I liked the T-bird but not for the money they were asking, I also like the
Mustang GT, but gas prices made me decide against it since my foot would
have the tendency to stomp into it more often than not. So whats left...that
is sporty with a performance 6 cyl? I want something sleek stylish, sporty
and with a touch of personal luxury. To bad the Fusion fails in the sleek
stying department. Hmmm...maybe one day Ford will get the message as to want
I want..maybe...maybe not.
The problem is, V6 engines are *not* available with the GT package.
It's either plain V6 or GT V8 with all the whizz-bang. GIve the customer
the choice for a plain V8 or a GT V6 (2 options that would help sell
My ignorance shines brightly! I didn't know that detail.
Honestly, call me a traitor, but I'll take my Mercury Capri with a 1.6L
DOHC 4-banger over a new Mustang any day. Why? I'm cheap, it gets
better mileage, and if it blows up, I'm not out a few tens of thousands.
Call me a traitor for driving a modified Mazda 323, but I like it.
I thought that is what the "Pony" package was. A Mustang V-6 with the GT
styling features. What does the GT have that you can't get with the V-6
(other than the engine)?
I bought a 2006 V-6 "stripper" for my son and I am very impressed with the
car. It actually cost less than a Civic LX Coupe, yet it still has power
windows, power locks, AM/FM/CD Player, height adjustable drivers seat, alloy
wheels, etc. The V-6 engine is very strong. I am not sure I would get the
V-8 if I bought the car for myself. We have had it for about 3 months and so
far it has been perfect. For the money, it is hard to see anything even
close to it.
It's a little out of this group, but I was rather shocked when I
actually looked up the price for brand new Toyota Celicas. They're
awfully flashy little cars, and you'd think they would be expensive. It
was pretty weird to find out that the base package is cheaper than most
of their other vehicles. I think there will always be a market for the
"value" sports cars like these, for those of us who really don't want to
dump $25K into a car but still want to ride in style. I wouldn't want
the V8 either, in all honesty--I have no need for that kind of power.
The only V8 vehicles I intend to have are my current 88 Crown Vic and my
old 74 Chevy Van 30, both of which run just fine (electrical issues aside).
Well, that is what the Edge is.....they just don't want to call it that.
They don't want to call it a mini van either. So it is a Cross Over
SUV....just like the Five Hundred Station Wagon - aka Freestyle.
Too bad the Lincoln LS is gone.
That was going to be my next car, but smart like a dumptruck (well guess
they dont make dumptrucks anymore) Lincoln has done away with what i
thought was the next best thing to a Marauder/Crown vic
