I was just wondering with all you guys, are truly satisfied and joyed you bought your V6 stang? On a scale 1-10? I've been set on a GT, but lately I've been thinking about gas, insurance, reliability (5.0's don't rate as well), etc. And the V6 seems to have enough power nowadays and exterior wise I can make one MEAN looking V6 for a couple thousand. So how are you satisfied in:

Performance wise?

Interior wise?

Daily Driver wise?

Everything in general?

What should your V6 use or what are they lacking? Thanks everyone!

Love it.. Gas is better then the GT.. 305 horses are good enough for my daily driver... Insurance is good too... And plenty of power and response after tune... Satisfied until I turn 25 lol..

The new V6's have slightly less than a 99-01 4v cobra, which is pretty impressive horsepower wise. I think they had 320 stock? Not entirely sure on that. 20 years from now, all stock v6's will be capable of crazy horsepower numbers too, so i wouldn't even worry about it. Theres always going to be a faster one next year. All of these cars are getting nicer motors. The guy i work with has a v6 camry sport model, and that he claims has 280 hp.

Performance wise? I hate the hesitation on the pedal on mine, but it's normal since it isn't cable. But when I get on it, thing can fly sometimes.

Interior wise? Love mine, despite how big mine is. It's an 05 and inside is a bit spacey.

Daily Driver wise? It's great as a daily driver. Gas is good, unless I get on it a lot. Or stop and go a lot.

Everything in general? In general, for it being a test car, after fixing some stuff, it's a really decent car. I'm in LOVE with my car completely.

What should your V6 use or what are they lacking? It's lacking a little performance, but I don't expect too much performance, that's left to the V8's. Could use mods but parents have voiced too many problems and are trying to get me not to. So right now it's stock. But no V6 stripe, GT wing, and gorgeous color. So I'm content and satisfied with it's stock look.

Overall: Probably an 8.

satisfied performance definitely. maybe it's because I doubled my horses getting rid of my 2.0mazda but in definitely all smiles driving. exterior 8/10 nothing I can't fix up actually it's more fun having things to do. my one complaint is I didn't get synch. it's a must have for a manual. seats are good but my friends recaros are so nice and they're really expensive so if I did it again I'd try and get the dealer to throw that in

Man I actually test drove a Camry V6..... Woah!!!!! It sure as hell surprised me and the salesman when I Got on it hard (not even floored it) and the front tires squealed!!

Definitely if I had truly desired a sporty sedan, that is what I would have Gotton. Honestly prolly would have been my second choice to the mustang.

But I really wanted a coupe and really really wanted rear wheel drive...

Dealer ain't gonna throw in a $1500+ option.... I had to be on the verge of walking away from the deal just to get all terrain floor mats!

That hesitation goes away with the performance tuner when a zero lag throttle response is made. Put a 91 Hybrid tune along with 3:73 gears and that lacking down low power is not a issue anymore.
