In fact, a Challenger is a little easier to see out of and know where the corners are than the Camaro.

I thought my next car would be a camaro as I don tcare for the new mustangs at all, but after reading this thread I might just look for a used 2014 camaro with very low mileage.

I'd take a look at all the 11-14s unless you simply have to have the newest. But a LOT of garaged Coyotes out there. Good way to save money and headache is to look at some of the bigger Mustang forum classifieds and see if someone is selling a 11-14 near you. Very often it will have been garaged or if not VERY often you can look back in the seller's post history to see how the car was treated and get an idea if they were a moron or not. Buying off a lot you have no idea if the person before you had their head all the way up their *** or not.

Condition is more important than miles TBTH. If yours is really nice with only 50k I would not get rid of it for literally the same car (minus a few cosmetics) that is an unknown for you. That's just me.

Got a 2011 that I just love...will probably be buried in it. Had a 2013 that just never grew on me. Did not like the front end or white interior, I should never have bought it in the first place. I just traded it on a 2016. Jury's still out but this could become my new favorite Mustang ever.

Oh I am talking 3 or 4 years down the road, perfectly happy so far and the few minor tweeks on the 2014 is not enough to convince me to get on now.

I love the way the mustangs look and I love the way the Camaro looks, but never drove in one but it seems like everyone says they are a pain with those windows. I also have no clue about their model system but it seems like they tend to be more expensive then the mustangs.

Id be interested in a v6 thats dressed up like the premium gts. Unlike the 4banger i can make a cyclone sound good. But i guess ima have to wait for the roush v6 to drop a good amount in price before i can consider a 2015+

You know after looking at the convertible 2016 online I think I could get into it. So I might have options later on.

Found both online - Found one on Car Guru's 1/2 hour from where we live the convertible and then found the coupe on AutoTraders.com in Northern GA. Never figured to have 2 but my husband fell in love with mine and wanted one of his own the small maroon pick-up in the background of his picture is our 2001 S10 Chevy ext cab 4X4 - for our winter driving needs. But now we are enjoying the mild weather (until net week with his) Mine has been tucked away for the winter since 2nd weekend of November.

I have 2 2014 GT/CS Premiums and one is a convertible (she is mine the other is my husbands coupe with panoramic glass top. Get the Premium and if you can find a Cali Special - I love her look over a regular 2014 GT. Don't like the fog lights in the middle of the grill and not fond of the rear spoiler. All things I suppose you could change. But the convertible was a birthday gift from my husband and we love it to death. If I could have anything added to it other than the Corsa Sport GT500 Quad Axleback and valance I put on - wow she sounds fabulous. I would look for the Navigation system - I know alot of people think it isn't necessary - but we have it in the coupe and love it. I now am going to buy an aftermarket Raxiom Navigation system with back-up camera (I can't tell the back end of the car or the front ) and wish I had the original touch Ford like my husband has - I know it's not perfect but neither is the Raxiom. With the convertible being our fun summer car for trips etc - it only makes sense to have the navigation system in mine. Just a few thoughts from an owner.

I am the opposite, I prefer the fogs in the grill and do not care for the rims on the CS, I do like the spoiler better on the CS though, but the one on the regular GT does not bother me.

I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but regardless of Ford saying "they are committed to the V8 in the Mustang"...............I can see the V8 being phased out within 3 to 5 years.
CAFE ratings are simply going to be the driving force in engine selection and mpg ratings sooner than we think................53 mpg corporate average within 9 years!!

I am sure it will keep getting put off, but even if they dont offer a V8 I will just find a used one with low mileage.

Thee loopholes in that make it really about 45, and it's a fleet average.
