    Default Looking at 11+ Mustang GT

    I am an old head Stang fan having owned a few fox bodies, SN95's, New Edge and just a 09 GT/CS. I am looking at getting a 2011 and newer budget build prefer automatic. What are the some issues or things to look for. The latest one I liked had 142k miles and an auto trans. I wanted something that is quick stock for now and maybe upgrage/mod later.

    They seem to be pretty solid cars. Other than the manual trans having some issues (mainly people not knowing how to drive), I'm not aware of any major issues on the 11-14 cars.

    Early on, tuners were melting either cylinder 4 or 8 because of less cooling at that part of the block. Once tuners figured it out, those issues stopped.

    The 11-14 are good cars and cheap. I have a guy that purchased a 2011 with 89,000 miles on it for 13k and added a blower for $7000 with a few upgrades and is making 700 rwhp. Total investment less around 20k for a 700rwhp car with blue tooth and AC. Not bad.....

    Pretty solid cars, Ive had mine since new (2012 Auto Car) no real big issues only thing that has really happened is the diff was leaking from the axle vent and even then it was mild drips on the garage floor. Keep up with regular maintenance and the car won't give you any problems. If I personally could find a vert that wasn't ratted out Id buy another one.

    I finally got a 2012 GT from TX from auction (hail damage) and it was a BLAST. Only problem it was way loud with no mufflers or cats and it had a aftermarket shifter that gates were really close. It took me awhile to stop starting in 3rd gear. It had a tune (tuner was in back seat) and intake and when I could shift well and was away from congested areas I would get on it and brought a smile to my face. The exhaust was so loud and my neighbors window are a few feet off of my side drive so I would creep in at idle in 3rd gear. I ended up selling it in pursuit now of a automatic with some sort of sound deadening exhaust lol

    I have customers that have pushed it over 800. Myself I would stop at 750 and enjoy it for 200,000 miles.

    I sold it a few days after I got it. It had clean CO title but dimples from hail. It had more options incl Brembo brakes plus CAI, exhaust and tune. To me just different cars not necessarily one better than other although after driving auto version I luv it.
