#1 reason. It’s expensive?:cwl:

Im done here. You boys try not to wreck those Mustangs. Or tear off your bumpers if we get more than 4 inches of the white stuff. Can you drive a Mustang in the snow? Sure you can. Is almost everything out there a better option? Of course it is. Next thing some idiot will come in and say, he rides his Harley in the snow!
I have a second car I primarily use in the winter, but I also hate letting my fun car sit doing nothing for 5 months, so I take it out some days when it's above 40. Well one time I got stuck in a storm going home, and it was completely fine. Even with no seasons. So that's what I'm basing my opinion on. Obviously there are better choices. But these cars arent bad at all despite seeming like they would be. Modern winter tires are also amazing. I'd rather have a 2wd with winter rubber over awd with no seasons.
This cost me $2k last fall for its first winter, this year shouldn't be too bad, but Sotozzero 3 winter performance on square setup did fantastically....
Used the "wet/snow" mode I think 2x all winter? And last year OH got good amount of snow...

I can guarantee you I was better prepared for winter with my dedicated winters than probably good 2/3 of people with all seasons on their AWD vehicles thinking they're invincible and not adjusting for weather.

The Sotto's are great. As are the Michelin PA4's I got for the Charger.

If the Mustang is a summer only ride, target a convertible that is orphaned at a non-Ford dealer, as they are more flexible & lower on price. I might be the luckiest recent Mustang buyer in USA. I found a '16 GT vert w/PP1, Shaker stereo, NAV, Roush SC, Magnaflow exhaust with new tires for $39k thus summer. Just 12k miles. Deals are out there, but you need to search everyday, several times a day, and be prepared to fly & buy on short notice.

That is a good idea for some, but convertibles are not for me.

ouch, I'm not sure I'd chalk up 39k on that '16 to be a good deal even under normal circumstances.
