Purchased As New
I had been looking for used 2011-12 base V-6 Mustangs, but found that I could buy a new 2013 for $1000 more than used.
My Mustang is the base V-6 with the only options being automatic transmission and Recaro seats and it has no spoiler or tape stirpes.
I once owned a 2007 Premium Mustang, but traded it for a 2011 Fusion because the seats were so uncomfortable. The Recaro seats solved that problem. They hold you firmly and have lots of support for the lower back and hips. The only down side to the seats is that they only come in black and show every piece of lint, dirt, and dust. They also block your rear vision more so than the standard seats but the comfort makes up for that.
I specifically wanted the base Mustang because it does not have Sync, which I hate in my Fusion, or touch screen displays. There are simple gauges on the instrument panel. Simple buttons, dials, and knobs to control the A/C and radio. There is none of the touch screen garbage the is now almost standard on most new cars. Anyone can get in the car make a quick scan of the dash and figure out how everything works. You don't have to read 20 pages in the owner's manual to figure out how to tune the radio or turn on the A/C
The car has the 2.73 rear axle and is turning a tick over 1500 RPM at 70mph. I recently drove the car on a 1200 mile trip and got between 29 and 31 mpg with two people in the car and a truck full of luggage and am getting 20 -22 in town. The car has more power than the 2002 GT that I once owed and it is leaps and bound better than the 2007 that I owned in refinement and fit and finish. The 3.7 V-6 is light years ahead of the old 4.0 in power, smoothness, and noise level. I love my new Mustang
