Planning on a buying a used Mustang, Advice welcome.

I think I am about to get back into a Mustang. I currently own a 2009 Audi TTRS. The power and handling if just incredible. I am not looking to duplicate the performance but hoping to find a long term reliable fun Mustang. I plan to keep this car for about next 7 years and accrue probably 160000 miles. I do not feel comfortable with the TT not having some very costly repairs in that time frame. I can not find any used parts at all. I grew up with a good Ol 1982 mustang Gt and did all kinds of work to it. It was wild but fun. So now I'm in the position to get something in the 2011-2014 range. $22000 is probably my budget. I think I would be ok with a V6. I have read about V6 reliability issues and then all this talk about bubbling paint. I don't want to find out these are not very reliable too. Of course used parts are abound. So I guess I am just looking for any advice at all to help with my plan. I will be looking at automatics. Thanks in advance, Tim
