To those that have traded 2011/2012 for 2013........

Do you think it was worth it?

Do you regret making "the move"?

I know right now the 2015's are a big question mark BUT you know they are most likely going to be VERY nice. I just hope they dont put the blue oval on the hood like seen in rendered pictures

I havent had a 12 or 11 but I think it all comes down to what you want out of the car. I think the track pack and recaros really seperates the 13s from the previous models. But for someone who will not road race the car or does not really care about the recaros or track pack getting a 13 would probably be a waste. And Yes I too have thought about waiting for the 2015s. But I do not like buying a first year model and you can play that waiting game forever. When 2015 comes there might be something else just around the corner that you could wait for that maybe better. And the same game can be played over and over again.


2013 Gotta have it Green Mustang GT-Track pack, Recaros, Koni Yellows, Steeda Race Springs, 25% Tint, AMR Wheels, FRPP Sport Axleback, Adjustable Panhard bar, Whiteline Transmission Mount, Hawk DTC-60 Race Pads.

Traded in 2011 for 2013. Was worth it, but I got a great deal. If not the deal, I would have kept 2011.

Not for that new face.. If they put "Ford" on it anywhere in large letters it will be a killer. The blue oval especially.

Too bad they were able to buy their logo back recently. :-(

I'm really happy with my '12 but even if I did like the '13 better I can't imagine trading already as it would be financial suicide.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

+1

Next trade I make will be towards a '14 near the end of their cycle or when the new model comes out in '15.

For now, the '12 is just fine with me!

My wife and I really like the 13s but as some have said it would be financially dumb to do. Plus the 15s could very well be worth waiting for. I love my 12!

I still love my 11. it only has 10K miles on it. It still looks new!

I think I'll order a 15 when they become available and sell the 11 at that point. I sold my 10 after having it for 1.5 years, Not going to do that again.

I do plan on getting a late '13 (or if I must wait, a late '14) but I'm not going to offload the 12 to get it, it will be the second car. In fact whenever we get a another new car years from now, we'll still have our 12. My wife and I love this car so much we'll never part with it, willingly.
