Re: 2010 to 2011

yea, you can try selling private for a bit just to test the waters (and its around tax time) and if that wont work then try a trade.. but you will end up losing 2-4k probably on a trade vs selling.

+1. And you may not be able to 'carry' the entire inequity, into the purchase of the newer car, either...

Just give our friend Whipple a call. Instead of loosing tons of money trading in, add a supercharger and you'll be ahead of the game both financially and horse power wise.

I just got my 10 GT, and I was really shopping for the 11 5.0. I got a smoking deal on my 10, and I really won't push the car that much. I'm not racing for pinks LOL so I'm not worried about losing the 100Hp right now. And the 10 has all the other amenities I was looking for. I'm sure I'll trade in a couple years from now ( I usually trade in after 3 yrs) and maybe get the Boss! I'm really enjoying my car now, and will put a few mild mods on it over time. But I'm with you I barely scratch the surface on what this car can do. I figure I'll learn again how to handle and have fun with my hotrod, then upgrade in a few years. But doing an upgrade after a year is rough. You totally take it in the shorts.

There's nothing like the feeling u get when u stomp on theses 2011's. I've been in some really fast cars, GTR, viper, lambo, and Z6. I don't know why but this 2011 GT feels just as good if not better! Maybe because it's mine, but it makes my stomach feel like it's throwing a party every time.

I agree, 412hp through a steep tranny feels more like 500 but in the defense of the 4.6, I believe you can make more power for less $ given the discount up front. The good mileage can't be bought but mustangs aren't really for mileage anyway. You can strap on a 500ish hp blower for the difference and represent just fine.

I agree. I'll bolt on some mods over time and have fun doing it. And for the record I did drive a 5.0. It really is a monster, no comparison with the 4.6. But your right for the money I saved I can do a lot, and I a couple years we'll see if I trade up or just keep modding! I've never suggested my 4.6 is going to be as fast, I'm not trying to make it so. But I am thrilled with my modern and comfortable interior and cool Sync (like my Raptor).I'm just happy as can be to be back in a hotrod! I started with my first, a blue 1965 Mustang with a 302 (not the original of course, as it came with a 289), then got into a 1995 Camaro Z28. I sold them both around 1997, so it's been awhile. Anyway, glad to be here guys, and I'm loving seeing what ford is doing with the stang. I think it's going to be a cool next few years. So far we've got the 5.0, with the GT-500, GT-350, and now Boss 302. Awesome stuff!

I would stay with the 2010 cause the 2011 is a joke, they have already recalled the engine for the valves and also the transmission, I put a saleen supercharger on my 2010 and I don't have any problems kicking *** and taking names! Do the supercharger either Whipple or Saleen and see how you like that!!!

Re: 2010 to 2011

the issue with a supercharger is the 5-7k invested and then the car has no warranty and the money is pretty much lost

It's not a recall, just a random problem on early 2011's. Ford made a mistake. If u want go know about mistakes just ask ur parents.

A TSB is not the same as a recall. A recall affects all cars. The TSB is only for affected cars that have issues.

There are no recalls on the 2011 stands. Maybe a few TSBs, but that's it.

well i'm sorry for the incorrect info but i didn't know it was a difference, but I don't know I'm happy with my car so I'm not worried about the 2011, I just can't wait for the 50th to come out cause l'm sure that car will be the one to have, so how about we not fight about things, and try not to be like most mustang drivers and be jerkoff's!

A recall is sent to the vehicle owner notifying a repair that needs to be performed.
A tsb is a "technical service bulletin" meant to aid technicians of how to repair common problems. Not a free repair always. Only a guide.
There are special policies also. Repairs that may be performed for free or discounted rates after the warranty period has expired due to common problems to avoid class actions.
Hope this helps. TTT

Yes it does help, thank you!!! I'm slowing learning some of these things but yeah i'm glad i know the difference but it kinda seems crappy they know their is a problem but won't actually issue a recall so if the car ****s up and you wreck then its all well, not our fault cause its not a recall?

Safety issues are recalled. Law suits. They are not gonna tell the general public about tsb's. Service departments charge diag fees all the time even though there is a tsb which means they don't have to diagnose at all. It's a dirty world cuz.

Tsb's don't diag the problem. They help you pinpoint the cause of it by providing a test procedure for a pattern failure for whatever car your working on.

That would be called a diagnostic test procedure. Some tsb's have a check this check that but they are issued to shortcut lengthy diagnostics.

Yes they a shortcut so you don't have to waste time checking circuits or components that are not the cause of the concern. Tsb's are the first thing you should look at especially if the vehicle is under warranty.

Re: 2010 to 2011

2011's currently carry a 1500 rebate and 1000k towards a trade in if its a Ford (not sure all types Mustang is one of them).

Also the 2012s will be hitting dealerships sometime soon so left overs will be marked down... now might be the best time (or between now and the leftovers are sold)
