  • Although it was used, it was mine and I found both the sleek, sporty design as well as the peppy performance to be pure perfection
  • I found this to be a somewhat advanced feature for a 2003 model and I loved blasting the music because the speakers sounded absolutely amazing, In regard to safety issues, I am unsure why my parents allowed a brand new driver to own a Ford Mustang
  • Not only is there the predicament of the rear wheel drive which makes driving in the snow and/or rain nearly impossible and very dangerous, there is also the issue of blind spots
  • Therefore I do not recommend this vehicle for a new driver that does not have at least a few years of experience under their belt
  • Although the car is small, it is heavy and gets terrible gas mileage The combined gas mileage between highway and city miles is around 18mpg, nothing to be impressed about

      A white 2003 Mustang was my first car, a monumental milestone in the life of a high school senior. Although it was used, it was mine and I found both the sleek, sporty design as well as the peppy performance to be pure perfection. The 193 hp and 3.8L engine were an added benefit as well. I purchased the car for $10,000 from a private seller located in the newspaper. At the time I acquired the vehicle, it had only 38,000 miles on it. Therefore, in my seventeen year old mind, the car was practically brand new.

      The model i acquired was the basic V6 Coupe, white with tan interior. I loved the way the white exterior blended with the tan interior and


      obviously still do judging by the fact that my current car features the same colors. The car was equipped with a decent manufacturer’s stereo system, which featured a six disc CD changer. I found this to be a somewhat advanced feature for a 2003 model and I loved blasting the music because the speakers sounded absolutely amazing,

      In regard to safety issues, I am unsure why my parents allowed a brand new driver to own a Ford Mustang. Not only is there the predicament of the rear wheel drive which makes driving in the snow and/or rain nearly impossible and very dangerous, there is also the issue of blind spots. Driving the car during the snow is simply not possible due to ...


      • the fact that there is absolutely no traction. Driving the Mustang during the rain is possible, but somewhat dangerous because the traction becomes impaired. The manner in which the car is designed creates a myriad of blind spots.

        It is nearly impossible to see out of the rear windows and basically difficult to see anywhere in the vehicle other than directly ahead through the windshield. Therefore I do not recommend this vehicle for a new driver that does not have at least a few years of experience under their belt.

        The gas mileage that the 2003 Ford Mustang gets is a definite additional con. Although the car is small, it is heavy and gets terrible gas mileage The combined gas mileage between

        highway and city miles is around 18mpg, nothing to be impressed about. When gas prices were up I woild spend $20 on gas every day. ( I also did a lot of driving). Two door cars are also somewhat annoying to begin with if you plan on riding with passengers in your back seat. If you have children that require car sears, forget it. The back seat of the 2003 Mustang is tiny.

        Overall, the car is beautiful, stylish and drives well. I never had any problems with it during the two years I owned it so it is certainly a reliable car. However, the poor gas mileage, blind spots, and rear wheel drive make it a poor choice for a new driver.
