Also, I forgot to mention, if you get a 2012 V6 you might want to check your manhood and see if it's been replaced with the V. No real man gets a V6 mustang.

Wait, I have a 2011 3.7! Hummmmmm!😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉

Just a near stock 3.7

That's a good price. Make sure you do a carfax first. Check on what is remaining on the factory warranty as you may be getting close to the end of the 3 year 36K. If still within that you can buy the Ford ESP plan which can go up to 8 years since day one the car was sold first and up to 125K.

I think I'll keep the extra 10k in my pocket instead of going with the V8.

Yeah but with the V8 coyote engine you have far more potential. Plus the V8 engine will make 4000 rwhp with just a Lund tune. The 3.7 will be lucky to get out of its own way.

I understand but I just can't justify the cost for a commuter. I drive 80 miles to work every day.

You're about to have this guy go drop some extra stacks that he doesn't have on a 5.0.

If this dude doesn't want his man card pulled away from him, he better drop those extra stacks and get the V8. He wants the V8. Everyone wants the V8 mustang so why punish oneself.

Heck, I bet he deserves the V8. I bet he works hard and doesn't want his manhood questioned about if he had his balls removed. Get the V8 and will never look back. The gas millage difference is almost nothing. If he gets the V6 he will get his nuts busted daily by his co workers and other people he doesn't even know.

Do the V8 bro. Be apart of the big mans club! 👍

Do you have a web link to said car? Hard to give opinions without seeing it. Otherwise, I will say whatever you wanna hear.

Extra Care Plan, one step below the bumper to bumper warranty with a $100.00 deductible is $1410 for 8 years and 125K. You can go to 150K for $2040. If you just want power train coverage $1075 and $1540.00 There is also Base Care for a couple hundred more. I buy all my Ford ESP from Flood Ford in RI, online. And I don't work for them. Hope that helps.

I worked for Ford for 23 years and you only buy Ford's own service plan. You do not buy one from a independent company which could go out of business or make you pay for the repair first and then have to wait for them to pay you back.

SMART MAN! It is usually a gimmick anyways. My wife bought one of those expensive plans and went the whole time without any issues. What a waste of money.

Slick, idk about price but it sounds ok....I will suggest if you want the ESP to buy it online. It is from Ford and most states will let you buy it. If anything it'll be a price you can take to the dealer. Remember wtty (& esp) is from Ford NOT the dealer. That being said I'm one who doesn't like extended wtty and if you are going to do any real mods to your car wtty work can be harder to come by.

No gimmick, you are just buying insurance like you do on your house or car or life. You wouldn't drop it on your house just because you are a handy at fixing houses. You hope not to use it but you pay for the security if the trans or a/c or a major component goes you are covered. If you sell the car before the warranty is over you can get a refund for the time and miles you didn't use. It pays for both parts and labor and rental use. I

That last part has never happened with me. We have purchased 2 of those in the past. From Dodge and Ford on newer cars. Of course both were traded in, but they said we were not eligible for any refund even though nothing ever failed.

I have no plans on getting the warranty. I always do most maintenance myself and enjoy it.

Do y'all prefer the manual or auto?

Auto reliable?

I never drove the auto, folks do complain about shift speed, but tunes will change that (along with bad mojo on wtty) my MT has been fine but I did the usual fixes= fluid/shifter/motor mounts. It is fussy and takes getting used to but I would make the same choice again

Very true. Manual is for men that have V8's and testicles that dropped. Automatics are for those V6 girly boys. 😉

You've used the same joke for 4 days now. 24 hours per day. It's hilarious.

Manual sucks for me at times. Stop and go traffic, and especially when I get leg locked in BJJ class and have to drive around with sore ankles / legs.
