Good deal on 2012 V6 convertable?

Ever since totaling my 2013 V6 I have been left wanting another. Specially one with 3.73 gears!

I managed to find a 2012 V6 auto convertible for 11k with a clean title and 78K on the clock. It does have some wear and was a rental for the first 30K or so and a lease thereafter.

Im thinking I could wait until the middle/end of feb and offer 10K(finance) since its been at the dealer the last 3 months and marked down twice already.

Its white and has the typical long nails type cosmetic damage inside on the knobs and steering wheel but for the money I dont think I can do better.

Obviously ill be installing 3.73's if I do buy it, What do you guys think?

I'd run from that car. If you alow for 20,000 miles a year, that is tons of miles for a 12. And you know how rental cars are treated. I understand impatience, I have not patience. This being winter there are bound to be more cars showing up. I'd wait for the new Mustang convertible to come out, the s197 verts will take a hit in value when that happens.

More than 10K is really pushing it for me, of course my last stang was a previous "rental" car till 40k so I know sort of what to expect. In my area, Western NC, there really isnt much of a selection if any. The dealers that get cars like mustangs all have them priced much higher than they are in the big cities. I assume my local dealers do this because they pretty much have no competition.

The only other options are some 2011 manual V6's I found in Atlanta for 12-13K. But they were one owner cars.

I hesitate on those because I dont exactly want to learn manual on a 300+ HP car. But I might have to!

If it checks out mechanically and fits in with your plans that is a good price obviously.

Rental companies do maintainance regularly and not everyone beats on them....

But remember the value will be lower and resale and put people off since its on the Carfax.
