Basically what the title says. For you guys that use a gt as a dd can you tell me some pros and cons? I'm looking at a 98 gt 5 speed right now and I'm looking for some reasons to go through with it after I check it out

I get around 15 mpg city 19 hwy. Mines an auto with a performance tune. No cats and a cai. Not too shabby but I've got a civic for when I really want to save money lol. As far as comfort, id go with the stang every time, as long as you don't mind shifting in and out of heavy traffic

I would be commuting to and from college (25 minute drive) as well as to work which is only a 5 minute drive. How much on average would you say you spend on gas and around how much is your insurance(feel free to not answer if that's an odd question for me to ask you)?

Full coverage on my mustang is $50. And it cost around $60 to fill from empty with 93 octane. Get 300+ miles per tank.

If you're looking to save gas, don't even think about buying it lol. But if u just want a fun dd

My 96gt never cost me more than 110$ for insurance. I also averaged a good 19mpg city and nearly 30 on the highway. I'm kind of a natural hypermiler and it makes a big difference. But even when I had the red mist, i never was upset with the gas consumption. But let me put it this way, gas is cheap (no really, it is stupid cheap especially in the US) It's only going to get more expensive. So get the car and enjoy it now.
