What Should I Buy

Wow! It's been a very long time since I've been here and a lot of changes have been made to this board. I really don't know if I'm posting in the right place! I had a 2004 V6 that I wrecked in 2004. I bought an Infiniti and have put over 100K miles on that car and now looking to get new car. My wife has asked me to get another Mustang.

The problem is that I don't have a lot of money to spend and really can't afford a high car payment right now. I want to buy new because I would like to have a warranty for at least a few years. A GT is my first choice but it looks like I'm more in the price range of a V6. A few dealerships have a few '08 sitting around which I'm sure I can get for a few thousand less than an '09.

I haven't really done any research and don't have the time that I would like to read up on all of latest and greatest. Anything that I should look for or avoid? Is the '08 the same as the '09 for the most part or should I choose one over the other? I might even consider a used car with 10k or less. Bottom line, I'm looking to keep payments cheap. What are your thoughts?

Thanks!

Re: What Should I Buy

The 08 is the one to buy as we speak, its gonna be alot cheaper do to the fact of they want them gone for the 09 models. Im pretty sure they are the same car.

Re: What Should I Buy

since the 09s are bringing major changes, you might find some steals (new or used). just keep an eye out for it.

Re: What Should I Buy

Thanks! Great suggestions from all of you. This will be my daily driver and I drive roughly 70miles round trip. So the warranty will run out very quickly either way I go. GT is my preferred choice but money is a big issue and the only way to get a GT in an affordable price range would be to purchase used with something like 40k miles. Because of the high miles I put on my Infiniti, my blue book value is horrible so I'm still upside down on that car. The only way to overcome that is to take advantage of the incentives Ford is offering right now. So I'm off to the dealership tomorrow. The only question is if I'm going with an '08 or an '09 V6. They had some '07 Saleens on the lot but I'm sure that is waaaaaaay out of my price range.
