Default First Car: Ford Mustang 2004 or Scion Tc 2006?

I just turned 19 and after getting my license, I've decided it's time to buy my car (Not spending more than $6,500. I've narrowed down my choices to the Mustang and Tc. They each have pro's and con's. My major ones are that the Mustang has a horrible interior in my opinion, and I've heard isn't as reliable. The Tc is a bit small. But, this will be my first car, and as a girl attending college, I don't plan on having family ANYTIME soon. It'd be for me to get to school, work and hang out with friends and family. YES, they're both chick cars. I want opinions on people who have driven them. Whats's the good and bad of both? Thanks!

If none of those, then what other cars in that price range do you recommend? I'm basically looking for a chick car, affordable and reliable (Not much of a Honda girl). Thanks

To be honest the scion is more practical it will save you a lot in gas and insurance it's also more reliable scion is basically Toyota

The mustang while tempting is not the best choice for a first car typical American gas guzzling compared to other cars the same size it also has more power

The mustang is rear wheel drive which means if it snows or gets slippery you might fish tail which means the back will slip and slide

Fromt wheel drive which is what the scion has is a little bit more secure in slippery conditions except when you launch off like on a red light you can't immediately step on the gas because the wheels will spin and your car might shoot forward so let go of the brake let the car roll a little and then hit the gas slowly

Basically reear wheel drive is like pushing the car

Front wheel drove drags the car

You go faster with rwd but have more control with fwd
