Whenever I have been to USA there have been Mustangs and other similar cars available for rental.
I believe that the T4 Mustang would be an ideal candidate for rental in Australia as it looks good, uses little fuel, is fairly big inside and is not an camry/aurion/Hyundai etc.

So if the T4 Mustang was available for rental at about the same price as a XR6/Commodore is now in the near future would you consider it?

And of course there is a poll.

As a short termer absolutely.

As long as they price it accordingly and not as a luxury model.

If it was me and the Mrs only, or just me I would. If it included the kids obviously no way.

How old are the kids and how many?

If the kids require seats you are screwed with most rental models anyway.
Also this could be an excuse to put the kids out on agistment to give you a break :)

Depends on how much luggage and people I have.

If the missus and me with one suitcase or overnight bag then I would consider it. If like other times I have gone with 4 people and plenty of luggage then no as it wouldn't be like the Falcons I've rented as I would need space. Seeing as I rented one in the states a while back two people with two suitcases and a couple of bags pretty much rules out more then two people in the car.

3 1/2 and about 15 months. If we traveled we'd probably take our car seats with us as hold luggage.

We're kind of limited with who we could dump our kids with for anything longer than an overnight stay because everyone either works, is too far away, don't know well enough or wouldn't be able to cope!

Can you edit the poll to add another option "would rent if travelling alone/2 up?"

I would have voted yes to see what it was like and yes if as a package could accommodate my needs on the particular trip.

If for example only two of us were going to Bathurst next year I would be keen to rent the mustang. Three or four up, no way. It just wouldn't be as enjoyable with luggage on your knees.

Its the only thing i have asked for and its just on loop replay. Up and down up and down.

I again asked Nick to fix the mustang interior and he again refused.

You will be pleased to know i have moved on and will settle for a 290-310 kw xr6 t.
Lets see you make fun of that.


I would definitely do a road trip in a rental mustang by myself.


Hopefully someone does do rentals

Hopefully you haven't forgotten how the Z handles Tony because I'd like your opinion on how this compares.

Wheres the option for under 25, look 15 and no one will rent cars to me lol.

If I was at an age where a company would chuck me the keys to their Mustang for the day I'd give it a crack, turbo 4 doesn't worry me at all, would prefer manual though.

When I hire a car like this, I want the full effect. When we went to Hawaii in 2012, we hired a Camaro SS Convertible, and that was awesome. I really enjoyed that holiday, even though I was driving a GM car. If they had the Stang with the V8, then I would be all over it.

You sit in the driver seat and work the pedals, I'll steer from the passenger side, problem solved.
