I have a mustang right now, and im done with it seriously. the gas is horrible, its a coupe so it fits only two people and a really anorexic girl in the 'backseat'. I'm so ready for a four door, all leather, heated seats, and a luxury / power vehicle with a big trunk. only a few more months and ill have it.
My Trans Am actually does pretty well on the gas mileage (especially on the highway). LS1 engine is quite efficient... I'm able to get close to knocking on 30mpg's door on the highway (obviously, if I'm just puttering around) which is phenomenal for a 315HP car. The sixth gear helps with that, putting me at a cruise of like 1500 RPM at 70 MPH, lol.
However, I am plagued with a lot of similar problems to yours. Styling in the interior is great, but it is kinda cheap. I get the typical nickel-and-dime GM problems (I went through a few power window motors on my old 95, and damn was that a pain.) And my backseat is useless for anything other than lowered insurance.
But, I don't mind, because I bought it to be my "fun car" and I have a daily driver which I bought for practicality. The whole pony-car aspect is fun because it's cheap to make big power, and I like the V8 torque and sound. Now it's paid off, too, so I'm hoping to have some fun with it this season.
