I bought the V6 because of overall TCO. Cheaper up front and cheaper to run. I needed a daily driver for my insane 130 mile round trip commute at the time but I didn't want a boring car, i.e. an Accord. These V6's are hardly boring. It's quite spirited and fun to drive and looks great. A V8 woulda been more fun overall but it's complete overkill for a commuter car. I may get one someday, I do like the 2012's the best.

I do regret getting the lame 2.73 base rear end and base suspension. I shoulda got the performance package. That woulda been a fun fk'ing car!

2012 Kona Blue V6 6MT Pony package. 2.73 rear end, comfort package, Charcoal leather interior.

Driving it since 5/09/2011

Mods: Ford Mustang STB, Epco Rally stripe shifter ball, AFE non-oiled Air filter, Airaid mid pipe, GT500 Splash Guards, Ford Racing Rear Sway bar links and bushing kit, BMR rear LCA's, Bilstein monotube shocks, Eibach Pro-kit Springs.
