. Loved it. The manual aspect made it feel fast for me despite it had 190 hp. I sold that for exactly what I bought it 3 years down the road. I bought a 2011 v6 and I can get the 305 hp (260ish) and 31 mpg. Look for a new edge v6. Don't go for the GT. I test drove one when I was 15 and it scared me because one) hasn't bought it, two) I like speed. So my dad and I settled on the v6. It was nice and comp orange/ red in some light. I saved about 2,000 for mods so I spent that on a all new sound system, which is now in my 2011 premium. Also upgraded the body and saved the rest. It's smarter for your wallet and life to get a v6. Also as some have said, respect it. And know what it can and can't do. Don't go outside that box and you'll be good to go. I've spun my 02 around a few times. It's enough power to scare you but not kill you. (Horrible saying of mine I know) also they don't have ABS or traction control so you learn to drive right. I think that's all I can think of. Btw I'm in Alabama. You can go from mobile, all the way to the Tennessee line with 1 tank.

The word "responsible" doesnt really fit well next to "love having all that power" IMO.
