Default Looking For A Daily Driver

Hey everyone, I'm currently looking for a daily driver. The budget is $5-7,000.

I have a couple choices so far. Mustang Gt, Honda Civic SI, or a truck.

What model mustang do you guys think is the best daily driver?

I found a really cool Mach 1 on Auto Trader. But it has 130,000 miles on it. Its an 03 model. Is this too many miles for the motor?

I have owned an 02 mustang Gt that I replaced the motor on and sold. So I only got to drive it for a little bit before I sold it.

I also found some 05 model GTs for around 5 or a little more. I'm not familiar with the 05 and up motors.

Thanks.

For my money, the best bang for the buck is an older Mustang with a 5.0L HO, preferably manual trans. I bought this:





last May for $2500. Original paint, almost flawless, decent optional 17" tires, leather, runs beautifully, 161K, not worried about the miles a bit. Not a single drop of oil evident underneath. Has burned no oil in 1000 miles.

My first car was a 94 v6. It hardly had any issyes either, Sounds like a great deal.

What are common items that go out on 5.0 HO?
