Let's try again a different way: on various sites on ford mustang, a number of problems seem common or recurrent (paint blistering, corrosion on the hood, for instance). Are you aware of some models to avoid between 2005 and 2010? 2006 and 2007 seems with the highest number of complains, and 2010 is also called the "worse model". I am tempted by a 2010 model and will be pleased to have your feedback. Kind regards, J

If you're thinking of a 10 get an 11. Cyclone is so much better.

Well 2010 was the last year for the 3 Valve 4.6 Engine. Now is a good time to get killer deals on 2016 models that are left over dealer stock. Every year you look at you will find the good bad things. But go with what you like and make sure it has a clean carfax report.

I have an environmental conscience...Yes, I know :lol:, it is like that, V8 is too much... Actually I should look at an Ecoboost V4, but in my mind Mustang = V8 or V6... So V6... 2011 then?

Correct. The 3.7L V6, named Cyclone, of the 2011+ would be the V6 to have if you're in the market.

Hi 0Nativepower, it is all my dilemma for the V6: many advise the cyclone, so 2011+ models, but there are actually 2009-2010 models on the market with the retro look I am looking for (60' kind of)... mmmm. Search is good, but has to stop :)

I'm a 4.0 fan I don't think they're that bad. Let's face it no matter what you get there's always something faster. You can pick up a 4.0 pretty reasonable and in my opinion they have been a very reliable motor. I have one with 110,000 miles on it with a roots supercharger on it. It's impressive for a six cylinder. However it's not what I would call a eco-friendly motor. I'm sure it would be better if I could keep my foot out of it ?. That being said the only thing I know of that you have to watch out for on the 4.0 is the thermostat housing. Cheap easy fix.

If you have your mind set on the 3.7 There is a guy On here right now trying to sell 2014 3.7 V6 with a pro charger already installed for 16,500 Looks pretty nice in the pictures

Model-wise, 2010-2014 are definitely my preference. However, I just got an '09 V6 4.0 because it was an awesome deal lol. And now the '09 look is starting to grow on me. As for complaints and issues with the years I think it has a lot to do with the maintenance on the vehicle. I haven't really heard consistent complaints regarding a certain year. But that's just from my recollection.

I would probably go with a later model an 07-09. Later models general have the issues corrected from the earlier models, plus more features on the interior. Only maintenance issues you might have are just replacing normal parts (fuel filter, spark plugs, etc.). Mine is a 06 4.0, only "real" issue I had was the coolent plastic hose conector break, which is a common issue. I like the 05-09 look, even more then my 2012 Boss 302. The only major pro about 11-14 is the bigger engine, I would rather buy a 15 or newer. You get the better handling and all the bells and whistles. Just my personal opinion!

Well, according to my manual, the 3.7L engine is known to have trouble on replacing the spark plugs and they recommend to take it to the mechanic or they can break, as for my 09 4.0L had some issues with cooling system( thermostat housing twice) but i have had nothing serious with over 130k miles
