2001 Ford Mustang Coupe 3.8L V6 from North America
Bliss on four wheels
The only thing to go wrong was the parking brake froze. Ran through the car wash in winter when the temp was 2 degrees above zero, then it quickly cooled to twenty below. I had to pour warm water on the brakes the following morning, then took it to the dealer to be lubed.
This car is a blast to drive. Anyone can afford one, and they come almost completely equipped. The V6 and five-speed combo is very economical to operate, with 30 to 33 mpg/highway a reality, and between 19 to 21 mpg/city. All this, plus the head turning styling of an all around wonderful car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I know that the 2001 Mustang V6 is priced reasonably. You say that anyone can afford it, how is the insurance?

I still own this vehicle and it has still not let me down. Still economical to operate. As far as insurance goes, my record is clean and I am in my early forties. Very cheap even with full coverage. I believe all sports cars are more money to insure, but whether I drive a Crown Victoria or a Mustang, my insurance is cheap. Maintenance wise, all he ever needed was oil changes and filters. Very easy on fuel, even at nine years old.

We own a 2007 V-6 Mustang and the insurance on it is very reasonable. It is actually about 30% less than the same coverage on our 2003 SUV. Of course, the V8 engine sends the Mustang insurance through the roof. I checked before buying my last Mustang and my insurance company quoted me a rate nearly double that of the V6 for the V8. That was my main reason for buying the V6 (as well as the fact that it was 7 grand cheaper to buy than the GT, which is identical in every respect except for the engine).
