Base or Premium?

Sounds like a nice car!

I always have "new-car-itis", but I just can't justify selling mine with the 15's right around the corner. I have a 2011 GT premium with 373's and only about 10K miles on her. She still looks new. It's just been too good of a car to sell. I plan on having it paid off (or pretty close) when the 15's come out. I figure at that point I may order a new one. I'm hoping for 475-500 HP from the MY15

Fact is, as much as I would like a new car every two years the guy in me that wants to retire someday just can't do it, with that said, I am glad to hear you got a good price for your trade. Not a bad deal at all.

base. ive never really been a fan of leather, so i saved some cash. i wanted nav, but i would have ended up w/ a 40k sticker. if i spent that much, i might as well get the boss, ya know? mine was a great car, too. im not gonna lie, i got kinda teary eyed when they pulled it away, lol. i bought the car for my wife, and she wanted a cs/auto. i got tired of driving an auto, so im making the switch. thanks, man!

That "Below Invoice" and rebates and X-Plan jazz, is all the biggest load of crap I've ever heard. <That's all a bunch of dealership double talk to make you think that You are the special customer that is getting his car super cheap, and the dealership is only making $200 on it. Yeah right. I have some ocean front property in Indiana for sale.

The only thing that matters is the bottom line, or what are the payments for how long?

btw, I'm one of those guys that don't make up excuses for borrowing money for something I don't need. I don't owe anyone in this world a penny. Get yourself out of debt and it's amazing how fast the money piles up. Ok, I'll get off the soap box and shut up now.

25k for a BASE model with 16k on it? That is what hell of a deal. I'd trade in too if they offered that.

Last summer a couple dealers had a bunch of used base model GTs with autos selling in the 26k range with about 10-15000 miles on them.

Last summer when I got my 2012 the dealer gave me 16,500 for my 2006 GT which had 23k on it and about 1200 dollars in body damage as well. I jumped on it and unloaded it. The dealer then listed the car for 19,500. When you factor in the body damage repair on it and listing price, they are not making a ton of money on that car.

This is very good advice. I wasnt a believer in Carmax either. I took my 2008 F-150 Lariat to them after being offered 19k by the dealer last summer. It took all of an hour from the time I got there to the time they wrote me a check. I had a clear title in hand. So they would just write you a check for the difference. I bet they give you 27-27.5 for it. Especially if it is clean and with the mileage you stated. Dealer offered 19k. Carmax gave me 23k. Best 7 miles I ever drove. Only thing that would make Carmax tell you no is if it has previous accident claims attached to the VIN. If no accidents then it is a short and easy process. Find a Carmax....it is worth the trouble. Did I mention it was my own dealer that Im employed at that only offered me 19k? They eat their own in this business. Always have....

I apologize for the rant. I get started, and don't know when to shut up.

Dealers pizz me off. I had my Mustang ordered for 6 weeks. The day before I was to take ownerership, the price jumped $582.

KBB is pretty much a waste of time on calculating trade in value... Dealers look at what they can give for one at the auto auction and value your car from there(wholesale)... Use the Black Book value and it is a more realistic number to what a dealer will give you for trade... why do you think people call them stealerships?

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Good choice on the '13s.

What with the revised engine, LED fogs, and other improvements you're much better off with a 2013 now in the long run.

and new car-itis is really hard to deal with I know.

yeah, how about that revised engine that makes the exact same dyno numbers as the MY 11/12 and eliminates oil squirters (desirable for many people).

now once they get direct injection....that will be a truly revised engine worth upgrading too IMO
