If you think you might regret buying a V6, you probably will..... It's all about attitude...
Wish I had an uncle like that when I went to prom lol

I didn't have a cool car for prom.... My nephew is a responsible young man who has always treated me right... He has driven the Roush before and drove it very well.. I guess it's my little chance to make his prom special...

You're a hell of an uncle. I had a couple uncles like that. Taught me all kinds of stuff growing up. Good and bad.

Mine were all gear heads and mechanics. I grew up in a shop. I've been into cars and racing all my life. Dad is the direct opposite.

My dad loved Fords and was a Ford mechanic but he has been gone for almost 15 years, and I miss talking cars with him...

Re: Anybody select a V6 and now regreting it?

I love my 2006 v6 Mustang. You have to keep it in perspective. It will never be a V8 Stang. But she always gets lots of attention every where we go!

Re: Anybody select a V6 and now regreting it?

2011 - 12 v6 has plenty of power, but if it's the sound you're worried about, opt for the performance package. Upgraded suspension, GT exhaust, and the coolest wheels you can get on a mustang. Other opinions may vary.

I had a 2003 v6 that started with 190 hp then became around 215-220 with tune, cai, exhaust. I never regreted getting that car because I was in highschool and college and the money saved was great but it gave me the oppurtunity to slowly add mods and increase hp which made the car new and more exciting with each new mod, the just recently I got an 11 5.0 so now to go from 220 to 420 hp and still have the oppurtunity to add mods to keep it new over yhe nxt few years, I would say if you have the money get a 5.0 but if you dont get a sixxer there is so much you can do to satisfy those little needs of more... I would just advise spacing out your modds so that you can.get some enjoyment out of each instead of all at once and then the excitments gone and your left with regrets

I was in your situation as well dean, I was between the 2011 v6 and 5.0 and was fully committed to the 5.0 until my insurance was quoted at 559$ a month, I ended up buying the v6 pony package loaded to the nuts, I have everything stock right now and honestly anyone that complains about these vehicles hasn't owned one the power obviously not comparable to the 5.0 but 305 hp is nothing to sneeze at they look great and go like hell, and the 6 gear on the highway yields awesome fuel economy I got 7 L / 100 km doing 125 km/hr on the highway, but it's all about how you drive it, I wouldn't cut the v6 out of your options, just my 2 cents

559/month or every 6 mos? Good Lord that would be expensive!

I went with the v6 because I got the package I wanted (MCA) and saved a lot on the car, insurance, and gas. Sure, a GT would be a lot of fun to drive, but I wouldn't be driving much with a suspended license 305/280 is plenty of hp/torque for me!

Re: Anybody select a V6 and now regreting it?

Man, that is crazy. Mine is $497/6 months with a $1000 deductible on collision, $250 on comprehensive, and uninsured motorist. It would've been another $80 or so per 6 months to go with the GT. Not a huge difference, but $497 is a lot higher than I was paying on my last car

That rate they quoted you was highway robbery unless you've been in high speed pursuits lol

Re: Anybody select a V6 and now regreting it?

I didn't regret buying a V6 until my friend just got a 5.0...

in all seriousness, the 3.7 is a great engine and being a student, I couldn't buy a V8 and even if I stretched to do so, wouldn't have been able to mod it like I do with my V6 which just isn't fun for me. If you have the means of doing so, buy a 5.0 - they're way more fun.

there is nothing wrong with a v6 as long as it is a v6 mustang, because mustangs rule the roads.
