2012 v6 mustang or a Truck?

I know some of you may be a bit biased considering this is a mustang forum. I have gathered enough funds to buy the mods that I wanted for my car but someone has offered to buy it off of me. I do sort of wish that i bought a truck. Would it be wise to sell my mustang and buy a truck? I did buy the car from a dealership but i have paid for it entirely...how would i go about selling it with regards to warranty and what not with the dealership?

Unless you need a truck I would keep the car. I had a f150 4x4 super crew for my first vehicle and got rid of it for my mustang last year I didn't use the truck for pulling anything anymore or a 4 wheeler and it got 11 mpg and insurance was higher and the truck was wayyyy slower

The real questions are what do you want either vehicle for? And what are you willing to compromise in order to have what you want?

Warranty is the responsibility of Ford. Unless you have an extended warranty you need to transfer.

If you will be happier with a truck, get it. If the opposite, keep the Mustang. To satisfy all of my "needs" I bought a 1994 F150 4x4 for cash last year. It was why I could afford my Mustang this year.

My choice, would be to keep the Mustang and wait for a truck to come along.

Think of it this way: nobody will ever ask you to help them move just because you drive a stang

I'm lucky enough to have both. I will always have uses for my truck.

And when folks ask me to help them move, I mention that I charge $49.00 an hour, unless they are family.

I love driving my mustang. No doubt that it is a blast to drive but i cant bring it off roading anywhere and when i head to PA or wanna go tool around in the woods I cant use the mustang..Each vehicle has significant ups and downs >.<

I know what you mean.

I keep my Suzuki Samurai with four wheel drive. I have had it for a little over fifteen years and it has 160,000 miles plus on it with no problems at all except the rust is eating it up. I have been through five performance cars and now my Mustang . But with all of the offers I have had to buy my Samurai I just keep it and enjoy driving it. My dogs just plain love riding in it.
I suggest you find an old truck or jeep and keep your Mustang. There is nothing wrong with having two vehicle's.

Keep your Mustang for a daily driver and get on old truck for those times you need it

Before I bought my Mustang I was looking into trucks and Suvs. I had myself convinced I needed something I could put stuff in. That being said I saw a brand new GT one day and my decision was made. A week later I was as happy as could be with zero regrets!

OK, I have to concede that any vehicle with a happy dog face hanging out of it gets my up vote.
