Exclamation Should I buy a 2010 GT?

I am new here. I have been going back an forth on purchasing a 2010 GT it has 30k miles on it. What is holding me back I have a 2000 v6 with 84k miles on it that is paid off and there is nothing wrong with the car. I recently traded in my silverado for a jeep wrangler 2.4l 6speed. I like the looks of the jeep and like that it can basically go anywhere. But it leaves something to be desired when I drive it. I mostly drive my mustang because it's faster. My problem is this. If I trade the jeep for the GT then I will not have something to haul misc stuff with ( furniture, lawn mower). How many of you just have a mustang? I know if i trade in the 2000 v6 They will not give me anything for it. So that leaves the wrangler. I need some help on this I have been going crazy trying to figure it out and could use some outside opinions on it.

If you just need a second vehicle to haul stuff around how about trading your mustang for an old cheap pickup like a ranger or s10? Then you could put the jeep toward the car you want.

what do you think of the 2000 v6 vs the 2010 GT huge upgrade worth paying $360 Per month?

Only you can determine what makes sense financially. How much is that 2010? To me it would make more sense to look at a 2011+ for the major engine upgrade.

The 2010 was 19,900 But I found a 2012 GT for 21,900 So im leaning to the 2012. My problem I cant decide if it worth taking $4000 balance over to the new loan from the jeep or just have both of them. or just stick it out until the current mustang I have craps out..
