I would go with the one with 40k. Didn't you even want a premium also but it didn't really fit the budget?

I do but now that I have saved up 12k I think I could probably even get a new base 5.0 . Just alot of options and debating how I feel spending 20k on a car with high miles. So I simply just ask I would ate to regret a 20k purchase lol

Keep looking bud, you'll find one with less than 10k on it, in your budget. This is the time of year to buy.

To be honest if I got a base model the only and I repeat only thing I would miss is my color. I love the accent light not only in gauges, door sill and up holder and footwells I like how there integrated :(

if you are going to drive the crap out of it super low miles is really useless for you. I have a 2012 that has 16k on it (got it last March....) its a daily and vacation car so I dont really mind.

If you plan to baby it, garage kept, and you only drive when you want or when its nice (or dont drive much to work etc) then fine one with low miles in the area of 5-10k a year.

I have 42k on mine and she drives the same (well better due to modifications) than she did with less than 10k. But why would you put on a Paxton and expect to break something and hope it's covered under warranty? If you can't afford to break it you can't afford to mod it.

Either way, 20k seems high with 40k miles, people but new unmolested 13's for 25-27k all day.

Good luck with whatever your decision may be

I'd go with the new '13 base.

I personally just feel a lot more comfortable buying a new, or very slightly used car that's still covered under warranty. These cars are made for performance, and yes, they are made to be driven hard. However, they are not made to be driven stupidly. You never know how the previous owner drove his car.

Even at 40k miles, you still have your 5yr/60k mile powertrain warranty left... But I would still go with the new, or try to find one under 10k miles.

I agree with vik you never know how was that car driven, in case you have problems with the car ford won't help because its warranty it's over or it's approaching to its end. I would prefer to know what I'm doing to my car from 0 miles instead of getting a car that already has a really good amount of mileage

Good advice and I found out I can get xplan pin through my work. I guess we are partners with ford so il see how competitive it is with usaa. They didn't say which plan it was just alot of people say that got tons off. And a new 13 base model would be nice keep warranty mod over time and probably lower apr as well
