Thinking about trading in the V6 for a GT maybe. Found a 2014 6 speed manual 23k miles for 20k. How's that sound? My currently ride is in immaculate condition with 60k on it. Not sure what I want to do.
I got my base model '13 M6 GT with 7k miles for $26, so id say yours is a pretty good deal. I'd say go drive it.
I look at it like this. I've played drums for about 15 years now, and a few years ago guitar center had this wicked drum kit out on display... It was a chunk of change, and i wanted it, but i didnt think i wanted to pay it. Every few months i'd stop in and look at the kit and get to dreaming again. Finally after like 6-8 months of this i just bought it. I figured if its still on my mind after all this time i obviously want it you know. How long have you been thinking about a GT? Is this one just a good deal that caught your eye, or have you been looking?
I know the feeling. It was between headers and a catted x pipe or a new Stratocaster American Standard. I was single at the time and bought both . I'm married now and would have had to pick one
That wouldnt be the end of the world. I'd miss me some V8 rumble, but when you can make mid to high 500s with basic bolt ons and a tune its hard to complain.I agree with you olerodder. Like most car makers, Ford is going with the smaller turbo motors. EcoBoost 4 cylinders will be the new 6 cylinder and the EcoBoost 6 cylinder will be the new v8
Those letters are a come on to get you in the dealership. They will deduct for mileage, mods they don't like. You have to go in to see the real numbers before you should even considering a GTYeah, I'm torn as well. With all the mods I've done, I'm not sure I want to trade up. On top of that, I like the sort of retro look of my 2014 over the newer designs.

Now, I got a letter from a local dealership wanting me to upgrade to a new car...
- Offering me 16,860.00 for mine.
- I "may" receive an additional 5,850 more than the estimated value.
- Plus trade in on a new Ford of my choice at a discount substantially lower than the retail selling price and may save me up to 2000 off the MSRP.
- Plus, lol, 500.00 and an additional 500+ plus 0% financing for 72 months.
Sounds too good to be true, and like I said, not really crazy about the new style, but its soooo tempting. And if I did make a deal, I'd feel as if they somehow managed to put one over on me and give me buyers remorse.
My negotiating skills suck and I have no one to go with me to tell me if I'm crazy when I go "I don't care what it costs, just give me the keys...".
my 3.31 5.0 with 27" tires would get the same MPG as my fiance's 3.55 v6 with 27" tires. Hwy* granted, she did return better city MPG.that^^^^ is it worth time to look = yes, but only if you can afford one.
side note: I compared two runs to my friends V8 both in the 100 mile or so length and driving with each other and there is a 15% difference. Do NOT get a V6 expecting a huge fuel savings. Yeah 15% is significant but the real number is $200-300 per year
This is not realistic at all. You're looking at 10-14k for a V6 with low mileage. A GT with 25k-50k is at least 19k plus. More like 22k on average.Also it is a good deal but in my area if you look for a gt with higher mileage like 35000 40000 miles you can get them probably for what they would give you for your car. Sure it won't have all the packages but still.
