  1. I owned a 1999 then a 2001 Mustang GT convertible many years ago. I recently retired and am now looking at again owning a 2007-2009 Mustang GT convertible. Are there any issues I should be aware of? I am looking at picking up a car with under 55k miles, A/T and heated, leather seats. I have found several 2007s priced from 16.5k to 22k. Is that a normal range? Thanks.
     
  2. Yes, the S-197's hold their value well, not to say negotiations can't be made. 2007's and 2009's are really a trouble free year, 2008's for some reason had trans issues atleast manuals did.
     
  3. Thanks.
    I just found out that the 2011 V6 has over 300 HP. That is more than my 2001 GT had! Maybe a GT is unnecessary. Wife can't drive a manual, so, it looks to be A/T all the way. This will be my DD.
     
  4. Or your wife could just not drive it.
     
  5. That's why I don't have a 2010 Corvette convertible anymore. One reason I am looking at a Mustang convertible:) After 39 years of marriage, it is much easier to say yes dear than to try to argue! A happy wife is a happy life!

  6. 2011+ V6 Auto has 305 HP and gets 31 MPG, how can you lose:D
     
  7. The more I look at the Mustang, the more I agree with your statement. I really need to rethink what my daily driver is going to be. Since the 2007-2009 GTs are relativly pricey, the 2011/12 V6 with a Pony Package is looking quite reasonable. Thanks.
     
  8. I seem to getting along just fine.........:shrug:
     
  9. Convo's have some weird water issues. I know other users on other forums that park their car on a incline, some steep some not, and they have varying headaches.

    Not sure if they fixed this though..
     
  10. Ross,

    If your ? is about the post above, I believe he's referencing the fact that one person on here and one on another forum reported an issue with leaks. My son and I both have verts, and have not had any problems. I'm only aware of two complaints total.
     
  11. oh duh......water leakage on the vert top.....ok...haha :doh:
