CPO Mustang 2010 GT Premium ???

Hi guys,

Firstly I'd like to say, I love this site. Learnt a lot about Mustangs.
Coming to the point, I have been looking at this Mustang GT 2010 premium and wanted to know what do you guys feel about the price, is it worth it ???

Carlsbad, CA 2010 Ford Mustang GT Premium Used Coupe San Diego, CA Oceanside, CA Ken Grody Ford-Carlsbad

I'm pretty sure that most will be laughing as to why would I wanna go for 2010 when there's 5.0. I know I know, but there's something about this car I just love. Also I found out (from recent test drives) that the v8 rumble in 2010GT stock is way more kick-*** then that 5.0. I test drove this car & its immaculate and fully loaded with everything except the nav (which I don't need anyway)

Also while driving the 5.0 I realized that it was not often that I could get to the 6th gear which I think would hurt the MPG as well.

I'm not the kind who's going to take the car to the tracks nor make much or any mods. I just want a car that's fun to drive. I currently own a 2002 mustang for which I already have a guy willing to buy it, so that's taken care of.

I really would appreciate if you guys gave me any advice, perspective, thoughts about this deal.

Thanks in advance ...

MUSTANG rulezzz !!!!

Nice looking car but the dealer is smoking crack if they think they can get anywhere near $29,000 for a 2010 GT. You can buy a brand new 5.0 base model for less than that with over 100 more hp, and with exhaust mod you will change your mind on the sound argument. Now if they sold you the car for 22,000 then that would be worth it.

dont, go 2011 5.0... you will regret it down the road if you do not for many reasons. Stock vs stock dont compare at that level, mods make all the difference.

crack or no crack that guy isn't budging (urgh!!!!!)...
A few weeks ago when the ad was 1st put up, the price was $30,977 and he said he can't go any less than that. Now he has come down 1k since this week.
I know its pricey but I can't stop thinking about this car
If only I had fallen in love with the 5.0 as much as I have with this, then it'd have saved me a lot of time ...

Re: CPO Mustang 2010 GT Premium ???

drive aother 5.0 lol, and thats way to much for this car in my oppinion, but if you just have to have it then buy it. the car should be priced at like 26 or 27 not 29 but if your willing to spend 3 grand extra then its worth it

Re: CPO Mustang 2010 GT Premium ???

hey guys,

Thanks a lot for your views & advice, appreciate it ...
Well, I gave in. Bought it last weekend & for the same price (which is the only thing sad about this but oh well)

Also I got the extended premium care & maintenance plan for 75,000miles ... Which begs the question, is it really necessary/worth it ??? Cause if its not, then I do have an option to cancel it. So lemme know if you guys have any idea on those ...

Totaling with the price, plans & taxes & **** - sure did make me utter a huge effin-sigh, haha

But all in all it's a sweet ride ... love it !!!

Id keep it for the piece of mind that it brings. But obviously this depends on your budget

Nice car! I'd keep the extended warranty unless you plan on heavily modding it at some point. I personally didn't get it because I plan on putting a blower later. Otherwise, it's a great thing to have IMO.

It's black ... but the lighting in the pic might have given it a blueish tint ...
and thanks for the welcome hug buddy ... appreciate it ... And i'm sure this is one hellofa loud family, haha ...

@skyline247 ... I don't actually see myself modding it, if at all It'd mostly do the exteriors I think ... I'm honestly not gonna take it to the track (that's what I'm thinkin for now ) just wanted to have a kick *** car which I would love to have around ... But I can see what you mean ...

Then I think it was good that you got the extended warranty. That's what I would have done in your position. It gives you less things to worry about.

Just be careful, from what i hear, once you get the modding bug there is no turning back lol.

Re: CPO Mustang 2010 GT Premium ???

A black 2010 GT with those same wheels is what made me start to like the newer body over the 05-09 S197s. But I just had to have it in the 5.0 version.
