    Looking to buy a used 2009 GT 500 coupe. Dealer has one on lot with very low miles nearby. I was curious if there was anything in particular I should inquire about (recalls, notices, etc.) and when I drive it, what I should be looking out for. I've owned a 2008 GT and Bullitt in the past, so I'm pretty comfortable with how it should drive, but given it's a much different car, was looking for some insight. Thanks much.

    Clutches have been an ongoing issue. Generally 07-08 but there have been some, up to present years, that have been replaced. In particular have the Ford dealer near you run the OASIS report on this car (they'll need the VIN) and find out what's been done to it.

    Tx much. They ran the OASIS for me and it looks like the previous owner had the clutch/pressure plate repaired under warranty. Not sue exactly if it was replaced or repaired.
