That is a purely personal decision, it's "worth" is determined by how much you prefer one over the other, your own taste and desires. But as for specific cars vs. those in general they are both fine cars. Personally I would get the Mustang, but for no other reason than I like them better, not because I think one is better engineered or anything like that

Where did you get the $4k figure diff? I looked up both on Edmunds and there is only about $1k difference

I too, would prefer the Mustang. Is Mitsubishi the one with the crankshaft walking problem?

Yeah. TS it is. The '95 to '99 Ecplise had that, A 'crankwalk' or 'walking' crankshaft, occurs when an engine has thrust bearing failure, and there was even a class~action lawsuit. Never heard what became of that though
