2012 GT C/S @ $27k, good deal?

I'm going to trade in my 2011 V6 in the next week or two for a GT, and there's a beautiful black 2012 GT C/S with only 19k miles, for just over $27k. Would you consider that a good deal?

My other options would be a 2013 premium, or '14 base trim GT with track package, for right around the same price.

Is there any real big benefit for going with a 2013/2014 model, versus the 2012?

I don't really think it's a great deal, what options? what's the blue book on it?

You can Probably Get A Brand New 2014 for that price. A lot of ford dealerships are trying to get rid of the model since 2015 models are around the corner.

do what ever, new or used. but if your buying a new mustang do not go below a 13 or you will regret it later on.

unless however you are interested in the 15's, but personally they look like new-age trash, mine as well put Hyundai on the back of the car.

I'm 100% certain you could get a brand new base gt for less.

You could wait till 2018 or 2019 and pick up a phased out 2015 for cheaper.

I dont think it is a good deal. I got my 2012 GT premium in May '13 with 11k miles for that price. Honestly I would go with the 13', I am a big fan of the front end.

Please give a reason why he would regret getting a 2012 or is this just your personal opinion?

I bought my 2014 base gt track pack for 28k brand new 3 months ago.

With the deals and rebates on the brand new 14s right now I wouldn't buy used.

I plugged the following into Truecar (not the best you can do, either):

Mustang GT
Manual transmission
FP8 package
3.73 gears
Ruby Red Tricoat paint. (the FP8 package plus red looks fantastic)

$27,148
This is a fairly nicely optioned out GT as well. The base stripper is $25,527. $26K can be had on these all day long without trying. Once the 15s come out, they will practically be begging you to get the V8s off their lots.

I don't think its a good deal for the mileage unless you are particularly into that model and color. As others have said, you can still get a new 2014 GT at a great price but you had better move fast, they are moving quick in my area.

I picked up a 2011 GT/CS 6 months ago with 5500 miles and it was a CPO car for 27000 otd. I like the 11 to 12s better but that car can be had cheaper.

What options? The price difference without negotiations can be as vast as $9-11k between a base and a fully optioned out convertible.

Just to give you an idea, I bought mine in April, it was a red 2013 with 20838 miles for 22900.
I'd go with the 2014 with track pack, might save you a tune at around the same price
