Should I get this Mustang???

Check Kelley Blue Book on price. And google the VIN. Pretty car, when I got my 2014 v6 I was hoping I could get the brilliant white. And leather seats are probably nice.

Had to replace a water pump (warranty) at 39K miles but other than that love my '11. With the 3.73s, and a 93 tune, it runs like a bat out o' hell. Go for it, especially since it's a premium.

Just saw this, thought I should tell you I paid $18k for a 2014 with only 3 (yes, 3) miles on it. It doesn't have all bells and whistles, but I add my own. Dealers are lowering prices majorly for 2014's to make room for 2015's. Just a thought. You may prefer 2011.

I prefer the front end and grille options for the 2011-2012, but the rear end of the 13 and 14.

Shifty, you said you went and test drove the car, how'd it go?

I agree, the 2013-14 look like fat large mouth bass about to eat a bug. The 10-12 looks more streamline and resemble a 69' fastback.

With synthetic oil. They use a blend from the factory. Personally, I wouldn't take it that far, but it may not do any major damage as long as you don't beat on it.

So ideal mileage to change the oil in these is every 5,000 if you use synthetic?

It just depends on how you drive really. I use Royal Purple and the RD filter and change mine every 7000 or so. Still looks good at 7k, but I do it because I'm a bit of a perfectionist lol.

A good modern synthetic can last a long time. Even the Motorcraft blend it comes with from the factory isn't bad, it's usually good for anywhere between 6-10k, again depending on how you drive.

Nope I'm going to wait for the 2015's to come out. I test drove it and it was an extremely nice car

Wise man. However i will wait for the 2016. Just to see if they do what they did with the 2010 and 2011. (2010 had new body old engines, 2011 had the new engines )
