looking at buying an automatic 2016 mustang GT with 60k miles. Was wondering if anyone brought up theirGTs this high and what's the things I should look out for. The car is CPO.
I'm at 54,000 (almost 56,000). I have not had any major issues with anything in the vehicle to date. Mine is a 2015 GT Premium basically has every option except the PP. Mine is also an automatic. I bought it because the car was 3 months old with 2300 miles on it and I got about a $12,000 discount on it.
I did have to have something replaced on the front suspension. They just replaced all of it on the driver side. It was making a clanking sound of some sort when I'd go over bumps. There was an issue with the throttle body making a ticking sound. Those are the only problems I've had so far in the vehicle. Warranty took care of both of those for me so it was not an issue.
I changed the oil every 5,000 miles for the first 20,000 miles and now I run full synthetic in it. I'm still in love with the car, for most people that's not saying much. But I am OCD and I tend to not like things for a long period of time, if it has flaws I'll find them. That's not to say the car is flawless, but I feel Ford did an excellent job with these. My previous car was a 350z that I purchased brand new, by the time I reached 50,000 miles I was disliking the car and by the time I reached 60,000 I hated the car.
I would say about 65% of my driving is done on the high ways (possibly more). I tend to set the cruise control between 85-95MPH while on the high ways. I'm also driving on California roads which are in horrible shape. I'd say the car doing well. I do have fun it, but I'm not constantly hot rodding it or getting on it.
I think if the vehicle has been taken care of and driven similarly, it should be a solid car for while. But how many people set their cruise control at 95?
