    Aright the time has come and iv put the explorer up for sale for 5800.
    not much interest but a few trades and this one has caught my eye.
    Its a 2000 Mustang GT with leather and its white with some red stripes. Its actully pretty nice but its an auto and has the 4.6L

    My truck has 184xxx and this car has 185xxx
    He is asking 7700 so this is a good deal on my end.
    What do these things get for mileage?
    are they fairly reliable?
    Any one have any info on them let me know.

    The Mustang is one of the most reliable cars you can drive, IMO. The 4.6L is every bit as durable as the 302 and you should get around 28 mpg on the highway and 20-22 mpg around town if it is in good condition.

    I would recommend finding one with a manual transmission. These cars are so much more fun to drive with a manual. It will also give you much better performance and better mileage than the auto.

    i would make that trade if you really want to part with your X and want to get a stang. the 99-06 mustangs are awesome cars. the dohc set up is sweet, not to mention they do get great gas mileage for a V8's. my sister had the 99 until she got hit by a drunk driver, and my brother has an 04 that still runs like the day he got it.

    There are 2 kinds of Mustangs out there.
    Those that have been beat on, and those that havent left the assembly line yet. :D

    ^That being said, I would trade.

    I have an '89 LX 5.0L sitting in the garage with 155k miles on it. I have shown that car no mercy since I factory ordered it. It has taken all I could throw at it, including a Kenne Bell blower running 12-16 psi of boost. The T-5 is a weak link if you run too much torque through it. Running them stock, Mustangs can take some abuse. All they ask in return is regular, basic maintenance.
