Mustangs are great in Alberta. It's just best if they never have to be driven in the winter.
Have to echo what TheBert said. His money, his choice. Still, you can give an opinion as to what makes a wise choice and this may help him realize his mistake later. Of course a kid wants a mustang or TT. Cool factor, quick and a sure bet to help him with the girls. (a lecture about teen pregnancy would be appropriate about now.) We all get that.
If you don't mind paying or he's pretty rich, all good. Young boys tend to cost at some point.
With our three daughters we went kinda like Bert. All brand new, all front wheel drive. Honda Civic, Kia Soul and then Mazda 3 hatch. Not fast enough to get into trouble, not sexy enough to make you want to show off and get a slow car into trouble. And, all now with at least five years no repairs, no accidents and clean records. Can't say the same for their male cousins who got the odd hand me down luxury car, sport truck, etc. ALL with accidents (many multiple), tickets, etc.
Boys are like that. Sorry to typecast, but it tends to work out that way. And in Alberta, where we both live, you know what an accident and/or tickets do to insurance rates.
On the plus side, if your kid gets a mustang or TT, he will look really cool. A plus for you is that to his friends and acquaintances you also will look cool because it will be assumed that you allowed it to happen. Not a totally bad tradeoff.
Tough decision. I wish you
All the best.
