I'm not sure how other cars would be safer. This isn't meant to be mean or insulting, I just don't get it. The mustang has a 4/5 star crash test rating and is overall a very safe car. What would make the other cars safer other than just a placebo effect cause it's larger?

By all means though, the larger cars ARE more practical, easier to get kids in and out of, etc. And if the OP would prefer to get it, that's his choice and more power to him (or her).

i have nothing against stangs but i still think keeping a car you want vs getting something you need is a bit selfish. non of us need a stang. its fun but i would sell mine in a heart beat. if i needed too.
None of us really need suvs either. Plenty of really fast sedans out there if you must get a grocery getter.

You only lose money if you trade it. Depreciation means nothing until you sell it. In his case he's gonna take the worst part of the hit.

He'll end up getting a ford escape and have a loan amount of a gt500. Not cool at all.

This thread cracks me up. OP -- sell the car if you must, but don't trade it in if you're going to get snookered like that. The dealer is going off KBB trade in values for your car (and low-balling to boot) for the US, but you didn't pay the US price for the car. Sell the car privately or go to another dealer if you're intent on getting rid of it. If I still had a baby-aged child and only one vehicle, it probably wouldn't be a GT/CS. It's just not practical for babies, though it can be done. Now a Focus ST, however... that's a different story all together

Here's my question... if you can afford 48K for a GT/CS vert, why not... get a second ride? Something pedestrian, used, and cheap. Four grand buys a lot of car. Plus paying cash means you don't have to carry collision insurance (at least in the States I don't know how it works in your country that is 45 minutes away.)

Silver - the fastest color.

2013 Mustang GT P 6M: Second Generation MT-82, Barton shifter and bracket, Catch can, MMD hood struts, Blendmount, Bama 93R. Next up - Headers and off-road X pipe, axle backs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Replica: $400? No. I'm good. Stock one is fine. It throttles and bodies just fine.

because its been proven over and over that the safest place for a child to sit is in the middle of the back seat. correct me if im wrong (which im not) mustangs dont have a middle back seat. i can name many instances where a sedan/suv/truck are alot safer for a child than a pony car. i never said the mustang wasnt safe, i said "to get a safER car"

I would never trade or sell my stang for a 15k hit lol. That's just not financially smart in any situation new kid on the way or not. You can find an "SUV" all day for 10k why not just get a slightly used one? I just don't see how that big of a hit is beneficial imo.

2012 Race red, 6mt, 3.73s, Roush ABs :shiny:, Bbk Xpipe, Resonator Deletes, Eibach Pro Kit, J&m adj panhard, steeda intake bama tune, AM shifter, Saleen Replica wheels and Nitto tars!

What you need for a safe family and kid hauler is a Explorer. How about the twin turbo Explorer Sport Ecoboost. Not exactly a Stang, but it could still be fun and give you what you want as far as safety and capacity......It's going to cost you either way! best regards Plum
