Noob from CA

Have not yet purchased the vehicle. But I am looking at the '11 GT 5.0 with the Brembo Brake package.

Not by choice but this will be my first car by a domestic manufacturer. The last purchase was almost an '06 GTO but things just were not right for the time I guess.

My current car is an 06 Subaru WRX, been a complete nightmare from the beginning. Two days after purchase heading home and a piece of plywood flew out of the bed of a truck and hit the hood/bumper, $2500 dmg. Within 2 months it was broken into and I got rear ended not once, but twice. Watch out for Sacramento drivers. Unknown mechanical issues right after purchase. Never came back, but made me nervous. Did not realize when I bought it but when they upped the hp/lb-ft, they made no changes to the tranny. So my tranny just got rebuilt w/ under 50k miles on the odo. And now a sound kind of like you putting a card in your spokes on a bicycle coming from the front end that no mechaninc can seem to find a reason for. Idk, I think it's a sign from the car gods, time to move on.

I test drove just about everything, always been a fan of GM, sorry don't mean to offend Ford faithful, but after driving the new Camaro I was pretty disappointed. Personally did not think it was worth $40k. So I listened to a buddy of mine, definite Ford fan and owner of a Fox body 5.0 Cobra and test drove the new 5.0. Fell in love.

Now I've done my research, got past the test drive adrenaline rush and just wanted to get to hear from some other fans about their opinion on the new 5.0.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

I definitely think you made the right choice in performance cars. The new mustangs are so well balanced, it's amazing...handling, power, comfort, amenities, just real well rounded cars.
