2008 V6 Mustang

Hey guys glad to be apart of the forum! I'm considering buying an 08 coupe with 55k miles on it! Should I pick it up? It'll be my "first car" that works aha. Anybody got any I put on this car year and model?! Anything I should look for specifically?! I heard these cars run forever if you treat em right! Send me some input guys! I'm going to the dealership Friday!

If you are simply looking for a nice, fun, reliable automobile, these are great. If you are looking specifically for a Mustang with power, get one with a V8 engine.
I love my V6. It is an automatic transmission. After the basic modifications (cold air intake; after market muffler; change of spark plugs & wires; 'bama tunes) this gal runs great and has oomph to get in and out of traffic. I have an American Thunder on mine, but the muffler to get is a Magnaflow. Better on the ears at certain RPMs. You could go dual exhausts, but on a V6 I consider that to be superfluous, unless you are doing it for performance.
The 4.0 is a great engine in the 2008. If you are okay with a V6, you will love this car. I know I love mine.

Very strong and reliable engine. I put 203,000 miles on my 2006 before selling it in June 2012 and ordering the 2013. That was after running a 75 shot of nitrous on it for 2 years and then pulling the nitrous and putting the Xcharger Xtreme supercharger on it at 90,000 miles.

One thing to watch for is the thermostat housing. It is plastic and will split, usually toward the back, and spray coolant under the intake manifold. Look for any signs of water there. It is an easy fix, but when it goes it usually gives you no prior warning.
