I have a '12 Brembo car, (details in my sig)....Anyhow I had the opportunity to rent a '13 V6, auto, convertible car for the next few days and I got to drive it alot today.
The warm sunny skies in Phoenix right now might have biased my opinion somewhat, but I think this a very nice car. The motor is smooth and strong...and I must say it does sound great when you reallty wind it up. It is definitely a quick car when you "give it the beans".
The suspension is definitely softer and the car rides smoother/quieter than my brembo car, a combination of the different tires and springs I'm guessing. I don't see this as a bad thing, just different. On a day to day basis this would be a very nice car to commute in.
I have an MT-82 in my mustang, so this is my first drive in one with the auto....it seems ok, but if your really want to make time the sport shift mode is a must.....the tranny does seem slow to downshift at times...but overall it works very nicely in my opinion. And the convertible top....love it down, at least I love it here on a 78 degree sunny day. Cant say I've really driven it at anything over 30mph with the top up, but it is hard to see out of when backing up.
The display between the gauges is really cool, I do find my self looking at them to the point of distraction though.
Anyway, i would like them in my '12, and though I've read a number of threads complaining of probs/failures with them I'm a little jealous.
The stereo system and sync.. this car does have sync, but I find it more difficult to setup/use since its not the touchscreen nav system like mine. For some reason it stopped playing music via the USB port as soon as I paired the bluetooth w/ my iPhone. I'm sure its my fault, but I'm too lazy to figure it out since I'll only have it a couple more days. Beyond that the sound system sounds just like mine...adequate, but "muddy".
To sum it up I really enjoyed my sunny day in this '13 vert, and if I had the money I'd probably have one of these as a daily driver and save the brembo car for "hooliganism and other assorted activities".
