I am in the market for a new car. I recently had a 2003 V6 Mustang, but it was leaking and other issues so I’m looking to upgrade. I found a 2001 V6 Firebird and a 2000 GT Mustang. Which car is more worth buying? I am also considering a SE Charger if that is any better. Any help is appreciated.

Get the mustang gt. The pontiac has too many miles on it and im not sure how reliable the v6 is at ~184k miles on it. Ive dealt with a v8 mustang new edge and it had ~150k at first. It lasted till 201k miles, and that car was abused (lol, never really took great care of it unfortunately). The sn95 is a very strong engine, so for a new edge mustang gt at ~140k, you can drive it for a couple years without any problems, as long as you maintain it. Also its a manual, so you wont have any major transmission problems, like the automatic 01 mustang gt i drove. (The tranny started slipping a little around ~195k miles) And also ITS A V8! It sounds amazing, its fast, and its fun to drive. Just dont get pulled over :D (ps: the picture was my 2001 mustang gt. Notice that the front bumper had to be changed, because of an accident lol) edit: Also account that because it is a v8, gas consumption isnt amazing. It makes a humble 15-17 mpg depending on how you drive it, so keep that in mind. The mustang was driven a CRAP TON and had issues with fuel delivery, so i spent close to $350 a month on gas 😕  but i still loved the car, and i had a great time driving it.

I looked at the pictures more. And realized thats not a manual, its an automatic. Just remember that the mustangs transmission is average, when it comes to durability. As i mentioned it tended to slip at around 195k miles, but still drivable. Didnt have any major problems on the transmission.

Mustang all the way. I actually really like the look of the FIrebird, but I agree with Daniel about the miles & wear & tear. Not to mention you'd avoid the transmission problems with it being a stick.
