keep in mind this will be my first test drive on the new mustang, and i don't know if the seller will want to be in the car with me or not.
i seen this guy driving one time, the only 11+ gt in town, so me being in the market, keeps a keeeeeeeen eye. 2011 mustang gt 5.0
its been on the market for atleast a month, these kind of sales go pretty slow around here. he was originally askin like 36,xxx
I live in a isolated (sadly the capital) city in Alaska, no roads in or out. and our local ford dealership caved in due to bad management. so buying a mustang new would require barging/ferrying it in either way. just a matter of from where, and could be as much as 1200 dollars straight from seattle. so buying locally would be awesome, and this seems like a good jump. it has what i wanted on it, plus more then i care for. all i really wanted was just 3.73 gears, and preferred hids, and i really want SG but i could settle for red.
anything i should do during a test drive? it has 1300 miles if you didn't follow the link, with the manual. i have done my research about the tranny, and engine tick. and hopefully it will be a somewhat chilly day when i test drive so i can see if it is suffering from the engine tick on a cold start.
any recommendations on how to test if the tranny is having issues like the claims? i haven't driving a new one so i have nothing to compare it too, i currently drive a manual 00 Focus, but the person i bought it from put a "new clutch" in it, and i think he just did a half ass job cause it is really notchy, by no means unbearable, but it just clunks into gear and just is not smooth. i so i think anything would be better then what i got now.
i kinda like the idea of buying slightly used, as then i don't have to exactly worry about the first oil change and if the engine tick will show up, because assuming (i will ask ofcourse) he has done it, the odds of it happening now vs not happening at all would happen after the first oil change.. so i've noticed.
